D&D night!
An evening of battling bandits was had today! Now it wasn't really a battle but really more like a massacre. I'm not saying our band of roving adventurers was any stronger than those nasty bandits (who were trying to open the gate to the city and let in an awful lot of badness), but when you're hardly missing any of your attacks and the someone crits 2 rolls in a row, well lets just say those bandits didn't last too long :) Elspeth was in fine form dealing a good amount of damage and being a great controller (proning and immobilizing all in one go!) . After the encounter of last week we deserved a great fight and this was it!

Downside of the day?: wore my PAXEAST 2011 shirt all day and no one said anything :( oh well! I felt awesome regardless!

A double batch is better!

After seeing some of my friends make a foray into the world of blogging. I've decided to take a crack at it myself! Am i interesting? who knows! I guess a place where I can jot down my thoughts and what I'm up to in the world my geek-dom can't be all that bad.

So here's the thing, I'm a self-proclaimed geek girl. Now I wasn't always as 'geeky' as I am now, my lovely fiance has introduced me to the amazing world of such things as: D&D, video games, movies, etc etc etc and I have never looked back!

I would say my biggest initiation into geekdom would be PAXEAST 2011 (yes I'm new at all this!). PAX was amazing and tons of fun, if you don't know what PAX is check it out here . Seeing and meeting so many people into the same things I am was a feeling I can't describe! This is also where I received my first introduction into the world of D&D, a game that I now play on a weekly basis with a great group of guys!

I fill my days with a variety of geeky things. lately is has been the art of Mini painting! I'm happy to say that I have completed 3 minis and they just keep getting better (well in my opinion). Here are 2 of the ones I have done so far in order of completion: Enna & Elspeth

The other thing I'm into lately, that may not be considered geeky but I think it is, is baking! Tonight I'm baking some chocolate chip cookies for a bake sale being held at work tomorrow to raise money for the Dragon Boat Race i'm going to be in soon! Decided to take a few pics of the in process & completed workings of the yummy goodness that are cookies! I decided at the last minute to make a double batch because more cookies are just better!

Now I wish I could share with everyone, but you'll have to come to Montreal for that (or if you are here, to my work/house)!

Anyways, that's it for my geekyness today! Until tomorrow where I shall blog about the exploits of Elspeth and her band of roaming adventurers in the world of the Forgotten Realms!
