Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

Recommended Posts

Woooo first D&D session today! 

 

My crew just roleplayed around town, gathering clues about the world and each other. Sir Cyr was discovered to be a rat in a mech suit (instead of a true warforged). 

 

Next time they are going into the dungeon.

I forgot they were cleaning the rooves and gutters today. I was supposed to move my car. Somehow, from the comfort of my bed, I don't care if my car gets covered in stuff.

Well, my car didn't get much of anything on it. Just pine needles. But that would easily have been from the trees. So I guess the fuss was overrated.

I went to see Aquaman last night (yes, I know you've all probably already seen it), and it was a fun time.

 

My local theater has started using assigned seating, though. I'm not a fan.

At all.

 

You have to pick your seats from a computer chart when you purchase the ticket. Sorry, no. I prefer to wander into the theater and sit wherever I want to based upon firsthand observation of who's already there.For example, I prefer not to sit near people with small children, 'cause that could equal noise and/or numerous potty breaks. If it's possible, I prefer a one seat buffer between me and the person next to me if we're not there together.

 

Not a fan at all.

Good news!  I slept!  Bad news!  I have a fever now.  So I'm going to take some ibuprofen for my neck and head back to bed.

I have run into this also. 

It is an exceedingly bad, infuriating idea

For all the reasons you state. And others.

Same here, for the same reasons.

 

And even more annoying, walk up ticket sales seem to have less of a selection than buying online does. Several times they've shown us seating charts that only have seats available in the front of the theater, but the theater is only half full at best when you take a potty break halfway through the movie.

 

One of these days I'm going to login online while standing at the counter, and call them out on it.

I prefer reserved seating to be honest, I had noticed in my time in the USA that this doesn't seem to be standard- in the UK it is pretty standard to expect to select your seats when booking tickets for cinema. At my local cinema I always try to book central seats for best view of the screen and to book online to try and ensure the "one seat gap" you mentioned. OH and I also try and go to later screenings wherever possible to avoid kiddos- but I get that's not for everyone- and has it's own problems, our local cinema has a licence and drunk people need to pee just as much as kids! So we also try to go midweek as that helps avoid there being anyone who's had a bit too much to drink.

Movie Theatres: First come; first seated....it’s the American way. 

 

Just because it works for airplanes and opera houses doesn’t mean it’s a good idea anywhere.

Big fan of the assigned seats. When they switched over, I wasn't, but it's grown on me. No more rushing to get there a half hour before just to have the slim hope that maybe there's a good seat. No more splitting up the family since there's only two seats at one end and then two seats at the other corner of the theater.  We're able to buy the tickets online and will pick a time where we get good seats.

 

And the adults around here seem to be noisier than the kids. Shouting, talking to their friend, and even talking on the phone! Sheesh!

 

It's a reason I won't fly Southwest if I can help it. The mad rush to check in, then hope and pray there's a decent seat. Nope! I like to know where I'll be, and get a good seat over the wing box structure.

Hubby hates having people sit behind him, so the assigned seating works for us. We usually pick the early bird showing anyway, so there's not usually that many folks there. 

 

One thing about the assigned seats shown available may simply be that people aren't showing up. Like, they buy the tickets, then forget about the movie.

For myself it's fine, but it's a hassle for teens, I think.  One extra thing to coordinate if they actually want to sit together.

I ran the kids game last night - party still split. Kind of getting used to running the game this way.

 

The first group has been captured by the Lantern Folk - but did a good job of defending Crepescule - they now know that, yes, he is undead, and no, he is not his own master.

 

Their defense of him amounted to - do you want his master coming here?

 

They have agreed to escort him to the exit of the dungeon by the quickest means possible (And were at the exit when we left them for the night.)

 

I let Iain play the Lantern Folk inquisitor leading the trial, with other of the players with no characters present playing the judge, the bailiffs, and etc..

 

The other group, meanwhile, is going deeper into the dungeon.... <_< Killing goblins, rats, spiders, and undead - and stealing their treasure.... (Go figure - about half the party wanted to go on an old fashioned dungeon crawl.)

 

The first group is getting passage to Freeport, we will see if the dungeon crawl party can catch them up.

 

The Auld Grump - in some ways the party splitting is making it easier - there are a lot of kids.

Sam got to listen in on part of her father's game on Tuesday - on Wednesday she told me she wants me in her game because I am 'hilarious!'....

 

Okay, so maybe Gervaise is a little over the top....

 

The Auld Grump - and maybe taken a little bit from Lancelot in the movie version of Camelot....
