04/30/2012 Magnificent Monday!

Good morning and welcome back! I hope everyone had a fun and exciting weekend! We did character intros for Mage and I also went to the Magic: the Gathering prerelease event to try and be a bit social. Didn't do as well as I could have with the card playing, but had lots of fun, talked to nice people, and then got to play a wizard later on that day. All in all a good weekend.

I started typing out 'Daughter of the Shackled King' as of Friday. What I had hoped would be a rather quick process, I believe will be about the speed of a normal story. The part that made it a bit difficult to start, was when I went to find the file I had started several months ago (I've been distracted, ok?) I couldn't find it. I did an entire file search on my computer and it was nowhere to be found. Then I remembered I had reformatted my laptop a couple months ago and realized that file, apparently the only one on my whole computer, didn't live through it. That was a bit frustrating. I believe that what I have now is better, but that doesn't change the fact that I had already started this process and now must start from the beginning.

Going to the prerelease was also an interesting experience. I know the people who ran it, but other than that I was on my own. From what I had heard about people that play at that particular shop I was kind of nervous, but everyone was really nice and one of the girls made cookies for everyone. (Thanks Cordelia, if you're reading this! Those things saved my life!) It was fun to do, we'll see if I get to go to the next one.

Then it was off to start the Mage campaign. Now sometimes when we start new games it's hard for me to feel really involved, but because my friend and I had been doing some prep-work beforehand, this was a much easier transition than I'm used to. For those that aren't familiar, in Mage: the Awakening, you play someone that's well, a magician. In our game we're setting it in modern times, you can make a character that's part of an Order, or someone who isn't, and you try to gather the secrets of magic while not ripping reality apart.

As I said before, because we got to 2000 views I have something for everyone. So, for now until May 30th, you can get 'The Light Rises' for 75% off! That will make it $1.00 for those who are like me and want computers to do the math for you. Just got to 'The Light Rises' and use the coupon code AW99C when you go to check out to get the discount. Thanks everyone for helping us get this far! I look forward to many other celebrations too! See you all on Wednesday!
