Piggy
Martin has recently become attached to a specific toy - a stuffed pig. We've been noticing a growing attachment and had been looking for a "backup" Piggy, but it seems it was a seasonal item and the store no longer carries it.

Last night at bedtime we couldn't find Piggy. Martin NEEDS Piggy to sleep, apparently, and would not be dissuaded with previous bedtime favorites such as TowTruck. It took about 45 minutes of both of us searching to find Piggy, and another 30 minutes to calm Martin back down after the terror of No Piggy At Bedtime.

Ash has just ordered some replacement stuffed pigs online. My sister got three "backup" Owlys after a similar experience with my nephew.

Books
At my parents' mid-summer party, Ash and I were approached by a friend of the family.

C: You guys are into gaming, right? Like tabletop games? D&D?
Ash: Yeah.
C: Well, my dad was really into them, and I've got some of his old books I'm looking to get rid of. You can look through them and keep what you want, and sell or whatever the rest.
Ash: Okay, we can take them off your hands.

Sick baby
Martin probably has Hand Foot And Mouth. A high fever (104 F) that has since passed. Now a rash that started on the hands and feet and is working its way in, rather than say Chickpox rash that starts on the torso and works its way out. Generally cranky, but activity level still high, because nothing stops Mr GoGoGo.

Shadow Accord - May
Edith to Sofia, Sunday morning: "I'm sure it's not going to last as soon as I go check on Sheppard in a few minutes and determine he's fine, but... ENFANT REGENT!" She throws her hands up in the air in triumph.


Enfant Regent!Collapse )

NPCing and STing
I hated full-time NPCing and won't be doing that again. I played 5 roles the entire weekend, average time out = 1 hour. So 5 hours of play over the whole weekend, 2-4 hours of helping brief NPCs. Rest of the time sitting on my bum and occasionally asking if there was something I or other NPCs could be doing. *frownyface*

Four STs, five full time NPCs, plus drop-ins and pre-arrangeds? Just not enough parts to go around. And even though I'd requested a bed so I could maintain a semi-normal sleep pattern, they didn't save me one, so I couldn't even get to sleep (on the floor of the common room) until everyone else went to bed. Apparently when I mentioned this, one of the guys took pity on me and cleared off his bed, but failed to tell me before 4am. Have I mentioned the communication issues with this bunch?

Actually STing was okay. I'd prepared written briefings for both my plots, which I think was a good idea as I know I tend to forget details when under pressure and/or sleep deprived. The people who read the briefings were impressed by them, saying they were good clear summaries of the plot and characters. I also briefed an I-know-nothing-about-Wraith player on what a drone is and how to play one. She came back with a big grin on her face, "I got forged!" so I think that went okay too.

The new Head ST was recruiting pretty hard, saying they've not run a lot of human-based whole-town-accessible history-based plots in the last few years because they don't have anyone who especially likes researching / writing / running those plots, and yet that's almost entirely what I submitted.

Overall, I'm still on the fence. There are two slots opening up on the ST team after next game, so I have a little while to think it over. But after that there probably won't be another opening for about a year.

Went to the ST meeting today. Everyone else was late due to traffic and/or forgetting to move their clocks forward, so I had a nice chat with the host. When everyone else arrived we ran through the "big plot" for the weekend, setting everything out on a timeline, arranging who was available to play what part when, and ironing out some details. Then we added in the smaller plots, including my two.

Overall, feeling more confident.
