Friday Night's (March 22nd) Game Session of Yggdrasill

As folks who are into the roleplaying game stuff on my blog may have noticed, because of the death of my computer back on the morning of the 22nd of March, I haven't posted the campaign thoughts and game session material about the Yggdrasill campaigns that I've been running.

So here, for those who miss the stuff :), is the first bit of stuff about the game session from back on Friday, March 22nd.

*****
Last night, I ran the Friday night gaming group session once more, as per usual. The players are currently involved in their Yggdrasill game of Norse adventure in the 4th through 6th Centuries, and the players had a pretty good time as usual.

The players all arrived for the game by around 7:15 pm, so once everyone was present, we got down to a bit of small talk and then proceeded with the evening's game session. The game session had a little bit of everything in it, starting with the in media res situation carried over from the week before, and the players got their blood pumping immediately with the fight against the dog-head creatures. After that, the game took a slower turn, though there was some combat and sparring here and there, as the characters negotiated some of the more difficult situations of inter-character action. There were some great moments in this session, notably Kathy's Ingrid Horoldsdottir and Ellie's Jordis Hodersdottir being protective of the Halvor children, the willingness of Angela's Sigrun Evardsdottir to embrace the romance sub-plot with the NPC, Runolf Beinirsson, and some of the fighting choices and decisions made during the desperate combat near the beginning.

Overall, the players had an excellent time of it in this most recent game session of Yggdrasill. Nick and David commented once more on how simple the game mechanics are, and how easy it is for the players to roleplay their characters and not worry overly much about the mechanical aspects of the game (that's what the GM is for, btw!). Overall, another successful and enjoyable session of the game.

I'm looking forward to next Friday's session, weather willing, of course, given that this is March! :)
