Restarted game after a three-week hiatus, and it was good. The kind of in-game moral boost that feels riiiiiight, some investigative work and preparation, and a nice cliffhanger to tide them over. And everyone was roleplaying well; an ex-paladin's moral crisis, a half-elf flippant and a half-elf sneaky; both caring and silliness from the priest; and a good mix of indignation and self-importance from the bard.
Plus, some of my favorite NPCs made guest appearances.
Eventually, in the next month or so, I hope to post the Dwarf and Ninja series. This is stealthmuffin

Thanks for listening to my academiangst. You can ignore entries like that, if you wish; or maybe I should just privatize them. Core dumps of that nature, where I take a bundle of insecurities and just plop it on the keyboard, are extremely cathartic.
And, like fairoriana
, I have many things to be thankful for. It's not Thursday yet, but here are a few:
--Working in quiet and peace with acute concentration
--That feeling of accomplishment from crossing off the to-do list
--Intelligent, argumentative people, even if I can't always appreciate them.
--Order of the Stick.
--Health of body and mind, stability of job and life, loves and friendships.
--Being alive, in general.
--Cinnamon tic-tacs. Yes, it's whiplash from "being alive."
--My silver astrolabe
--An active imagination and the ability to pull things out of nowhere and have it work. Usually. In conjunction with adequate preparation.
