Games I'll Be Running at CanGames, 2018

For those who are interested, the early(bird) version of the gaming schedule for this year's CanGames, to be held May 18th - 20th at the Rideau Curling Club here in Ottawa, has been posted up to the website. (You can find the schedule here, as they're using the on-line schedule manager Sched once again this year.) Note that early Registration for CanGames 2018 is due to open on February 24th, so that's a good thing.

Now that they've been confirmed, without further ado, here's the schedule of games that I'll be running at the convention. Since CanGames is using a piece of software that limits the blurb to thirty (30) words, I've included here the full blurb about each scenario. :)

*****
Day 1: The Living Land
Game: Torg Eternity RPG
Time: Friday, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: Six innocent strangers are transformed into heroes as an invading reality crashes down around them. They must work together to survive the strange and terrifying world that now surrounds them; a world of dinosaurs & death where once reliable machines no longer function. A Storm is coming...and it has a name!


The Diplomats of Mars
Game: John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: A simple, diplomatic mission to the small Red Martian kingdom of Voninka turns into a matter of survival and getting back to Helium alive! You’ll have to abandon fine words and the arts of diplomacy for a sword and a radium pistol. Are you up to the challenge? An adventure for the new John Carter of Mars Roleplaying Game.


The Tears of Ampharool
Game: Capharnaum - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG
Time: Saturday, 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While travelling through the Desert of Fire, your caravan is surrounded by a great sandstorm and attacked by mysterious, perhaps ghostly assailants... After the storm, the characters see a fabulous palace above the sands, and the promise of adventure. And that's just the beginning! Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is a fantasy rpg set in an imaginary Arabia-like world, that borrows from the tales of the One Thousand and One Nights, as well as semitic legends and the ancient and mediaeval epics. Flamboyant and mythical, filled with light and thrilling adventure!


Day 1: The Living Land
Game: Torg Eternity RPG
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: Six innocent strangers are transformed into heroes as an invading reality crashes down around them. They must work together to survive the strange and terrifying world that now surrounds them; a world of dinosaurs & death where once reliable machines no longer function. A Storm is coming...and it has a name!

For those interested in playing in any of these games, there are six (6) player spots each open for the two Torg Eternity RPG sessions, and five (5) player spots open for the John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game game session and Capharnaum - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG session. So if you're interested in playing in one of the games I'm running at CanGames 2018 this year, please sign up early for the games, as slots may not be available at the convention itself.

Hope to see folks at the convention! :)

Happy Family Day

Happy Family Day!

Well, at least if you live in Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan (and on a different date in British Columbia). :)

I don't really have anything planned this year for Family Day. Just going to take it easy, do a bit of reading (if possible) and maybe watch some DVD stuff.

In the meantime, folks, I hope that everyone has a good Monday. :)

Getting Some Sunday Gaming In, Sort Of

It's Sunday morning, the Sunday of the long weekend (Family Day is tomorrow in certain parts of Canada).

While I won't be gaming in the traditional sense today, as Tammy is on-call for her work, spross has decided that he wants to come out today and do some (play)testing and see how the game mechanics for the John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game shape up and shake out. This is largely due to the fact that he'll be running the Star Trek Adventures game from the same company, and wants to see what the basic game mechanics are like before he tries to run the game.

Should be an interesting afternoon, and I'm looking forward to getting some gaming in.

Friday Evening Game Session Cancelled

In the aftermath of the events of yesterday (see the blog entry about that, and no I'm not linking to it as the memory is too painful just now), I will not be gaming with the Friday gaming group this evening.

We're all in a state of shock still somewhat, not to mention somewhat depressed and feeling down about the matter. I'm not sure when we'll get back to gaming, or even if we'll get back to gaming for that matter, but for now just... No.

That's all I've got to say for this evening, folks.

Some Strawbs Sounds

In the aftermath of yesterday's event, the death of my friend, DavidM, I've been listening to a lot of Strawbs CDs and music.

So here I present a track that I really like at the moment, from the Ghosts (1975) CD.

A Death in the (Gaming) Family

It has been a very difficult day for me today, as well as for the Friday night gaming group.

When I woke up this morning, I learned from Stephanie, DavidM's wife, that DavidM had died at 3:45 am this morning of congestive heart failure as a complication/consequence of his having a very severe case of the flu that's going around. David had been ill for over two weeks now, and had progressively got worse to the point where he'd been admitted to the hospital a week ago today. I'm saddened by his loss, and can't even begin to imagine or feel how his wife and family are right now.

I've been sort of dysfunctional for most of the day, in a state of shock for the most part (I guess), and haven't really accomplished anything at all today other than a bit of banking and grocery shopping I needed to get done.

I'd been gaming with DavidM for several years now, and had come to really like him. His personality was sparkling, he loved his wife and two children, ages 14 and 19, fiercely, and enjoyed what he did for a living. His loss leaves a terrible void in the lives of both his family and his friends, and I still can't believe he's gone.

A tragedy. A horrible day for all concerned.

A Barsoom Valentine, Of Sorts

Here's wishing the incomparable Dejah Thoris a very Happy Valentine's Day!

And to John Carter: You'd better make sure that you get that princess of yours the best Valentine's Day present ever (at least that can be found on Barsoom)! :)

Happy Birthday fredbassett!

Here's wishing another of my Primeval (and The Musketeers) friends, fredbassett, a very Happy Birthday! :)

May the Goddess bless you with good health, happiness, fortune and prosperity for the coming year, and may a warm breeze always blow at your back. And, of course, may any Anomalies that open nearby have nothing but cute, lovable beasties come through! :)

Happy Cupid Day

I just want to wish everyone who is celebrating Valentine's Day today a very Happy, Happy. Be good and especially kind to your loved one today, and make the day special and something to remember for the both of you. Not that you shouldn't be doing that for your special and loved one every day, of course. As experience has taught me in the past, sometimes one may end up with just the memories of a good Valentine's Day to remember.

Ah, well, such is life... *sigh*

Happy Birthday, Lucy Brown!

Happy Birthday, Lucy Brown!

Today is actress Lucy Brown's birthday. A truly lovely and gifted actress, Lucy Brown played Claudia Brown in Series One, and then Jenny Lewis in Series Two and Three of the Primeval UK tv series. Lucy has appeared in several other shows and series, and here's hoping we see a lot more of her on Canadian television in future.

Here's wishing Lucy Brown a very Happy Birthday, and a terrific year ahead!
