DarK_RaideR - En garde! I'll let you try my Wu Tang Style


Recommended Posts

Day 8 (Sep. 21) - First day back at the office after nearly a month away. Somehow it ended up being a super productive one, including my afternoon game journalism shift. With Microsoft buying out Bethesda, there was a lot of news to write about.

Teq'neek is the resident MC of the Fiery Grog Tavern, and despite his posthumous existence, his fiery rhymes and mind-affecting spells are enough to ensure most people don't overthink the undead part of the deal. Teq'neek the Immortal is, like most of his fellow lyrical artists, exaggerating; he is not actually immortal, since his corpse body is prone to natural decay, decomposition and the effects of physical or magical violence. One day he'll find his way to magically restore himself back to life (or plunge himself into lichdom), but for now he's killing rats in a basement and killing it on the floor every night until he can figure out the Rhyme of Resurrection or something.

Instantly thought of this from my childhood:

Day 9 (Sep. 22) - Weird day, but pushed through regardless. Also inquired about medical certifications needed to make my Muay Thai return in October.

Day 10 (Sep. 23) - Barely a breath to be had, between work A, driving around, work B, making cookies for the SRLF and booking tickets for the Athens International Film Festival after last minute CV measures forced them to fully switch to open air cinemas and alter the screenings schedule. Also, I finished and posted my review of Thief: The Dark Project. Remember that one?

Won't lie, I draw inspiration from many sources

 

Day 11 (Sep. 24) - Worked from home, which also involved playing a bit of Star Wars Jedi Knight Dark Forces  2 for my next game review. Sadly I'm limited to retro games till I can get a more powerful PC, which should happen soon because I'm running out of retro games to review. In the evening I kicked off my AIFF screenings for this year with Nomadland, which didn't quite blow my mind but was pretty solid nonetheless.

This challenge thread is woefully absent of 'bone' related humor.  🙄

I mean, undead bard, sure, but I'd feel like I'm stealing from shaar.

Day 12 (Sep. 25) - Another work from home day. Went out with some friends and colleagues at night, invited them to dinner as thanks for their recent help with some cases.

We need a necromancer to bring Shaar back.

I reached out to her like a couple of weeks ago (ironically, because all the Gary Numan music on your thread) and she's fine, but super deflated in terms of motivation and posting. Happens to us all, I'd trust she'll show up once things turn around.

 

Week 2 results

No damage dealt (besides the indirect one via Bardic Inspiration) but none taken either. This was a throwaway week anyway, as I was still out of town or travelling.

Sep. 28 - Full AF day. Work was slow so I spent the entire time at the office furiously putting my review of Star Wars Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2 together, since it's due till the end of the month, then got home for my 18:00-22:00 videogame news shift and immediately rushed out to watch a movie from 23:00 to like 2am.

Sep. 29 - Guess I needed  the break, because this wasn't as productive a day. I also missed my Charm Person goal, meaning I need to make up for it during the weekend. SRLF came back home spent, she's had a rough couple of days and just couldn't make it to the movie screening, so I went on my own. Gotta say, Liquid Sky was a punk feminist delight of a film.

Sep. 30 - Another super busy day with both work and videogame journalism, but I published my third game review, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II which happily coincided with the return of @EricMN to the NF forums.

Oct. 1 - A stay-at-home day with much housework and a bit of legal work done. Went to watch "Banksy Most Wanted" in the evening, which was a pretty good documentary. I only know the man's (woman's? people's?) art pieces but not quite where they came from and the movie gave me a bit of perspective.
