E-Day + 24

All is well in Haliskyla. I've been practicing my German, my Swedish, my Finnish and my French. My Irish remains under-used and my English is dominant. I'm writing this while under the influence of beer and vodka, so pardon anything.

All is well here. It's been a very quiet weekend of movies and internet surfing. I've navigated most of my current web comics and must expand into a few others. Just to keep me entertained. I'm mostly settled in now, with most appliances bought or working all is well here. I've been at peace with my house mates since I've moved in so I've been very lucky!

We had our house party today. I had quite a bit of food before we started. I had cereal and a sandwich before the mandatory house meeting at half 4. There were a lot there and myself and Hamish attended. It was pretty much standard - no parties, so we were a bit nervous! There were meant t be 33 attending our house party that night! We all had gin, vodka, whiskey and plenty of beer to keep us going.

The house party was excellent. It was very packed for the first two hours but petered out after 12. It's 3:30 and I'm still posting. Finally met people like Natasha, Lea and Jasmine who I meant to meet at the start of the year. Some others as well that I hadn't meant in person I finally met! I was a great night. Spent most of it drinking, socializing and whatnot so was a happy host! The Mac were playing the whole time so delighted!

All is well in Turku. And my love is coming here in October so I'm happy out :)

Review #8 T.I.M.E Stories: The Prophecy of Dragons redeux *spoilers*

Bit of a gap since the last time I posted but hell these posts are only for my memory and my loyal spambot fanbase.

Prophecy of Dragons I played with my brother's group in a single night and I have the record in another post. This is my second play through with Cathy and Royce from a few weeks ago.

I played the Elven Ranger, Royce the paladin with the re-roll and Cathy was the lady assassin. We had lay on hands from the paladin which costed no magic and were pretty tasty in combat overall. We started out in the inn as well, made sense to go there. We made the mistake of turning over the door card without the key but we would be coming back, Royce got the golden underwear item and I made contact with our employer; someone checked out the gambling but we left for the market.

In the market we didn't buy any armour and weapons but bought some assorted whatnots from the potion dealer. We also bought tools either here or at the castle plaza, wherever the cat merchant is. Most of the…

#AprilTTRPG Maker 1-15

1. Who are you?

26 year old creative-student-worker-father-gamer

2. Where ya at?

West coast of Ireland. Wouldn't have it any other way really.

3. How did you start creating ttrpgs?

Ooh. Funny how I spent my youth creating new card and board games based off old ones or inventing whole new concepts altogether. A very elaborate game of chess involving the red hit dice from Battle Masters of all things comes to mind.

TTRPGS specifically? Myself and two old friends used to play Lego and hey would have their set characters, player characters if you will, while I had one guy but also controlled the world and all other people - DMPCs, NPCs, and dungeon mastering all at once. We transitioned easily over to 3.5 edition D&D after a failed GURPS one-off. A great two year campaign followed.

4. Describe your work.

Very elaborate RPG systems if designing in isolation from the setting.

5. Favorite game you've worked on.

GURPS can be absolutely fabulous if there is a limit to what tables a…

Game report follow-up: T.I.M.E Stories The Marcy Case 1992 w/ C & R spoiler-tastic

We were extremely well-drilled from having played the Asylum the morning before. Cathy and Royce took turns managing the Item Deck. I managed the turn tracker and interpreted rules and general oversaw everything running smoothly.

Run #1

We started at the City Entrance and Cathy decided to save the copper fighting the zombie. I told her to fire her gun once here I think. She received a shotgun afterward! I went for the car boot while Royce tanked the zombies that you must fight. Trapper the Dog joining Royce for this fight only but stayed with Cathy for the rest of the game. I eventually liberated the convict (after checking out the dead policeman) and got the jury-rigged rocket.

Evoking zombie tropes, we elected to go to the police station first. We got a Marcy for our trouble, a cassette (I think), keys and the Gatling gun. I got that by shooting off the lock. Going into the room with the zombies is never palatable, especially when you have plenty of health packs.

The High School was…
