Twelve Miles To The Nearest Fruit Stand

…and we were really needing some fruit

El Stuffo

1: We had Game Day yesterday and my players had tons of fun, as did I. They managed not only to get their characters all the way to the ruined city of Barchan, but also helped return a Knight and his Lady to life so they could banish a demon. Admittedly, the demon was released from his imprisonment by the parties thief, who just had to see what that magical key did when inserted into the magical lock, but it all worked out in the end. The adventure also contained zombie children, amazing Luck rolls, hidden treasures, a Lesser Demon, lots of friendly dogs, phat loot, possession by evil bitches, hungry and/or pissed off giants, dungeons, a very reasonable troll, magical armor, Coolest. Sword. Evar., a bountiful harvest of useful herbs, copper treasure maps of Freeport, hidden cubbyholes and a bigass serpentine water elemental.

2: Yet another meme…Ten Desert Island RPGs…listed in no particular order…
(oh, yeah, you get the basic rules plus all supplements…AND 6-8 other people to game with)

Over The Edge
AD&D 2nd edition
Castle Falkenstein
Mutants & Masterminds
Call of Cthulhu
Runequest 2nd edition

3: I am beginning to think that I may have to take a part time job on weekends, IF I can find one. We are being badly hammered by the economy and need to get caught up on at least a few bills. *SIGH* Working 7 days a week…plus doing mystery shops…is gonna seriously kick my ass.

And now, I must take miss Lucy Lou on a walk. More blogtasticness later.

  1. The game sounds like fun; the money situation doesn’t. Sigh.
    Some overlap in our RPG lists. Mine would include:
    – Over The Edge
    – Castle Falkenstein
    – Heroquest
    – Truth & Justice
    – Everway
    – Underground
    – 7th Sea
    – Blue Planet v. 2
    – Savage Worlds – Explorers Edition
    – Masterbook

    1. Over the Edge
    2. Savage Worlds Explorer’s Edition
    3. Tekumel (presuming the rules allow me to get all the stuff, which is scattered over several editions. Technically it should include MAR Barker’s brain, but that may be stretching it.)
    4. Fading Suns
    5. Torg/Masterbook
    6. Earthdawn
    7. Heroquest
    8. Traveller (does this include all the different editions?)
    9. Underground
    10. Runequest
    It should be noted that if you include GURPS and D&D 3.5 in your wish list, you will have a sufficient volume of supplemental material that should you choose you can simply build a boat out of it all and sail back to civilization and your local FLGS.
