Back from doing some grocery shopping this morning, and then took a bit of a walk outside. The weather is still pretty nice, though the heat of the day is starting to rise, so I'm glad I went out when I did.

Last night, the Friday gaming group met up for the first time since GenCon, and I have to say that I was quite pleased. I didn't know whether I was running Primeval or something else, but the gaming group decided they wanted to see more of the Airship Pirates rpg based on the music of Abney Park, and so I was happy to oblige them.

The players created their characters for the game, created their airship (after all, what would a game like Airship Pirates</i> be without airships, right?), and then did a bit of sample combat to see how it worked in the system. The players were agreed that the game was right up their alley, has some twisted stuff in it that they really like, and seems simple enough mechanics-wise to work for them. Good time was had by all.

I have to admit that after the games and frenetic activity of GenCon, it was nice to get back to gaming with my Friday night group. People that I know sitting around the table gaming together and a relatively quiet room (compared to the gaming rooms at the convention) made for a nice, relaxing evening of gaming.

Hmm, wonder what Sunday's gaming session will bring this week?

Had a terrific time gaming with you and the others last night, and really like the game world of Airship Pirates. I think my Neo-Victorian lady will be interesting to play in the piratical setting, and suspect that I'm going to have the most fun playing this character.

The game mechanics for the (did you call it) Heresy system seem to be simple enough, though not as clean the Ubiquity system or that of the Primeval rpg, but I have no problem with them, and neither did any of the others.

Arrrrrr!! :)

Yep, the game system is the Heresy system. Like you, it's not as clean as the Ubiquity system or that of the Primeval rpg, but still, pretty nice.

Glad you enjoyed it. Looking forward to your playing Lady Emily when I start the campaign of Airship Pirates. :)

I'm quite looking forward to playing Lady Emily. On the other hand, I'm also looking forward to playing the Primeval RPG as well...:)
