Thursday Night TV and Early Morning Woes

Another day, another dollar. Thursday, part of the working week.

Had a good evening last night, watching the finale of the season for Masterchef (I'm glad the person who won did so, as I didn't like the other person one bit! See, no spoilers!). :) Right after that was the season finale of Camp. I say "season finale", since I'm hoping it gets renewed and a second season comes out. The episode was very enjoyable, resolved a few story plotlines, set things up nicely for a second season, and was very much a fun summer series.

I don't know what I ate yesterday, but I woke up well before the alarm clock was supposed to go off this morning with terrible acid reflux. I managed to take some Gaviscon and was able to fall asleep again, but I didn't get as much sleep as I really needed. So I was quite exhausted when I finally woke up when the alarm went off, but felt somewhat better in my mouth, throat, and down below.

Work looks as if it's going to be extremely busy today, and that's a good thing. The boss is not in the office today, so the office is humming along to itself and things are copacetic. Just busy.

In the meantime, this morning cup of peppermint tea that I'm having right now should do nicely to settle my stomach and lower down a bit more for the day.

Back to the grindstone.

Yggdrasill Character Creation - Haldor Olavsson

As promised, I've been meaning to write this post since I finished the character. Just been a matter of time, but better late than never. :)

Since I'm about to start running the Yggdrasill RPG from Cubicle 7, on my Friday night and Sunday afternoon gaming groups, I thought I would post up here a detailed example of character creation for the Yggdrasill Roleplaying Game.

Game: Yggdrasill Roleplaying Game
Publisher: Cubicle 7
Degree of Familiarity: Somewhat familiar. I've read the game rulebook twice now, and have been a fan of all things Norse for some time. Looking forward to running the game.
Books Required: Yggdrasill RPG rulebook.

Please note that this post is extremely (and I really mean that!) long, as I've gone into the game mechanics in somewhat major detail in terms of character creation, and have provided background on the character and the choices. Hence the majority of this post is behind the cut. That said, there is some of the game mechanics and descriptions of game world elements that I've skimped on in this write-up, so if you want to know more, just drop me a line in the Comments.

And there you have it, character generation for the Yggdrasill RPG.

While the Character Generation process may seem long and arduous at first, it really is quite elegant and pretty easy to go through once you get a good idea of what each step involves and how things connect the dots overall. It can take a couple of hours or so to create a character the first time, but with practice the process will be much faster. This was the second character that I created for the game, and it took me a little under an hour to do so.

As usual, any comments, questions, and so forth are welcome in the Comments on the blog. :)
