Monday Morning Thoughts

Monday morning. Also the last day of March.

And the start of the new baseball season. (Again, Goddess, but does time fly!)

Seems like it's going to be a beautiful day outside, so it's too bad that I'll be working at the office today.

Sunday was a relatively uneventful day, though spross did drop by for a bit, and helped me recover through him some of the gaming files that I lost when the last laptop hard drive died.

I took it easy for most of the day, napped a bit, and watched the Ottawa Senators-Calgary Flames NHL hockey game. Ottawa won the game 6-3, but it was pretty meaningless as their playoff hopes are just a dim flicker at this point, if even that.

Work has been excessively busy this morning, the normal state for a Monday at work, so it promises to be a long day at work. Not that this is a bad thing on a Monday, as it hopefully means things will not be so hectic as the week progresses.

In the meantime, a nice cup of peppermint tea awaits.

Friday Night's Game Session of Yggdrasill

I ran the Friday night group through their pacings in another game session of the Yggdrasill RPG campaign this past week (March 28th), and the players did a pretty good job of it in this tough game session.

The players all arrived by around 7:20 pm or so, and after a quick catch-up on the week's activities, the group got down to the gaming session. This game session was all about roleplaying, decisions, some combat, and a few surprises. The player interaction and somewhat conflicting views of the player characters made this an extremely entertaining session both for myself and the players (as several of them admitted after the session), while the physical violence with the dog-headed humanoids gave those craving something of a physical release a bit more to sink their teeth (well, swords and axes) into. The game session definitely had its ups and downs, and the player characters were hesitant at first about the splitting up of the group along the lines that were eventually decided on, but it made for an interesting latter part of the game session, and allowed some good player character interaction.

The Friday players continue to praise the Yggdrasill game system, though they are still itching to play the Atlantis: The Second Age game system (but I still don't have my hardcover copy of the game book). That said, they're finding the current adventure entertaining and it's holding their attention, so I can't ask for more really.

In the meantime, looking forward to the first Friday game session of April. (Geez, is it already April? Goddess, how time flies!)

Friday Night Game Report - Yggdrasill RPG Session 18

Here is the eighteenth session report on the Friday night Yggdrasill game campaign. This session was played Friday night, and is the most recent game session of the Friday group. You can read about the previous session of the campaign in this journal entry. This post is somewhat long, so I've put it behind a cut so that folks who don't want to read any detailed rpg posts don't have to.

I don't really have much more to say about the game session of Yggdrasill that I ran on Friday night, having said pretty much everything about it in this journal entry.

I will say that the players were somewhat surprised at the surprise at the end of the session, though those players not up on their Norse lore and mythology were in the dark. David and Kathy set the group straight about matters, and the players are definitely looking forward to this week's game session of Yggdrasill.

Come to think of it, so am I! :)
