Gaming for tonight is off.

I’ve been having a good degree of lower abdominal pain on my left side, and other stuff is going on as well down below.

Kathy and the others understood my need for not gaming tonight, but she also told me that a couple of the Friday nighters aren’t all that well at the moment (colds?), so it was a good thing we’re not gaming this evening.

In the meantime, just going to try and take it easy for the rest of the day. Hope the problem goes away on its own.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, gaming for this evening with the Friday night group has been cancelled.

Hopefully, things can get back on track next week.

Gaming for this evening with the Friday night crew is off, as most of them are dealing one way or another with Easter weekend stuff.

Hope that I’ll get back to doing some playing through and testing of the material for one of the games that I’ll be running at CanGames the third week of May.

In the meantime, a quiet Friday night(I hope).

It’s Good Friday. The start of the Easter weekend for most folks.

I woke up this morning feeling somewhat under the weather, not really sick, but very tired and hurting pretty badly in the shoulder and back area. Nothing new there. Tossed and turned somewhat last night.

The weather is overcast with some rain, but is in the plus degrees Celsius, so that’s a positive. I’m still recovering from the shopping session that I did a couple of days ago, so I’ll see how I feel the rest of the day.

Spoke to the players from the Friday night group last night and this morning, and they have all decided that we’ll be playing this evening. The group will continue to play test/through one of the games that I’m running at CanGames 2018 this May.

I’ve spent the latter part of the afternoon doing some preparation work for gaming tonight, as I’m planning to run the players through the Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked adventure that I’ll be running at the convention. Quite looking forward to it, especially to seeing what the players think of this set of game mechanics.

In the meantime, I need to make some supper, and then get to the gaming.

Have a good evening, folks.

It’s Friday night. Hoooray! 🙂

Getting ready for another evening of gaming with the Friday night gaming group. While I’m feeling somewhat under the weather (bit of a cough and I think I’m losing my voice), the Friday gamers want to play this evening. I’m going to be doing some more playtesting of the games that I’ll be running at CanGames 2018 this year.

I’m still coming to grips with some of the game mechanics for the system, so we’ll be doing another session of the Torg Eternity RPG again this evening. It’s not really playtesting, since I’m not running through the scenario(s) that I’ll be running at the convention in just over two months (eek!), so much as getting a feel for the game system and the mechanics that this new version of the game has slightly tweaked. In any event, I’m quite looking forward to it. 🙂

Have a good night, folks.

It’s Friday night, and there’s good news.

Given the tumultuous stuff that occurred several weeks ago and the stuff that’s happened since, the fate of the Friday night gaming group has been in doubt.

However, the Friday night players and I talked about things the last couple of days, and the players have decided to to game this evening. Despite the fact that it’s been snowing and whatever other weather precipitation has been coming down today, we’re going to game this evening. Rather than get back to playing the campaign game at the moment, the gaming group and I will be doing some of the playtesting of the games for me that I’ll be running at CanGames 2018 this year.

I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night players, and am really looking forward to it. We’ll be playtesting some

Friday Gaming Session, Sort of March 2, 2018

I’m gaming tonight, sort of.

The Friday gaming group is taking some time off to deal with the death of DavidM, but I spoke to Kathy today and she said that she and Ellie would like to come over this evening and do some gaming. Ellie needs a distraction from DavidM’s death, and gaming is a good “therapy” for all concerned.

Since I know that Ellie’s been jonesing to play some Torg Eternity RPG, that’s what we’ll probably do a bit of this evening. I’ve got a couple of scenario basics that I want to test out and see whether the premises that I’ve come up with work, but we’ll see what happens tonight.

In any event, I’m looking forward to seeing them, and hopefully doing some gaming with them this evening.

In the aftermath of the events of yesterday (see the blog entry about that, and no I’m not linking to it as the memory is too painful just now), I will not be gaming with the Friday gaming group this evening.

We’re all in a state of shock still somewhat, not to mention somewhat depressed and feeling down about the matter. I’m not sure when we’ll get back to gaming, or even if we’ll get back to gaming for that matter, but for now just… No.

That’s all I’ve got to say for this evening, folks.

A Death in the (Gaming) Family February 15, 2018

It has been a very difficult day for me today, as well as for the Friday night gaming group.

When I woke up this morning, I learned from Stephanie, DavidM’s wife, that DavidM had died at 3:45 am this morning of congestive heart failure as a complication/consequence of his having a very severe case of the flu that’s going around. David had been ill for over two weeks now, and had progressively got worse to the point where he’d been admitted to the hospital a week ago today. I’m saddened by his loss, and can’t even begin to imagine or feel how his wife and family are right now.

I’ve been sort of dysfunctional for most of the day, in a state of shock for the most part (I guess), and haven’t really accomplished anything at all today other than a bit of banking and grocery shopping I needed to get done.

I’d been gaming with DavidM for several years now, and had come to really like him. His personality was sparkling, he loved his wife and two children, ages 14 and 19, fiercely, and enjoyed what he did for a living. His loss leaves a terrible void in the lives of both his family and his friends, and I still can’t believe he’s gone.

A tragedy. A horrible day for all concerned.
