    Every time I read the phrase "Gartine Arch", I cannot help but think of some lines from the Leonard Cohen song Hallelujah:

    I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
    But love is not a victory march;
    It's a cold and very broken hallelujah.


    Of course, in my mind's ear, "marble arch" is replaced with "Gartine Arch".

    So now I've got this mental image of ol' Lenny singing about Sagiro's D&D campaign, and it's just... funny as heck, actually.

    There. I feel better, having gotten that off my chest.

    Thanks, now I've got it stuck too. Good song.

    I'm a fan of the hair of the dog treatment for what ails you. If you're going to have a song stuck in your head, it might as well be awesome:

    Here's a bump and a plea for an update.

    I second this bump! Although with Sagiro's commentary in PirateCat's game, maybe there just isn't time any more

    I am very interested in seeing how it all ends...

    Sagiro is being kind enough to make 4e notes about my new campaign.

    Big game last night in Sagiro's campaign! We have just:

    - confronted an army of 10,000 undead
    - found the "skysteel hole" mentioned in Step's dream
    - met our first dracolich
    - had one of our members splatter into unrecognizeable body parts
    - had another one of our members take enough damage to drop them to -86 hit points
    - confront the most powerful member of the Black Circle that we know of
    - come face to face with the Emperor

    Uh huh. It was quite a game. And for those keeping track of such things, it was game #226.
