#RPGaDAY 2016 Day 27

Describe the most unusual circumstance or location in which you have gamed.

A few years ago, my wife had the opportunity to take a short internship far from home. I could take my work with me as long as I had an Internet connection, so for a little more than five months we lived in a barn in central Florida. But the Internet where we lived was not up to par, so we made inquiries and found a business, associated with the internship, who graciously allowed me to use theirs. However, they really only had one place where I could set up in the relative privacy I needed to do what I did without getting in their way.

As such, I found myself gaming online for half a year from a storage closet, sandwiched between a shelf of home-jarred foodstuffs and enough items to cook them should a hurricane take out power for the better part of a month. I have never had an officemate as quiet and as creepy as a jar of meat two feet from my chair, unless you count the garden statue of a royal frog in the same room:

I don’t think anybody knew how it got there. It just was. Sitting there. Staring. All day. Every day of the week. For five months.

Around that time my players toppled a kingdom. Probably coincidence.
