Well, the never-ending story... trials and tribulations of the GM...

Tests still haven't come back (or the doctors haven't informed us if they have) identifying the particular cancer. But the hospital sent her to Hope Hospice... to die, really. Only she started getting better. Apparently part of her condition was due to too much calcium in her blood. Now that that's been treated, she's back to 'normal', as much as she has been since last September. The last six months of frequent hospital visits and recovery rehab stays has left her weak and tired, but she's mentally alert most of the time now.

Good news for her, bad news for Hospice, as they now perceive her as not dying fast enough! The prognosis for multiple myalomas was 4-7 months before it kills her. Not what Hospice wants to hear, so they are kicking her out tomorrow. So it's back to rehab until she gets worse.


Been trying to get to this game for a few days now, but something keeps interfering with my efforts... sleep, mostly!

Sleep is a good reason.
Good to hear she is getting better or has been.

Hope everyone who celebrates Easter in one way or another (even if just an excuse to each your body weight in chocolate) enjoyed themselves over the weekend and rest of the time.

I'm ready to fight and lose some of the chocolate weight (I know it wont work but thinking of exercise can help cant it lol)

Maybe they are. Everyone logged in to the board today, but nobody posted.


I probably need to rethink what I was doing with this game and where it is going.

Sorry about the delay everyone.  Been dealing with some family issues, which has limited my free time for the moment.  Still, I will try to keep up as best I can.

Only takes 30 secs to comment when log in, assuming taking the time.

Danyka, I hope things get sorted for you soon.

Fathers Day (UK)
Hope all are ok and those who are able, are celebrating fathers day in their own way, even if only to remembering those who have passed.

My Father's Day (US) weekend camp out was amazeballs to the extreme.

Glad to hear it, Ioelenna.


I never remember what games I've mentioned this in, but since my gallbladder surgery Feb 1st, I have been really low on energy. How that affects my games is that I tire out easily, and then I can't think straight. Games and/or responses that require creative thinking are the ones that suffer first, as I stare at a post trying to think what to reply, and nothing comes.

So, I'm still around... just struggling to keep up with some of my games, like this one.

We appreciate all the work you put into this game. Are you lacking vitamins or is it the pills you've been taking? I've had the effect from both these things. Have a word with doc, shouldn't still be this bad. Heal well.

It could be either or both of those things, though I'm getting an inkling that my circadian rhythm got skewed somewhere along the line.

In any case, and I suggest this with all GMs (unless they complain), KEEP POSTING. Every and any post could be the nudge that sparks a creative flash. Yeah, I know it's hard when you are waiting on a GM's input or answer, but a post that has introspection (such as the character wondering what they'll find--might trigger inspiration in the GM) or conversation with another PC all work to make the game 'flow' better... and more quickly.

Just saying.

Okay Iolenna'a point is her cloak is on. But that makes her more conspicuous in a desert environment. Trust me I was born in the great state of the 5 C's, Arizona.

I suppose it depends on the people of the city we rescued some of the crew from as these guards had cloaks, maybe only because it was night and cooler than they are used to.

I'm away camping this weekend from tomorrow afternoon but will post when I get a chance.
I'll keep fingers crossed that we are at the ship and getting it free by Sunday evening on my return.

I appear to be infectinated with a cold and bright screens are causing issue.  Will try to post though.

Still alive!

As bad as Hurricane Irma was, it wasn't all that bad. Almost no building damage has been reported, not even broken windows, but signs and lots and lots of trees have been uprooted.

15 million people without power. It's starting to come back online now, but probably won't have it at the house for another 2-3 days. Posting from a friend's workplace, which never actually lost power because it was part of the evacuation route.

All we had were a few roof leaks, and the backyard fence got blown down.

Hurricane Irma's aftermath...
*hug the GM*  Yay!  Welcome back.  Glad to know that you are physically (and mentally) okay!  Take care of yourself (and those around you).  Come back to us when you can (somehow I think that posting regularly from your friend's work is not really sustainable, long term).

Hope that you get power back soon. And a new fence and roof repair.  And fresh water.  And some semblance of normalcy.

Oh, and I will try to get an IC post up as soon as I can ... see what we do as part of the boarding action...

As Danyka said, glad you are ok and things are not as bad as could have been with the house.
