    Hmm, it worries me a bit that Dustin repeats the sentence about the vampire game word for word… I mean he seems happy to be there, but that points to a lot of pent up anger, still :/

    “I’m glad they’re looking out for me fullstop” That’s all you had to say, Dustin.

    Likewise, “That’s good to hear fullstop” a few strips ago.

    Granted, I’m probably projecting here because I’ve been on the receiving end of someone being unable to let a past wrong go. But I really don’t like how Dustin keeps bringing up the Vampire game. Especially with Hadeed, who I presume is still playing. If he’s still hurting and needs to vent about it, fine by me, sneaking it into the conversation like that just feels like passive-aggressive sniping.

    It’s time to get Wyrd! And I hope that this time, Sarah’s love life doesn’t distract from the game like it did in Vampire.

    Y’all DO realize that from Dustin’s perspective, it hasn’t been 9 months since the Vampire session, but most likely less than 2? Of COURSE he’s going to go into the session with a nagging voice in the back of his head concerned that things will turn out like that again, and of COURSE he’s going to say what’s on his mind instead of shoving it away and pretending that’s healthy.

    Dustin is still feeling really salty about the Vampire game, and I’m afraid that it will hurt his changeling game if he doesn’t try to let it go and focus on other things. :/

    Dustin was recently confronted with a roommate wanting to move out rather than apologize for calling him a bad sport. How is it any surprise it’s still on his mind? Glad the STs here are smart enough to properly deal with it.

    Kind of surprised at the people saying Dustin should have gotten over the Vamp game or he is being too salty. For the group we have watched over the years gaming is their life and joy and having something like that poor ruling will make anyone upset. I mean from personal experience I had a Shadowrun game where I called out a BS ruling on how part of a run was gonna go according to the GM and things got tense in the group for a month or so.

    @AhegaoAmig

    I’m not saying he should be over it. I easily believe he’s still rankled by how everything went down, especially since he lost a good friend into the bargain. I’m just saying this isn’t the time and the place to repeatedly bring it up.

    @Ducky

    He is probably bringing it up like he is in a weird way of saying, “please for the love of Gygax can we not bring up that mess? I want this to be a fresh start. Everything is fine and Im just putting on this face so people lay off.”
