    ConX - Suspended until 20110107

    After taking a thorough look at the month of December, I have come to realize that it is a fool's errand to try and get people together enough to actually run stuff, seeing as how pretty much every holiday is aligned specifically to poop on us. It is even doing this for Darren's game.

    As a result, with only one week that may pass for playable (wouldn't be surprising if some other excuse came up to crap on that), I simply don't care to fight any further.

    However, for those of you who do want to do some game related stuff, I strongly (as in, I will pester you throughout the week) advise you get your character's belongings delineated. This sort of thing will be relevant because, if I don't see it on your character sheet, I will exercise executive power to pretty much deny everything that is not in your approved profile.

    Default Plan is still in place...

    Well, as time wears on and this year finally comes to a close, I find that there is NO REASON why my plan for ConX should falter!

    My players better be ready to bring the thunder because I have every intention to carry on full throttle and to the hilt!

    Default ConX Canceled

    It should come as no surprise that not only did only one person show up, but that I've lost patience and completely bailed.

    I'll also be giving up games on Friday. Maybe Snake will fill the spot.

    Default Head's up

    I am currently thinking of a new game to run.

    In the meantime, I will engage in some playtesting. There's a bunch of rules that need to undergo the gauntlet before they can be allowed entirely.

    Default New Game

    So, it turns out that I'm going to be running a new game.

    It uses my ConX set in 2025 as the history, wherein the Reckoning manifested as a massive war between the forces of our reality opposing the forces of madness from beyond. Our reality triumphed, but earth has been bloodied and scarred. It is now 2065, 25 years after the end of the war.

    I'm looking for low- to mid-level characters. I will be setting up a new thread for the game in the near future.

    Default Post-Apocalypse

    The year is 2070, 25 years after a huge biological and supernatural disease has ravaged the planet. The war is over.

    Characters should be worth around 110 points (tops out at 140), but I would prefer that the background and personality be written up before the points are spent.

    There will be elements of survival, exploration, combat, and social interaction. Mostly the latter three.

    Default The Post Apocalypse Game Has Ended

    Should be fairly self explanatory.

    A motion to summarily terminate the game was started and so I put it to the vote. The "end game" votes won.

    The next game is in the air.

    Right, people in the know already know that I've started a supers game.

    I'll be putting up an XP thread if things continue to go well.

    I changed the way I'm doing XP. Players will now get a grade for their performance in each scene and that correlates to XP, F = 0, A = 4, if you can't figure out what B, C, and D are, you really don't belong outside of third grade.

    XP threads have still not been established for Rekeldium or Will to Power.

    Time is short, but hopefully this week I'll be able to sort it out. No promises.

    The Will To Power, Season 2, should be starting sometime January.

    Right now, we have 3 solid players (Melissa, Darren, and Phil). Alex might be joining after all. Salvius is very unlikely to join. We may be delayed because of Melissa, we'll have to see later.

    I started and ended the Vermaledeitland game. That was kind of a bummer because the setting had a great deal of potential. I'm not going to point any fingers, but I did just strike a player from the roster.

    The next game is a WitchCraft game called Secrets Abound.

    I have two solid players (Darren and Phil), one potential, and room for more.

    Secrets Abound will explore the relationship between actions on the material realm and consequences on the spirit realms. This will occur against the backdrop of The Reckoning during 2022 (obviously, this is not following the WitchCraft and Armageddon chronology). Instead, take a look over at the ConX - As Long As There Are People thread to get an overarching idea of the world landscape. The details from the Covenant side of things will come later.

    Also, this game is slated to be run on Fridays, 7p to 11p, Pacific.

    I'm going to double down on class for the next couple months so I can wrap up. After that, I'll be able to run games free of a significant distraction.

    Life throws yet another curve ball. No doubling up. I guess I'm going to have to stick it out.

    GMing is back on the table. I'm still running Manifest Destiny.

    Manifest Destiny ended. Oddly enough, both players survived. A change in schedule meant that I wasn't able to keep running every week and keep my existing players.

    Anyway, the next game is set in Vermaladietland. It's a high difficulty action/exploration/adventure game in a dark fantasy setting. I'll be recruiting for this one but not until after the holidays. I don't like running during the holidays. People do stuff with family and whatnot. It's just a pain. It does give me time to work out the details.

    Mixed news.

    The Saturday Vermland game is going well. It's titled "Where Heroes Falter" and it's about a mercenary company that went to a cursed kingdom in search of loot and are coming to the realization that they are in far deeper crap than anticipated.

    I added a Monday Vermland game. This one is more of a hero's journey titled "In the Hearts of Men and Monsters." Currently, the cast is a boy soldier with a drive to save others, a lady looking for freedom, and now a musician eager to find a place that she can fit in.

    I'm hoping things play out but the Monday game may be in for a schedule change. That may play merry havoc with the player's ability to attend and if it does, it may go bust. That would suck, since it's a nice experience for me.

    Well, it turns out life has thrown me yet another curve ball. As a result, I'm suspending Saturday and Monday games for at least 10~12 weeks and maybe for 2 to 5 years. Tragic, I know. I'll have to find out how Tue to Thu looks. The games must go on.

    As predicted, I'll be trying to resurrect games on Fri and Mon starting August 8. That is almost exactly 10 weeks.

    The votes are in: Vermland - Where Heroes Falter will continue. No word yet on if Vermland - In the Hearts of Men and Monsters.
