Minor Trickster (Lvl 4)
(IR) IR Interlude between Turn 1 and Turn 2
I must delay the onset of Turn 2 of the IR for 24 hours, starting a 5 in the afternoon my time (17:00 hours eastern time, United States of America).
I have eyestrain severe enough my vision is blurred, and I cannot clear it.
Not even with 12 hours of rest.
I have 40 e-mails to read.
I have 15 pages of correspondence to read, and arbitrate.
Then, and only then, can I properly begin Turn 2.
I must be present for Turn 2, must be at the computer the entire time, or most of the time (I was present the entire 5 hours of Turn 1.)
Although I have the stamina and energy to do this, my eyes apparently are another matter, and if I do not rest them, I will have eye trouble, and then we really will have a delay in the IR.

You have asked: who sent the mountain down?
The player whose strategy was to employ the mountain tactic had a sound plan, and his posts and e-mails were not flawed.
He did everything right.
His plan should have worked perfectly.
I'M the one who arbitrated that things went awry, and the mountain came in faster than expected, and hit slightly off target.
If you must blame someone, blame ME.
Do not rile the player whose strategy this was; if you do, I will have publicly embarrassed him, and he will quit the IR.
I should know.
For a DM pulled that stunt on me, and in that case it WAS meant to publicly embarrass me, and afterwards it was used against me in an act of viciousness.
And it wrecked the group and the game for me.
I do not pull that kind of crap.
My arbitrations are not meant to hurt or humiliate anyone.
My arbitrations are just me - and sometimes, they are just plain silly.
Bear with me, and let us continue this IR, and have some fun.
