For those of you who follow the D&D campaign:
You’ll notice I’m still posting session 9. In our game, we are actually done with session 11, and session 12 is planned for this Sunday. Session 11 happened the week before Christmas. In preperation for the coming game, I went to listen to the session 11 recordings and see where we left off. It seems that while we did indeed record the entire 5-hour session, the microphone had been unplugged at some point, so we had recorded 5 hours of silence.
I think, as an experiment, that this D&D campaign blog is a failure. It takes more time to write the narritive than it does to host the session. That means I have to come up with an extra eight hours or so every week, on top of normal DM prep time. I just don’t have it, and so this site didn’t turn out as well as I’d planned.
I still plan to stick it out, although I still don’t know what I’ll do for session 11. We’re getting near the end, and I hate to stop now.
Thanks for reading.

From the company that brought us Fallout 76 comes a storefront / Steam competitor. It's a work of perfect awfulness. This is a monument to un-usability and anti-features.
