There's been a lot of stuff interfering with preparation:
- 4 days in Cook Forest
- GURPS tonight
- Game night tomorrow
- home repairs with Lori
And there's plenty of stuff to prepare:
- What the evil greatclub knows about the Cataclysm
- How it seeks to affect the party
- The elf-maiden's backstory
- The description for the monster that's about to attack the party
- The other clues to the cataclysm they might pick up (and that's about all I can say).
I guess I need to figure out which parts can be neglected.
