Don't game with lawyers

I'm not talking about rules lawyers; I'm talking about actual attorneys-at-law.

I'm a few adventures into a D&D 3.5 Midnight campaign, and all the other gamers are lawyers at a prominent downtown Chicago law firm. They work hard, often straight through the weekend whilst sleeping on cots in their offices, but they also make almost five times my salary. But it comes at a price.

We've tried repeatedly to schedule our latest adventure, only to have it derailed by depositions, due diligence surveys and unending document analysis. I feel for these guys, because their wives and girlfriends likely aren't getting much better treatment. We'll see if we can get a session in before the next total solar eclipse.
