In the aftermath of the events of yesterday (see the blog entry about that, and no I’m not linking to it as the memory is too painful just now), I will not be gaming with the Friday gaming group this evening.

We’re all in a state of shock still somewhat, not to mention somewhat depressed and feeling down about the matter. I’m not sure when we’ll get back to gaming, or even if we’ll get back to gaming for that matter, but for now just… No.

That’s all I’ve got to say for this evening, folks.

A Death in the (Gaming) Family February 15, 2018

It has been a very difficult day for me today, as well as for the Friday night gaming group.

When I woke up this morning, I learned from Stephanie, DavidM’s wife, that DavidM had died at 3:45 am this morning of congestive heart failure as a complication/consequence of his having a very severe case of the flu that’s going around. David had been ill for over two weeks now, and had progressively got worse to the point where he’d been admitted to the hospital a week ago today. I’m saddened by his loss, and can’t even begin to imagine or feel how his wife and family are right now.

I’ve been sort of dysfunctional for most of the day, in a state of shock for the most part (I guess), and haven’t really accomplished anything at all today other than a bit of banking and grocery shopping I needed to get done.

I’d been gaming with DavidM for several years now, and had come to really like him. His personality was sparkling, he loved his wife and two children, ages 14 and 19, fiercely, and enjoyed what he did for a living. His loss leaves a terrible void in the lives of both his family and his friends, and I still can’t believe he’s gone.

A tragedy. A horrible day for all concerned.

Another Friday night.

And another Friday night where gaming has been cancelled.

More than half of my Friday night gaming group (including myself) are down and out with a case of flu, and one of my players is so bad that he’s in the hospital. I finished the antibiotic yesterday, and am not sure whether I’m partially over the bug, as I’m hacking away (cough) and still have the mental fuzzies.

I was quite looking forward to running the Friday night session of the on-going The Dark Eye campaign tonight, but such is not to be the case. Just gotta be optimistic, and look forward to next Friday night.

It’s Friday night.

Normally, I’d be getting ready for gaming with the Friday players this evening, but gaming has been cancelled for tonight.

A couple of my players called to say that they were unable to make it out this evening due to feeling under the weather. I’m all right with this, knowing how they feel. While the Aunty (biotic) is starting to take effect, I think, I’m miserable today, am hacking a lot, have the mental fuzzies, and there’s a chance I’m running a fever.

I was quite looking forward to running the Friday night session of the on-going The Dark Eye campaign tonight, but am just not physically up to it. Just gotta be optimistic, and look forward to next Friday night.

‘Nuff said.

It’s Friday night, and so another game session with the Friday players.

I wasn’t sure that I’d be able to run the game tonight, given the fact that my house was left a shambles when the new fridge, dryer and washer were installed and all yesterday late in the day. Cleaning up the place and moving all the furniture and knick-knacks back wasn’t easy, and I’m in serious pain now in the neck/shoulder/arm/hand region, and I think I’ve put too much stress on the other arm. It’s hurting too.

Be that as it may, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night players, and am really looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to this evening’s session of The Dark Eye RPG.

Oops, there’s the doorbell. Gotta go.

Have a good night, folks.

It’s Friday night, and the good news is that the Friday night gaming group is playing this evening.

So, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night players, and am really looking forward to it.

I’m back in pain somewhat today, though it may be somewhat better after the physio session that I had yesterday. And the fact that I’ve not strained myself too much today. With the players all feeling healthy and chipper, I’m thinking tonight will be a good game session. They’re also quite pleased that we’re getting back to some gaming this evening, as this will be the first gaming session since mid-November of last year.

I’m looking forward to this evening’s session of The Dark Eye RPG, let me tell you.

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

Have a good night, folks.

Good news!

Heard from the players in the Friday gaming group. Everybody’s healthy again, and the players are ramping up for this evening’s game session.

Looking forward to it.

Unfortunately, gaming is off for this evening with the Friday night group.

While I don’t feel all that great today in terms of my head, neck, shoulder, back, arm, and hand due to the nerve and muscle issues that I’m dealing with, I had planned on trying to run The Dark Eye RPG this evening. Get the New Year of gaming off to a good start, and all that.

However, the best laid plans are wont to go astray and all that. I spoke to the various gamers over the last couple of days, and all of five of my gamers (including Ellie, unfortunately) are down with bad cases of either flu or cold or both.

So gaming this evening is off. *sigh*

Gaming is off for this evening, and for the rest of what is left of 2017, as the Friday night players do the Christmas and New Year’s things.

There’s a possibility that I might run a one-shot or two during the rest of the holiday season, but that’s not all that likely. Still, one never knows.

Once more, it pains me (no pun intended) to say this…

Gaming is off for tonight, as I’m just in too much pain in the neck, back, shoulder, and arm(s) to game tonight, as I’m really unable to focus on stuff very clearly. Kathy and the other gamers were quite disappointed at the news, but completely understand. Kathy also told me that Ellie is down with some sort of cold or virus (they hope it’s not the flu or anything like that), so she and Ellie would not be gaming tonight, regardless.

I’m sad that we’re not going to continue on with the The Dark Eye RPG campaign this evening, but such is my life at the moment. Heck, I’m lucky if I can stand at all. Going to lie down now for a while before having to get up and make supper.
