I know I had a Civilization IV Liveblog that I was supposed to be doing, but long story short, things didn't go as planned, and by the time they were turned the right direction, I wasn't exactly in a position to continue the Live Blog right then and there. But rest assured, that one WILL get started eventually. Assuming the same problem doesn't pop up.
In the meantime, here's an alternative liveblog with a subject that's always entertaining, Tabletop Role Playing Games! Because who doesn't love reading about the ridiculous antics that RPG parties always inevitably get into?
Starting this Thursday; the basic setting is from the Fantasy companion with an Ancient Grome twist, as you might have guessed based on the title of the blog. I don't know the full details yet, but I do know enough that I've been able to create my basic character based on the setting and the basic roles that are filled in the team.
We have a Wizard - who's suggested he may have a vow of offering hospitality to anyone that asks for it (as he described it, we could have a dragon come into camp asking for a place to stay and he'd agree to it) - likely some kind of Minotaur, probably another fantasy creature like centaur, and I think at least one other basic warrior. And then there's my character, the one with the archery skills.
Meet Ariel. Or as her friends call her, Erin.
(Ariel says Hi and waves to you all, BTW

EDIT: Make that NEXT NEXT Thursday/Friday, since the GM had to cancel the first (EDIT:) and second game session(s). :-/
Until then, stay Fast, Furious, and Fun, Folks! :-D
