Destiny 2 art

Like the first in the series, Destiny 2 has some beautiful concept and design art. (Contains spoilers for one of the big early adventures.)

This Jaime Jones piece alone makes me want to run something.

As a comment by wombat23 below says: destiny is the fps set in the world i want to play an rpg in.

The new soundtrack also features, amongst others, the Kronos Quartet.
Happy birthday to my brother, who GMed once and then I had to go for it.

Closure

That game that fizzled just before its last session.

That moment you discover your TV archive has five seasons and the show you were rewatching had six.

It’s been that kind of week.

I generally try to bring some degree of closure to fizzling games, but when they fail mid-attempt that doesn’t make it easy.

Wednesday, 20 September 2017

Game on.

Buffy, three players (with more apparently coming to the society next week) as a demon-haunted immortal, a Watcher footsoldier and... some guy.

Game on...?

It is Wednesday.

I have character sheets.

Wish me luck.

A plan, of sorts

Okay, new plan.

Go along on Wednesday, maybe play or run something. Possibly Buffy since it can be casual.

Maybe play something Sunday afternoon.

GM something Sunday evening. Leaning towards Vampire (probably Masquerade) since it tends to be heavy. I ran Star Wars in the slot last year and it was alright, but eight or more weeks of action is a but much for me. And Vampire’s been on my mind of late between World Of Darkness Berlin, Storytellers Vault and previews for V5. Sure, it might be smarter to wait for V5 and see if I like the new edition, but have you met me?

The Hood Maker

Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams anthology series starts tonight with an adaptation of The Hood Maker, in which telepaths are now common enough that one just joined the city police, everyone knows what a scan feels like, and someone has worked out a way to block them. It’s a setup that could easily expand to a series itself.

GEAS 2017 introduction

I think my intro RPG went okay... for the players who could hear it. The not hearing was due to a big fresher turnout, though, so that’s good.

Harry Dean Stanton

Harry Dean Stanton has died. As Roger Ebert put it, “no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad.”

Miss Fisher And The Crypt Of Tears

Every Cloud Productions are Kickstarting the Miss Fisher movie.

2017-18 academic year game plans

Apparently GEAS got 96 signups at the freshers’ activity fair. So getting players this year may not be a problem.

So obviously it’s time to bring out my most unpopular ideas!

Okay, okay, maybe not.

Running D6 Star Wars for the introductory session, and maybe for Sunday evenings this term. Rebellion era, as the Resistance era is still quite sketchy (and likely to become much less so right around the end of term) and your basic daring missions and Stormtrooper-shooting and the like.

Still also considering...

Vampire: The Masquerade, possibly in the 1920s, depending on that other urban fantasy game set in the 1920s.

The Chronicles Of Darkness... based on a classic British comic story... that I’ve never actually read.

ICONS as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Buffy, maybe reusing Sounds Like Hell after its previous fizzle.
