Let's roll some dice, watch some movies, or generally just geek out. New posts at 6:30 pm ET but only if I have something to say. Menu at the top. email@example.com on Mastodon and @gsllc on Twitter.
I’m at Winter Fantasy in arctic Ft. Wayne, IN, so here are some stupid Caturday images that seem appropriate.
That’s a lot of dice. That little guy must be playing a rogue.
I love that this DC (Dungeon Cat. Get it?) is preparing to pull out an old white dragon on this party. I’m not sure if that thing will fit in that room.
I was scheduled to run three sessions of 1st Edition Dungeons & Dragons. Each session would be a different leg of White Plume Mountain. Not a single table went off. I sold only one ticket for the third session, and needless to say, that guy decided to find his way onto another table. I’ll be running the adventure in the van on the way home, however, so I’ll get my fix.
I know. WotC made a huge announcement. Everyone’s talking about it. I want to as well, and more than one person (three) directly asked me to comment on it. However, I’m really busy putting my house back together after contractors messed with it, and preparing for Winter Fantasy and Winter Vantasy. I need to prepare a DDAL adventure I’ll be running in the van, and finish my prep for 1st Edition White Plume Mountain, which, if anyone buys a ticket, I’ll be running. So, for now, as I warned some of you, I’m just doing a silly Caturday post. As I’m a busy cat at the moment, here’s another busy cat.
I’m still on break from OGL talk. I have a doozy of a post that is scheduled for Tuesday. (I keep rescheduling it because the landscape changes on a daily basis, requiring edits.) For now, it’s Caturday, so here’s something goofy.
Today is the one-year anniversary of closing on my house. While I didn’t move in until the 11th, I became a homeowner on this day. After settling in for a year, I wanted to get cat, but a pipe burst on Christmas Day and flooded the place. I’m going through the long, arduous process of getting it straightened out, so the cat will have to wait. Despite these recent troubles. I really love this house and the neighborhood. It suits me perfectly.
I’m headed to Vegas on Monday. This will be my first time staying at Mandalay Bay. It’s my preferred gambling spot, but for the past decade or so, I’ve stayed at either the Luxor or the Excalibur. I’ve always enjoyed a ton of success at the Excalibur tables, so I’ll probably make a stop there as well.
Since Columbus Day weekend of this year, I’ve visited a local casino four times to practice my blackjack and have won (after tips, gas, etc.) $3,375. This means that my entire trip has already been financed by gambling winnings even if I lose $2,000 or so (which I won’t; I expect more of the same success). So, for only the second time in my life, I decided to upgrade to first class (for my return trip).
Why? First, it cost only $399 to upgrade, keeping me well within “the trip is already paid for” budget. (I probably paid too much for my coach ticket, so most of the additional expense has already been paid.) Second, the plane is a #Boeing 777-200. This means that first class has “lie flat” seating. This is important b/c my plane leaves at 11:45 pm PT and lands at 7 am ET. Sleeping on a plane will never have been so easy for me. Perfection will be if there’s a socket to plug in my C-PAP. If not, that’s as much the other passengers’ problem as it is my own. 🙂
