Well...we did chop down one tree. you know, Circle of Life and such.

And then there was the time that we almost burned down our own grove.

That one was not really planned.

I have been incredibly busy this past week, so to all of you who have been good enough to Rp with me recently (including my two new guildies that have joined my fledgling merc outfit), I'm very sorry about my spotty presence. I have a couple more busy days ahead of me, then things should be back to normal on monday. Can't wait to get gaming again!


P.S. Thain is awesome!

Howdy folks. Thought I should give an update here for anyone who might be wondering where I disappeared to.

After months of looking for a new home we finally found one and moved into it. We are in a very rural setting and there was no internet available here except satellite. If any of you have ever looked into that then you know satellite limits your monthly data after which your internet speeds are reduced to a point where streaming movies is not really an option. So, I've had to dance around with the local cable company to get cable installed out here. It's about $7500 to get that done because they have to replace the power pole that goes to our property in order for the cable to have proper height clearance where it crosses the road. That is bad enough, but the cable company has to wait for the local power company to replace the pole, and they can take up to six months to do so. Just signed the contract a few days ago so it still may be a while before I can get back in game.

At present our internet consists of a mobile hotspot on my wife's phone. Very limited data, and the fastest speed I've been able to get so far is about 4 meg. I could probably game with that but it would eat up our monthly data too quickly and then it slows down to a speed about equal to an old dial up connection.

Hope to see you all IG in the not too distant future.

It is good to hear that you are well !

You are definitely missed. Roklynd will always have his seat waiting for him on Nature Night.

Looking forward to having you back IG.

Not exactly going away, but what has happened is my wife is starting her new job tonight. Why is this a matter? It is the night shift. This means the house is under daddy rule now, thus dinners, homework, and childhood angst is my responsibility.

This puts much of my usual night play at risk. Hopefully Iíll figure it all out and come up with a new schedule for myself, both work, play and likely sleep, but until then I wonít exactly be dependable to be online as a player nor DM.

Hopefully this wonít be permanent and I can be on as much if not more than before. Until then be good, or at least be good at it.

My home is in the path of hurricane Florence. There's about a 90% chance I lose power or internet, or both.
