After the initial ZOMG, my printer won't print! issue yesterday, it turned out to be a great day! This was a special week, with it being Weekend in the Realms, a special Living Forgotten Realms game day.

Well, one glitch was that I realized once I was on the north side of town that I'd forgotten my dice and my minis. But I bought a set of dice (one can never have too many dice!) at the store.

Brad ran the Weekend in the Realms table that I played at for the first slot. I played my Githzerai, Ella Oghmadottir, level 1 Avenger of Oghma. It was a great table. A father and son were playing at our table. I was cautious about how fun it would be playing with an 8 year old. Aside from his in character viciousness, wanting to kill everything where the rest of the team wanted only to subdue, but that was more an age related thing where he was unable to see the gray area we were treading, with the people we were there to help seeing us as the enemy (we were outsiders, not of their tribe!), but we handled that in roleplay and it was kind of neat, especially since his father was playing a Pacifist Cleric, who was doing an awesome job with both the roleplaying and the healing. Our table took the longest to finish because of having a youngster who was learning the ropes (and often causing us to fight rather than negotiate), but it all worked out and we saved the day.

During the dinner break, this father and son (whose real names I, unfortunately, can't remember) happened to also come to Burger King for their dinner, so we sat and ate our dinner together. Nice people, and it was great to eat dinner with someone, it's one of the side benefits of going to RPGA for me.

Second slot was marvelous fun! We played DALE1-5, which ended a major quest. [livejournal.com profile] serok42 played HAL, a Warforged Paladin of Gond. Matt ran his Drow rogue, Lucita. Robert (not my son, a different Robert, but a really nice guy, too) played Clanmourn, a Dwarven Avenger of Tempus. And I played Aila, my Drow archer Ranger. We played High Tier, meaning that we had more in terms of both the quantity and difficulty of the foes we faced for greater XP and treasure. Great roleplay all around and wonderful teamwork. Lucita, who is unaligned, kept trying to corrupt my good aligned Aila (who had been raised by a human), showing her how real Drow should behave. Lucita and Aila have a love-hate relationship and work well together. They get along in their own way. HAL had some difficulty with sarcasm, then got sarcastic himself. He was our party's voice, though, in any negotiations being the only party member with real social skills. And I felt like I was really on my game, even if the dice weren't always in my favor. But with as much damage as we had going with three strikers, and as much defense and healing as we had with HAL the warforged Paladin of Gond, we did great!

Got home and I started updating my characters in the Character Builder, and discovered that when I switched to tracking my adventures on the Character Builder that I'd left out some adventures that I'd played. So I stayed up until around 3:30 AM going through the tracking on the RPGA site (before they stopped having DMs send in character tracking info) and my RPGA reward slips to figure out where I was with Aila. Turns out, she was actually level 10 last night when I started, not level 9 like I thought. :/ Hopefully that won't make too much difference. I did MC her as Rogue, taking the Sly Dodge multiclass feat for 1/encounter armor class boost against opportunity attacks and the additional social skill of Intimidate. Figured she'd learned some intimidation tactics from Lucita. ;)
