Ever get the feeling that Handy really hates magic items?

If someone asks you, "do you want to posses the 9 foot gorilla?", you say hell yeah!
That's like D&D 101, right?

Rooms booked and badges purchased for Gary Con.
So far I think we have 5 or 6 coming, with a few more on the fence.

We did explore a crashed flying saucer in the swamp but there were no living dead, just some rabid frogs worshiping the alien pilot.

Having a fantastic time playing Zombicide Black Plague with my kids. Really captures the feel of trying to survive a zombie hoard over running a medieval town. Comes with a bunch of different scenarios. So far we have run the introduction scenario 4 times. We won twice and lost twice.

For Father's day my wife backed the Massive Darkness Kickstarter, from the same company. Really looking forward to this one. Here's the link.

Handy sandbagged me. Thursday, Friday and Saturday he wouldn't let me go to sleep before 5 am. I was exhausted Sunday night. I'm on to him for next year.

First thing I did at Gary Con was grab one of these because I had a feeling they were going to sell out.
Beautiful shirt, you will not be disappointed.

What a great time. Didn't play in one bad game the whole con.

Wednesday
Thanks to Chainsaw for hooking us up on Wednesday night. Felt a little bad for him trying to keep us drunk dumb-asses on track. Only our group finds a 300' shaft, blasting radioactive steam, and decides this is probably the best way to enter a dungeon. Great adventure, wish we could've explored more. 

Thursday
Played in a Barbarians of Lemuria game. Nothing says a good time like strangling a tyrannosaurus with your bare hands or killing snake-men with a wine skin.

Jeff's Mystery at Port Greely adventure was just perfection. Handy was bummed that he couldn't run it for us, being that I had already played it, so I decided I'm going to DM it for the group when it comes out. Will be my first time DMing. Gizmo said it best, "Also, the printouts of the art that Ghul had were fucking amazing."

Friday

Played in a Cyberpunk game. The franchises have taken over the world and we had to deliver McDonald's secret zombie sauce. Were attacked by every fast food franchise you can think of. Watching a cyborg Ronald McDonald whiff an atomic elbow attack was hilarious. I blew my own head off with a rocket launcher in the first 5 minutes. GM was gracious enough to give me a mulligan. I then proceeded to roll critical failures the entire game. Even after a picked up 2 new sets of dice during a smoke break. 

The Highlight of my Friday was playing in Morgan's Snakemen on a Plain game. 9th level beserkers are the s***. Had a moment of panic when our first encounter was 13 giant crabs, their mother and a crab man. I was thinking "Game over man, game over." Then I realized we're all 9th level. Handy wasn't happy that I had a +1 mace. My only magic item. He felt Morgan was spoiling us. We eventually did make it to and defeated the final boss monster. I was waiting all game to say " I'M TIED OF ALL THESE MOTHER****ING SNAKES ON A PLANE". Unfortunately I was paralyze

Just got back to my computer. I see that your games are sold out. Ah well, I'll probably take handy up on his offer for your Friday night game.

Highlights:
- Gary Con, my very first Con. Had a blast meeting everyone and letting them know what a tyrant Handy is. I mean +0 swords, come on.
- Sticks and Stones Con. My second Con.
- Playing D&D and board games with my 8 and 5 year old sons. My 8 year old is becoming a fierce board gamer. Like Rhialto's son said, "
good father-son quality time".
- Handy unleashing his twisted/fabulous imagination in our regular game. What a blast, we're lucky to have him as a DM.
- Only getting in 19 home games this year. Guess this can be put in the "First World Problems" category.
- visiting family in Texas and Virginia
- finally joining that kick boxing gym I've been meaning to join for the last 5 years.
Lowlights:
- Not reading nearly enough, will rectify this in 2016
- Over hearing my 5 year old's friend asking if I was his grandfather. Damn this l
uxurious gray beard.
- Some long time gaming buddies moving to California

I just ordered a copy of this. I'll be spending the next 2 months getting ready for GaryCon.
I guess I should also bone up on some Latin phrases to really set the mood.

It was good meeting you Rhialto. We still have the "take one for the team" bill to settle up.
I had a great time playing in Jeff's and DMPrata's games.
Wish we had more time to finish Anthrpophagi of Xamboola, it was starting to really get good.

I just received a conformation e-mail for my badge.
Looks legit so far.
