The Person Next Door

This is Hannah's first short story.  I was planning to have her post it under her own author account on the blog, but I didn't get it set up over the weekend, and now it's too late.

Her assignment was to write a story using the Monomyth structure, which she and her class have been studying all year via the Percy Jackson novels.  I was really pleased with how this came out.  She did a great job with it.

D&D: Campaign and Story Structure via the Lost Mine of Phandelver

After last week's article on the Infernal Captain's Pact, I thought briefly about doing some more work on the Hellknight concept.  It would be fun to play against type.  We could build the Hellknight as an infernal oath for Paladins and perhaps also design that melee Warlock build we discussed last week, either as a Pact of the Glaive or, more likely, as a new entity pact, perhaps the Angelic Pact.

Pics from the Blizzard

I'm sure I'll have more of these as time goes on, but here are a couple I took on the walk to the hotel.

Blizzard Warning

Weekend Round-Up

I know, I know.  I said Mondays were supposed to triathlon posts.

It wasn't much of training week, though.  I ran three times, including on Sunday with Sally, but none of it was particularly outstanding.  It snowed Saturday morning, and I still managed to get out and run Saturday afternoon, so I guess that's something.  It was fun, but it wasn't any kind of record or anything.  I ran, I bopped around to my tunes... That's what I do.
