As noted in my blog entry on Saturday (see this journal entry), I've been somewhat remiss about posting up the game session notes for the Friday gaming group. So here is the partial amends for that.

Friday night (January 29th), the Friday night gamers got together and continued to play in their Chill 3rd Edition RPG campaign. Here are the game session notes. You can read about the previous session of the campaign in this journal entry. This blog entry is somewhat long, so I've put it behind a cut so that folks who don't want to read any detailed rpg posts don't have to.

Friday, January 29th's game session of the Chill 3rd Edition campaign was a fun one, highly informative, had some good roleplaying between the player characters, and offered a bit of something for everyone (other than combat). Angela commented that they really like the creature that they're dealing with this case (if it's the one they think it is!), and the others commented that it was good to see some plot threads all coming together in the session.

I was looking forward to the next session of the Chill 3rd Edition scenario with the Friday night group, and wasn't disappointed (as you'll see when I post last Friday's game session notes up).

Getting Ready for Sunday Gaming

Getting ready for this afternoon's gaming session with the Sunday players.

This afternoon, Tammy and spross will be creating their player characters for the DragonQuest fantasy RPG of yore that I'm looking forward to running again.

I'll be running the game in the world of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea (sort of) mixed with the world of Alusia (such as it is) that was meant to go along with the DragonQuest game system that never really got developed, so this should be an interesting campaign. :)

While I'm looking forward to character creation for the game again, I'm somewhat dreading how the afternoon will shape up. spross and Tammy don't work together at creating characters with something in common when they go through the character generation process for roleplaying games. Add to that spross's indecisiveness about what type of character to play in games and his never seeming happy with the characters that he's got, and Tammy's single-minded devotion to characters who fit the most obvious aspects of the game world, and... Well, let's just say that I don't know what type of characters to expect from these two. *sigh*

Oh, dear...

I Have Been Remiss Gaming-Wise

Had a lovely time gaming with the Friday night group last night, but I realised something... I've been remiss.

When we started the gaming session of Chill 3rd Edition RPG last night, Kathy asked me where the blog of the game session from the week before was. And I realised... I hadn't posted it up to the LJ here, heck, I hadn't even transcribed the notes! ::sheepish look::

Part of the reason is that I've been doing a lot of work on the DragonQuest RPG and campaign stuff, as well as taking care of a few things for CanGames, 2016, and sort of...forgot to do the work on the transcribing of the notes and all.

Anyway, I'll correct this oversight as soon as I get the chance, so those interested in the gaming sessions can look forward to that. :)

Terrible Night After Gaming

I am so not well.

I realised while eating supper last night before gaming with the Friday gaming group that the spaghetti sauce that I had made for supper was too...spicy. For me, anyway. It tasted pretty good, though, so I ate supper and then got down to gaming last night.

I got to bed around midnight, but... At 2:00 am this morning I woke up screaming, feeling like my lungs were being seared by the acid reflux that I was having. Suffice it to say, I managed to get back to bed and sleep after 5:30 am, and taking about 6 spoons of Gaviscon or so, but I'm not rested this morning.

My chest hurts, my nose is dripping constantly, and there's still a bit of discomfort in my throat. Oh, and my abdomen hurts too (but I attribute that to the flare-up of the bulging disc business). Meh.

I see some naps in my day today, and perhaps I'll take it somewhat easier than I had planned to. Oh, and I think that I have to take certain pasta sauces off my dietary list, among other things. *le sigh*

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

Getting ready for this evening's game session with the Friday night gaming group.

This evening, the players and I will be continuing the Chill 3rd Edition campaign game, and I'm rather looking forward to continuing the scenario/case currently under way.

In the meantime, I need to head upstairs and make some supper before the gamers show up. I think some spaghetti and pasta, with a salad.

Have a good evening, folks.

Happy Birthday spross!

Today is my friend, spross's birthday!

While I'm not at liberty to say how old he is, other than the fact that he's over 40 (he's actually turns 47 years old today), I just want to wish him a very Happy Birthday, with good health and good prosperity for the year ahead.

SteveR's been a pretty good friend to me over the years, especially when I had the science fiction bookstore going here in Ottawa lo those many moons ago, and so I want to thank him for his friendship and support over the years, and the many hours of (mostly) enjoyable gaming and the like we've spent during all this time. (Perhaps one of these days he'll do up a journal entry about how we met and all and our first gaming experience, but for now...)

Happy Birthday, Steve! :)

Books Read in January, 2016

2016. The new year. Another year to see what my reading for the year will be like.

Thus, as is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my January, 2016 reads.

Shelf Life: Fantastic Stories Celebrating Bookstores edited by Greg Ketter

A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley

And thus started my year of reading for 2016. I have to say that I was somewhat pleased at the number of books and other stuff that I read in January, as it seemed to be a slow reading month to start off the new year, though I obviously read more than I expected to. My favourites for the month? The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley was a really good read, and the start of a promising series (as the other two books in the series that I read this past month were lovely). And the short story collection edited by Greg Ketter celebrating bookstores, Shelf Life, was a remarkable anthology, one in which I enjoyed *every* story. Overall, I managed to read 10 novels, 2 RPGs and RPG products, 3 magazines, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels in January. Since this is the start of the year, it brings the year total in 2016 to a set of numbers that look like this: 10 books, 2 RPGs and RPG products, 3 magazines, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)
