Sunday Morning, and Possibility of Gaming Today

I woke up this morning feeling somewhat refreshed after yesterday's endeavours and all.

I actually had a good night's sleep, catching about 7-1/2 hours worth, and I guess that makes all the difference.

It's snowing outside as I write this blog entry, and the forecast calls for around 4.5 cms of snow over the course of the day, but I can see outside there's got to be around 3 or 4 cms out there already, so I think the weather guys got it wrong again, and there'll be more than they say there will.

This could mean that today's gaming session with the Sunday players might not happen at all, and if so, I'll be disappointed. This would mean that other than the solo scenario that spross played last Sunday (I'm still waiting on him to send me a snippet about the game session so I can finish the write-up and then blog it here to the journal!), the Sunday gaming group won't have played yet in the new year. This is not a good omen for gaming with spross and Tammy in 2014, methinks.

If the game this afternoon doesn't happen, though, it will give me time to do some writing on stuff this afternoon, or perhaps catch up with a few more DVD episodes and the like.

Gaming on This Sunday Afternoon

I had spoken to Tammy earlier this morning, and she told me that she wanted to game and so was willing to come in for the game session this afternoon, despite the seemingly bit of a mess outside from the recent snowfall (which appears to have stopped).

However, I still hadn't heard from the other player, and left him a text message as the main phone was constantly engaged. spross finally called me back about ten minutes ago, and let me know that he's willing to come in to game if Tammy is, which she is.

This means that I'll be running the Sunday gaming session of Yggdrasill this afternoon. I'm quite looking forward to it.

Gaming on a Sunday Afternoon

Spent the afternoon playing Yggdrasill with the Sunday afternoon gaming group and had a pretty good time of it.

Tammy and spross were both right around time, just, and that was pretty good considering the drives that both of them had to make and the snowy conditions on the roads. Once we settled down at the table to game, I started off the Yggdrasill session going over what had come before and re-familiarising the players with the basics of the game rules. Then we got into the gaming session.

I think the players had a good time with the game. This was the first time that both Tammy and spross gamed together since December 8th of 2013, so it had been a long time (though SteveR played a solo session last week) and this was good fun. Things were a bit rough as both players struggled to get back to the game system and the Norse mindset needed for this one, but eventually things got back on track. While there was no combat in the session, the players dealt with a tricky situation on a barge and have a somewhat cliffhanger type of ending to the session.

In any event, I'm looking forward to running the game next week.
