Sunday RPG Decision

Just getting ready to head for the hotel dining room, and have some breakfast.

Will have to decide what I'm going to run today, Desolation or Hollow Earth Expedition. My back, hip, and thigh have been pretty good the last few days, mainly 'cause I haven't done a lot of walking and moving about, and to be honest, I'm not in the mood for a board game again this weekend. Besides, I suspect that Tammy would rather play a roleplaying game than do a game of Ticket to Ride: Europe again at the moment. There are deficits to running either Desolation or HEX at the moment, given that I don't have some of the materials I use. That's at the house, and there are other problems too. We'll see.

I spoke with the hotel concierge (love that word!), and I can run the game in the main lobby of the hotel, as long as we're not too noisy. Just can't face five hours or so in the room during the afternoon right now.

Current Reads

I finished reading Adam Roberts's Swiftly, and rather enjoyed the read.

I am currently about 2/3 of the way through Terry Pratchett's Making Money, and am rather enjoying the book. It's got its very funny moments, and there's some lovely puns and the like, but this book is skimpy on the footnotes (one of the elements of Pratchett's books that I really like). Still, a pretty good read, and I like Moist and all...

This Afternoon's Game

Decided in the end to run Hollow Earth Expedition instead of Desolation, the main reason being I couldn't find my notes on the Community and people and places that I'm using. They must be over at the house and everything.

We gamed down in the hotel lobby, and Tammy and spross weren't all that unhappy with the game. I felt that the game was not up to my usual, as I'm still feeling somewhat out of sorts from the cold that I had/have. Tammy spent the session trying to avoid some shady characters that were after her, while trying to set up a meeting based on a note that she received. spross spent the afternoon with his character negotiating the slippery slope of horse breeding negotiation, and the somewhat schizophrenic attentions of a the two siblings of the horse flesh breeder. Not as "action"-oriented as I would have liked it to have been, but to be honest, I was feeling under the weather.

By the time spross and Tammy left the Southway, I was feeling very bad in the right hip and the leg. Rather than sitting in a proper wing-back chair, I sat on the edge of the long couch (so I could spread out the papers I needed in front of me), and am in a serious amount of pain once more. This is not good.

Thank the Goddess I have an appointment with the doctor tomorrow.

To bed now, after some painkillers.
