So recently I lost my D20 & it appears that his downward spiral continues.
We may be past the time for intervention!
Of course, this spot ended up coasting us US$30 for the day! I am seriously considering finding a cheaper way to attend next con!
This image needs to be on the next Gamex t-shirt–is is definitely my mantra for con:
Jack and I scored tons of Dum-Dums & a great hand fan during registration–which was $30 bucks for the day–EACH! we definitely need to do something about this–$90 to park and attend is just way to much for a day at Con & we still have not purchased nachos, pizza, tube of dice, or any of the other required tools
I made a Slaver with Trident & Net–totally awesome!
Jack totally crushed me with his Bunny with Spear
Then we signed up for games–a little late night Gurps
A great game of Space Hulk–which is not Hulk on a Space ship, as we had hoped
Then some Nuke War in the lobby with Luis
Our GURPs game was on Star Trek Voyager:
We battled some strange creatures in a mostly non combat type of way which is so popular in GURPS
Our GMs did accidently write on his mat with a wet erase marker, which was tragic.

After listening to a Tome Show Round Table episode on Fantasy Grounds, I finally decided to install it and give it a go.
The down-loader, FGWebInstall.exe was easy to find & ran very smoothly–totally impressed with this & if the ‘patch system’ which sends updates to content works this well without Steam I will be very impressed.
The license is for 4E content & I am still not sure what all of my options are at this time.
At which point I gave up & decided i needed to spend more time on the forums & the discussion rooms & maybe find a specialist that will walk me through some of this.
James Introcaso sits down with Doug Davidson of SmiteWorks, makers of Fantasy Grounds, and Greg Tito of Wizards of the Coast, makers of Dungeons and Dragons. They discuss the companies’ partnership to bring Dungeons and Dragons products to Fantasy Grounds. Then we get a few teases from Greg about the upcoming Rage of Demons storyline! This podcast was recorded on May 7, 2014.
This is the podcast that actually got me to install Fantasy Grounds and start working through setup, license purchase, and the related tasks that go with preparing to run and play in Virtual Table Top Games.
The opening question–“what is your favorite magic item” is awesome & leads to some wonderful conversation around rings of invisibility, bags of holding, & the Hand of Vecna
I am still using the tea pot that I got from Tevana–mostly because I love how well you can reheat and/or brew a second pot without making a giant mess or loosing to much flavor.
The tea looked solid & brewed up nicely
Sean was running late and since we had to get Kate to dance Cody & I moved the poster out onto the patio
It was a fun afternoon.
It looks like Friday has not posted a video in a while, I really hope that she is not done with that video series–I really enjoy it!
