Heard from the Wednesday night players this afternoon.

Gaming for this evening has been cancelled. Three of my four players are down with illness (possibly the flu, but maybe just a bad cold). That said, their GM 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.

Perhaps next week.

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 evening of gaming with the Wednesday night group.

This will be the first time that the Wednesday night players have gamed in some time (since the middle of June, in fact), as they took the summer off. I don’t know what we’ll be playing this evening, but I suspect they’ll want to play a board game of some sort, rather than rpgs, so as to transition back into gaming somewhat. I do know that Donna has expressed an interest in seeing some of The Dark Eye RPG gaming materials, so that will likely happen after gaming tonight.

Looking forward to playing with the Wednesday nighters once again! 🙂

In the meantime, I need to make some supper.

Have a good evening, folks.

Wednesday Night Gaming Off for Summer June 28, 2017

Just thought that I would let folks know that you won’t be seeing any more gaming reports and session blogs for the Wednesday gaming group for the rest of the summer.

The Wednesday night players told me that they would all be taking the summer off gaming, as it’s that time of year when one wants to do other things besides gaming. A couple of the players expressed an interest in possibly doing some board gaming during the summer months, but for the most part Wednesday nights until mid-August or early September will be gaming free.

Such is life.

Wednesday Night Session of Torg: Eternity June 22, 2017

Had a pretty enjoyable game last night with the Wednesday night gaming group.

When the players arrived at my place, we talked for about 10 minutes and caught up with each other about life and how things have been of late. Then the four players, with Donna as their spokespeson, informed me that they were intrigued with the new Torg: Eternity, and wanted to know more about the game and perhaps play a short session of it. I was only too happy to oblige. 🙂

I talked to the players a little about the game, explaining about the game universe (Cosms, Realms, The High Lords, how Reality works in the game and the Axioms, the Torg, and Storm Knights) and then a quick overview of the basic rules. It was enough to intrigue them. The players decided to play, using the Torg: Eternity Free RPG Day quick little adventure. They chose their characters, and then got on with it.

CHARACTERS

Amanda Gray (Donna) – The Quasi-Celebrity
Alan Harper (DavidW) – The Petty Crook
Helen Johanssen (Kendall) – The Jaded Paramedic
Angelica Tarmullen (Crystal) – The Egghead Professor

The player characters started off several hours after the Maelstrom bridge from the Living Land crashed down in New York, and played through the short little adventure that was provided, dealing with Edeinos scouts, rescuing a mother and her daughter from a building that had feral humans wandering through it, and then dealing with another edeinos warband.

Since I still had about forty-five minutes of game time left, I continued on from there, and the player characters had another encounter with edeinos, and managed to acquire some supplies, and a small group of hangers-on who trusted them. A series of terrible decisions awaited them when some of the hangers-on transformed to fit the Living Land, and the players had to kill them before they attacked the other survivors they were protecting.

Overall, it was a fun evening of roleplaying, and I had a good time running the Torg: Eternity Free RPG Day scenario, and adding a bit more to it. The players absolutely *loved* the game, and told me that they can’t wait until they get to play the full game with the Drama Deck, Cosm Deck, and Destiny Deck! I have to say that I’m rather looking forward to running the game again, myself. 🙂

Finished supper, so I’m just getting ready for the evening.

The Wednesday night gaming group will be meeting for the first time in a bit, so I’m rather looking forward to this. Not sure what game we’ll be doing, let alone whether it’ll be a roleplaying game or a board game of some sort. Just really looking forward to getting back to gaming with the group.

In the meantime, I need to wash up the supper dishes.

Have a good evening, folks. 🙂

In the interest of continuity and all that, I just thought I should point out that I will not be gaming with the Wednesday night group this evening.

In addition to not having much of a voice (just call me the Whispering GM!), the allergies, and the asthma going on at the moment, I’ve also contracted a case of con crud it seems. Will be starting an antibiotic tomorrow, and some recommended other stuff, but for now… Bleh.

I was looking forward to getting back to the Wednesday game campaign of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, but such is not to be the case. I guess the Icons are not smiling down on me for the moment. *sigh*

Wednesday Night’s Game Session – Playtesting for CanGames, 2017, Part Four May 11, 2017

Last night, the Wednesday night gamers showed up at my place, and we playtested one of the scenarios that I’ll be running at CanGames 2017 in just over a week.

The players arrived at my place around 6:50 pm or so, and we chatted for around 10 minutes about the past week and Real Life(tm). Once I was ready to game, the players agreed to playtest one of the two Coriolis – The Third Horizon scenarios that I’ll be running at the convention.

Needless to say, I won’t discuss any of the details of the playtest session here, other than to say that the players took on the “Dark Flowers” scenario for the game, and it went pretty well. There were a couple of hairy moments and one instance of a moral choice that tore at the players’ (and their characters’) hearts; when it was over, the players told me those were some of the most emotional choices they’ve faced in an rpg in a while – and that they loved it! I made some notes about a couple of the encounters that the players commented on, and may make some revisions to those before I run the game at CanGames. We’ll see…

So a good playtest of one of the two Coriolis – The Third Horizon adventures I’ll be running at CanGames in just eight (!!) days.

It has been a long, tiring, stressful day for various reasons. Not the least of which is the business that I mentioned vaguely in yesterday’s blog. And no, I’m not going to talk about it.

Came home, took a nap, and woke up feeling pretty good. Spoke to the players of the Wednesday night group, and confirmed that we’re on for gaming this evening. We’re going to be doing some playtesting on another one of the adventures I’ll be running at CanGames 2017, though I’m not sure which one I’m playtesting yet.

This means the Wednesday night regular game of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game campaign won’t be happening tonight.

In the meantime, I need to get to the kitchen and put something on for supper.

Have a good evening, folks. 🙂
