Instead I'll bore you with some PC stories!
I kid.....I kid.....or am a I?
Gaming hasn't picked up from the holiday lull yet, well......table-top RPG gaming, so lately I've been doing the Xbox thing (I find Minecraft to be a good time-waster and far more relaxing than anticipated) and I'm slowly working on a new small form factor PC. I found an Intel i9 12th Gen processor that had two SATA slots....normally this tiny size only has one. Also this....
.....and I think I lost a few readers there. Damn, I guess those kind of PC stories aren't going to fly either!
Well I am looking forward to the next few months, because I have a few things going on, but they're more time-fillers until NTRPG in June. We should have game registration soon and I was hoping to run something this year, but I have to travel a bit lighter this year for a convention I drive to....just one of those "goings on" overlaps NTRPG a teensy bit (Sunday).
I mentioned NTRPG Facebook Auctions a couple of weeks ago, and as we get closer (up to a point) the auction activity will likely pick up. I would imagine some of the primo stuff will be be held for the actual NTRPG Auction and/or Squeeky Wheel (raffle), but there is clearly a lot of good stuff going up on Facebook....oh, and it looks like there are still convention tickets available!
....as much as I don't want competition on this good stuff, it does benefit the con, so maybe you should check it out. Just do it tomorrow though 'cause I think I'm still winning the auction for some zines I had my eye on.
In the meantime I have some Minecraft on standby.....
In case you really needed an "actual" PC story:
This one time, in HackMaster, my brand-new 1/2 Ogre Fighter (Dual Wielding 2H Longswords!) was fighting in this arena and he climbed up real high (like 120') onto a platform where he was promptly pushed over the edge by a wall of force. Facing his imminent demise (12d6 penetrating, average of 48 hp of damage!) I asked the GM if he could draw both swords as he fell to face death like a bad-ass....which was allowed. The GM gave an evil laugh as he rolled the 12d6p damage....until he realized there were a lot of 1's and 2's and no 6's (penetration)! Oh, and falling damage is crushing damage, which 1/2 Ogres only take half damage! My lucky SOB was able to get up and dust himself off to fight another day!
