The Samarkand Solution by Gary Gygax

This is my least favourite book in the Inhetep fantasy/mystery trilogy with Death in Delhi being better and The Anubis Murders easily the best.

Gygax show's off the world of Ærth and never hesitates to rush into action. The Samarkand Solution is quickly paced and a masterpiece of classic mystery in an alternate Earth filled with magic (Heka/Magick).

Shawl we dance?

I really dislike summer, I'm not made for heat. I sweat like a man and have the complexion of a vampire.

However season changes make me want to make things, because I'm the most polygamous yarner ever. I can't stick to even 2 or 3 projects, I usually have 5-6 on the go, sometimes up to 10. Of those, most....some....will get completed? It really depends on my attention span. My blankets have fallen to the wayside because working on a heavy blanket when it's 80 degrees inside is not my idea of fun.

Again we had the Meat-Lover's pizza but we kept the Pepperoni because the Player with the codicil against it was absent. I still added philly-cheesesteak meat. I was cautioned against adding the extra cheese by the chef, telling me with too many toppings it wouldn't cook properly.

Due to external factors, we again had a minimal quorum.

Apparently the Meat-Lover's pizza selection without the pepperoni and adding the philly-cheesesteak meat has become the party's standard. Next time I may add extra cheese.

Sock it to me!

One of the things I like about knitting and crocheting is there is so much to learn and I feel there are so many 'firsts' I can experience.

The other day, I came across a sock loom that I had bought a few years ago. It's the Prym Knitting Sock Loom-Large, I've been avoiding it since I bought it because the instructions made sock-making seem difficult. The instructions are in 7 different languages, so it's a bit of a challenge to locate and follow the english instructions. I cast on some dark grey sock yarn (Always use a dark colour when you're trying something new, it's so easy to see! /end sarcasm)

Ə - Gauze of Awareness

This gauze when wrapped around the head, covering the eyes, (i.e. blind beggar) provides a complete awareness of everything around the wearer within a combat turn's distance. The Gauze does not confer sight, just awareness, so one would know that there is a book on the table but not be able to read the book.

The effects of the Gauze are quite disconcerting to sighted people. All actions that require an Aspect roll are made at a -2 penalty. Blind people using the Gauze are able to do so without penalty and get a +2 bonus to non-mental Resists (e.g. Sleep and Charm spells).

I forget what Pizza it was but I think it was yummy. I remember asking the owner from the menu what was the difference between a White and a Marguerite pizza and he said "salt".

We did not have a quorum this week due to Player's business commitments. However the two that did show up were able to go on as side mission. It dovetailed from the previous week.

Games are on Monday night sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

This week we had the extra large meat lover's pizza with pepperoni out, philly-cheesesteak in.

This week the party didn't really do much so I'll keep it short.

First item on the agenda was a door behind which lived an Ogre. Huang and Honda defeated him easily.

Knitting: Spin me a yarn...in public!

I always get excited when I see someone crafting in public, it gives me the warm fuzzies. It honestly hasn't happened that often and mostly I've seen it at fibre fests or craft shows. I knit anywhere and everywhere that doesn't seem inappropriate. Usually I'm met with curious glances and the occasional 'My grandma used to knit.' Very rarely another yarn-er will come up to me and we'll get into a discussion about what I'm making, the pattern, the type of yarn, etc.

After capturing the fort's defenders and enslaving them they were disarmed and made slaves. They got to keep their armor however.
