Haven't done a day shift in a few months now. Was able to do it on only about five hours of sleep. Just couldn't seem to get my mind to wind down. Anyway one more to go then I don't have to worry about them for awhile.
aota: (Rick & Morty)
Surprised at how much I like Rick and Morty 3rd season episode the Cartoon Network streamed for April 1st. Actually maybe not. I am a sucker for alternate universe stories. This shows has an infinite amount of them. Will have to see the first the second seasons to see what I missed.

Duh!

I has the dumb today.

I'm having one of those days when every choice I make is the wrong one. They are also really simple choices.

Glad I have tomorrow off.

April Fools

I like April Fools day. Not because I like to prank people, I just like seeing through other peoples pranks. The internet always has some good ones. Like this one from SJ Games.



Think Geek also has some fun things every year. Like the bicycle horn of Gondor.

Decided not to apply for the Mangers position at Gardner. I don't think it would have been a good fit for me anyway and from what I hear around work lots of people applied for it.

Was looking through the old Roleplayers and Pyramids that SJ Games has added to their products recently. I actually have all these in the print versions but I got them with some MIB points. Wow lots of nostalgia. It was different time for GURPS and the game business back in the Mid 80's through the 90's. Interesting to see some of the projects that never happened like GURPS Talislanta or GURPS Alvin the Maker. Both never written.

Not sure

Not sure if I should try for a promotion to a job I fairly sure I won't like or wait and see if any of the other promotions I put it for pan out. Decisions, decisions...
aota: (work)
Working today busier than yesterday but still usual slow Sunday. TV next to me has been on BBC America all day doing a James Bond marathon. They have been doing the Sean Connery ones. Funny seeing them reminds me where all the spy movie cliches came from.

Moods

Got my Futurama mood theme ported to Dreamwidth. It took about an hour and a half. It was pretty much the last thing I wanted to get from the LJ. Now I feel much more comfortable on DW. Strange what little things can bother a person.

I'm the gamemaster again. We are currently doing GURPS Technomancer using the 4th edition rules. Taking place in the late 90's so I don't have to update the background.

Our first adventure was cleaning out a zombie infestation in the caves storage and business district. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SubTropolis. Since I'm doing this in the local KC area I thought this would be a fun place to run an adventure.
During the second adventure I contacted several of the characters with dreams from this giant slug baby thing I created. Turns out it wasn't an evil creature but some mutant w experiment that escaped and the evil corporation was looking for it. They ended up rescuing it and now it is safe at a religious orphanage. One of the characters is a priest.
The third adventure was an adaption of the Savage Worlds one sheet adventure "Rednecromancer". Basically a old folk trailer court filled with preserved geriatric zombies under the control of the park manager. I had to tweak is some to fit the Technomancer back ground but not a lot. I even used it to introduce a possible big bad for the game.
The fourth adventure took place on St. Patrick's day. So I ran a green themed adventure. I called this one Greenhouse of Doom. I used several nasty plant creatures from a couple of GURPS books. Had it take place in an experimental magical plant department on the KU campus. I think it turned out pretty well. I even got several characters to do a little more than they usually do during games.

Reading

aota: (I love books)
Currently listen/re-reading A Matter for Men by David Gerrold. Read this when I was in the Air Force so this is pretty much a review for me and I like listening to books I have already read since I can hear how names and places should be pronounced. Funny early in the book we are introduced to Dr. Obama I know I pronounced this wrong back when I first read it in 1989.

I'm also reading Exiled (Clan of the Claw, #1). This is a shared world that the dinosaur killer asteroid didn't hit the earth and dinosaurs continued to evolve along with an intelligent cat like humanoid race. It's basically cat-folk versus dino-folk. First two stories have been fun.

I think I have Dreamwidth set up the way I want it now. So I'm going to start blogging a little more often. It will be my usual format of game related stuff and personal thoughts. I'll have it auto post to LJ so I can reply to either.

Spent a lot of today sleeping since I was all night playing my new game Civilization VI. After getting up around 6pm Maria and I went out to Zio's and had a nice dinner. Then we watched some TV. A relaxing day.

After getting Google fiber and enjoying all the bandwidth.

Lots of things have happened. Diabetes now is being treated with insulin shots before food intake, pills weren't doing it. Also had to change my diet a lot. Hopefully things will loosen up after I loose some more weight.

Gaming: We have switched GMs and I'm playing in a GURPS Supers game. I'm having a pretty good time.
aota: (IOU)
Ran my second GURPS IOU adventure today. I called it the War of the Vending Machines. Fun adventure I thought it up while reading some adventure ideas that people online had for IOU. Someone said "You could always have the vending machines attack." So I did. It actually has some more plot than that, but it was what I started with. Everyone had fun and I lost my voice a little.

Snow

Got our first snow today. Lots of ice first and then a little bit of snow. Still looked pretty.

Ran my first GURPS 4th edition game and the first RPG I've ran since 2001 yesterday. I had a good time and the players seemed to enjoy themselves too. I ran my GURPS IOU Meep hunt event that I've ran a few times many years ago at Dragoncon. I converted it to 4th edition and it turned out rather well. To the point I need to come up with some other adventures since they want to play these characters again.
Getting cold outside and we are under a winter weather warning. Will find out tomorrow if we get any snow.

New hobby

Figured since I was going to be up all night again I would start my new hobby. It's painting miniatures for RPG games. I'm doing this by using the Reaper Bones learn to paint kit. The instructions and pictures are very helpful. I'm doing simple things right now just a couple of skeletons to learn the techniques. It's really not has hard as I always thought it was and I find it very relaxing. I'll post pictures when I get some finished.
