Macbeth the Usurper

D&D Game

The D&D game went very well yesterday. The players were presented with a crime scene. They proceeded to play "D&D CSI". I dare say, everyone had fun.

In short, a murder leads them to a group of evil do-ers being murdered by a priest of Tharizdun. They have 19 days to save the universe (worst case scenario).

The most fun in the game was the ghost. She wound up communicating with the party via pantomime. Once I got into her character, it was amazing what I could communicate via gesture.

Meanwhile, I've been trying to get games to run via Wine. Anarchy Online? No-go. Rappelz? No-go. I may try Guild Wars as that seems to have lots and lots of support. My budget? Free to cheap, preferably free.

This morning was a milestone. Joy woke up and did not want to eat something right away. Shen she did it, it was solid food.


My little baby isn't a baby anymore.

Joy has begun pointing. There's a term called declarative speech that kids do. A single word includes the actions associated wih that word. When Joy point, it is a declarative action. Pointing means, "I want to see/touch/eat that."

CD Order

Ordered a few CD's from Amazon. The shipping cost was higher than the CD cost. Yes, I was bottom feeding. Mostly I bought 80's "best of" disks. You can get CD's far cheaper than $1 a track if you use snailnet.
