Lest Hartnell Be Forgot

For those who are fans of the Doctor Who tv series, and those who were fans of the actor...

William Hartnell, the first actor to play the Doctor on the Doctor Who series, was born on this day in 1908.

For me, Hartnell will always be the definitive version of the Doctor in the series, as I grew up with him as a kid back in the early and mid-1960's. When I got older, I finally caught some of Hartnell's performances in other things he had done over the years, and came to truly appreciate his acting abilities.

William Hartnell was a superb actor, and he will never be forgotten by folks who loved and admired his acting abilities, and who came to know him as the *First* Doctor on the tv series that we have all come to know and love.

Wednesday Night Game Report - Chill 3rd Edition Session 8

Last night (Thursday), the Wednesday night players continued to play in their Chill 3rd Edition RPG campaign. Here are the game session notes. You can read about the previous session in this journal entry (from back in early December). This blog entry is relatively 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.

Thursday night saw the Wednesday night group play another game session of the Chill 3rd Edition RPG, and this was the first in a while. The group had last played almost a month ago, having to miss the sessions due to the bi-weekly schedule for the game and due to the Christmas and New Year's festivities, so it was good to sit down with them and do some more gaming. I was really pleased to get this session in, and the players were able to wrap up their first Chill 3rd Edition case, and did it in fine style, too! Everyone around the table agreed that they had fun playing the game, and that the game system and mechanics are really good. They aren't sure what they want to play next week (or is it the week after?), but told me they're looking forward to gaming again.

Overall, a good wrap-up for the Wednesday night case, and the first "Wednesday" night game session of 2016. Looking forward to doing more gaming with the players, though I do hope they decide to go on with the Chill 3rd Edition campaign. We'll see what happens.

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

It's been a long day, but I've had a bit of a nap this afternoon, and have done some work to get ready for this evening's game with the Friday night gamers.

I'll be continuing the current scenario of the Chill 3rd Edition game that the Friday nighters are involved in this evening, and am looking forward to that.

But first, some supper.

Have a good night, folks.
