Sunday Morning

I'm awake this morning, but not feeling overly functional. Groggy, in fact.

I had a very difficult night falling asleep last evening, as the pain spasms in my left foot didn't subside for some time. It was very early in the morning when I finally fell asleep, I think. When I woke up this morning, the foot felt fine. At least, until I got up out of the bed. I've been having some foot spasms again since I got up, though they don't seem as painful as they did yesterday. We'll see how that goes the rest of the day.

This afternoon, I'll be playing the Atlantis: The Second Age game with the Sunday players, although spross still has to finish off his character with me, as he needs to do his equipment and weapons as well as determining his character's Destiny and Fate.

For now, stuff to do. And painkillers to take.

Father's Day

Today is Father's Day.

My own dad died when I was pretty young (around 13 or so), so I can't really celebrate today, of course.

However, I want to wish everyone a Happy Father's Day, and to take the time to be with your father today if possible, and to at least talk to your dad today by phone if you can't be in the same house with your dad. Treasure the time and the moments that you have with your father, because for some of us, well...the memories are all that we have left.

My best wishes to all the Fathers out there.

Now be good to your dad today. That is all.

Getting Ready for Atlantis Gaming This Afternoon

Taking care of some stuff around the house this morning sapped much of my energy.

To make matters worse, the painful spasms on the right side of my left foot started up again once I hauled myself out of bed, and have not abated much at all. I'm considering taking some pills again, but I don't really want to be groggy or a bit out of it when I game this afternoon.

Speaking of which, I've got a couple of things to get ready for the Atlantis: The Second Age gaming session this afternoon, so I'm going to take care of that now.

Have a good afternoon, folks. :)

Sunday Afternoon Game Report - Atlantis: The Second Age RPG Session 1 Redux Doubled

I had a good afternoon of gaming this afternoon with the Sunday gaming group today.

As mentioned earlier, I was just getting ready to start the Atlantis: The Second Age gaming campaign with the Sunday players, but spross still had to finish up the final bits of character creation involving his equipment, weapons, and his Destiny and Fate.

Once that was done, Tammy was getting a bit impatient to set to in the game system, and so things progressed to the point where once I was finished with SteveR's character, we got into some samples of combat so that his adventurer character could get a feel for combat as well. Besides, Tammy needed some more practice, since she rarely plays a combat-oriented character as she is with this game.

Suffice to say, the afternoon went really well for them both. Tammy's character got to fight several foes of differing combat skill, and I thought that she did a really good job against them, taking the fight to them. spross, on the other hand, took on the same opponents, and it was clear that his combat abilities just aren't on a par with Tammy's character's, except when it comes to taking on mooks. We did some more sample combats, and after I illustrated the sword & sorcery principle of the loot the Heroes getting being frittered away, and its possible aftermath, we finished up gaming for the afternoon.

Both players seemed to have a good time of it, and I like to think that Tammy and spross learned a bit about the Atlantis: The Second Age combat mechanics and their application the last couple of game sessions.

I'm certainly looking forward to next Sunday's game session, and the start of actual play. Goddess willing.
