Any games going on right now?

Would there be any interest in something in the AM eastern time?

The Next Generation of Players: Silas's First Character
This week, my son, who turns four in five days, insisted that "I want to use that book [5e Players Handbook] to make a character for my stories!" So, I broke out the six-sided dice, taught him how to roll stats (4d6, drop lowest), asked him a few basic ques...

I just saw this via your spouse on Facebook!

It really warms my heart. My daughter was four years old when we started playing indie RPGs together. Hard to believe that was nearly a decade ago!

Pee Wee wanted to make a Dungeon World character a couple weeks ago, and the color-first approach of that game worked really well for him: "I have glowing eyes!" But making the character was as far as we got.

When the rest of us are playing, he frequently throws in some ebullient narration, though!

While Harrisonburg has a lot of good Thai restaurants, each with their own advantages, Thai Cafe has, hands down, the best Pho of anywhere I've ever eaten. Everything is served exactly to taste, and, if you like things spicy, the chef grows and preserves his own thai peppers and will give you a large bowl of them on the side with anything you order (just ask). The service is also superb. After your second or third time there the wait staff will almost certainly recognize you. If you're the kind of person who establishes any kinds of habits (same drink, favorite dish, etc.), they'll remember. Definitely the kind of place where it is possible to just say "I want the usual" and actually trust that they'll know what you mean (even if its fairly complicated).

The prices of this place are comparable to all of the other downtown establishments. Their niche, which is necessary in a town with so much good food, is pseudo-greek. Its not the most authentic, but their sovlakis, spanicopita, and baklava are pretty good. Service is pretty good, at lunch time at least. I'm often in there with 8 people or more and can easily place an order, get served, and get out within a reasonable lunch window (about an hour to hour and a half for that size group). Watch out, the waiters can be a bit aggressive on refilling drinks. If you are like me and want to see the bottom of your glass when you leave, you might be out of luck.
