Heya, new year!
I’m starting to cast about for improvements in life along with my lady - possibly new locations, we’ll see. Bosses know, and appear to not care. I think they’re expecting me to go out searching for a job, realize the economy sucks, and not have to worry about how irritated I am at my current location.
On the game front, looks like Shackled City is wrapping up shortly. That has been one _hell_ of a game. Between solid writing and a skilled Storyteller (I’d say GM, since it’s d20ish, but Storyteller fits better), it’s in the top 3 games I’ve played in.
This does not mean True20 is leaving me, no no. In fact, I’m converting my Keep on the Shadowfell game to True20. My party complained a bit about 4e and its trouble with ad-hoc gaming (It’s a Minimally Multiplayer Offline Role Playing Game. If you can’t push a button to make the effect, it’s pretty much all emotes.), so I persuaded them that a system change wouldn’t suck too much. So far, so good. I’m collecting up the house rules and optional rules that Erich uses (thanks, Erich!) and working towards a gestalt I like. I’m going to be careful, though - I tend to break systems I like by finding untenable warts. I don’t want to break this one, just … mold it.
Listening to numetal angsty brain candy, and the lyrics find no purchase, though I enjoy the sound. Life is good. Thank you, everyone who has made it possible.(crossposted from The Dream Library)
