REDACTED and I did some shooting this evening. This is her lining up to shoot her second arrow of the night (And if you zoom in you can see her first arrow was a bullseye).

15 yards.

Congratulate her for gaining +3 in awesomeness.

No idea if this will be any good or not, or if it's even necessary when TOR is such a great game, but I have never been disappointed by a C7 product.

I do know a big OSR fan who, once they played the One Ring, found a way to add combat stances and journeys. I can see how Journey hazards would be a nifty replacement for random encounters, now I type that.

At the moment I'm hip deep in prep and excitement for my new Hangouts One Ring campaign, and falling in love with it yet again.

Well, tonight I ran my 40th consecutive session of my bi-weekly (as in every other week, not the other bi-weekly) The One Ring RPG campaign based on +Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan's most excellent The Darkening of Mirkwood (but with not a little of my own material thrown in for good measure). We are nine years into the story of the campaign, which is basically a third of the way through the story, and things are beginning to become ominous.

Tonight, old allies and old hurts came back to haunt certain members of the party as Asfrid (+Sophia Grace) was asked by King Bard himself (her former... eh... it's complicated...) to investigate a potentially fiendish plot by servants of the Shadow in Lake-town. It became something of a girl's night out as Eydis, one of Bard's agents (+Jessica Feehan), Foxglove the Hobbit (+Benjamin Feehan) and Lumeryn, elf of the wood and long-time friend of Asfrid since a fateful Dragontide nearly eight years ago (+Amanda Rhoades) went off to investigate the Wyrmtooth's Rest and found a trap door (pun intended) leading to a network of precarious walkways on the underside of Lake-town.

Dragontide is upon us. The Day of the Black Arrow is in the morning, as is the pudding cookoff Foxglove has been preparing for all year. Sinister plots are brewing, and Asfrid and Lumeryn still need to find time to prepare for the Council of the North, upon which they are to sit to represent their respective peoples.

I'm loving this campaign, I am extremely grateful to have a group with the necessary attention spans to stick with me for 40 session and counting. I love the ways the lives of the characters have become integrated into everything that is happening in the world around them.

+Jonathan Rhoades needs to bring Narvi back soon, though, before Berger gets to feeling too outnumbered.

I had a fun afternoon/evening introducing a new generation of players to the hobby via the Pathfinder Beginner box and some old school house rules. The night ended in a glorious TPK versus a Drow Priestess and her Bugbear guards.

Root beers for scale.

Found this random picture tonight while looking for something else. It's +Sophia Grace​ and I at a Scottish Country/English Country ball we attended earlier this year.

I remember the first time I read this story a couple of years ago. I broke down crying when he finally got to see his tree, and +Sophia Grace​ walked past right at that moment and totally freaked out.

I could shoot a glass bow, or one with wheels on it. Certainly, as plenty of people have pointed out to me, that would be easier, more efficient, etc.

But when you take a 60# Yew Longbow out for an evening and you get feathers touching all night, well, there's nothing else quite like it.

This particular end was shot at 30 yards. One flier in the bunch.

For tonight's session of Ta'Nar, +John-Matthew DeFoggi significantly amped up the number of eyestalks involved as we explored the hold of the Briar Rose.

It was a great time. I am shooting for the 'most eyes in an encounter' achievement.

All flesh is like grass
And all its glory like the flower of grass.

The grass withers,
And the flower falls,
But the word of the Lord remains forever.

This is a bad month for spending money on this, but this is super cool. Maybe some of my fellow Plussers also enjoy being out on the water.
 
Oh my Gorsh this is a friend of mine doing this and she and her company is so damn close to funding this project!

Please share this! Surely you know some people who are into kayaking. Even if you don't get a kayak, maybe just share and send them a few bucks?

PAKAYAK goes everywhere, stores anywhere. Carry it on your back, take it in your car. Paddle it like a traditional hard-shell kayak.

+Benjamin Feehan I think for most things people use Kayaks for this would probably be fine, but that would definitely be something to look into.
