Friday Morning Thoughts

Another weird day in the Ottawa valley. The temperature is in the negative single digits (though the wind makes it a bit cooler of course), but it's snowing. Only supposed to drop around 3-5 cms of the white stuff today, but we'll see.

In the meantime, just returned from the doctor's office. He sent me for a skull x-ray yesterday, and I went to the office for an appointment this morning. Not going to talk about what the results showed, but suffice it to say I really hurt myself when I concussed myself back on New Year's day.

In the meantime, I'm back at the house, and will do some work from home for the rest of today, and then I've got some gaming work that I need to do as well. (Who am I kidding? Lots of gaming stuff to do over the next little (maybe long?) while...)

Friday Night Gaming

I've spoken to the players from the Friday night gaming group, and they're pretty pleased.

We'll be gaming tonight for the first time this year, and I'm rather looking forward to it. I'm still running the Yggdrasill RPG, and am looking forward to getting back into that this evening.

In the meantime, back to the work stuff.

New SF RPG: River of Heaven Kickstarter

One of the things that I've been looking for over the last few years, I guess, has been a science fiction roleplaying game. Sure, I've gone through a few of these over the last few years (and no, I'm not naming games here!). Deep down I've never really been happy with any game that I've run, I guess, hence I've not stuck to one game. Part of this stems from the fact that I've got a good idea of what I really want in an sf rpg, and while most of the systems that I've run over the last few years have had some of what I want, they haven't really met the criteria that I've (subconsciously) set for myself.

However, I think that's about to change. I heard yesterday of a brand new science fiction rpg that is going to come out later this year, currently being funded on Kickstarter for its artwork, the River of Heaven RPG, and it looks exactly what I'm looking for, to be honest. Here's what the cover art of the book would appear to be (but this may change, of course):


Lovely, isn't it?

Anyway, I thought I would mention the game here and show it some love, and here is the link to the River of Heaven Kickstarter. Go show the game some love, and let's get this game out there!! I want to run this one, for sure!!

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

Just got off the phone again with Kathy and Nick.

The good news is that the Friday night gaming group is on for tonight. Yay!

While the weather is supposed to turn nasty this evening with freezing rain and stuff, the players have decided that they want to play tonight, and since I'm feeling healthy enough to run the game...

I haven't run anything on the Friday nighters since last year ::lol:: and so am rather looking forward to this game. I'm going to continue running the Yggdrasill RPG as the Friday nighters were in the middle of a scenario for the game. And I like to finish scenarios when I start them, so am quite chipper about this.

Time to eat, and then on to the gaming evening.
