Friday night, the gaming group continued with "Herbquest" scenario in Desolation, but stopped early so they could create some sample characters for Unhallowed Metropolis, and do some sample combat to see what the game was like. They rather enjoyed themselves, creating a wide range of characters - a Doctor (Kathy), a former member of the Deathwatch (SteveB), a Dhampir (Nick), a Mourner (Joanne), a flashy Undertaker (Tom), and a Street Urchin (Ellie). Good stuff all, and the sample combats showed how lethal the game system is, especially with the Mourner decapitating the animates left, right, and centre. We didn't watch any film noir that night, and I went to bed happy, but exhausted. I woke up in the middle of the night with another attack, but it didn't seem too bad, but slept badly the rest of the night.
Saturday, I went out and did a bit of grocery shopping for milk, greens, and that sort of thing. spross came over in the afternoon and helped me dig out the Fvlminata rpg stuff, and then he took the time to create a Mourner character as a sample for the UnMet game. He said he rather liked the game mechanics of character generation.
Sunday, Tammy and spross came over for the usual gaming session, and did some wrap-up of the Hollow Earth Expedition sample combats that they had to do, and did up a pair of sample UnMet characters, an Aristocrat (SteveR) and a Criminal (Tammy). Had a good time, overall, and then after they left, I made a simple fish supper.
I caught the first episode or whatever of the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and didn't like that at all. So don't have to worry about that in future.
And in other news, Exile Games has finally released the public version of Secrets of the Surface World, the excellent sourcebook for the Hollow Earth Expedition roleplaying game. Well worth it, with lots of cool stuff...so check it out in a store near you! :)
Anyway, off to get my echo cardiograph done this morning, and I see that it's snowing again here. Should make the drive to the Cardio Clinic lots of fun. Will drop another line here later.
