Ok now you’re waiting for some explainations, first of all – I apologize since this blog is mainly (90%) in english and I have the strong feeling more people are able to understand what I write here, when I do it in english, I’ll carry on with this… Project Hannes was started by Voodoosheep, who sent his dear friend Hannes, the sheep onto a journey to find the center of the blogosphere. Since my dear girlfriend Jinxx, headmistress of the Vienna Writer Blog volunteered to offer a nice place to stay to Hannes, I accepted her proposal to show him a bit of my world. You should understand that we’re quite different in some of our areas of interest. So when we returned yesterday evening (that’s a lie, it was morning – honestly!) after a night at the ball… it was an easy decision to show the sheep something different. Something of my very personal world – something from a roleplaying player’s part of this world ;-).
We started introducing all players to Hannes. Traditionally we always had the company of Loki (aka Heavy Metal Sheep aka Black Sheep of Doom) at most of our roleplaying sessions, but lately Lori and Loki were absent and since Hannes had enjoyed the company of James the skunk after yesterday’s drinking night at the ball, both decided to join us for the roleplaying round. The big asian game-master dragon was also close-by and after a first small misunderstanding, in which the asian dragon mistook Hannes for his lunch, it looked finally like we were ready to start (without anyone missing) and – ye we did have a very nice afternoon.
Hannes started a bit directly to mess around with Jenny, not very gentleman like but I think she captivated him quite easily and both of them shared many good laughs in the afternoon to come. The same was true for Beatrix, Roman and Thomas (this afternoon’s dungeon master) who shared insights and smiles. Hannes and James both were faszinated by the tabletop-approach of our first fantasy-battle, which was accompanied by a wild story in the world of Faerun, where close to the mysterious forest of Cormanthor our newly founded party was surprised by an earthquake (it was honestly a thrilling, entrailing story told by Thomas) which cracked the earth open and freed several dwarven zombies which fought long and hard against the sound and friendly guys of “Klauental” (Clawdale). Both Hannes and James helped us a great deal in keeping track of the battle and tried to improve our general battle-experience. You have no idea how happy I was, that none of our mages ever thought about using the infamous Stinking Cloud tonight.
After a long and hard battle we needed a short break, Hannes was happily emptying my tea, which had a few refills over the hours and then the sheep helped preparing a delightful Lasagne succeeded by delicious noisette-chocolate cake and while James the skunk was sound asleep and most of the human players of tonight were still occupied with the game, Hannes had emptied 7/8th of the Lasagne – only to savagely enjoy the cake afterwards.
This was followed by another thrilling battle until Hannes and James both decided it to be enough for tonight. We had our final talk at around 21:00 and decided to continue next week. We all wanted to thank Hannes for sharing the delightful afternoon with us and hope the small adventurous trip into a fantasy world was new and exciting for him.
From what Hannes told me before he finally dropped into a sound sleep tonight is, he will stay for another two days here in Korneuburg and is looking very much forward to learn to know more bloggers from the surrounding area. So I’ll keep you up to date and will post some more exciting stories with Hannes in the two days to come.
