This weblog has certainly suffered from a lack of attention since I posted about TBR, but hopefully I’ll be able to get it going again at some point. That may not happen in the near future though, as I’m heading off into the wilds of the Adirondacks later this week, and then there’s Worldcon at the start of September, and then it’s off to Toronto for Ambercon North not long afterwards. I’ll try to at least get in a post or two here and there though.

For now, I guess I’ll just give a quick update on my gaming activities.


I’m currently in one face-to-face game, Lou’s Against the Tide of Darkness, which is a D&D 3.5 campaign. My character, Marcellus, has just started in on a new prestige class, Fortune’s Favored Few, after unwittingly acquiescing to right some things on behalf of his goddess.

I’m also in one pbem game, Strangers Still to Come, a more or less systemless game run by my friend Jennifer. In that one I play Lord Graeme Dreyhaven, who has sort of blindly thrust himself into the middle of all sorts of politics and intrigue, managing to get well in over his head without actually realizing it. At least not yet.


I’m working on an idea for a Buffy game which will be set in a near-future dystopian version of New York City, and right now I’m planning on it only having one player (who will play a Slayer). It’ll be my first shot at running a one-on-one ftf game, and my first try at a campaign since back in college, so we’ll see how it goes.


I recently bought a pdf copy of Jared A. Sorenson’s InSpectres, and it looks to be as good as everything I’d heard about it indicated it would be. Now I just need to figure out how to run an Amber/InSpectres crossover game, so I can run it at an Ambercon!

I’m also hoping to soon have copies of Matt Snyder’s Dust Devils and Nine Worlds (his new one), which my friend Lou has kindly offered to pick up for me at Gencon. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll likely just order them both anyway.
