…an Ed Wood film
I have had, for the past couple of weeks, a pinched nerve or something in my neck. The left side of my neck will start hurting and that will lead to a headachce and that will make Doc a cranky and unmotivated boy. Which is a long way of saying that, altho I did stuff today, I could not get motivated to do much garden stuff. Hopefully, after my wrist operation on Wednesday, I’ll have some good pain meds which will allow my a bit of headache free one handed gardening time.
A more permanent cure for my neck problems will have to wait until I can afford to go see our really swell, but not covered by our medical plan, chiropractor.
Game Day Report
We started the Modern Weird Shit RPG series today and things went well. Our cast of PCs include…
An NSA technology expert who has Spider Sense
A very Scullyesque FBI forensics expert who can do Jedi Mind Tricks
A somewhat Mulderlike scientist from the Smithsonian who can do a Vulcan Mind Meld
The CIA’s top field agent/assassin who has the Power To Cloud The Mind
At their first briefing, they were told that strange things were happening all around the world and especially right here in North America. Some of these things included…
The entire 500 person population of a small Arkansas town vanishing for a week, then returning sans memories of where they had been.
A real, no shit encounter with a dragon in Northern California, complete with photographic evidence.
The appearance of roughly 300 small and very helpful robots in a town in Alberta, Canada.
Real live garden gnomes in Amarillo, Texas.
A US Navy jet fighter taking off from Miramar NAS and, 5 minutes later, appearing in the skies over Maine.
They were then given their first assignment: Go to Big Pine, California and find out why all the female residents over 5 years old were building something strange…using skills they had not possessed the day before.
To make a long story short, they found that the women had been mind controlled by an alien intelligence to build a launching station for a high speed jet aircraft that would spread a mutagenic compound (that the women had also created) across an area from Phoenix, Arizona to the West Coast.
The Plot was finally foiled by the FBI agent who Mind Ticked a female Navy Seal into putting some C-4 into the aircraft just before launch.
In the end, very little evidence of an alien nature was collected, with the exception being some bits of a mutated black bear that got blowed up real good.
The popular theory is that all the Weird Shit is happening due to somebody opening up portals between dimensions. In two weeks, the PC’s will get to investigate another happening that may or may not advance this theory.
After the game, Daisy and I took a nice 1.75 mile walk.
Now, I’m gonna eat some lasagna and then maybe write an A&E zine.
