Monday Morning, and Work

Monday morning. The start of the work week.

A blustery, blowy kind of day in the Ottawa valley after yesterday evening's heavy coating of snow, and the blowing snow is obscuring things for the most part.

I came in to work today via the carpool, as I wasn't sure I wanted to have to dig my car out today with that gusting wind and blowing snow. Good decision on my part.

Work is going somewhat slow this morning, being a Monday and all, but at least I've managed to catch up with a bit of the work on my desk.

Looking forward to the morning break. :)

Happy Birthday, fangirl81!

Happy Birthday, fangirl81!

Here's hoping that you have a terrific birthday today.

May the Goddess bless you with good health, good fortune, prosperity, love, happiness, and joy, and may a warm breeze blow at your back for the coming year.

Be well, be happy, and be good!

Sunday Afternoon Game Report - Yggdrasill RPG Session 7

Here's the seventh, and most recent game session report on the Sunday afternoon Yggdrasill game campaign. You can read about the previous session of the campaign in this journal entry. This post is somewhat long, so I've put it behind a cut so that folks who don't want to read any detailed rpg posts don't have to.

As mentioned in this blog journal, the Sunday players had a good time in this session of Yggdrasill. The action and the conflict in this session took various forms, culminating in the battle between the player characters and Hel's minions, a fight that looked like the outcome was going to be severely adverse to the player characters (that means "result in their deaths"). Both players seemed to have a good time as I said; while Tammy's pretty open about stuff like that, spross is pretty tight-lipped about everything, and that includes when he's playing his characters!

That's the other real problem I'm having with the game. While Tammy has a proper understanding of how she should be playing her characters, spross is struggling with the concept of being a Norseman, what it means to be Norse, and how Norsemen deal with life. Frustrating for both Tammy and me, especially because he's almost...emotionless when he plays. But that's just something I have to deal with as I game the system, so we'll see where things go and so forth.

Other than that, I've really enjoyed myself running Yggdrasill. One of the best game acquisitions I've made in the last couple of years, and it's provided me with some truly memorable gaming.
