Araris' funeral. Mad props to Delo for the writing, and a big shoutout to Osmund for his apt delivery.
Rashaad waking up after having passed out after leading a theoretical ritual. Rashaad: "Did everything go alright?" Ahri: "Yeah, you did just fine." Rashaad, quietly to himself with a fist pump: "Yussss."
Araris: "Strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government!"
Araris' spirit, on his newly-adopted children: "Uhh....I'll always be with you?"
Drowning in tinfoil.
Umbrella-related heart attacks.
The hard truths.
Jeff's Greed Sin: "I DO NOT WANT THIS!"
Experiencing the terror that is buttered lightening.
Matt as his cook: "Ya gotta be an executive chef in order to change the weather."
Matt, also as his cook, talking to Ahri about filo dough, only for Stockbridge to overhear and have a funny anecdote related to filo dough. So random and hilariously awesome. Who the hell has filo dough stories?
Definitely forgetting things here, will edit them in if I can recall them. Overall had a great weekend, can't wait for the next event!
I know this isn't everything, but there's literally no way I can keep everything that happened in my head all at once.
Pre-game, being invited to check out the "speakeasy" and then making fun of Alec for having a "speakeasy" where all the goods are wide out in the open.
Showing up to hook the opener, only to barely have to explain a thing as half the expedition eagerly did my job for me. Glad that briefing worked out.
Muffled from inside the building: "This one is VERY excited" "Is...that a good sign or a bad sign?"
Trying to be nonchalant and sneaky in the dark as [redacted] only to step in a very deep hole around the side of the tavern. Protip: there's a very deep hole in the ground around the side of the tavern guys. Who knew.
"So did you skin one of those Greed drakes?" "No, I just...have armor. This is armor."
The Jellyfish, aka "Whimsy Pancakes". All of it. Fleshing out the idea, building the rigs, those god damn hilarious squishy urchin things, peoples' reactions to them, the fact that all the information about them was right under people's noses...yea, all of it. I love having a bestiary that includes multiple things that behave like actual animals instead of bloodthirsty fight prompts.
Geeking out over some really good Tarot card artwork.
Gigert bouncing around excitedly singing "It's a sword it's a sword it's a sword it's a sword..." while the sword was being cleaned (I was only regaled of this later, but I still love it).
The homunculi test, and people's reactions to the answers, especially between Isaac and Araris. "Wait...now I'm confused."
Casual graduation party.
The catharsis of watching a series of friends that had previously been terrified of what I'm going to go ahead and call the "Wacky Waving Indescribable Nightmares" now getting to play them, thus passing the torch of terror on to a new generation.
Monster camp joking about sending out ghostbusters during the funeral, which we would never actually do, but oh man did we giggle about it a little. "We're here to save you!"
Salvaging a thing we forgot to send out at the pre-hooked time, and doing so in a way that was graceful enough to earn a lofty complement from Jeff.
Mid-picture-taking, realizing that I'd just watched a player die when I wasn't expecting it and having the realization that I was the only one left to go play death.
Dominated Issac explaining how he’s going to attempt to consume his friends - while trying to kill them.
Teaching my adopted boys how to sniff cocaine.
“I like you Verney, but I honestly don’t give a shit what you think.”
Dying as Araris. I couldn’t have asked for a better send off. Dude was a Viking, he HAD to die in battle.
Araris’ last thoughts : “Come monsters, come dance with Araris!” “I’ll never see my Duchess again.”
Me : Oh, I was in the navy”. I think Rashaad or Martin : “Oh? What did you do?” Me : “You know, I was in a very specific branch.” Jaaz : “You were a privateer, weren’t you?” Me : “Yeah, that branch.” Rashaad : “Oh! You were a pirate!” Me : “WHOA WHOA WHOA. That’s ILLEGAL.”
In the Sins fight blowing 14 focus on area disengage.
Light Mod. Them were some hard truths.
I had a bunch, people already beat me to most, I had a fantastic time!

I enjoyed shouting, "I will not lead a town of damn martyrs!" as Ben only twelve hours before Osmund martyred himself. Turns out, Bens' going to lead a town of damn martyrs. Speaking of Ben things, getting to be just hopelessly bewildered and annoyed by all the "King Ben" comments, and then having to explain why Ben wasn't fully aware of what was going on with that was also a lot of fun.
Araris' funeral; for me, it was both a great moment, and a wonderful reminder of how much our community really strives to live their characters; it was bittersweet, sad, funny, and solemn in turn, and it felt like everyone really worked to express that in line with their character. Kudos to all you guys for the wonderful roleplay, and really enhancing the moment.
My magical hobo adventures, and various reactions to that.
Feeling pretty upset that I just lost out on 160 Shares in Gems because stupid Inquisition.
Learning which Order Francis is from, and being super intrigued.
Doing a crap load of in game drugs, nearly killing Issac, being told I have a Theoretical Ritual to do, Doing a said theoretical ritual (intentionally fucking up the amount of intonations for it because I was loaded ) and getting to act like a man off his fucking rocker for 5 mins before passing out over the Ritual circle I had drawn mere hours before.
and at the end hearing Jeff go "Tony, remind me to get you essence for that."
"Captain Cicero Valiente Martigan here..." "Wow you remembered my full name?!"
Some Hard Truths.
Getting Ghouls to Dance.
Shootout in the O.K. Naked Corner.
Screaming for Whiskey as the Whacky Waving Indescribable Nightmares were crawling at Don an I through a Tunnel.
The Araris Death Mod. Just. Wow guys. Everyone Involved. Staff, Players, Mother Nature. Everything was fantastic for that just as a viewer and a PC.
Convincing Gigger to Drink "Rite Place, Wrong Time."
"Normally if I hear a noise in the morning it is Rashaad peeing on the House with Draklings, and while this is not okay, it is more acceptable than Fighting."
