It’s Friday night, and the good news is that the Friday night gaming group is playing this evening.

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

I’m back in pain somewhat today, though it may be somewhat better after the physio session that I had yesterday. And the fact that I’ve not strained myself too much today. With the players all feeling healthy and chipper, I’m thinking tonight will be a good game session. They’re also quite pleased that we’re getting back to some gaming this evening, as this will be the first gaming session since mid-November of last year.

I’m looking forward to this evening’s session of The Dark Eye RPG, let me tell you.

In the meantime, supper (of some form) needs to be made, and eaten. Then gaming.

Have a good night, folks.

Good news!

Heard from the players in the Friday gaming group. Everybody’s healthy again, and the players are ramping up for this evening’s game session.

Looking forward to it.

Wednesday Night Game Report – The Dark Eye Character Creation, Part Two January 18, 2018

Had a good gaming session with the Wednesday night group.

As noted in this previous blog entry, the Wednesday night players were in the process of creating their characters for the The Dark Eye RPG campaign that I plan to run, so we continued the process last night. The thing is, as readers can see from the previous post, the Wednesday nighters started the process off over 2 months ago (back in November, 2017)!

After the players had arrived, we chatted about the week for about 10 minutes or so and when I was ready to get started again, we started off where we’d left off 2 months before. Sort of. Started with a recap of the various character creation sections and went over with the players what they’d done so far to create their characters, hoping to get them into the mindset of the game and their characters once more. Suffice it to say, the players were all pretty pleased with their characters once the evening was wrapped up, and it looks like they’ve got a good group of players. Once we finished dealing with the game mechanics and wrapped up character creation, the players sat back for a bit and chatted about what they saw the character group as being like. Suffice to say, an interesting group of player characters. Here’s what the player created as their characters…

*****
Donna – Donna gave it some thought, but she eventually settled on Nesima Majulasunni, an Aranian thief from Baburin being hunted for a jewel that she stole from an important emir. She’s not sure if he wants her dead or alive.

DavidW – David got tired of playing fighter types, and wanted something different. He settled on Phedro Torrean, a Blessed One of Hesinde from the Horasian Empire, who is seeking knowledge of various sorts (he’s somewhat secretive about this), and is travelling Aventuria for this reason.

Kendall – Kendall broke out of the personal stereotype as well, and created Carisia the Swift, a noble from the Horasian Empire who got bored of her life and became a mercenary. She’s been travelling with Phedro (due to circumstances that will be revealed in play) and has been learning a form of “inner peace” from him, even as she continues to fight and defend for a living.

Crystal – Crystal struggled a bit in her decision of what to play but settled on a good concept. Domela Oakinger is a young woman who escaped her life in Andergast and found she was very good with animals and they liked her. She’s an Animal Tamer now, and finds she likes wandering Aventuria, making money with her skills, and will never go back to her old life.
*****

This session of character creation for The Dark Eye RPG went pretty well, and the players wrapped up their characters for the game. We didn’t get a chance to get into any basics about the rules (once more) or some sample combats, but I was very pleased with their characters. There’s some interesting relationships among the player characters that will be fun to explore, so I’m looking forward to running the game next month.

Getting Ready for Wednesday Night Gaming January 17, 2018

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

Been long enough, hasn’t it? 🙂

I’ve been having a rough time of it lately, what with the cervical spine issues and the pain in the left side of my body, but damn the pain, full gaming ahead! 🙂 Besides, I’ve missed it – and so have my gamer groups!

The Wednesday night gaming group will continue with character creation for the The Dark Eye RPG campaign, which I can hopefully wrap up with them this week.

In addition, I’m hoping that the gaming session will distract me somewhat from the pain I’m in these days.

Oops, there’s the doorbell. Gotta go.

Have a good evening, folks.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Cancelled January 7, 2018

Gaming with the Sunday afternoon group is off for this afternoon once more.

While SteveR is somewhat recovered from the stuff he’s been going through (long story, and still not mine to tell), Tammy is on her first on-call week for work and so won’t be available. I would have liked to play this weekend, even if my back wasn’t willing to cooperate, but such is life.

I am sorry that I’m not going to be able to actually start the The Dark Eye campaign with the first scenario with the Sunday group again, but things are what they are.

Unfortunately, gaming is off for this evening with the Friday night group.

While I don’t feel all that great today in terms of my head, neck, shoulder, back, arm, and hand due to the nerve and muscle issues that I’m dealing with, I had planned on trying to run The Dark Eye RPG this evening. Get the New Year of gaming off to a good start, and all that.

However, the best laid plans are wont to go astray and all that. I spoke to the various gamers over the last couple of days, and all of five of my gamers (including Ellie, unfortunately) are down with bad cases of either flu or cold or both.

So gaming this evening is off. *sigh*

Wednesday Game Schedule Change January 3, 2018

Normally, I would have been scheduled to play tonight with the Wednesday gaming group, but I had heard from Donna late yesterday afternoon that they’ve had a re-think about matters.

The gist of the matter comes down to the fact that while they’re enjoying roleplaying gaming, they would rather play once per month, rather than once every two weeks. Part of this has to do with Real Life(tm) commitments as well as other stuff unconnected to gaming. In conversations with the players the last day or so, the consensus is that the Wednesday night players will game once a month, on the third Wednesday of the month.

While I have to say that I was expecting some sort of change to the Wednesday gaming schedule, since I’ve seen it coming for a while now, I’m happy they decided to continue playing (even if only one session in the month).

So I’m looking forward to the game session on the 17th of January.

Wednesday Gaming on Holiday Season Hiatus December 20, 2017

Gaming is off for this evening, and for the rest of what is left of 2017, as the Wednesday night players do the Christmas and New Year’s things.

There’s a possibility that I might run a one-shot or two during the rest of the holiday season, but that’s not all that likely. Still, one never knows.

Gaming with the Sunday afternoon group is off for this afternoon once more.

SteveR is still recovering from what he’s been going through this past month (long story, and not mine to tell), and while Tammy’s available to play this weekend she’d rather not game without SteveR. This isn’t a bad thing, to be perfectly honest, as my health problems with the pain in the shoulder, arm, hand, neck, and head are still extremely bad, so we won’t be playing this afternoon.

I am sorry that I’m not going to be able to actually start the The Dark Eye campaign with the first scenario with the Sunday group again, but things are what they are.
