As most folks know, today is Mother’s Day.

Due to various things going on for Mother’s Day in Tammy life, the Sunday gaming group will not be playing today.

I had been looking forward to playtesting “The Dixmude Affair” for the Primeval RPG that I’ll be running at CanGames in one week, but alas and alack, that will not happen today.

So I’m going to spend some time today doing Mother’s Day things, some reading, maybe watching some DVD and/or PVR stuff, and just having a nice quiet Sunday. Oh, and browsing through the initial schedule for GenCon 50 that will go on-line in just over half an hour.

It’s April 19th, and do you know what that means?

If you’re in the Ottawa area, and planning to attend the game convention, CanGames 2017 is exactly one month away!

Eeek! 🙂

So I thought I’d re-post up a listing of the game sessions I’ll be running at CanGames this year.

*****
The Statuette of Zhar Bagra
Game: Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG
Time: Friday, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While on Coriolis Station, your player characters are asked by a scholar to help him retrieve an artefact that needs to be returned to the planet Kua, below. Why do so many people want the artefact, and what sort of intrigue have you got yourselves into this time? Try out this new, unique science fiction rpg that is basically “Arabian Nights in space”. Crew a starship and explore the ancient mysteries of The Third Horizon!

The Dixmude Affair
Game: Primeval RPG
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: After returning to the present through an Anomaly to find the timeline terribly wrong, you and the other player characters learn that history changed in 1923 with the fate of the airship Dixmude being altered. Can you fix the timeline, or is it too late?

Dark Flowers
Game: Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm – 6 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While passing through the Dabaran system on a routine trade mission, your characters are contacted by The Foundation, and asked to proceed to a set of coordinates and investigate the disappearance of a missing ship carrying one of its researchers, a professor Siyab Dahiljaba. What will you find? Try out this new, unique science fiction rpg that is basically “Arabian Nights in space”. Crew a starship and explore the ancient mysteries of The Third Horizon!
*****

There are still plenty of spots for folks to play in both the Friday evening and Sunday afternoon sessions of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, and the Saturday afternoon session of Primeval, so I hope to see some of you at the convention and playing in these games. And even if you’re not playing in my games, come and see me and say “Hi!” at this year’s CanGames.

Like I said, one month away! Hooray! 🙂

A Long Week Ahead February 6, 2017

It promises to be a long, somewhat unenjoyable week.

I’m going sometime later this morning for my three-month blood tests before my endo appointment next week at the Diabetes Clinic. The fasting for the blood work always kills me, because it throws my metabolism off and really wreaks havoc on my bowels for the next couple of days.

On Tuesday, I have my annual eye check-up, and I’m a little bit concerned as I feel my vision has changed notably in my left eye. The eye appointment is a pain in the neck, as to be honest the fluids they put in my eyes (notably the eye dilator) takes a good 6 hours to dissipate for me, and my vision becomes blurry and suffers from “too bright” symptoms for that period. Not to mention the headaches I get from it. To add to the misery, the annual eye appointments are always before 10:30 am in the morning, and I sometimes don’t get to eat breakfast before that appointment. So I’ll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow in that regard.

Given that I’ve been somewhat ill with either a cold, a virus, or some sort of flu the last week or two, this does not make things easier for the week. And I’ve not been feeling myself lately, to be honest about it.

And to add to the week, I have a decision or three to make about GenCon Indy come the end of the week.

can’t make that appointment

Gaming Promise to Myself for 2017 January 9, 2017

One of the things I’ve promised myself for 2017 is to play rpgs more, rather than GM them.

Don’t get me wrong, I love GMing, and am looking forward to some of the games that I’ll be running in 2017, but I just want to be a player more this year than I have in the last 10 years or so. Playing gives me a rest from doing all the creating of gaming stuff entailed with running games and it allows me to re-energize the gaming creativity juices that running the games drain away, slowly but surely. The real plus about playing, however, is that it allows one to experience games from the other side of the GM Screen, and get a bit of perspective about running games and the players that one (usually) plays with.

I’m off to a good start this year, currently playing in DavidM’s Sixcess Core fantasy game and SteveR‘s Thousand Suns science fiction game, but I’m hoping to play in a few other games in the gaming groups this year, and that I’ll play in stuff at both CanGames 2017 and at GenCon 50.

While I’m currently running the Continuum game with the Wednesday gaming group, the playing in the other two games has given me something of a break in terms of running and creating. It’s quite…tiring, at times, to run stuff on the three gaming groups as I usually do, so this is an interesting break period of sorts.
