aralli: (aniseed)
Had a great weekend - thank you to everyone who was there. Things that stand out in my memory right now are:

  • No rain all weekend!

  • Thalassa would have had much more to do in the games (and been extremely useful with her wide range of non-injuring disabling spells), but Aniseed made some massive leaps forward in playability and character progression, so I'm happy with who I brought.

  • We always expect great roleplay from Doug, but he blew me away this weekend. Valkyrie and Gerrard - I had tears streaming down my face when he was telling her she would be better, and the look on his face when she said she was in the Prince's Vale, and not a hint of meta from him throughout it. And on Sunday, when Gerrard had his arms blown off and was delirious and straying in and out of lucidity - I could feel Aniseed's fear keep rising every time he started listing or couldn't focus enough to make eye contact.

  • Bonding with Tinker - unexpected, but very rewarding.

  • Getting to play both Aniseed's self-hatred and fear and despair, and having Old Aniseed come out to play and have a lot of fun, without either feeling forced.

  • Giggling at Elvin together (sorry Alex!)

  • Epifanio is a terrible, terrible man. Every hour or so he would give Aniseed a new image to contemplate, usually along the lines of 'naked sunbathing Gladiators oiled and waiting to be massaged'.

  • Flattered confusion from Physara's flyby flirting.

  • Aniseed has a new favourite person.

  • Discovering the White, which has Aniseed's favourite elements of Justice, and praying at the shrine.

  • Playing hide-and-seek with Amy for the first day, then getting confused by Smyrna being polite to Aniseed after that.

  • Growing genuine admiration for Halamar for the way he treated her.

  • All the back-and-forth flirting with Lomax

  • Throwing Exhor forwards to the front line to mend all the broken armour when he was paralysed with confusion, and then making a plan for him to learn Reattach from Interfector so she can learn it from him.

  • Finally letting go of the last of the dregs of hero-worship for Katrin, moving into acceptance/respect, which should hopefully help some of her hang-ups about leaving the Defenders.

  • Methodical working on Prospera's broken limbs with Halamar.

  • Roberto! :D I do hope he comes to the next campaign. Ciao!

  • Bader cat!

  • Telling the kitchen maid various patrol stories.

  • Finally deciding and vocalising that Aniseed couldn't serve two masters at the same time, and chose Justice over the Defenders.

  • Asking Oolong if he was single after mistakenly thinking he had six manors.

  • My hands are a mess. Covered in blisters, scrapes and nicks.

  • Being told 'good job' by Halamar.

  • Pretty sure I called Katrin, Gerrard and Pro sir, ma'am, or Lieutenant X all weekend and didn't use their first names. Magma still got called Magma though, except to his face or when talking to Gerrard.

  • Super-efficient AGM!

  • Bravo to Tom - he went to sleep, then got up again to do his shift on watch.
