Different Kinds of Excitement

Since becoming a parent, I’ve had to say and do a lot of things that I never thought I would ever say or do. For instance tonight I had to explain to my five year old that it doesn’t matter if he only pooped a little bit in the tub, he still has to get out of it so I can drain it and clean it. Fun times.

On a more fun note Captain Smirk, the Community Manager for STO teased this today:

Calling all Captains, this will be a big week for #STO so keep your com channels open! So much cool stuff is coming…

I can only guess that means there will be a bunch of dev blogs released. Hopefully with substantial details to placate and/or inflame the playerbase.

And after checking the STO site, there is indeed a Starfleet Operations Report posted. Most of the sections are marked redacted for now and lead to a “Coming Soon” page, but I like the LCARS-ish format they’ve been using for these posts. I’m not sure that the Engineering Core report would be, maybe something more about Tier 6 ships? There’s another Intelligence Briefing about a Delta Quadrant species. Hopefully it will be an exciting week in the no-drama no-forum rage sense of the word.

Adventure Co.

I got my copy of the D&D Player’s Handbook today for 5th Edition. I had actually already started  on my character but I’m not sure now. My first impulse was to make a Human Wizard, which is the same character I ran in our first campaign. My character in our aborted second campaign was a Goliath Warden, but the quick start rules I was using last night were pretty bare. Flipping through the book today, I’m leaning towards rolling a Gnome instead but either keeping the Wizard class or maybe going with Sorcerer. I’ve always loved magic-using classes.

    I think the last thing I played in STO was the space-walk mission. I need to get back in, just need to find the want to do so. I’m sure it’ll be soon, though.

    Also, Gnome Clerics FTW!!! (this is what I’m playing in a current PF group :P )

      I was thinking of starting a regular weekly STO play night. Interested?

        A definite ‘maybe’. Hehe I’d like to, I’m just really terrible at weekly groups as my schedule is always so up in the air. But let me know what day you choose, and I’ll try to make it as often as I can. :)

          The small fleet I’m in with some Twitter friends is planning to get together Sunday evening at 9pm eastern. Come along if you’re free. Actually, you may already be in the fleet, I think.
