Okay – it’s a bit of a misdirection because my first day back at the library was on Friday, but today was the first real week back after the festive break, and some new writing jobs came in as well. As a result my nose feels well and truly back to the grindstone. We also had our first game session of the new year this evening, which went really, really well. I’m expecting to write that up properly over the next day or so as usual, fitting it around everything else.
Suffice to say that the merry adventurers survived the tiger that came to tea, and began their investigations into the giant ruins, looking for the Emerald Claw troops who seem to have disappeared into its depths. They have come away with a far greater appreciation of the size of the place, I think, and a reasonable compromise between traditional dungeon crawling and cautious delving seems to be the order of the day.
In other news, Lady M started her new job today – bit of a shame she had a sub-migraine headache to go with it. I’ve settled her in the dark in the other room and tried not to make too much noise while we gamed. I have to say it was fantastic to have her home at a decent time. The new job has cut her commute pretty much in half, so we can actually contemplate having evenings together on a regular basis again – yay!
