The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
It’s been a sort of migraine muddled week for me…so I can’t say I remember a ton of what I did. I’m used to the pain because I’ve dealt with them for about 12 years now, but it’s the memory loss and speech issues that’s terrifying. Here’s hoping I find a job soon so I can get into the doctor for some migraine meds! I did go see Fantastic Beasts on Friday and really loved it! I loved pretty much everything save one thing…and only one thing, which has nothing to do with writing and everything to do with one actor towards the end.
RP Night update! Last week’s update left us with the characters finishing off a cult leader and a whole lot of explosive powder missing. This week we scrambled in the wee hours of the morning to rouse everyone we had made friends with and rushed to stop the plot from going down. My character had to work with a guy she wanted to avoid because he basically represents everything my character’s mother escaped from (Dragon Age fans: I’m a Qunari but I’m Vashoth, he is a Qun following Qunari), but also because she didn’t want to be anywhere in this guy’s or his leader’s sights. She found out he has an issue with the merc band she used to be with due to some problem that happened before she was born. He’s in charge of recovering the explosive powder that was missing. We rounded up a lot of guys to help us and made short work of the people who were set to blow up a stadium full of people.I gained the respect of the Qunari who was in charge of recovering the explosive powder. (Little did I know my bf’s character decided to snatch a bag of powder for himself. So…that might come back to bite me in the butt). We cleaned up just in time to down a few health potions and head to the tourney. My bf’s character did well, but ultimately was defeated by his opponent…who he’s had a rivalry with since entering the city and who immediately tried to kill him despite it being a friendly competition. Our new found dwarven allies immediately decided to toss him to the angry spectators where he was beaten pretty badly and taken into custody. We shall pick up with my fight this evening!
