Heard from the Wednesday night players this afternoon.

Gaming for this evening has been cancelled. Three of my four players are down with illness (possibly the flu, but maybe just a bad cold). That said, their GM isn’t feeling all that good at the moment, either.

I was looking forward to gaming this evening with the Wednesday night crew, as I was thinking we might bring the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game to a conclusion for now, but I guess such is not to be.

Perhaps next week.

Day 28 – What film/series is the biggest source of quotes in your group?

Egads. This one is tough because I have three gaming groups.

That said, I think that The Musketeers, Babylon 5, the Star Wars films, and classic novels and book series make up the majority of quote sources for my gaming groups.

RPGaDay in August – August 17th: RPG Owned but Not Played August 24, 2017

Day 17 – Which RPG have you owned the longest but not played?

*sigh*

The RPG that I’ve owned the longest but have never run or played is the Agone RPG, published in French by Multisim, and then published in a short attempt to sell the game in North America. Based on the novels of Mathieu Gaborit. Agone is set in the land of Harmundia, also known as the Twilight Realms. The game was published in French starting in 1999 by the now-defunct company Multisim, which also translated five books into English starting in 2001. There are over 30 books and supplements for the game published in French.

However, my not running it isn’t strictly true. My players actually played a couple of sessions of the game, but decided they couldn’t handle the somewhat complicated French designed mechanics, and didn’t like the dark nature of the game or the fact that player characters started off as well established characters. It’s a game I yearn to run, but alas and alack, never will again.

*sigh*

Getting ready for Sunday afternoon gaming.

I’m not sure whether I’m running a roleplaying game (the only one I’ve got nothing ready for haha is Torg: Eternity, so I’d be running “On a Wing and a Prayer” if that’s what we do) but I’m not sure what SteveR and Tammy will want to do.

In the meantime, I’m running late so I need to get upstairs and make some lunch. Vuhr (sp?) salad I guess, with a couple of slice of bread.

(Oh, and there will be black forest cake this afternoon, as it’s my birthday tomorrow. And I can’t eat the whole cake myself, much as I want to these days.)

Happy Birthday, Tammy! July 2, 2017

One of my good friends, Tammy Powers, is celebrating her birthday today!

Tammy doesn’t have a blog here, but I know that she reads my blog from time to time, so I hope that you see this entry, m’dear. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Tammy! 🙂

Hope you have a terrific day today, and that you celebrate your birthday with lots of flair. May you have good health, happiness, prosperity, and love over the coming year, and may there always be a warm breeze at your back!

Happy Birthday, Canada!! 🙂

Today is Canada Day. I want to wish all my Canadian LJ friends a very happy, very safe, Canada Day. Go out there and celebrate our country, the fact that we are unique and diverse, but the fact that we are stronger together than apart. Just remember to play safe! 🙂

Happy Birthday, Canada. 🙂

Home From the Ultrasound Tests June 26, 2017

I have just got home from the lab where I had the ultrasound tests done.

Suffice it to say, I’m not doing well at the moment, can barely move my left arm and shoulder, and the pain is…very bad.

The tests lasted for just under twenty minutes, but I actually passed out from the pain during the movement of the shoulder at one point for around 30 seconds.

Anyway, I’m home now, alternating ice and heat on my shoulder, and have taken some pain medication and will lie down for about an hour now.

OUCHIE!!!

Doctor Appointment and Hospital Tests May 23, 2017

Just got home from seeing the doctor (a scheduled appointment) and then going to the hospital for some x-rays.

The news is not good.

Due to the allergies and the asthma attack that I’ve been suffering from, I’ve injured my larynx because of the talking and the coughing (mostly the latter). Probably didn’t help it at all by going to CanGames 2017 this past weekend. *sigh* In addition, my throat is partially swollen shut because of the allergies and possibly made worse by the asthma attack that is persisting.

In addition, there is a serious problem with my left shoulder, made worse by my having forgotten not to use my left arm when I threw a small, plastic footstool in a fit of anger last night. 😦

The doctor sent me for x-rays of both the shoulder and my chest, and I also am waiting to hear on an appointment for an ultrasound of my shoulder (and it may be followed up with some other tests as well). He thinks I’ve got an infection in the chest now as well (bets are on con crud…anybody?). In the meantime, he prescribed for me an antibiotic and a strong anti-inflammatory. And I am not to talk for several days.

This should be fun.

And I’m just going to try and rest for the rest of the day and into the evening.

It’s late Sunday morning. The rain appears to have stopped finally, though the sun’s not coming out, and it’s somewhat cold outside.

I’m getting ready for this afternoon’s gaming session with SteveR and Tammy. The group will be foregoing it’s session of Coriolis – The Third Horizon today, instead doing some playtesting of the Tales From the Loop. Actually, doing some character creation, and a quick scenario so that I can get some practice in running the game once more before I run the game at CanGames. So I’m looking forward to the game.

In the meantime, I need to go upstairs and make some lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks. 🙂

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Today is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.

Here are 11 Facts You Need to Know About Cinco de Mayo.

And in the meantime, have a great day!
