I also had to dump a book. Apparently, Bernard Cornwell and his wife (using the nom de plume Susannah Kells) wrote a romance novel called A Crowning Mercy. I tried to give it a chance, I really did, but if a book doesn't give me something back pretty fast, I just can't continue. So, I finally found a Cornwell novel I couldn't stand.
Tonight, Dungeonmaster is having the Guardian of the Flame adventure. Seven audience members have been notified that they have been chosen to work through a very difficult adventure. If they succeed (which isn't very likely) their characters will gain several useful powers for future episodes. Tension. At least two LJ friends of mine were up for it, and one wil be attending. Break a leg!
