Saturday Goings On

Had a somewhat relaxing Saturday, which was a good thing.

Woke up feeling somewhat tired and out of it, but managed to get up, take a stretch, and about a 5-minute walk outside. Came back inside, just as it was starting to get warm outside, and made breakfast, then showered, and then got down to putting in a load of laundry to wash and doing a bit of reading.

During the afternoon, spross came over for a while, and we continued to work on his (superhero) character for the Sixcess Core game system. A good way to spend the afternoon, but the character still isn't finished.

My sister, who has been in Ottawa visiting my mom this week, and mom came by and picked me up, and Diana took us out for our birthday supper. (My birthday was on the 3rd, and Mom's birthday is the 4th of August.) We went to Brother Wu for supper, and had a marvellous Chinese meal together. I had a bowl of mustard green soup, and we ordered mu shee chicken, hunan dumplings, sizzling beef on a platter, chinese broccoli, honey garlic spare ribs (for my sister) and chicken with cashews. I didn't eat all that much, sampling food from the dishes for the most part, but it was a good, hot, tasty meal. All washed down with tea.

After supper at Brother Wu's, Diana drove me home, and I relaxed for the rest of the evening listening to some Kate Bush music, and putting laundry in the dryer.

Friday Game Report - Primeval RPG Session 31

I meant to post this up yesterday, but things got away from me and so it's a day later than I planned. Two nights ago, on Friday night, the Friday night gaming group continued on with their ongoing Primeval RPG game campaign. Here's the game session report. You can read about the previous session of the game in this journal entry. This post is somewhat long, and I've put it behind a cut so that folks who don't want to read any detailed rpg posts don't have to.

Friday night's game session of the Primeval RPG was a lot of fun, and one of the first sessions in a while of the game where there was a lot of action. Story Points were flying off and on the table as the game session went on, and the players got really involved in the session, with some heated character interaction, notably with Mark's character having some "problems" with the approach taken by the other characters. There was a also a bit of humour in the session to leaven the serious moments (a lot of those!), and the players commented when we were finished that this was one of the most enjoyable sessions of the game they'd played in a bit.

A great evening of gaming with the Friday night group. Look forward to next week's session, to be sure! :)
