Dad was upset when he realized that my brother was NOT going to cancel his trip to Britain after the bombings last Thursday, but we managed to calm him down. I reminded him that when we were in England, a bomb had gone off at Kings Cross while we were waiting to get into our hotel room... So we convinced him it would not be worse than then.
I have a game tomorrow, then I am home until after my brother gets back from Britain next month. [Well, I suppose I could go somewhere after work next Saturday, but it would be tricky. If Kathy is down that weekend, maybe.] So my gaming will be limited to my PBEM.
Since the last message indicated that something very interesting was about to happen, I will probably be impatiently waiting until the DM has uninterrupted time to continue the scene. Which will probably not be today. Of course, it would help if some of the other players would be more talkative... But if they were all as voluble as I am it would probably make the DM's job harder, and I want him to have time for ME.
