Across the River

I took a walk this lunchtime, to a place I’d never been before. I walked to the park and crossed the river, reading my book as I went, then followed the river. I’d heard that there was an outdoor gym down that way and I was curious to take a look at it, but I’d never visited.

That walk was magical, and I want to put it down in writing before I forget.

GM’s Blog: Murder & Torture for Fun & Profit

I got an interesting look into the minds of my players last night.

The group has been recruited by the arch-chancellor of the university they sometimes work for to investigate rumours that a salty old fisherman has dredged up an artefact from Lost Valsheim. If this is true it would be a discovery of monumental importance and of course there is much excitement. The salt has been talking about his discovery in the local tavern (the Winking Maiden) and it is imperative that the group gets to him before their rivals do.

GM’s Blog – Union Dues (like) Game – Session 4

Last night’s session went well and I’m still enjoying the superhero fun very much. I’m beginning to weave multiple of the Issues chosen by the characters together and forming them into a coherent narrative (even if sometimes logical consistency suffers to a degree due to the improvised nature of what I’m doing).

GM’s Blog – Union Dues (like) Game – Session 3

If you’re just joining us you can read about the first session here or if you need to catch up the last session is here.

Last week the group finally rendezvoused in Baghdad to try and track down the Metahuman Jihad. In the closing minutes of the previous session Blue Sun found a minion of the terrorists and tracked him back to their lair. Flashbang was stranded outside Baghdad in a minefield and started to make his way to the city and The Purist and Jed & Harvey were wandering around the streets in their cunning burqa disguises while they waited.

GM’s Blog – Union Dues (like) Game – Session 2

The blog for session 1 is here.

As you may recall, last week’s session ended neatly with the group heading off for some rest and relaxation following a job well done. We ramped gently up into this week’s session with a bit of a recap on what they were doing during a week’s rest period and then I threw them into an ongoing disaster.

GM’s Blog: Fated Mass Effect Parts 1 & 2

Greetings all. I’m running a game of “Mass Effect” in the Fate Core system for the university’s Easter break. I was going to just post about it on the Google+ community, but then I remembered that + is a somewhat transient medium and that all posts are eventually lost, like tears in rain.

So here’s how the game has been going so far…
