Saturday Morning Thoughts

Lovely Saturday morning in the Ottawa valley.

Got up somewhat early today; didn't sleep well last night, too much stuff in my head, so I tossed and turned much of the night. I went out early, and took a walk into the nearby park around 7:45 am, though it was still quite chilly, but am feeling somewhat better now.

Last night's game of All For One: Régime Diabolique went very nicely, as the Friday night gaming group started a brand new adventure (their third) in the system. I'm not going to provide any detail here (but yes, there will be a blog about this), but suffice it to say that things got personal for a couple of the player characters, and some interesting (and possibly occult) things occurred.

Sadly, I won't be running games next weekend at all (Easter weekend, you see), and the week after that I will hopefully run the playtest of the AFO scenario that I have for CanGames this year.

In the meantime, my friend knightbane is supposed to be coming into Ottawa today for several reasons, so I may or may not be meeting up with him.

I also need to spend some time getting some of the SkyRealms of Jorune material out of the box again today. I'm taking this gradually, and putting sheets under plastic and the like. Looking forward to running that game system again in the (near) future.

Earth Hour

The last day of March. But it's more than that.

Folks should not forget that today we celebrate Earth Hour.

Tonight's the night that we switch off the lights between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour is designed to raise awareness of climate change, and was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It is observed by at least 4,000 cities in 88 countries of the world (including the city of Ottawa).

So, remember, turn off the lights for an hour tonight and honour Earth Hour.

1st Edition SkyRealms of Jorune Stuff

The 1st Edition of the SkyRealms of Jorune RPG is one of those rarities that are almost impossible to find. Someone who has a copy of it, that appears to be in excellent condition, posted up this video to Youtube. For those who've never seen the game, take a look at this. And for those who have seen the game and never bought it or for those like me, who still desire the 1st Edition, just drool. :)
