Sunday Morning Thoughts, and Gaming

I woke up this morning after a rather poor night's sleep, or at least it felt that way.

I was woken up around 5:00 this morning with some acid reflux stuff going on, and after dealing with that went back to bed but slept only fitfully until around 7:00 or so. Not really feeling rested at all today, so there's a good chance tonight that I will crash early and probably won't watch the Oscars at all.

With my CanGames pre-registration taken care of, I can just relax and try to get ready for the convention and the scenarios that I'll be running there this year. If that relaxation thing is possible at all. Still need to finish writing the two Atlantis: The Second Age scenarios for the convention, but it would be nice if I had a physical copy of the game to do that with. The adventure for the Yggdrasill game is written, so that's ready to go, and I'm also looking forward to that one.

Speaking of Yggdrasill, the Sunday gaming group will be getting back to the game as well today. I think I'm looking forward to that as well.

Time for some breakfast, methinks.

Books Read in February, 2014

New month of March, of course. And so, as is my standard usage of my blog space at the beginning of each month, I present the listing of my February, 2014 reading.

Books Read in February, 2014

Roma Eterna by Robert Silverberg (r)

Atomic Highway Roleplaying Game by Colin Chapman (RPG) (r)

The Grimoire, Volume 1 by David Benoit, Sebastien Celerin et. al. (RPG) (r)

Wizard's Funeral by Kim Hunter (r)

The Gray Papers by David Benoit, Jean-Baptiste Lullien, et. al. (RPG) (r)

January, 2014 Locus

Impossible Futures edited by Judith K. Dial & Thomas Easton

Veniss Underground by Jeff VanderMeer

DW: AiTaS: The Third Doctor Sourcebook by Walt Ciechanowski and Graham Walmsley (RPG)

A Sound of Thunder and Other Stories by Ray Bradbury (r)

Book of Quests by Darren Driver, Tom Griffith, et. al. (RPG)

Unlike January of this year, which was a slow month for me generally due to the concussion, I actually managed a good chunk of reading in February, and have already made a good start reading-wise in March as well. I had an enjoyable time re-reading Roma Eterna by Robert Silverberg, as well as the various Agone RPG products that I've re-read the past few months, but by far the best read of this past month was the anthology Impossible Futures, edited by Judith K. Dial and Thomas Easton, each story of which was a breath of fresh air. Great stuff. Overall, I managed to read 5 novels, 5 RPGs and RPG products, 1 magazine, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels in February. That brings the total for the year (though just the two months) in 2014 to a set of numbers that look like this: 8 books, 9 RPGs and RPG products, 2 magazine, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)

Running Late, and Afternoon Gaming


Running late this morning, so I'm just about to hop into the shower, and then head upstairs to make some lunch.

The Sunday gaming group will be here around 12:45 - 1:00 pm or so, and we're doing Yggdrasill this afternoon. Looking forward to it, but ton of stuff to do.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Session

Gaming with the Sunday afternoon gaming group is done for the day.

I'm pretty tired, but the afternoon was a pleasant one. The players continued on with their campaign of the Yggdrasill rpg, and the game session went pretty well.

Tammy and spross showed up on time, and after checking over a few notes and comparing a few points with the players, I started the game session. The players continued the scenario that they are involved in, and after a bit of a slow start and some minor conflict, the rest of the game session gave the player characters plenty of things to worry about in terms of portents, omens, and a few elements relating to future plots and storylines.

Overall, a pretty good day of gaming and a good session of the Yggdrasill game system. I'm looking forward to next Sunday's game session (weather willing).
