*****

October was a pretty good month for me in terms of reading, though it was mostly Richelieu's Guides and other game material for the All For One: Régime Diabolique RPG. That said, there were also a fair share of novel re-reads mixed in as well as some new books (new for me, anyway). I definitely read more books than I expected to, so I'm not displeased with the month's reading, to be sure. While I enjoyed all of what I read this month, I absolutely adored The Devil's Eye by Jack McDevitt, The Hesitation Cut by Giles Blunt, and the re-read of Vonda N. McIntyre's Dreamsnake, and the Felicia Day sort of auto-biography, You're Never Weird on the Internet (almost). Good reads, all. :) In October, I managed to read 10 novels, 7 RPG and RPG products, 1 magazine, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels. This brings the year totals so far up to: 77 books, 28 RPGs and RPG products, 19 magazines, 424 comics, and 2 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)

Friday Night Game Report - Chill 3rd Edition Session 2 (Saturday)

Saturday night, the Friday night gamers continued to play in their Chill 3rd Edition RPG campaign. Here are the game session notes. You can read about the previous session of the campaign in this journal entry. This blog entry 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.

Saturday night's session of the Chill 3rd Edition campaign with the Friday night players was a lot of fun, and provided a good time for all concerned. The session was a bit of a mix of player character personal lives and some of the plot threads currently going on in the scenario and the hooks for future events. The players told me they were surprised by a couple of developments in the story, but that they enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and that they can't wait to see what happens next and how the various plots unfold.

Overall, a good session of the Chill 3rd Edition, and I can't wait to get back to the game later this week.
