Clearly the love affair with blog has waned recently, but I’ve forced myself back into it this morning …….. Part of the problem is definitely the changes that have been made to the App, it’s such a chore to use now, I long for the halcyon days of simplistic blog posting 😦

But enough grumbling, illness of course continues unabated, the other week I was having a new test in Hospital, and the test took 3 hours to perform so I got to wear my special person red bracelet whilst I was admitted (& then as usual forgotten about for an hour). The test was to see if I’m allergic to Lactose, officially I’m not – Yay! However as usual I did display the physical symptoms of being allergic, whilst the science showed I was deficient in lactose. I would like to go on record as saying I went into the test determined not to be allergic to Lactose, so psychosomatically the results don’t add up either :-/

Now the fun bit, yesterday I was involved in a full Geek day πŸ˜‰ we started a new Roleplay game – Victoriana finished last time – and it was time for D&D 5th Ed. I stayed true to my plan and didn’t build a Rogue class character, I’m the Fighter for the party. And “Rudi” did a pretty decent job of tanking. Sure I just about failed every to hit roll, but all my perception and intimidate rolls worked, in fact the intimidation criticaled meaning it succeded and then some actually avoiding a fight for the party πŸ™‚

I also unwittingly Roleplayers the hell out of the character, only realizing it upon reviewing my character sheet once home. Much to the rest of the parties bemusement in every combat (where I mostly didn’t hit) Rudi just strode forward to meet the threat literally head on. Now as a background choice my character flaw is that he believes himself impervious to harm (despite the fact I was the only character to go down to 0 hit points and get my death rolls at 3 successes, 2 failures – it was tense with that last roll!). His belief is based on (via the back story I wrote) the fact that upon hearing from other soldiers that there is a sword or arrow out there with your name on, Rudi keeps in a pouch around his neck and arrow head and a piece of blade with his name inscribed on πŸ™‚ And just to make absolutely sure Rudi (which everybody knows him as) isn’t his real name, as his logic dictated that it would be really clever to change his name and keep his real name secret, but still inscribed uppon those 2 items around his neck πŸ™‚

So by blindly bulling into all combats I was not only making sure I don’t slip into a rogue class (my usual Modus Operandi), but also sticking closely to my characters background πŸ˜‰
