Weekend in review

Not that memorable of a weekend, kind of formulaic. D&D Friday night was fun. I think my character's core build feature (the ability to cast a massive, augmented, and "free action" Turn Undead/Demons/elementals/chromatic dragons/Immortals every time the GM rolls a 20) is...maybe a little powerful. It's taken me about six feats and a Paragon Path to get there, but even so, it's a bit game-breaking in certain encounters. Utterly useless in others. But that "situationally godlike, otherwise useless" thing is kind of moderating? I don't know, will discuss with group. We had an encounter with elementals at the top of a mesa (blew most of them off the mountain with two attacks) and a massive swarm of obsidian-shard whirlwind minions (killed most of them with one attack).

Saturday, kind of slow--woke up early, got some church work done, grabbed lunch with Whines, plotted for D&D, ran game. There might have been a few thrift stores there--I found something delightfully nasty, a candle in a champaign glass that looks like it was made to resemble a rice pudding parfait, with little dried fruits floating at the top. Yech!

D&D fun, though I got a little grumpy at the end. Cranberry's character bribed a manticore with a box of expensive gourmet chocolates (each chocolate was priced at about six month's commoner's wages...) and I think the "cliff-climb over howling portal to heck" skill challenge was actually pretty tense. At the end, I'd set up a life-threatening encounter with a timer to the next encounter, and the PCs ran to escape it, which makes perfect sense, but it did throw a lot of plot elements out the window, so I need to figure out how to repair that.

Sunday--mostly unscheduled. Church stuff in le morning, so-so lunch at the new "La Tapateria" restaurant, just to see what it was like. It was so-so. Ran down south to get all the "Revolutionary Girl Utena" series for Josef, and found a pretty new White Wolf book I'd been wanting :)

Home, made a ghost pepper curry to share with Whines, Maru, Bauson, and Ms Quinn [edit: and Folfers, too! Sorry, Crystal :)], and wrapped up the day with the 1950s Little Shop of Horror (rifftrax), and some random video clippage.

Not a bad weekend, but one that had enough elements cribbed from other weekends that I'm having a hard time remembering it even now.

    Whoof. I've taken a few beatings over the last few days over this. My office is moving across town, which spells an end for my nice little commute…

    Okay, so it's Dogai's birthday tonight. Bauson said that D really liked "biscoff" cookies, which are buttery little things with a touch of spice, and…
