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!!!

Scared About Today June 26, 2017

It’s been a very long day, and I’m pretty scared about something.

I have an appointment at one of the labs attached to the hospital early this afternoon to have the ultrasound done on my left shoulder.

The problem is that I am in absolute pain (think 12 on a scale of 1 to 10) every time I move the shoulder, and the fact of the matter is that I want to scream in pain when I touch the shoulder. This should go really well when he presses the ultrasound device onto the shoulder area, right?

Oh, Gods…

Anyway, time to leave work and head over to the clinic. Wish me luck.

Happy Birthday, Ellie!

Today is my goddaughter, Ellie’s, birthday. I’m not allowed to say how old she is, but speaking as a godfather, I have to say they grow up so fast!

You’re growing into a great young woman, and I am so proud of you and happy for you on this, your birthday. I hope you have a terrific day on this, your special day. May the Goddess bless you with happiness, good health, fortune, may you always have a warm breeze at your back! – and may your presents today be those that you want.

Happy Birthday, Ellie! 🙂

Getting ready for this evening’s game with the Friday night gaming group.

Not really sure what I’m running yet, as I thought that we were going to continue on with the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game this evening, but they’ve expressed an interest in playing some Torg: Eternity. We’ll see what they decide to do when they show up this evening, but in the meantime stuff to do.

I need to get some supper on the stove, as well as figure out how to keep cool at the moment. The house is uncomfortably warm at the moment.

Finished supper, so I’m just getting ready for the evening.

The Wednesday night gaming group will be meeting for the first time in a bit, so I’m rather looking forward to this. Not sure what game we’ll be doing, let alone whether it’ll be a roleplaying game or a board game of some sort. Just really looking forward to getting back to gaming with the group.

In the meantime, I need to wash up the supper dishes.

Have a good evening, folks. 🙂

TORG 1st Edition Package in Snail Mail June 21, 2017

Got a nice surprise today when I got home.

A selection of the old Torg: The Possibility Wars RPG game products arrived in the snail mail today.

I received the Relics of Power trilogy (including the GM Screen), the Living Land sourcebook, the Queenswrath supplement, and the Character Collection.

Unfortunately, I haven’t found a TORG 1st Edition Boxed Set or set of Drama Deck cards yet (for a reasonable price). 😦

In the meantime, I continue to be psyched for the Torg: Eternity RPG that will hopefully be out to Kickstarter backers in October.

Sunday Afternoon Board Gaming June 18, 2017

The Sunday gamers have left for the day, actually having departed around 4:30 pm, though stuck around for a bit afterwards as I showed him what Torg: Eternity‘s basic game mechanics are like (more on that in a bit).

Once the players arrived around 12:45 pm, we chatted for a bit, and then I gave the players the options that I had in mind for today’s gaming (see the previous post): 1) Continue the campaign of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG; 2) Start of the renewed <SkyRealms of Jorune RPG with some character generation; 3) Play a board game of some sort; and 4) Play the Torg: Eternity Free RPG Day little adventure thingie.

They vetoed 1) because they felt that…well, never mind what they felt about the game after the hiatus they’ve had. They vetoed 2) for the moment because they were concerned with my voice. They vetoed 4) because Tammy felt that Torg without the Drama Deck just wasn’t Torg, so she’d wait for the game in October or so (assuming everything works out with the Kickstarter. So in the end, it was decided to play a board game. The two players settled on Tales of the Arabian Nights, so that is what we played.

To be honest, I wasn’t feeling it for most of the afternoon and while I guess the game went all right (well, at least for Tammy it did, as well as for SteveR), I was somewhat…bored…with it. Absolutely nothing was happening for me, playing Ali Baba, other than getting Scorned and then being Enslaved towards the end of the game. Here’s a photo, not a great one, that I took of the game board and the surrounding area at one point late in the game.

We wrapped up the game around 4:30 pm, and it was clear that SteveR was the winner, based on the fact that he’d completed 2 Quests to Tammy’s 1 (and I hadn’t even finished my first one). After SteveR helped me pack up the game, I grabbed the Torg: Eternity Free RPG Day material, and for 15 minutes he went through a couple of encounters for the game using the Celebrity player character. He rather enjoyed it, and I think he regretted not playing the Torg: Eternity game this afternoon.

Once SteveR took off, I collapsed on the couch and had a cup of hot tea and half a bagel with vegetables for snack.

Haven’t said that in a while.

Getting ready to game with the Sunday group. I’ve got four options in mind for gaming this afternoon, and while I know what I’d like the players to decide to do, I’m not sure which option they’ll choose. So we’ll see which way things shape up.

I’m just starting to make lunch here at Casa Kahane, and am rather looking forward to these hot dogs in buns. Better get on with it.

Free RPG Day Torg: Eternity Stuff June 17, 2017

I actually managed to get into the local rpg and hobby shoppe, Fandom II, today for Free RPG Day, and lucked out.

It is *miine!*! hehe

The Storm really does have a name now…

I also bought a whackload of 20-sided dice (well, not a whackload, but 15 of ’em), since I didn’t want to just grab free stuff. Gotta make your local FLAGS feel good about this stuff, since the Free RPG Day stuff costs the retail store money.

Well, there’s something I haven’t said in a while, huh? 🙂

As per my post this morning, I’ve decided to game with the Friday night gaming group this evening. The players are delighted to be able to get back to gaming this evening, though what we’re playing is still up in the air. My voice is all right, but it’s not 100%, so I’ll let the players decide what we play this evening.

Basically, they have several options. We can do some board games this evening, or if they prefer and I think my voice is good to go, we can continue the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG campaign. So we’ll see. The shoulder is very bad this evening, so whatever we play, the gamers will have to bring the gaming stuff upstairs for me.

In the meantime, I need to get upstairs and clean the supper dishes, and take care of cleaning off the dining room table.
