On Saturday I made some pretty boss lasagna. Used Monterey Jack and Colby Jack cheeses this time. Picture at end of post.

On Sunday, I saw a matinee of Over the Hedge at the local Starplex theater (an 8-screen cinema just off S 317th St.). Pretty good movie. Great voice acting. Better than Finding Nemo and Madagascar, not as good as The Incredibles. Really looking forward to X-Men 3 this Thursday, even if everything I’ve heard about it from Beefy seems to indicate it’ll suck.

Monday was my D&D game with the new group. I ended up playing an elf instead of a gnoll (just made more sense as a ranger). The group consists of Saurer, the half-elf dragon shaman (played by Pat, who hosted the game at his house in Renton), Ollimar, who I think was a human duskblade (played by Keith), Iffa, the human knight (played by the DM’s little brother, Ian), and Dawn, an elan psion (played by Patrick). The game started off slow but picked up speed as things progressed. Basically, we were hired by a town council to find a particular gnome and some works of art he owed them. This lead to a lot of travel, some detective work, and a few puzzles involving wood golems, traps, and hidden chambers. It was good to meet some new people and I didn’t have to navigate the labyrinth that is the Renton suburbs on my own since I was able to carpool with our DM, Chris.

BTW, this site is pretty handy for building a D&D 3.5 character quickly.

    I can’t believe you’re cheating on us with another gaming group.

    *runs off crying*

    I’ve been using Pathguy for years. It’s not bad, although it’s kinda easy to buff your beginning stats to 18′s. I gotta admit, making a half-dragon vampire is fun, though.

    The weekend of the 9th-11th is going to be hell, though. Ben, his bro, and myself are running an eighteen-person, level 10 campaign. Holy god.

    Eighteen people? Gah… I can’t imagine dealing with even half that number of players simultaneously.

    Re: Beefy: If you and Jones drove up, I’d be happy to have weekly games with you instead… but nooooo, you’re too busy with your pizza-store cronies. So nyah.

  5. Beefy:

    You leave Tanner out of this!

    Anywho, check your e-mail and sign onto AIM whydontcha.

  6. Jones:

    Beefy I think he’s breaking up with us, why cruel world why!?!?

  7. hjo3:

    OMG you guys are such dorks… :P

  8. Hecatomb:

    As I recall Hank, your Theiomundi campaign had 10 players at one time, and they all played in at least two sessions.

  9. hjo3:

    Really? We were up to ten? Sheesh!

  10. Beefy:

    Me, Justin, Jones, JD, Drew, Aaron, Shea, Kevin, Hanwool, and Phil if memory serves. But we never all played at one time.

  11. Hecatomb:

    I distinctly remember one session where all 10 of us were present. And I think there may have been one other.
