|Madrigal event happened. Final Root Maze mod happened, despite my fears about the weather and inability to do any setup pregame (due to rain). Much of that pre-game time was burned on turning my cribsheet into PC-presentable signs, so it wasn't wasted -- would've been nice to do that beforehand, but I'd been dithering about signs vs. NPC explanations right up till the event where I finally bugged Fearless Leader for input. ("Sometimes", but with pros and cons I didn't have the perspective to generate myself.)
First spring |
Giant piles of hugs and appreciation for tragic_culture, who let me pick up his plot and run away with it, and helped keep me sane through it, and for mknnohbdy and paladin_of_gaia and all the NPCs who dealt with my sleep-deprived explanations and brought it to life, and all the staff who dealt with my being wildly behind schedule, and orionsmom who made sure I ate dinner afterward when I was mostly dead. Lots of warm fuzzies for the mask-makers, too -- Merimask made the fox, wolf, coyote, owl, ivy, autumn leaves, cherry blossoms, and Root Maze (custom running on my fuzzy description of the feel I was looking for); Tom Banwell made the cut-out leaves (he also made the Lord of Winter's snowflake mask); and Crimson Spark made the fall oak.
Then I fell down splat for a while. Somewhere around that I delivered a pile of letters and went out as a few face roles, and even ran one mini-module, and several of the fabulous NPCs kept other threads in the air, and tragic_culture did some damage control on another one. I didn't do any rogue-ing, and one big thread fell on the floor, as did a couple of minor ones -- those will have to get more love next event.
Post-event I went out to clean up, and was toddling along slowly collecting bits and pieces, when suddenly twenty players appeared and -Poof!- it was all cleaned up. Yay!
Next I will sleep for twelve hours, and then start thinking about next event, which is MUCH TOO SOON.
Despite the sleep shortage, I feel better after not thinking about work for several days.
