Sliding towards insanity

Getting toward the end of the semester, everybody's assigning last minute work, up to my shoulders in shitwork, blah blah blah. Nothing new, happens every year, time to more on.

I started my new D&D 3.5 game last Sunday. Entirely based on Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil, with 3/4 players being entirely new. New miniatures, new dice, new books; all sorts of goodies. Only problem is that right now, going into the second session (Friday), I still don't have the adventure. It was sitting on the shelf at Waldenbooks in Frederick for literally years; I saw it the week before. Went to pick it up last weekend, and it's gone. I checked damn near every book store, comic store, and game store in a 40 mile radius, and nobody's got it. I got one hit through eBay, did a buy it now, and paid, but I haven't heard jack from the guy. Rereading the ad, sounds like he was just selling it from a distributor, and since it's out of print I'm guessing that's SOL as well. Still absolutely no word from him though, even about getting my money back. Right now, I'm working off the photocopied first chapter, and trying as hard as I can to get a real copy. GRRR....

Anyway, first game went off to a good start. Should be good, and we're hoping to play both over the summer, and into next year. I'd normally actually expend some effort working out a detailed campaign, with a plot and everything, but it seems like the group mostly wanted to slay, grab treasure, heal, and repeat, so there wasn't much point. Perfect demographic for a canned adventure; a DM with no time, and players that don't care.
