Thursday Morning Musings

Thursday morning in Ottawa.

The weather has warmed up again, somewhat, though there's going to be patches of rain for the day as well. I plan to try and take a walk around the condo area when I get off work this afternoon, and then take it easy for the rest of the day.

Work is...work. Somewhat busy this morning with the translation job currently ongoing. Nothing new or revelatory going on, just solid work in the trenches for today.

Today is also one of those unusual, but neat days on the calendar as well. According to the newspaper, today is one of the days of the year when there will be 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. This is one of the signs of the coming of the vernal equinox (which is on Sunday, the 20th). Kind of neat.

Wednesday Night Game Report - DragonQuest Session 3

Last night, the Wednesday night players continued play in their DragonQuest RPG campaign. Here are the game session notes. You can read about the previous session of play 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.

Wednesday night's game session of the DragonQuest RPG campaign was pretty enjoyable, with the players getting in some good roleplaying, making a few hard decisions, and fighting some more goblins. This session wrapped up the first adventure with the Wednesday night players, and saw them arrive at their civilised destination at the edge of Carzala, and the players commented that they were pretty pleased at the adventure, how it turned out, and the fact that the rules and mechanics didn't really get in the way of play all that much. Crystal commented that she really likes the DragonQuest magic system, and is fond of playing the Earth Mage, but everyone added that the best part of the game system is: the Combat System! The Tactical Display makes it easy to visualise combat so much better for them, and mechanics of combat are actually rather simple when one looks at it from the player point of view.

Overall, a terrific session of DragonQuest to wrap up the Wednesday night first adventure. Looking forward to starting a new adventure in a couple of weeks.
