Ho! Ho! Ho!

'Tis the 24th of December, and thus 'tis Christmas time.

While I was born Jewish and am more pagan than anything else these days, I just want to wish all my LiveJournal friends and those who read LJ from time to time a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hogswatch, and a Happy Holiday season. Take care of yourselves, be good to yourselves, and remember, as a nice Jethro Tull song says: "The Christmas spirit is not what you drink."

Merry Christmas, everyone! :)

Sunday Afternoon Game Report - a|state Session 4

The Sunday afternoon gaming group continued on with the a|state RPG campaign, and it was a good game session. You can read about the previous game session in this journal entry. Since this post is quite long, I've put it behind a cut for those who don't want to read about the roleplaying game campaigns that I'm running.

I had a pretty good gaming session of the a|state RPG on Sunday, and thought the game went rather well. The game session had a little bit of everything in it, though the conflict was less physical than it was mental, and the players seemed to handle things pretty well (other than what I've mentioned elsewhere and below). Tammy did a pretty good job playing her Megan "Mouse" Owens, and was rather effective in her role this game session. On the other hand, spross struggled with his character's job of investigating the theft of a machine part and focused instead on the business of the murder. He doesn't seem to grasp the process of conducting the investigations (the questions to ask, among other things) from a roleplaying point of view, and it was a bit painful and frustrating to watch Tammy give him hints and clues about what he should be doing. Otherwise, the game session was pretty good.

I won't be running the Sunday a|state game again until the New Year, so am looking forward to continuing on with that.
