Tired DM Is Tired

In which I’m going to talk about our D&D session of two weeks ago, which I’ve been putting off. I’m going to be fairly brief about it, and here’s the thing with that: while everybody else was pretty awake for the proceedings, I was exhausted. 2 liter of Coca-Cola? No help. I was so tired I was zoning out mid-combat round and mid-sentence a couple times, and I’m pretty sure I fell asleep at least once. All of which is to say that there are going to be some fairly significant gaps in the narrative here, because I had no idea what was going on.

Express Yourself

So, I’m getting reminded that I have a duty to recap last weekend’s D&D session. And we’ll get to that in due course. For the moment, however, I’m going to be doing a bit more YouTube pimping as illustration of a point. See, when I’m working on stuff, I, like many other people, like to listen to music. Where I break with a lot of people is that I generally listen to the same song or two over and over and over again. Helps me concentrate. The problem? I don’t always get to have an active choice in what those songs are. My brain gets a vote too, and it’s not always entirely consistent about things:

So, perhaps you’ve heard NWA’s Straight Outta Compton. Since most of you have even less appreciation for gangsta rap than I do (which isn’t high), maybe you haven’t. The contrast to this is pretty hilarious, though:

Readers of the blog for the past several years will know that this computer has had significantly more issues and upgrade stories than not, never mind random issues and problems, which Windows 7 only sort of fixed.

So, drow have always been one of the more interesting D&D races. Some cool abilities, fun with spiders, kinky evil sex, evil rituals, they’re good villains if you need a villain, or good inspiration if you’re running a particular sort of (rather creepy, really) BDSM establishment. They also have cool houses, being big glowing stalactites and stalagmites with crazy designs, so drow are probably also good inspiration if you want that really unique abode, or maybe just want to throw a badass rave.
