#2967: How to lose five hours

Play D&D with your niece.

I finally got to try out my "Dungeon Deck" accessories that I bought in 2003. It inserted a nice 6-encounter dungeon in the middle of our session and led to my niece's character getting killed by a doppelganger.

Well, no one said it would be easy.

...assuming she comes out here for Christmas, we ought to be able to have some fun with the next adventure in line.

BTW, when giving a sap to a fighter who has never used one, it's a good idea to tell her how to use it. Though getting a critical hit with a thrown sap will work, it's not wise to count on that happening.

And I'd bet that the guy's bodyguard is going to be fired. The mark gets knocked cold by a thrown sap, and the bodyguard just kept on walking as if nothing had happened. He got almost thirty feet away before he realized something had happened.

Sure, that's fine. Just tell the politicians that they are no longer accountable for their actions in any way whatsoever and the entire country will enter a new age of prosperity and enlightenment! Russia after the Bolsheviks, like China after the Cultural Revolution, like Cambodia under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, like Germany under Hitler. Right?

In a sane world, this woman would no longer be able to serve as governor anywhere, because 1) she'd be laughed, ridiculed, and scorned right out of her current office; and 2) would never get more than a handful of votes in any election ever again.

Ah, it's after midnight, and I've got to get to bed soon.

    Had to go to far off-site (soon to be main site) today, so I was able to see my new office. They've already got a nameplate outside it! How long has…

    Probably the last thunderstorm of the year, hard rain. Weather site says "2 to 3 inches of rain"--for the day, I think--and I'm not inclined to doubt…

  • #7869: Here comes the rain (again)

    Up a bit after sunrise, did the pre-blog surf and found nothing I really wanted to comment about; but in the meantime the light coming in from…
