My RPG Game Order Update III

Good news, folks.

As many of you remember, I had ordered some rpg game stuff from the good folks at Cubicle 7, and the order got frelled. You can read my last report on the state of the order here.

Well, the good new is that I spoke to angusabranson on Monday, and received e-mails from him on Tuesday that a complete reshipment of the order went out this week. So imagine my surprise when I get home from work on Thursday just as FexEx arrives with a nice package - the reshipment order of all the game material, two copies of All For One: Régime Diabolique, an extra copy of Atomic Highway and the new supplement for that game, Irradiated Freaks, and a copy of ICONS. Great stuff.

And well protected. I opened the rather large box to find a whole whackload of packing peanuts in it. Moving them aside, I did not find the rpg books themselves, but a smaller box that had packing peanuts on both sides with the game books inside.

I am really grateful to Angus for sorting out the stuff with the Cubicle 7 order as rapidly as could be expected, given the stuff with the move of offices and the change in shipping and the new warehouse and distribution system. I am content.

And now, to prepare for tonight's game of Desolation.

haha No plans to run ICONS at all, to be honest. Not into running the super-hero games these days. :)

On the other hand, I am going back to running SkyRealms of Jorune again, as well as Desolation, All For One: R&egime Diabolique, and Shadow, Sword & Spell. Looking forward to CanGames and the next GenCon for sure! :)

I havent played Jorune in a couple decades. Cool setting but I could never quite wrap my brain around it. All for One: Régime Diabolique looks interesting and I am curious to see what Though you didnt get this I also want Nameless Streets that used HeroQuest rules.

SkyRealms is still one of my favourite rpgs, if not *the* favourite, from the 1980s. Sure, the mechanics sucked somewhat, but the game world and the thought that went into it really got to me back then. Still does.

Haven't had a chance to go through All For One, as a few other things have cropped up on my plate that are more important than that, but I do intend to run that game sooner or later.

I had heard about Nameless Streets and even took a look at it in the gaming shoppe I sometimes go to. For me, Noir and The Edge of Midnight are the two film noir rpgs for me, but it looked to be interesting in some ways, and I could pillage it for ideas.

    It's like that quote from The Neverending Story: "It has to hurt if it's to heal!" I say that to myself when things are rough.

    The pandemic absolutely hit healthcare really hard, and still is since…

    Yep, the foot ulcer is definitely scary to deal with, and is beyond uncomfortable. The chiropodist told me at my last appointment a week or so ago that the pain always gets worse as the healing…

    I'm sorry that your foot is causing you so many issues. A foot ulcer sounds scary to deal with as well as uncomfortable.

    Our health care system is rough and I think it's going to get worse before…

    I've definitely been napping more this long weekend. The season is starting to turn and I think it's going to be beautiful out next week. Still my body wants naps so that's what I'm doing.

    I don't…
