I've not been able to write at work, and probably won't in the future, so my writing up of the adventures is sort of at a standstill. I do have the notes for a few Traveller runs to type in, but the notes I had on the last Horror run... Were scant. At best. They were SO scant that the GM was winging it more than usual! Worse, given that my laptop has a bad lead between the screen and the body, I'm not bringing it to games- at least not til its fixed. (If you close the laptop, the screen won't relight til you get JUST the right position- thus, bad connection)

So. this is a somewhat quick summary of what happened to Our Heroes last time. Ben, who plays Roy, was unable to attend, to he got fiat-ed to his 'employers at MIB. Our other heroes are:

Bill Vicklin- Up and coming monster hunter. Bill is a little crazy, and getting worse as things go darker and darker for him and his friends. He has a longcoat with an enchanted pocket that he can store disturbing amounts of ordinance within, and the uncanny ability to use ANY form of firearm.

Jackie Tall- A woman with dwarfism, Jackie has gained the ability to raise the dead, in additiuon to her other telepathic abilities. This is eroding HER sanity and self control, and she may eventually become the 'Evil Queen' in truth rather than just fantasy.

Greg Poulte- A motorcycle wrencher and biker, Greg is an on-again, off-again Buddist and full-time martial artist. He currently has the spirit of Doctor Beck within him, and the good doctor is showing him how to manipulate reality to a limited extent- Doctor Beck is so skilled at this he can teleport himself and likely even move through time. However- Greg's mind isn't attuned to this, and the stresses could kill him.

- Are we seeing a trend here?

Lastly, the absent member- Roy Smith. Roy is a junior member of MIB. Yes, the thing from the movie, but real. He was trapped in the Abyss for many years, until he sort of just wandered out when the others were trying to seal a portal they'd inadvertently opened! Since then he's reconnected with his employers, but his loyalties are terribly torn- help his friends, or do his job? Both choices have a price.

Bad Timing )

First, I still think the best Charlie Daniel's Band song is 'Uneasy Rider'. ;)

On to other things. Tomorrow we return to the Horror Campaign, and the terrors and travails of Our Heroes. I'm WAY behind on writeups, but at least I'm only back one for Horror. I'll be loaning my Dresden Files gamebooks to Scotty so he can look 'em over, and I suspect that we might get a game-shift out of this- time will tell.

As to my OWN game, work continues. I've gotten the basics down for the adventure, and all of the city NPC's that I needed roughed out. I should have a vague map of the city, but I can fake that. In the adventure I've started the sorting out of what monsters are where and what they all have, as well as getting the experience listings set. I need a printer badly, soon.

Other than that, life continues. I cheated today for sleep, taking a couple of cold caps- I DID sleep, but I dislike the aftereffects- muzziness and waking even slower than I usually do. But I did sleep. Woot!

Now all that remains is actually finding my way to Scotty's new place in Eagan. ;)

Hokay Den!

Well, now that the funds fully cleared into my bank account I've made the monster payment to Discover, which was just under a grand. Ouch. Regardless, I needed to do it. I've indulged myself with some books and such as well, and I've got a goodly chunk of cash set aside for my trip to MFF in November- part of that gets here in August I think, with the property tax return. I'm still waiting on whether or not I have the right stop for Amtrak or not- if they don't get back to me tonight I'll send a couple more emails out and recheck the site. I vaguely recall last year they had the info posted.

This Friday is payday, and of course more bills. The mortgage payment goes out then, as well as the electric bill and cable- I'm essentially all caught up. Woot!

Thursday, in other news, I'm doing required training for work- as a security guard I have to get at least 6 hours of training every year (Oh so onerous, I know!) I just wish it wouldn't fark up my schedule. Training is dayside, of course, and they won't let me work the night before anymore- which is stupid, cos I'll be up anyway to try and keep my sleep schedule at least partly straight. I hate stupid people.

Saturday will likely be the last run of the temporary Dresden game. Whether it is or not things are set up that if [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain wants to continue he can, as can any other player that decides to run the city we came up with. I really hope the world continues on either way- its a blast. :)

Today and the next few days I plan to try and get caught up on the damned game writeups. First up will be the two Dresden runs, then the most recent Buffy Horror for the Sunday Group (even though the next run is a month from now- Easter intervenes), and finally the two Western Campaign runs. Somewhere in there I'll also finish the stories I wrote for the Dresden game and also try to work on the other short stories I've started. Agh!

And that's about it, I think. Now all I need is a lottery win!

But still before the run at least! Here's the latest Horror Campaign run. :)

Horror 34: With All Things, In Time )

Holy Crap!

Wow. I started with just barely more than four pages of notes; it's become this monster of just over fourteen pages! Anyway, enjoy. :)

Horror 33- Inconstant Memory )
realsorien: (Default)
This is the 32nd Horror writeup so far. I had 5 pages of notes, and the result is just into the 13th page in my Pages word processing program.

Horror 32: Disclosures )

Was up and down as previously mentioned. I go back to work tonight, and I'm still sick. I'm fairly sure I can go in, but I'm NOT gonna like it. The game on Sunday went well- I brought hamburger and buns and Our Gracious Hosts cooked it up for us all. Yay, I didn't have to cook! Anyway, I had a good time, but it would have been better if I'd not had such hellish drainage. :P

I slept from about 5 am til noon kinda fitfully, and if I need it I'll go back to bed. [livejournal.com profile] ataramos, if you see this, call home- you got a letter that might be important concerning healthcare! And that's about it. Back to work tonight, but at least its only three days this week. Oh- All the stuff I ordered has shipped, so with luck I should have the books by Wednesday, and the trackballs by Friday.

Last night I started work once again on the story wherein the nasty scene with the charnel pit takes place. I've gotten a few pages down, and I'm looking for opinions- I know where some problems are, specifically its damn near all dialogue with very little description or exposition. Take a look and tell me what you think. Right now its just titled 'Santa Carla', being as the inspiration for Bill and his background was the movie 'Lost Boys'.

And here it is again, with a fair bit of editing. :)

Aagh, my neck is killing me. But I got the silly thing done at last! Here it is, the latest installment of the Buffy Horror Campaign!

Horror 27- Exchanges )
realsorien: (Default)
Here's the latest writeup, once again at almost the last minute!

It's also probably the shortest writeup to date.

Horror 26: Life, and Death... )
realsorien: (Default)
Here it is, the 25th writeup of the Buffy Horror Campaign. Enjoy!

Buffy Horror 25: Fading to Black )
realsorien: (Default)
And just before it returns, here's the writeup for the last run. It was finished earlier this week, but I was waiting on a confirmation of one section from the GM, and for the letter that Greg received in the game to be sent to me by his character. But... Neither got to me. No biggie, I figure RL interfered. SO here's what I've got- I'll edit it with the extra info later if I get it. :)

Horror 24: Relations Circuitous )
realsorien: (Default)
I've now gotten the last remaining writeup done for the Sunday Group, the final episode of the last Buffy Horror set. I need to add two things- one bit I forgot while writing it, and a bit that I need to get either from the GM or the player of Greg- Its the letter that revealed that Grandma weren't no grandma!

When I get those, I'll post it up. Fortunately, there's no real rush. :)

Other than that, I have to figure out why, when I've been getting to bed at 9 AM, why I'm waking at about 1:30 PM every day. Its getting to wear on me, as I REALLY need more sleep. It isn't Spaz; it happens whether he's in the room or not.

Bleh. I'll figure it out. Unfortunately, I think I'll be crashing real early tonight; not feeling all that hot due to the neck, and due to a REAL bad diet tonight. (McDonalds, tea, chocolate ice cream, more tea...)

Well, the game went well tonight, and I'll get to writing it up relatively soon. However... I didn't sleep well today, getting about two hours. I knew I was going to be fried at work, so I decided to take along the 'Mana Potion' energy drink that [livejournal.com profile] khirsahdrgn gave me for Xmas. I waited til just before I left the game, and glugged it down.

At first, it was okay, not the worst thing I've ever drank, really. Then, moments later the aftertaste hit. I can only describe it as 'fresh vomit flavor'. NOT happy. Even worse, the taste INTENSIFIED for the next 20 seconds or so! Eurgh. Also unfortunately, it didn't help me feel more awake.

And just to make it weirder, Scotty is now intrigued and wants to try it himself! So I get to pick up a few lil bottles of the Blue Death for the Sunday Group. Oboy.

Oh- Khir? Despite the negative review of the taste it WAS a neat gift. :) Besides, I'll get my revenge when Scott has it.

In two weeks we return to the Traveller campaign for 5 runs, then it'll be onto 7th Sea!

Here it is, the latest writeup of the Buffy Horror Campaign! This is the 23rd writeup. :)

Party Stuff

Jan. 4th, 2009 05:18 am

Well, I think the party went quite well, other than a few snafu's (I ran out of flour for the dredge for the chicken, and needed to get salt for the walk and had to run out to get both, and several people didn't show up)- I think a good time was had by all, and I made WAY too much chicken! I foisted some off on attendees and the rest I've been eating along with the leftover mashed potatoes. Giftage was distributed and received, and much appreciated- I did get a couple doubles of things I already had, but that was entirely MY fault- I checked the lists I put out and sure enough I'd listed them. I won't say which were doubles tho! So, I'll head over to the stores, maybe today, and exchange them for stuff I don't have. But I STILL appreciate what I got, a lot. :) Thanks to all who showed up, and I hope you had as good a time as I did- I might not have looked it, but I DID enjoy the night. I was just REAL fried from lack of sleep, which condition was rectified afterwards, BIG time.

What happened is this. After the party I dozed in my new chair, crashing HARD for about 3 hours. I then got up and MUCKed about a bit, finally going to bed at about 5:30. I finally woke at 6 PM, having been utterly dead to the world for 12 1/2 hours! I MUCKed a bit more, then ended up napping for a few more hours before work, which is where I am now. So sleep is NOT something I'm low on now!

Anyway, it was a good party, though I don't think I ever wanna do that much chicken again! Next year... Something else!

One last thing- I'm now five or six pages into the latest Buffy Horror writeup! It'll be done prolly tomorrow night. :)

Oh, [livejournal.com profile] brellchild, [livejournal.com profile] danshrugs, Mike T and Ian H.- There are gifts waiting for you!
realsorien: (Default)
Today was the final run of the Vanguard campaign. We started it up just over 4 years ago, but it rounds out to be about 4 years given a 4 month break in there somewhere. I'm going to miss playing Goblin, as she's been a lot of fun to play...

I Wanna be in another Supers game. :P

So for at least 6 months I've got Saturdays open. Fooey.

In other news, I've set the date for the Xmas party- It'll be Friday, January 2, 2009. It'll start as usual at around 5 PM and go til whenever. I'm going to go potluck again- the main course is to be breaded boneless chicken thighs and mashed potatoes, with most of the rest being brought in. I'll talk to people about finding out what they want to bring, if anything, before the actual day, and I'll also send out email invites/notifications.

Also, I have almost all of the shopping done, and all but one of the gifts so far collected have been wrapped- that last is waiting for an additional component. ;)

There are several things coming in the mail, and they'll all arrive before Thursday next week. One item is going to be picked up for me (to be paid back) and one, for my mom, I have to drive out to Anoka- I'm getting her a gift certificate to the Vineyard resturant.

Tomorrow is the next installment of the Buffy Horror Campaign, which will be the 23rd I'll have written up. See the post previous to this on for writeup #22! Right now I'm at work- Bleh.
realsorien: (Default)
Its that time again... Actually, kinda past that time. But its as done as it'll get for now! Welcome to the 22nd writeup!

Horror 22: Searches )
realsorien: (Default)
And at the crack of the last minute I manage to get the damned thing done. I'd initially planned on writing it on the way out to MFF on the train, but I just couldn't get the mood up. I then thought I'd do it on the way home, but the unintentional audience of the person sitting next to me, combined with the fact that I scored that rare seat on the train with an outlet had me watching movies (Hellboy 2 and Wall-E (again!)) and listening to music the whole way back.

I had planned to get it done on Wednesday or Thursday night, but thatfell through when I found out I didn't have to work! So, here it is at last.

Buffy Horror 21: Music, Blood & Dust )
