This brings the end of the Date Night arc proper but readers who’ve followed the story so far no doubt realize that this is by no means the end of the story.

Sam has a better handle on the Narrative. Grey apparently has some issues to work through and who knows how that will turn out. Where does the revelation of the previous comic leave Mel and Grey’s relationship? Where does Sam go from here? Is it possible that Brett and Jeanie have what it takes to make a relationship work? Some of these story points are things I do not want to resolve in a series of three, 3-panel comics and call it a day. I am enjoying long-form storytelling (as I have mentioned before) and it seems like most of you guys enjoy it as well, but it is just that: Long form

I am juggling out-of-game interactions and relationships with in-game hijinks, all of which are all a part of any gaming group who has played together for a while. It’s a lot of fun but I will be honest with you here, I think it is time to get back to the table and roll some dice with the group. I miss Charlie.

With Sam getting his head back on straight, I see him being ready to slide behind the screen and resume their campaign and as much as I would LOVE to have the group enrolled in the D&D Next playtesting process, of course I cannot do that or even fake it. I’ve seen Trevor Kidd’s Twitter feed. Folks are ravenous for any information on the new game and even if I had the foundations of my fake, in-comic system based on coin flips, someone would run with it. Mark my words.

I’ll see you on Monday!
