The Quest For RPG Plunder

Yesterday was Free RPG Day and while I didn't get a treasure horde, I did in fact have a fun time in participating!

It all begin with me meeting my friend Jo on the 2 train. I had invited her a few nights before and she was pretty excited to go. Once we had gotten off, we say that the rain we had persevered against was no stronger than ever! The two of us persevered against the elements with only our trusty magical map (read: Google Maps) to guide us. After what seemed like forever (it was really a few blocks) me and Jo reached the mecca we were looking for: The Compleat Strategist.

A wee bit of history and explanation: The Compleat Strategist is a gaming store here in New York City and is the only store here dedicated to just gaming. This was both our first time here and we were eager to check it out.

I got a quick-start of TORG: Eternity while Jo got a quick-start of Dungeon Crawl Classics. After that we took a look around the store. It had everything from small press booklets to mainstream giant tomes of adventure. After making a mental note of all the stuff I want, we then made a departure to a nearby adventurer's tavern (read: Wendy's) which proved to be a brief respite for the rain. After feasting on burgers, fries, and chicken nuggets, we left and saw that the rain had subsided.

And with that, we began our journey home.

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
