Thoughts on a Thursday Morning

It's been an interesting Thursday so far.

I'm still feeling sick, but managed to make an appointment with the doctor for this afternoon at 3 pm. I don't know what he can do for me, but we'll see what happens there.

I've been doing a lot of reading since I got home, despite my head feeling very bad due to the illness, and I managed to finish reading Keltia over breakfast this morning. This game is a marvellous Arthurian roleplaying game that takes its basis from Welsh and French sources, rather than the typical ones, and is a more gritty version of the genre. The background material on the game world was worth the read alone!

Last night's game with the Wednesday night group was quite enjoyable. I'll blog about that a bit when I get the chance today, but lots on my plate at the moment.

Back to work now.

Wednesday Night (Board) Gaming

As mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I gamed last night with the Wednesday night players.

I was expecting to run the Atlantis: The Second Age campaign last night, but the players surprised me when they showed up. However, instead, the players informed me that they had a neat surprise for me. David, Donna's husband, had decided that he wants to try his hand at running a game, so for the evening, we sat and chatted about what game he should run and that the others (myself included) would play, while we sat and did some board games.

We started off playing a couple of games of Ticket to Ride: Europe, and then switched over to a game of Britannia (the current version, that David brought with him), and had a good evening with that.

By the time we finished gaming for the night, David had decided that he wants to run a science fiction roleplaying game, and that he's going to start looking into various games to see which one appeals to him. I can't wait! :)

An extremely long post, as folks can see, so I hope that all those who read it enjoyed it. :)

That's the wrap-up on the fifth day of the trip to Indy, and the second official day of GenCon 2015. The Sunday report on events will follow when I get the chance to write up my memory derived notes.
