I definitely miss flying in my dreams - haven't done that in ages. I wonder how many teeth-falling-out dreams I have to have before getting back to the flying ones.....blech. Blech, I say.
And D&Ding last night was a bit disappointing, too. Meh. Admittedly, I wasn't doing a particularly good job of roleplaying my character, but it was another of those hack-and-slash things where we basically go, "Oh, mother of Fook! Not again!" and go slashy-slashy. I'm fairly sure there's supposed to be more with the characters - and I know I got pissy at the end when I was chastised for not doing anything more with mine.
Ah well - at least I have an idea of how I'd like my character to behave. Should be straightforward to roleplay, as well. Which is just as well, since I'm just getting used to the terminology. "I want to do that thing where I know they're coming and will slash-slash them if they get near me." "You mean 'ready an action against someone charging.' " "Um, yes, that. "
Repeat 20 times, with different terminology. Sigh. I knew there'd be a steep learning curve, but that doesn't mean I have to not get aggravated about it.
Though it is this bonding experience thing. Which makes me want to roleplay with unpleasant company even less. Plus, I don't entirely trust myself not to be hostile to said company. Which means I'd better work it into my character's personality. Eh. There are worser fates.
In other news, I'm re-reading Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy. I'd nearly forgotten how much I enjoyed those. Hee. I organized my IM list by jewel strength. [geek point]
