…and a kindly king he is
The polls are kaput, my little tenrecs, and the winners both won by a large margin.
So, starting tonight or tomorrow, I’ll be doing the daily People, Places & Things bit here, starting with the letter X. Yes, that’s 7 days of X stuff before we move on to the even more exotic Y. Nothing like starting Uncle Doc with the easy letters, eh?
As for the writing assignment, which I can now reveal is titled Secret Cities: San Francisco, I’ll be starting it within the next 48 hours…and I’m going to be opening up what I write to your criticisms and discussion right here on this blog. Yep, once or twice a week, I’ll update y’all on how things are going and share with you what I have been writing about. I look forward to your keen insights on how I’m either fucking up or amazing you with my mad game setting design skillz.
In other gaming news, despite the fact that our gaming group lost 2 out of 5 players back in February, we are finally getting together on Sunday to put the wraps to Part 1 of our “Return of Magic” series. Once that is over, we’ll be taking about a month long break and then starting Part 2, which will be set on the same world, but a different continent, 150 years later. Magic will be considerably more formalized, monsters will be much more common, kingdoms will be larger and the Age of Exploration is just barely getting started. The player characters will be secret agents of a non-human race who go outside their home kingdom on various assignments. I’m aiming for a fast paced pulpy sort of fantasy game here, folks.
On one last gaming note, I’ve still not heard from the folks at Conquest Sac about rescheduling my 7:00 game on opening night, so I guess I’ll have to poke them with a stick. Assuming they do reschedule it to 9:00, it will be a Pulp Era game using bothe the Over The Edge rules and a variation of the Al Amarja setting.
I’m outta here for now. More blog-o-rama soon.
