:::Apologies if this posts twice. LJ is being a dick about crossposting from DW, so I am copy/pasting my original entry:::

I ran eight hours of D&D today, taking a break from landlady craziness and real world responsibilities. My players finally made it out of the cave system they were exploring and went back home, fighting a banshee and a bunch of tree blights on the way. Apart from that one fairly intense combat, it was a role-play-heavy session, which was a nice change of pace. They got to meet some new NPCs, have some downtime, and several of them are coming out of their shells as role-players, which is ncie to see. I need to work on not having my NPC accents waver all over the place.

Next session should be more role-play stuff more than combat, so I'll have to do some more plot and NPC prep for that, which I haven't done in a while. I have to start pulling the mythology of my home-brew world into a semblance of order so that I can start weaving in the overarching plot to their everyday encounters. It will be more work, but I think if I can pull it off it will be super rewarding for all of us.

There's not much else to report on today. I slept super badly because we had several thunderstorms last night, so my sleep was bookended by the dog freaking the hell out next to my bed. He wanted to come up and get comfort cuddles, and the first time he climbed up behind me and lay down exactly in the spot I usuall sleep and refused to budge. I had to physically lift all 85 pounds of him out of the way so I could lie down, but he did get comfort cuddles the way he wanted. Tis morning it was the same thing, except he couldn't get up onto te bed, soI had to get up and lift him up with me. Anyway, it was not super restful. Poor puppy, he really does hate thunderstorms. :(

The goal is to get better sleep tonight, and tomorrow is the first time in months I'll be able to go to Meeting without being responsible for the kids as well. It'll be nice to actually sit in Meeting and be part of the group worship for once.

8 hours sounds like a lot. Is that usual?

It is a lot, though it depends on the game, the DM, the players, and how much free time everyone has. Because I work most weekends we can only play once a month, or sometimes every six weeks, so instead of the more average four-hour session, ours tend to last a bit longer, usually about six hours. The longest we've gone is ten hours, and the shortest I believe was four or five.

When I was in university I was part of a group that played every Saturday, and we'd go for twelve hours or more every time. It was amazing, but only really possible when everyone has a shit ton of free time. We were also in our twenties and had way better stamina. ;)
