Last night after tze bebe went to sleep, we put the door back on the basement. As no one except my ex-girlfriend and my ex-roommate have seen the door on there before, there's a reason: it makes the basement creepier. It's why we took it off soon after we moved in. However, it makes the dining room baby-safe-able, so sacrifices must be made.
The door was being stored in the "spider closet" under the stairs, so it was retrieved with no small amount of trepidation. I'm not sure if my fears were allayed because I didn't see any giant basement spiders, or if that only scares me more.
House is slowly being cleaned up/reorganized for having my family over for Christmas dinner. Last night, I put my Heroclix away, finally admitting to myself I won't have time to work with any gaming things until after Christmas.( Collapse )
Oh, and all old D&D players out there: do yourself a favor and pick up issue 315 of Dragon magazine. It's full of campaign stuff for virtually all their old campaign worlds, from Greyhawk and Dark Sun, to Maztica and Hollow World! (Their only oversight was not finding room for Spelljammer, but they include the one-sentence version of the Giant Space Hamster stats, so I can't complain.) It's also rich with sidebars, talking about how the different worlds got started, and why some of them didn't work and the like. Very good read.
