Tales of the Rampant Coyote

Adventures in Indie Gaming!

Happy Thanksgiving!

For readers in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving!

For everyone else, Happy Thursday!

This one will be a little weird, as it’s the first time in almost twenty years our eldest daughter won’t be with us. She’s serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in South Carolina. It’ll be weirder having Christmas without her.

We have a tradition with our group of friends to turn the 4-day weekend into a gaming holiday. When we were in college, far from home, and couldn’t afford plane tickets for just the weekend, we’d get together with other friends in the same boat and turned what was previously far from my favorite holiday into a total party. We’d be known to start a game after dinner on Thursday (when we’d all bring stuff for a great dinner),  go until midnight, then play from noon to midnight for the next two days. Believe it or not, we actually got sick of playing D&D by the end of the weekend, which is why we’re not quite so bold anymore. That, and we now have family close, and Thursday gets to be spent more with them.

But we’re still playing a bunch of Pathfinder this weekend. And we’re going to watch the Rifftraxed version of Hawk the Slayer tomorrow night. It’s a-gonna be awesome!
