Another Thursday

A very cold, less than bright, Thursday morning.

Came in to work to find a load of paper on my desk that needs to be gone through this morning. That should keep me busy, for sure.

Geology class went well both days this week, courtesy of getting a ride from my classmate, Daniel, who has been a really good egg about this. I'm hoping I have my car back for the weekend, but still haven't heard anything so this is seeming less likely as the weekend nears. Made arrangement with Daniel to get a ride to the caves this weekend for the geology class field trip.

All that's on tap for today is an appointment after work with footcare to have my feet and toes looked after. Looking forward to that, as a bit of foot massage never hurts! :) In the meantime, slogging through a difficult chapter in my geology class reading, and doing research on French cheese makers from the 17th Century for other stuff going on. And when I get home from work today, I should be able to post the game session journals from the two games last weekend. Busy day, indeed! :)

Friday Night Game Report - Airship Pirates Session 10

Not quite as overdue as the last entry on the game was, here's the latest session report for the Friday night game of Abney Park's Airship Pirates rpg. You can read about the previous game session in this journal entry. Since this post is quite long, I've put it behind a cut for those who don't want to read about the roleplaying game campaigns that I'm running.

As you can see, this session of the Abney Park's Airship Pirates game was a lot of fun, had some very neat moments, a bit of fighting and a bit of romance, and was extremely enjoyable. The players told me they had a really good time with the session, and that the game really gave them all manner of interesting twists and turns to deal with, something that the Friday group likes. This is pretty much the halfway point (maybe, if things hold to course) of this adventure, and I'm looking forward to running the next session of this one.

Sunday Afternoon Game Report - Airship Pirates Session 9

Here's the game session report on the most recent continuing adventures of the Sunday gaming group in the Abney Park's Airship Pirates campaign. You can read about the previous game session in this journal entry. Since this post is quite long, I've put it behind a cut for those who don't want to read about the roleplaying game campaigns that I'm running.

This session of the Abney Park's Airship Pirates game was actually pretty simple, relatively straightforward, but somewhat boring for both the players and myself. With a couple of exceptions, the situation in Isla Aether never got...focused on...and as a result, the play of the game just meandered and slowed to a crawl. Still, it wasn't as bad a game session as a few that I've had over the years, but I have to say that the situation between the characters (and some of the players for that matter) isn't really good. Perhaps Airship Pirates just isn't the game for the Sunday afternoon group?

Thoughts on this matter, anyone? :)
