The last couple of days were good ones. My daughter expressed interest in "making up her own world and running a game", and I finally managed to get to the MA shop and ordered a mat to specifications, which is now being hand-crafted.
The purported wisdom of experience and maturity fails to provide simple answers for some old questions. For twenty-eight I have been asked, “what is Rifts?” and I dread the question now every but as much as I dreaded it in the past. Maybe even more so.
Well, I am NEVER donating blood again!
It's like they don't even want it! The second you walk through the door, it's just inane question after question, like
"Where did you get it?"
"Why is it in a bucket?"
And now the party in my wuxia game are in the Tekumel's "planetary metro". Left behind by the ancients, which have - obviously - created that planet as well.
They've got plans how to use it.
What can go wrong? @Shemek hiTankolel any ideas?
OK, now I have a problem. Does anyone know of a martial arts/wuxia game published in the last decade and inspired by Legends of the Wulin?
I have bought it, but I can't remember the name, and thus can't re-read it!
The game in question is Dragon Pool. I opened my external memories, literally, and found it on one of them!
Now I'm off to re-read it.
In the Age of Covid, even minor cold symptoms you would normally work through get you sidelined at home and being told to go for testing.
Off work for 2 weeks over a scratchy throat and runny nose... yay me.
On the blog, I am posting notes on running the Ruined Tower of Zenopus using old school D&D. The first post covers pages 1-5, the bulk of which is stats for my customized Wandering Monster table. Notes are written up for Holmes Ref (Holmes Basic + OD&D) but should be suitable for any old D&D.
Sorry for not being very active on actual gaming threads. The longer you go without gaming, the more it feels like something you won’t be doing anymore... then again, maybe this is the kick in the pants I need.
