The second package from Fria Ligan/Free League Publishing that I was expecting by courier arrived yesterday afternoon. It would have been delivered on Friday, but I had grocery shopping and errands to do, and since I was going to have to pay for it as well, the package came by courier yesterday (Monday).

Anyway, the package came yesterday. Once again, I was annoyed that I had to pay a processing fee and a transaction fee on the package due to the shipper’s…incompetence, though it may have been due to the current situation with Canada Post and their need to make some money right now. Still, not cool. This package contained the the first part of the epic campaign for the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG, Emissary Lost. Looks brilliant!

There is a ton of goodness for the first part of the campaign, as you can see in the photo, and the books are the lovely, beautiful things one expects of the folks at Fria Ligan in this game line. Fabulous stuff!

Can’t wait to get back to the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game during 2019 and hopefully run this epic adventure (and its second and possibly third parts).

Day 21 – Which dice mechanic appeals to you?

There are two dice mechanics that appeal to me these days. I rather like d6 dice pool systems to be honest, as they’re easy to deal with and require just some basic math (which keeps the mind sharp). The two systems I’m think of at the moment are the ones found in the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG and the Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG. What’s neat about both of these games is the tweaks and sub-systems that are added on to the basic d6 mechanic as both optional and non-optional rules.

The second mechanic set that I really like is the d20 and 2d20 mechanics for the Torg Eternity and John Carter of Mars – The Roleplaying Game systems, respectively. Both of the systems use a very basic mechanic using the 20-sided die, but again add sub-systems that really make the two games shine.

That’s my answer for today.

Day 17 – Describe the best compliment you’ve had while gaming.

While (some) of my players over the years have praised the game I’ve run that session or have said how much they enjoyed themselves, the best compliment I got was for a session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG about two years (iirc) ago. We wrapped up the session for the night, and I told them what time it was, and the player said, “By the Icons, but I’ve lost track of time. I got totally immersed in the jungles of Kua for the last four hours!” Best compliment I’ve ever had. 🙂

RPGaDay in August – August 15th: A Tricky RPG Experience You Enjoyed August 15, 2018

Day 15 – Describe a tricky RPG experience that you enjoyed.

Another one that’s no so easy…

If there is one of these that I’ve enjoyed the last few years, it had to be running a session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG. Specifically running “The Dying Ship” scenario for the game that has some interesting challenges to it. And no, I’m not going to get specific here, because I don’t want to spoil the adventure for anyone running or playing it!

In the past, I’d say the trickiest experience I had was running a session of the Universe SF RPG from the folks at the now defunct SPI gaming company. The player characters had a ship called the Lucky Lucy and were fleeing an enemy vessel through an asteroid belt. It was tricky for me because the players insisted I do all the math for the vectors and the like for them, and I was also doing the math for the enemy vessel as well!

I loved every minute of both experiences, but oy vey! what a headache I had after that week’s session was done! 🙂

Getting Ready for Wednesday Night Gaming November 1, 2017

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night gaming group.

It has been some time since the Wednesday night gamers have played an rpg game session, so I’m rather pleased that the players will be playing a game this evening. With any luck at all, I’ll be trying to wrap up the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game scenario that the players are currently involved with.

Still not feeling overly healthy myself, and the cough is very much present, but the players want to play (despite my illness) so how could I say no?

In any event, I need to grab some supper from upstairs and get to it.

Have a good evening, folks.

Wednesday Night Gaming Cancelled October 18, 2017

Spoke to the Wednesday night gamers earlier, and sad news.

Gaming for this evening has been cancelled. Two of my four players are (still) down with illness (possibly the flu, but maybe just a bad cold). The two other players decided that they didn’t want to play without the missing players. That said, their GM still isn’t feeling all that good at the moment, either.

I was looking forward to gaming this evening with the Wednesday night crew, as I was thinking we might bring the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game to a conclusion for now, but I guess such is not to be once more.

It has been somewhat of a difficult day for me. My feet are hurting pretty badly, and my shoulder has been so bad that I’ve tried to use some Voltaren gel on it to ease the pain somewhat. Doesn’t seem to be helping, but that’s the story of my life.

As mentioned earlier today, the Wednesday gaming group is playing this evening, and I couldn’t be more happier. They’ll be continuing on with their game of Coriolis – The Third Horizon this evening, and I’m looking forward to running that this evening.

For now, supper awaits.

Have a good evening, folks. 🙂

Heard from Donna this morning.

(It was nice chatting with her, as we’ve not spoken for a while now, though I did see her when we board gamed right after I got back from GenCon Indy.)

The good news is that the Wednesday night players are looking forward to gaming this evening. We’ll be continuing on with the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game that the players and their characters were involved in, and they want to finish up the scenario before turning to a fantasy system for a bit.

Looking forward to this evening.

Getting ready for an afternoon of gaming with the Sunday gaming group.

Now that SteveR and Tammy have wrapped up the scenario for Coriolis – The Third Horizon that they were playing in, it’s time to get in some fantasy roleplaying (as I’ve not run some fantasy for a while now). The Sunday players will be starting in on The Dark Eye RPG this afternoon, and will obviously begin with the character creation process. I’m quite looking forward to this, to be honest! 🙂

In the meantime, I need to hobble upstairs and get some lunch made.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

Getting ready for an afternoon of gaming with the Sunday gaming group.

My feet are bothering me pretty badly, a lot of pain in the left foot where the blisters haven’t broken (but I feel like I’m walking on a small pocket of fluid or whatever), and my left shoulder is bothering me a lot. Here’s hoping the gaming will distract me from the pain that’s going on and focus on something else (i.e., the gaming).

The Sunday gamers and I will be wrapping up the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG scenario that they’re doing for the moment, and if time permits we’re going to start in on stuff for the The Dark Eye campaign that I’m planning to run, though probably won’t get to character creation until next weekend.

Meanwhile, it’s time to head into the shower, and then hobble upstairs to make some lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks.
