Breaking up is hard enough.

In the middle of a crowded mall, is where he broke up with me. It was there he told me that he just didn’t have the time for us anymore. No, I’m not talking about my boyfriend breaking up with me, I’m talking about something much more serious. My DM broke up with our group. And oddly enough, I felt as if  I was going through an actual break up.

Our little Dungeons and Dragons group has gone through a lot. We’ve had members leave, and join. We had one member get shipped off to Afganistan, and we even had a character die. I feel much like, many relationships, this one just didn’t get to see the end reward.

Am I mad? No, not really. Am I sad? Of course.  Countless hours of my Friday nights spent around the table, rolling my dice are gone. But, in the end it is the memories that carry on, and that’s what gets me through. I wanted to learn to play, and I did. Am I a wonderful player, no not really. But I’m okay with that, because I had fun doing it.

So now that my Friday nights are free … is there anyone out there who needs a date?

Fancy parties

So, at our last D&D session, our group was invited to a super fancy party as a reward to our prowess in the battle arena. Or at least that’s what we thought. Anyway, one of our ‘challenges’ was to decide and write down what our character was going to wear to this gathering.

So without further ado, I present to you Bowie’s journal from that day. Bowie is a level 8 (almost level 9) tiefling bard.

As soon as we got out of the arena, we were approached by a woman who invited us to a party. As custom dictates we were to dress to impress.  Not that I don’t do that on a regular basis though. You never know when you might need to impress someone.

My outfit a black belt with gray music notes stitched into it. The skirt was split on both sides up to my thigh, and was also black. The embroidery on it was also music notes, but this time in an original composition, written by yours truly. The necklace I’m wearing is made of sterling sliver and has onyx stones  set in it. There are also tiny diamonds, every 5th stone.

I’ve never spent this many gold pieces on clothing before. While I do dress to impress, usually a plain skirt and top will do just fine.

The best thing I was able to buy while here, was the sitar. It was carved out of reeds and stained to be a deep ruby red.  The strap that holds it was made by the same tailor who made my skirt and belt. It was crafted beautifully. The strap is black with red and gray music notes stitched into it, this time though the composition is an old hymn from back home. Of course the tailor doesn’t know that, he just thinks it’s an original composition. I couldn’t tell him that. He wouldn’t take kindly to that seeing as how in his world our gods don’t exist.

Oh, they’re knocking at the door I guess it’s time to go. I’ll make sure to tell you all about everything when I get home.
