I’m in the process of getting ready for gaming with the Sunday group.

I didn’t wake up until about 15 minutes ago, and that only because mom called to see how I’m doing today. I still have this nasty head cold/flu thing going on, but since my voice is relatively intact I’ve decided to game today and both SteveR and Tammy are willing (since the latter will be on-call for work again next week).

The players will hopefully wrap up their The Dark Eye RPG character creation, and we’ll see if we get to do some samples of combat and the like today.

Anyway, gotta get going and shower, and see what else I have to do in the next short while.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Cancelled October 8, 2017

It’s another Sunday morning. The Thanksgiving Sunday, to be precise.

I will not be gaming with the Sunday afternoon gamers today.

Aside from the fact that Tammy is on call this week, I’m feeling somewhat blah, to be honest, having developed a cough that comes and goes, and I’m not sleeping well due to the pain in my left shoulder. More like napping than sleeping. *sigh*

That doesn’t mean I won’t be doing any gaming stuff today, however. I need to create an NPC (who will work with the Sunday players) for The Dark Eye RPG campaign, and I think that SteveR will be coming over to go over the numbers on his Dark Eye character with me, so we’ll see how things go.

Getting ready for this afternoon’s game session with the Sunday players.

The Sunday afternoon gamers will be continuing on with The Dark Eye RPG this afternoon, hopefully wrapping up character creation (that they started last Sunday) and possibly getting into some basic mechanics examples and some sample combats.

I’m looking forward to this afternoon’s session, but at the same time am somewhat intimidated and nervous. (Not sure why.)

In the meantime, lunch needs to be eaten. Then gaming.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

October Is A New Month October 1, 2017

It’s the start of October. A new month.

To be honest, I’m really happy to see the rear end of September.

While there were a few good moments in the month, September was a month that I will remember because of the pain.

The blisters on my feet are still healing, and I expected this to take a while as being diabetic, the healing process is slowed down somewhat. What I wasn’t expecting was the pain that goes along with it, and there have been days where I’ve been in absolute agony trying to walk.

Anyway, here’s hoping that October is a comfortable month, and that winter doesn’t strike too early or too hard at all. ::knock on wood::

I’ll be gaming this afternoon with the Sunday players, as they’ll continue on with character creation for The Dark Eye. In some ways, it’s a pain in the neck, but it’s a very detailed character creation system that has some fun elements to it.

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.

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

To be honest, I wasn’t sure that I’d be able to game today given that my feet are really bothering me today and I’m in a modicum of pain, but I’m hoping the distraction of gaming will make me feel better and allow me to focus on something other than the blisters and cellulitis.

We’ll be continuing on with the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG campaign this afternoon, and I’m rather looking forward to this, as I’m hoping to bring the first scenario for the Sunday group to a close.

Anyway, time to head into the bathroom for another sitz bath, since I’m not yet allowed to shower properly. After that, SteveR will hopefully arrive with some lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

Getting ready for some Sunday afternoon gaming.

I spoke to SteveR and Tammy earlier in the week, and they decided that they wanted to do some roleplaying this week, given that it’s likely we won’t be gaming next Sunday (due to GenCon Indy being the Tuesday after), so I’m pleased about this. We’ll be playing some Coriolis – The Third Horizon today, as I really want to continue the campaign they’re playing and I also need the practice before GenCon.

In the meantime, I’m running a bit late so I need to get upstairs and make some lunch. Turkey sandwich with a side of cole slaw, I think.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

Just spoke to SteveR this morning, and he’s decided that he’s coming out to my place for the afternoon.

We’re not going to do any roleplaying today, but we are going to do some board gaming today. Not sure what yet, but we’ll see when he gets here.

In the meantime, I need to shower. And hopefully work some of the kinks out of my back and shoulder.

Sunday Testing of Torg Eternity Scenario Material July 24, 2017

Spent a relatively good afternoon doing some gaming in relation to the Torg Eternity RPG (yes, there’s no colon between the two words as I’ve been typing it all this time).

SteveR told me that he would come over on Sunday to just “do stuff” (and likely get away from his folks and all), but I didn’t really have a plan about what I wanted to do for the afternoon. He arrived at my place, and talked about seeing a movie, but I compromised and said that I’d like to do a quick playtest of a basic scenario idea I’ve got for an adventure for the Torg Eternity game. He was agreeable to that, so that’s what we did.

Adventures for the Torg Eternity game (and the previous TORG: The Possibility Wars) are divided down into Acts, and then Scenes (but scenes can have other stuff contained within them, and no, I’m not going into this subject here; maybe another blog entry some time). The adventure in question is on Day 1 of the invasion by the various High Lords, and is set at…a zoo. 🙂 I’ve got the basic Act structure and the Scene breakdown for the scenario, but needed to fine tune things a bit.

Anyway, SteveR played one of the characters he’d created with me the week before, and I took the adventure through its paces, making notes here and there about changes that need to be made. Suffice it to say that SteveR had a lot of fun with it, but the Act Two material will need to be somewhat altered from what I’ve got, and there are some minor changes that need to be incorporated into several of the Scenes. The one element that I couldn’t really take into account for the scenario were the Drama, Destiny, and Cosm cards, since I don’t have the Decks as of yet. (I do have the cards in PDF, so have some familiarity with them, and was able to make some notes about using several of the cards in different circumstances and the impact the cards may have on some of the Scenes.)

Overall, it was a really good afternoon of working on some of the kinks in the Torg Eternity scenario that I’m working on. I need to do some re-writing and restructuring of the Act One material first, and then see how the Act Two material shakes out. SteveR seemed to enjoy himself, and I really am finding that I’ve missed running the Torg system in any shape or form. Can’t wait for the new version of the game to come out!
