next session

We're going to keep the original date. Sorry, Jason. I hope you can make it, but I'm sure I can kill your character even without you there :P

Hey everyone-

I did see Jason's post about changing our next game date. I'm not ignoring it. I'm trying to work out with Kelly when / if I can re-schedule it. As soon as I have confirmation, I'll let you know.

I just posted a comment to Dave's post. It got a little long.

I'm back from Vegas. And I'm a much better limit hold-em player than no-limit. I think I made enough playing poker to cover what I lost on the slots.

In the words of Hughie Louis

So this is it.
One month, a link on the cringe, and not a single answer as to who wants to play the game I am making. That speaks pretty loud and clear.
I'm deleting my game blog.

I know, I've asked this before, but I though I'd check the current state of opinion. I've got a lot of different games that I can run, and many that I'm really interested in running-- but obviously I only have so much time. So, just a quick look at "public" opinion.

Which Are You Most Interested In?
Rise of the Runelords Campaign (3.5 Pathfinder)
Ptolus Campaign
The 4e Campaign
Hollow Earth Expedition Campaign (Pulp)
A Modern Campaign
A Sci-Fi Campaign
A Call of Cthulhu Campaign

For those of you that are interested, you can download a free trial version of Wizards' 4e character creation software. Since it is the trial version, it only allows you to create characters up to level 3. It looks like it might be an interesting resource. At the very least, it looks like it might be helpful in learning the 4e character creation process and a little bit about the game. For those of you who didn't shell out for the PHB (or obtain a copy by some less legal method), it also allows you to look at the PHB entry for each power, feat, etc. as you are choosing them. So, a good way to learn some of the new stuff in the game. Hopefully, we are only a few months away from a 4e campaign, and learning the rules might be useful.

Game of Sat, July 18

Is there any way we might be able to shift this game forward or back a week? Turns out that's the weekend of our semiannual college get together/LAN party down in Wichita and one of my friends who's now in South Carolina is going to attending and I'd like to make it if possible.

Lemme know?

The Awesome, It Goes to 11

This is really cool.

This might be cooler, though I'm not sure if it is really functional-- and it's certainly not affordable.

One sided dice

Drebin closed the door to the room and turned to Livy, who had sprawled out on her bed. He sighed and said, “So, did ‘the gods’ tell you to go on this little quest too? Perhaps they visited you in a dream again?”

Livy grinned. “Oh come on. Where’s your sense of adventure? Besides, weren’t you listening? One thousand gold pieces. Isn’t that reason enough?”

Drebin felt a small pain shoot through the temple next to his damaged eye. He rubbed it.

“Listen,” he said, “you can’t keep doing this.”

“Doing what?” Livy asked, a little perturbed.

“You know well ‘what,’” Drebin erupted. “You keep getting it in your head that you need adventure in your life. You don’t. We don’t.”

“Fine then,” Livy said, standing up and turning away from him. “You don’t have to go where you don’t want to. I can take care of myself.”

“The hell you can!” Drebin exclaimed. “Remember the last time you got a wild hair and went on one of your little ‘adventures?’ Remember what happened when you decided you wanted to go off on your own and try to make some money on your own? Remember who followed you and ended up having to fight off a bar full of sleaze and saved your hide?”

“Drebin, that’s not fair,” she said, spinning to face him. “I was a lot younger then. I’ve matured and I’ve become a much better fighter.”

In his mind, Drebin had to admit that Livy had learned a lot in the past few years, but he would be damned if he would say it out loud. He sighed heavily. “I’m not going to talk you out of this, am I?”

“Oh,” she said, leaning into him for a hug, “when have you ever been able to say ‘no’ to me?”

He hated it when she had a point. He really did.
