I didn't feel that thrilled by this session. But Lori said that it was a good session, and as I think about it, I guess it was. I had been worried earlier, because I was sleep-deprived and couldn't suppress my yawning, but things worked out anyway.

One fabulous thing: Dani, Monica, Mike, and Lori got me a MasterMaze Room and Passage set. Cool! I have been busily revising my plans to include a dungeon crawl as soon as possible.

First, Turok accidentally left his sword behind in one tavern. Oops. Lots of folks noticed it, though.

Then, for the evening's combat moment, I put in a small pack of gargoyles. This would have been much more challenging if the PCs didn't have magic weapons, but as it was, it was a fairly easy fight. It had some interest, though, since gargoyles had enough attacks to do some damage. But they did little enough damage with each attack that I had no great worries about accidentally killing the PCs. This was a good thing, since I've been having problems with that. I may well use gargoyles again, pumped up slightly and using better tactics.

After that, they went in to Kozel'sk, and we had various roleplaying moments: the meeting with Lord Yvon trying to suss out the foreigners, the conversation with Skullcreeper about the Cataclysm, and Larissa's meeting with the priest of Pelor. These conversations went adequately... I did manage to put on a bit of character personality for Lord Yvon and Skullcreeper, but not as much as I had hoped.

Hopefully, I'll get a bit of time to prepare before the next session--I've been feeling further and further behind for the recent sessions.

(Part of the problem: I'm having increasing difficulty finding published adventures that tie in to my campaign plot. So there's more preparation required for each adventure.)
