Gaming and such

So last night was mousebane's playtest for his 7th Sea game for Unicon. It was really good! Only a few minor adjustments to flow, really, were needed, and the GM in question has taken that on board. You should all go to Unicon and play his game.

One of the interesting player dynamics was, however, between two people who may have only met in passing before - the irrepressible Lon and bishi_wannabe's friend Damien. I've played in multiple games with either of them in the past, and know that they are both rather grand, but I had never seen them in action as a pair...

... And like chocolate and peanut butter, their powers combined made a taste sensation!

Partly due to the characters they were playing were a bit of a team, but mostly due to their ability to bounce ideas off eachother really well, it was truly something magnificent (and often hilarious) to behold.

I am left wanting to recruit Damien into my D&D game, if only to see him and Lon do the role-playing thing together more often. This could mean six players, and as a GM who is used to dealing with only two players at a time could prove... difficult. But the fun that could come out of it may outweigh my feeble objections.

I also bought punkin pie in a can today. I expect I shall be baking pumpkin pie very soon. Mmmm - pumpkin pie....

Mind if I email this post to Damian?

If you like. I mean, I'm still a bit up in the air about it, and I'd like to ask all of my DnD players first, but I suppose it can't hurt to sound Damien out on the idea of maybe possibly joining the game...

Did I cover my bases enough?

Unsurprisingly, I have no opposition to Damian joining the DnD game.

Just as long as you don't try to convince him to play one aof Ariss' sisters ...

That's what i get for opening my mouth, isn't it? :)

Thankjfully I was mostly kidding. I think you'd have to be the most persuasive person in the world, having the most persuasive day of your life to get him to play one of those characters.

Actually, if he does join I'll probably poke him with the cleric stick. After all, it's the only major slot not covered by the rest of the party.

Bashy cleric would be good - I could use some help in the meat-shield domain.

Response: Said he'd be overjoyed to play D&D and muttered something about getting onto LJ.

Yes after lurking around here for the last couple of weeks I've finally signed up.

There's half a cleric... or there will be after October...

I tend to think of you as more of a half ranger. :)

Canned pie. The mind reels - I think I must've been hit by an airborne can.

Was there pie in the can?

Yep - it imprinted it's slogan on my brain: "Want pie? CAN DO!"

On a side note, comedy acts might be a little more dangerous if you can get banana/custard cream pie in a can. >.

Out of curiosity, do you like pie, pumpkin or otherwise?
delwyn

It all depends on the pie filling, so I can't say I'm a blanket pie lover (blankets don't make good pies you see). Not particularly keen on pumpkin, and I can't recall if I've tried pumpkin pie at a Thanksgiving or not (being the only place I'm likely to have been offered the opportunity to sample)

What can I say? I'm a house-wife. All I'm goos for is cooking and cleaning.

Well, I wouldn't say that it's *all* you're good for, but I think it's certainly something you're good at.

Those nachos the other week ... Mmmmmmmmm.....
