Not much time, so for now, just a short overview of the NERO weekend.
Friday night I got to the site in a pretty foul mood and was not feeling up to playing at all, so I went to bed before game even started. I figured I'd start Saturday off well rested in a better frame of mind.
This strategy worked pretty well and Saturday morning I went out in a recurring NPC role to push along the plot a little. Of course that all meant that I didn't get into game as Kumir until Saturday around noontime and therefore I wasn't really invested in any of the plots. I did participate in the puzzle/riddle portion of the tourney with my team and we took the colors presentation. The highlight of the weekend (for me) was the slaver plot in which one of Kumir's sons was introduced. He was played by agraitear
. I can't imagine anyone playing the part better. This turned a kind of "eh" event into a really good event.
Dinner after was a lot of fun. I always enjoy post event time with people. I wish I could do it more often.
On a really positive ending note, I got home to Monique's news that she met with a dietician this weekend for a couple of hours and she will be starting a new diet as soon as the food comes in (in the next couple of days). This is the same plan agraiter used on which he lost and has kept off a lot of weight. I have high hopes for this and I'm really ecstatic that she finally took action. Yay!
