If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

You guys are lucky. Normally I work every other Wednesday, but I have a meeting this one. So I can do this Wednesday.

I can't do Wednesday. I'm available every night this week except for Wednesday and Friday.

I guess we can do next Monday at my place. My girlfriend will probably be there, so you all can meet her. :-)

I'm getting an odd feeling that the campaign is about to end with a whimper. :cool:

I'll fill out a journal entry anyway. Our party traveled to the Fane of Tiamat on a dusty road leading up to a set of double doors on the side of a stone mound. There was a cave far above our position, and so I had Hrothgar send Banjo to fly up and investigate. Well, we soon got into a scrap with a dragon, and a few rounds later, it was joined by its buddy, so soon we were fighting both a Blue and Green Dragon. It galls me to admit this, but we were ill-prepared, and unable to defeat 'em. During the fight, we almost lost a couple party members, and were forced to seek refuge behind the large stone double doors, inside the Fane itself. We planned to go back outside, and renew our assault, when the last session ended....

Clearly we are suffering some serious setbacks as to completing this campaign.

Mutt, since you're technically out of work I can sort of understand your current mentality of "Work all hours like I'm still 22 and drink and fuck like crazy when I'm not working cuz sleep is for the weak". But if you think you're going to be busy like this for the forseeable future, then it would be easier if you just let us know now instead of week to week.

Blumpy, you've been tied down with various school commitments and ass problems and what-not. If you can figure out what your schedule is going to be like week to week, it would be easier to plan our sessions.

imurrx, your shifting work schedule has made it an iron-bound pain in the ass to plan sessions since you're unable to commit to the same exact day each week. It would be infinitely easier for everyone to schedule the same day every week like we used to if your hours weren't getting shifted back and forth at work. I'm not blaming you for it, but it is annoying.

Sac Lamb... you're pretty much blameless. Your daily schedule consists of "Asleep, Kinda awake, In the bathroom, Asleep, At the gym, Asleep"

I'm not without blame. I did ditch a session once to get laid. However I won't be doing that again, and I really haven't done it since either. I've also been less than enthusiastic lately since it's a pain to get all ready and then be expected to keep you all entertained and moving during the session.

Mutt, it's annoying as all fucking hell when you fall asleep during the session, get exasperated when the game isn't moving fast enough, or do shit like dump hot wax on me because you're fucking bored. I really wanted to kick you the fuck out of my condo when you did that last week, but that would have ended the session and ruined it for everyone else. I forgive you, but please keep in mind that inflicting physical pain on me just serves to piss me off and while amusing to you, doesn't really move the game along any faster.

Blumpy, it's fucking annoying when you bitched about not being able to do shit, or not having any idea how to use the spells your character has. For future reference, you might want to start out using a character that is a bit simpler to use. You'd definitely have more fun that way.

Sac and imurrx, you guys bloat your characters with ridiculously legal munchkined complexity that often leaves me scratching my head and wondering "They can fucking do that??"

And Sac, you're guilty of being a condescending douche-bag former DM. You do help out at times, but your level of general knowledge in the game is higher than my own, and often higher than your character. You do tend to use that knowledge to your advantage in the game, even when your character wouldn't know that shit without a high knowledge check.

I'm guilty of basically not knowing as much as Sac in terms of gameplay and D&D mechanics.

Basically, we're all a motley crew of douche-bags that are difficult for a semi-novice DM like myself to play with. If we continue playing in the future I will be using a module that I have written myself. But if we want to continue playing, I need one day a week committed to. A single static day that we can all agree on. This would have to be either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. ONE of these days will have to be our static gaming day, like Monday used to be. If this cannot be static, then we will need to plan our sessions at least a month at a time with everyone agreeing on each day per week. This shouldn't be hard for you imurrx, since you have to base things on your work schedule, or hard for you Lamb, since you aren't doing anything anyway.

Hugs and kisses and merry fucking Christmas.

Smooches

Some people like having wax poured on them... It's not the hours I keep that puts me to sleep, it's the dullness when people go off on a tangent about something irrelevant for an hour that does.

And yes a firm day is needed.

The same can be said when you breath fire at the first sign of trouble.

Anyway I do not start bitching now or my blood pressure will rise.

I though we all agreed back a couple of months ago when I got transfered that we would alternate Mondays at Ross's and Tuesday at Mutts' (which would give him an extra day to recover from bar-tending). Apparently it aint good enough or convenient all the time for Mutt, Meatlips or Blumpy.

If you want one simple day to game between Monday through Thursday, the only day I have off each week is every Thursday.

So, it's Thursday or you can count me out.

I have to go Christmas shopping for my wife (last person to buy). So if we were to get together then it would be some time after 8pm.

Now what do you want Meatlips and Mutt? You both wanted a consistent date, so the only one I can do is Thursday. Every other day flips alternating week. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

I do not mind gaming on other days, but every one needs to be 100% committed. I am fed up with people bailing to get laid or get drunk or wimp out because they are too tired or some other lame excuse. Sorry, that does not fly with me.

I have shown up when I am exhausted. I have  push back celebrating family events to make sure I show up. The only times I have bailed is when I had work or a family criss. Hell, the days we game I see my son for just a couple hours so I can get together with you guys.

With that said, I am only going to game when I hear a firm commitment with who ever is going to play. At this point, I frankly don't care what happens to this campaign at this juncture. I am too fed up with people putting this game on the "oh i got nothing else to do so I will show up" list.  If you are going to show up then be in 100% otherwise I don't give a flying fuck. Go off get drunk, get lipstick on your dipstick or what ever. Don't waist my time.

So if people don't give a shit about gaming, then I want no  part in it. I would rather shed the dead weight off and start over with a group who is committed.
