We finally got to have a “normal” weekend, despite S's dad being in the hospital. Friday night we went to Legion and got comics and gave S his birthday present–the box set of D&D 4e. I haven't seen him grin like that in a long time. Did my heart good; I *do* worry about the boy. Saturday we played in the Mosaic campaign, w00t! Finally got to the Underdark city of Oubliette–a quite nasty place. We spent most of the time figuring out what to do and ran into a mob of insane people. That made for a unique encounter, which is what this campaign is all about. At last we found The Jigsaw, the owner of which is a Venture Captain in the Cartomundi Guild. Mordecai is a bit relieved at the dark press that is Oubliette–maybe the Inquisitor won't be able to follow him here. We did get to level up, so we're all eighth level now!
We took Scott out for his birthday to Yuki Japanese Restaurant that night. On Sunday afternoon we all went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Mostly disappointing, but I went into it only wanting to see Indy again and to have some fun. It fulfilled both counts, but I hate that such an opportunity was wasted by Mr. Spielberg. I didn't go away with that lingering immersive feeling I got from the Star Wars movies (the original trilogy) and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
