Commentary about games I’m in right now. Thrilling!
Only took me a month. I blame NaNoWriMo. And laziness. This will be relatively brief since time has faded the crazy high I left the convention with and I don’t want this to be even later than it already is.
Exalted didn’t happen this last weekend due to a last minute cancellation. Werewolf isn’t for another week. But I did have the first session of the new “kids’ game”. I’m not sure that it should still be called the “kids’game” now that most of them are 18, but there’s still a 15+ year age gap between us, so perhaps the term still applies for now.
Overall it was overwhelming. We had 8 kids show up. I really only thought we’d have 6, but 8 actually showed up. It was loud and a little overwhelming, especially when I had two players who were new and two players who were anything but new but were not prepared to play when they showed up. I tried some new stuff this game, so here’s my thoughts on how it went behind the cut.
This last Sunday we did a one-shot of Dark*Matter, the modern fantasy/horror/conspiracy setting for the Alternity system. The game didn’t end up being very system heavy so I don’t have much to comment on, so this will be a comparatively short after-action report.
A few game related thoughts I’d had since my last post. One continuing my thoughts on random encounters, one regarding an idea I’m poaching from tatterdamelion for the kids game (which the random encounter thoughts reminded me of) and one regarding a quote from the White Wolf team on game design.
This Saturday I had my crazy double feature of gaming: dungeon crawl style Exalted followed by Werewolf: The Wild West. Commentary behind the cut.
[I’m made of dumb. I originally friends locked this. D’oh. Force of habit.]
Some thoughts on the first session of D&D, plus thoughts on the upcoming Werewolf: Wild West and Exalted games.
Have an assortment of things that I’ve been mulling around regarding roleplaying games. Let’s see how many I get through, huh?
I picked up the new World of Darkness: Innocents last week but didn’t manage to read any of it until this week. I promised a review in my private blog, so here it is. The short version is: A little disappointed.
