It’s Sunday morning.

I thought that because of the first blast of winter that hit Ottawa on Saturday late afternoon and continued through the night, gaming would be off for this afternoon.

Shows you what I know.

I called SteveR around 11:00 am since I hadn’t heard from him about the afternoon plans. He surprised me by telling me that he was planning to come in for the afternoon’s gaming session, so I quickly also let Tammy know that we were gaming today.

We’ll be playing some The Dark Eye RPG today, hoping getting through the sample combat sequences that I have planned, and then get into the basics of the campaign. We’ll see what the best laid plans of mice and men lead to.

In the meantime, I need to figure out some lunch and then get set for the afternoon.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

It’s another Friday…

…and that means it’s time for another Friday night gaming session. So, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night group.

The pain that I’m suffering remains the same, and I’m still dealing with it in a bad way. The Friday night group are doing all right, so I’ll be running the game tonight. They’re pretty pleased about this, since we’ve missed the last couple of sessions of gaming. I’m looking forward to tonight’s game session of The Dark Eye this evening.

In the meantime, supper (of some form) needs to be made, and eaten. Then gaming.

Have a good night, folks.

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night gaming group.

I’ve been having a rough time of it lately, and the pain in my left shoulder, neck, arm and back have gotten worse as time goes on (though I’m still not talking about what’s going on with me in that regard, as there’s too much to absorb still.

In the meantime, the Wednesday night gaming group will start play in their The Dark Eye RPG campaign, starting with character creation this evening for said game.

Hopefully, this will distract me somewhat from the pain that I’m in these days. However, for now I probably should get upstairs and make some supper.

Have a good evening, folks.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Cancelled November 12, 2017

Annnnnnd gaming for this (Sunday) afternoon is cancelled.

Got a call from SteveR about 10 minutes ago to let me know that he won’t be coming out this afternoon for gaming. He’s suffering from something that sounds a lot like sciatica (though there may be another reason for this, but that’s up to SteveR to tell folks about, not me). I spoke to Tammy afterwards, and she told me that she’d rather not play without SteveR, ’cause we’re just starting the TDE campaign, but that she would get back to me possibly this afternoon and talk about her character background with me.

This means that I won’t be running the The Dark Eye RPG campaign with the Sunday players today. I’m actually annoyed about this for several reasons (none of which I’m going to go into here), all of the prep work I’ve done the last couple of days feeling like a waste (especially given how badly I feel myself in terms of the shoulder/back/arm pain that is pretty constant now). I guess we’ll see what happens next weekend with the game.

In the meantime, I’m going to try and get my head together for the day and figure out what I want to do. Other than sleep.

Due to a couple of circumstances that I’m not going to talk about here on the blog, Friday night gaming is cancelled for this evening.

While I’m enjoying the The Dark Eye RPG gaming campaign and current adventure with the Friday night group, gaming this evening is just not possible.

Nothing more to add.

Sunday Surprise Game Session November 5, 2017

And just when I thought that I wasn’t gaming today…

Around 12:45 pm today, the doorbell rings. I figure that it’s SteveR showing up, but he doesn’t just come in the way he usually does. So I go to the door and answer it, and it’s…Tammy! It turns out that we are gaming today, as she’s not on-call for this weekend or next weekend! We hadn’t really spoken during the week, so I just assumed that she was working for the day. A pleasant, if somewhat unnerving, surprise, to be sure.

So I quickly called SteveR to tell him that Tammy was here and that we’re going to game, and then I dashed into the shower for a quick one (as I’d not yet bathed, since I figured I had time before SteveR arrived (see the previous blog entry), and then went back upstairs and made myself a quick lunch. SteveR showed up just as I was near finishing lunch, and so gaming was set to go for the afternoon.

The players continued on with their preparation for playing The Dark Eye RPG, and we finally started to get into the basics of the game rules and prepping for some sample combats.

I’m looking forward to the next game session, as I’m hoping to get through the sample combats with the players, and actually get into the first adventure for the game.

It’s Sunday morning.

That means it’s time for Sunday’s gaming session. Except that’s not going to happen today. Tammy is working on-call duties for the week (which ends today), so that means she’s unavailable for gaming. While SteveR doesn’t want to play without her, he’ll likely come over as he wants to continue creating a second The Dark Eye RPG character, just in case his Hunter character dies.

This means I won’t be starting the The Dark Eye Sunday campaign today, again, which saddens me somewhat.

Here’s hoping I can game with them next Sunday.

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for another Friday night gaming session.

Well, it would normally be a Friday night gaming session, but DavidM, Angela, and Mark have all called me to let me know that they’re down with terrible cases of the flu, and they won’t be coming out this evening. I’m coughing away somewhat again myself (must be the changing weather and all the rain, among other things), but that’s another matter as I’m feeling rather…able today. I spoke to Kathy, and she told me that it would be better to take the gaming night off so…

This means that tonight’s game session of The Dark Eye RPG is off for tonight. I was really hoping to be able to run tonight’s game session, but such is not to be.

Here’s hoping that everyone is well and healthy for next Friday. Meanwhile, one day (and night) at a time.

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night gaming group.

It has been some time since the Wednesday night gamers have played an rpg game session, so I’m rather pleased that the players will be playing a game this evening. With any luck at all, I’ll be trying to wrap up the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game scenario that the players are currently involved with.

Still not feeling overly healthy myself, and the cough is very much present, but the players want to play (despite my illness) so how could I say no?

In any event, I need to grab some supper from upstairs and get to it.

Have a good evening, folks.

Getting Ready for Sunday Afternoon Gaming… Sort of October 29, 2017

I’m in the process of getting ready for gaming with the Sunday group.

Well, sort of…

SteveR is coming over, ostensibly to work on his second The Dark Eye character, but I’ll also be working with Tammy on the telephone to go through her equipment for her character for the game and to talk to her about her witch characters alchemy, curses, and spells in detail.

This will all happen if my voice decides to hold out. This is all happening while I’ve still got whatever infection I have; I’m still hacking away, and the antibiotic that I’m on will be finished with tonight’s supper.

So we’ll see how things work out this afternoon.

In the meantime, I’ve got figure out what I want to eat for lunch today.
