Although lack of sleep is the prominent issue at the moment, this weekend was a lot of fun.
Friday night was me and Ken and Edna staying up late to clean the house so that we could have guests over. We had some music playing, and everyone worked together. We got a whole lot accomplished, and were rather proud of ourselves. I got to bed at 4 A.M.
Waking up at 10 A.M. (which, for me, six hours is not good for sleep ), I headed out to New Jersey to pick up my two youngest brothers, who were hanging out with me for the day. Back in Pennsylvania, we gamed for a while until it was time for the Ravens-Titans game. We broke out all the snacks, and our friends showed up. Jacob and Johanna came, and so did Edwin, along with a friend of his who I thought was pretty awesome and got on well with everyone there.

So, my roommates, their cousins, and I started a beginner’s module to the new Fourth Edition of Dungeon’s and Dragons. Now, before we played, I was pretty sure that I was going to hate the new ruleset. I had been DMing before this, and I was pretty in depth on the rules of the previous version. My friends and I had played it for years… since high school, really. There was no way I was gonna like these new rules.
But they needed an extra body, and since it was the beginner module, it came with a starter set of pre-setup characters. That, and I did not have to DM, since Ken was already doing it. So I figured, what the hey, I’ll give it a shot.
…There will be those hardcores who will have contempt for me after this statement: but I believe the rules here are a MUCH more accessible set of rules. I avoid using “watered down,” although some hardcores may use, as there is plenty of complication, but fortunately, it is mostly during battle, where you want lots of options and strategy!

I’m flying on a small aircraft, one of those small luxury jetliners with only like 6 seats in the main cabin. It is sunny outside, and I’m looking out the window with a drink in my hand. Blank is the one flying the craft. My mother is sitting next to me, excited that we’re going to…whereever it was we were going.
Suddenly, Blank goes, “Watch this!” and immediately pulls up, looping the plane upside down. I feel the immense force pushing me into my seat. My eyes are closed, so I don’t see anything, but I call out: “My mother can’t handle this in her condition!” Everything fades to darkness.
