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.
Happy New Year!
My whole family was actually here tonight, as my brother brought over Mia and is spending the night with us. I’m still at odds with this whole baby thing. She’s adorable, but she has a set of lungs that make me stand firm in my “I shall never have kids” rule. Like why is she even crying? No tears, no actual crying noises, just one continuous “AHHHHHHH” which she will occasionally smile or laugh in before going back to her fake angry roar. My dog has been looking at me all day with a “please don’t get one of those” look on her face. It’s hilarious but I do feel a bit sad for her, because while she is the sweetest dog children freak her out in a big way. (Me too Leia, me too)
RP Night Recap: So because my mind is in withdrawal mode I had to take a bit of backseat this week BUT we got started on our next quest. Which is basically part one in our “save the comatose guy from the Fade” mission. We have to get a lot of lyrium, which is a highly controlled substance, to use for a spell to transport the two of us non-mage types into the Fade. We have some lyrium (that someone stole *sigh*) but we’d probably get in trouble for having it, so we’re going to procure some in a more open and normal way. So we’re off to the Deep Roads, which is the underground highway controlled by the dwarves but is under constant siege by the darkspawn. We have to help the Legion of the Dead cap off a tunnel. We hit up a nearby town for supplies, I’m bad at haggling so I basically just stared a store keeper down until he gave me a better price for something. It pays to be 7ft tall with horns. We hit the deep roads and the first night there we get attacked. Thorin rolls three 6’s (legendary) and basically blows everyone’s mind in the fight, and I use my new axe for the first time. We stopped there.
