Good... Bad... Weird... It All Showed Up...

Last night was a combination of good, bad, and weird.

The Good... KnightErrantJR's DC Adventures game was a blast. even if we got nothing really accomplished, we had a good time doing it. It's a good game, with a good group, run by a great GM. You can't really ask for more.

The Weird... When Skribl, I, and Osmosis left the store last night we noticed an odd car in the parking lot with someone in it. We sort of stare at the odd car as we get into ours, and as we are doing so, the headlights from the odd car flash at us... twice. We get a weird vibe, but we get in the car and drive off.

The Bad... We drop Osmosis at home, but the thing with the strange car is still sitting oddly with me. So, Skribl and I go back to the store. The odd car is still there, but it's moved a bit closer to the store. I parked the car in front of the store to go in to get something I "forgot", leaving Skribl in the car. As I am coming back out, I see that the odd car has closed the gap between itself and my car to less than 20 feet, with their headlights off. I lock the store get in our car, start it and leave. The headlights of the odd car turn on, and it begins to follow us. I quickly head to a nearby gas station for a couple of reasons. One, to get gas. The tank was near empty, and if I'm going to be followed by a strange car, the last thing I want to do is run out of fuel. The second reason was that the gas station was a brightly lit PUBLIC place. Skribl and I watched as the car continued past us as we got gasoline, but neither one of us was really relieved.

As we were leaving the parking lot, I had Skribl call the police. The officer met us at the gas station, and spoke to us for a bit. Both us and the officer then went back to the parking lot/store and looked around, but found nothing.

Part of me wants to think that I was being overly paranoid, and that what went on last night with the other car was pure coincidence. My gut tells me otherwise, though, and that means my paranoia level will upratchet for a bit...

Stay safe, all...

  1. Again. Wasn't me. Really.

    (I hope all is well!)

  2. I know it wasn't you, sir. =P

    I used to be really cautious at the old store, but I know I've gotten complacent at this location. Time to crank up the awareness once again...

  3. If playing a lot of Warhammer 40k games has taught me anything, its that there's nothing wrong with a bit of paranoia. In fact, I'd say its fairly healthy. After all, it gives you an initiative bonus.
