As I pack for a trip within a trip - a mini-vacation within my vacation - I just keep thinking . . .
"At least I don't have to pack weapons. And ammo. And potions. And trail rations." And all of that other stuff.
Oh sure, changes of clothes and a book and my Japanese study tools. But nothing half as important as the rations and weapons my players are eternally worrying over in my games.
An adventure is like an armed vacation. To a place everyone else wants a vacation from.
