I was supposed to get out at 4pm dammit. I should'nt even have been at work, I worked Christmas and Thanksgiving. Okay maybe I am just a whiner. We'll luckily, I was no longer expected in Cincinnati at 10pm, Friday but Toledo "sometime," Saturday. Getting off of shift at 6:30pm last Friday was just fine.
Showing up at the start of festivities by jumping into Peryton's video ICONS game "Deathwing" right on time. I finally got to play my Demon/Creeper rip-off, err homage Goblin. While playing in the wife's ICONS campaign, I am still working out the basic conventions of the systems, so I am trying more than the usual amount of characters per campaign-- So far I am at four (three and a half really). To toot my own, I think I orchestrated a pretty good story-arc with the Professor Hemm/Goblin portrayal here.
As usual, The Boy put my adventure outline for "The Edge of the Universe"
to the test of how to deal with uncooperative role-players, while
everyone else, including the new guy, showed there their skill at
table-top role-playing. I suspect that JerryTel hates my Wobble games, but as a good friend he still sat through the session. Peryton was doing the most awesome "trans-Atlantic" accent ever. Micky_Akron showed his deeper role-player by showing that a Greaser could become a trans-dimensional traveler by applying motor maintenance to the larger universe around himself.
A little after midnight, it was determined that the Tele-Con palace was not good enough for me and my posse for chillings. We ended up at a hotel just on the other side of the interstate of the Cinema Casino of Toledo. I hate to admit it, but by 2am I was sleeping hard while my phone buzzed with about 14 text msgs. At 4am I answered my niece, born just after Elvismas on my 16th birthday (I was there), and let the others wait.
In the morning, I slept in as long as I could, but there was snow. Peryton was mildly outraged, but I had to remind her, that "Snow loves me."
