Gaming Night Session 2
In which I play Criket the noisy halflingsorcerer. Tonight was a lot more fun than the session two weeks ago. I suppose as I go along 4th edition combat rules and actions will get easier to understand and translate. I am looking forward to making up my blackguard paladin though. I have to flesh out her background a bit more but it should be easily to do once I get all of her stats and powers down. It will be more fun to play an orginal character that I have created than a pre generated character that someone else has created. But I won’t get to play her until the DM approves her. So I have to do some reading and choose powers,feats,skills,encounter powers,at will powers,etc. It will take some doing but will be more fun in the fun. The group seemed to relax a little bit more around us as the newbies to the group and as time goes on and we go more regularly that should be the case. They are still more combat oriented than I like but I ammore of a “storyteller” than a “hack and slash” DM myself. We will see how it all plays out. We are thinking of going to another group as well and even starting up a 2nd edition DND game on Saturdays from five pm. to nine pm. We will have to seee if we get some more players.
And that’s not counting Camp Nano that is starting again in four days. I still have to come up with some good ideas for that as well. I am going to try to be in that this month coming up as well. Still waiting to hear back on some job apps as well. So another full and busy week from today Thursday June 27th onward. Things have passed so quickly today that I forgot to even wish my MoM a happy birthday yesterday. She would have been 62 if she was still alive. Love you Mom. Hope you are doing well wherever you are.
With that said signing off for now gentle Readers.

Sex Men and Reality
I just read a blog post on Dare to take the Plunge about sexy men and how all girls are secretly attracted to them. Now I have to say that my personal tastes run a little counter to this. In my younger years I liked cowboys. In my middle twenties Rutger Hauer and Sean Connery made me really want them. If you have not seen Ladyhawke go out right now and add it to your dvd/blue ray collection at once. A really good, underrated fantasy movie with a lot of good stars. Michelle Pieffer, Mathew Broderick,John Wood,Leo Mckern, and of course Rutger Hauer as the haunted and love lorn Navarre does a fine performance. He is wonderful as the dark knight with a tragic past. Michelle plays his love intrest in the film and she is just perfect. Leo Mckern and Mathew Broderick play the comic relief parts of the movie and they do a well rounded and fun job. John Wood is sheer bliss as the evil bishop. I won’t reveal the ending here. Get the movie and watch it.
And now on to Sean Connery. He is just yummy. I don’t care what movie he does I will watch it. I have all of the Bond films on dvd save for Skyfall. He was a really smooth action star back in the sixties and was fun in First Knight as King Authur. I wasn’t as fond of League of Extrodinary Gentlemen but I saw it. He was fun in Entrapement as well. I like it when he plays afflicted,conflicted roles. I would literally listen to this man read the phone book I like him that much.
Although these two men play bad boy or mysterious roles they are two of the best at what they do. I highly recommend any and all of their movies.
And now onto reality. In real life I am married to a handsome,brown haired,blue eyed,6″ft. man. He is younger than i am. We found each other online. It was quite an experience getting together. He is funny,kind,choactic,sassy,creative, and a bit of a practical joker. He is the more optomistic of the two of us and generally has an upbeat and cheerful personality. As I don’t look at others for their body type or good looks I was amazed that he would want to be with someone like me.I am 5″5ft tall in real life, weigh 163,and am curved in all the right places. Smiles. I have green eyes and usually dark red hair. My natural color is medium brown which I personally hate and color all the time. I have been a blonde,a red head, and most recently totally black. Right now my hair is dark red with black tips. Kind of punk but I like it. It is worn in a short neckline cut at present. I am 41 and my Husband is 34. We met in 1999. You do the math if you want to. And we have been together ever since.
I prefer my men to have a sense of humor over good looks. As my sight has faded over the years until it was totally gone in 2007 I have always valued kindness and humor over good looks and a bad attitude. As I have grown older I have come to the conclusion that beauty fades and Fate pares us all down to our essential forms. I am no beauty paegent winner. But I am happy with who I am with. Personally I find that more appealing than all the “bad boys” ever created. How about you all? How do you like your men or women for that matter? I am simply dying to find out. Give me a shout out and let me know.

audio RPs,Fantasy,and Fun
Hello there Gentle Readers. I have not been posting for a few days as I have been RPing with the husband. Hours and hours of it trying to get down some fun things for you to listen to and enjoy. I got down a few “Quickie” RPs and some longer ones as well.
I will be getting a new digital recorder in a few days and we Jamie and I that is have decided that is the way to go. We will be getting more memory cards and labeling them with the dates and all relevant information e.g. year,what kinds of rps on the memory cards etc.
Also I have not forgotten that I said I would write up a transformation story. I am in the process of doing so and already have over 2500 words so far and it is still going. I am sorry for the delay where that is concerned. I will be at the “tf” scene soon enough. Smiles.
Also working on a “home brew” campaign as well. So lots of things in the works Readers. Please stay tuned. Lady Soket

By the Light of the Moon
Well I was looking through some of the Freshly Pressed writing prompts and came across the Metamorphase one. That one sounds like fun. So look for that one here sometime today.
“Transformations are fun. For me anyway.”
Hello loyal Readers. I am still working on coming up with some audio files for you all to listen to. Smiles. In other news: I am taking my husband to see the new Star Trek movie Enter Darkness tomorrow. We are both big Star Trek fans so watching it in 3-D IMAX will be lots of fun. He is hooked on the IMAX experience and so am I. And let’s face it why go and see a Star Trek movie in a regular theater when for a few dollars more you can see it in 3-D? Now of course I can’t see it at all at this stage but what the hell. Smiles. I go for the sound effects and the storyline. And my husband will explain what is going on if I get lost in the movie. He is getting rather good at that after all of these years. We have been together for almost 14 years. And yes, ladies, before you ask he can see quite well and can drive. Anyhow I just wanted to let you all know what we were up to tomorrow I will probably post a small review of it when we get back from watching it.

Character Deaths and DM Woes
Well I must say I am PISSED. I have just spent over six hours readying a DND game for one of my friends. He fell asleep on us the other night as we were rping. So we hung up the phone and continued on without him.
So early this morning I called him about 4 a.m. to catch him up on what he missed out on after he fell asleep.
Now my husband was playing WOW World of Warcraft for those of you that don’t know. It is an online multiplayer game. He wanted me to take our friend and catch him up on the week in game time that he had missed.
So I thought Ok, fine. No problem. Boy was I wrong. Now we have known this friend of ours for roughly eight years. He is twenty eight,lives at home,has never had a job, and does not have a high school diploma. He is trying to get on disablity so he can lay around the house and complain about all of his aches and pains. He claims to have irriatable Bowel Syndrome. But having listened to what he eats I am not suprised at all that his stomach hurts him. So back on topic.
I am attempting to catch him up on things that he missed. He basically gets taken to the Temple of Eternal Evil. There he is fed and allowed to sleep the night away after a drinking bout. So he wakes up the next morning and the High Priestess of the temple is there. She tells him to get up and he refuses her. He is naked so this is understandable. So she goes over and grabs him up by the scruff of his neck and manhandles him out the door. So he is kicking and struggling. He has no idea of who she is nor does he stop to ask. He just says,” I am not gonna let this bitch manhandle me.”
In response the HPp grabs his sac and squeezes. He does not even drop to his knees or otherwise act as if it phases him.
Now most guys in real life would have collapsed on the ground and laid there whimpering. But not him. He keeps struggling. So the High Priestess commands two followers to bring him along. He tries to trip the two guards. This does not work. All he would have to say is “I’m sorry” to the HP and she would have been nicer to him. Along the way he is insulting my husband and complaining that he left him all alone at the tavern he was working at the last session. I gave him multiple chances to go outside of the tavern and explore the city. He refused every time. So the HP takes him downstairs and ritually kills him for his insults to her. Then he threw a bitch fit because he doesn’t like to die. So I explained to him why he died he didn’t care his tummy hurt. So after eight years of catering to his ego I have had enough. I am sick of dealing with the “me,me,me.
attitude. He doesn’t try to rp with us. He can never think of anything to do. We have to walk on eggshells around what he will and won’t do. So that is it. I am not asking him to rp with us again. We always have to cater to his giant ego. And I say Fuck That.
So thanks for letting me rant. I will try to be more civil next post. Take care gentle readers. Lady Soket
