Metropolis … Or Not Interested, Thanks

DC & WB have announced their intent to do a Superman prequel series centered around Lois and Lex called Metropolis. I guess they like what Gotham has been doing and want more of that. Me? I love Superman and his mythos but have always considered Lois Lane as the least interesting character in his supporting […]

Game Prep: Traveller Campaign

As I was working on the previous post – the one about prepping for 4.03 – it occurred to me that it might be a good idea to go into a little more detail about some of my overall campaign plots. Some of this is more in depth than others and, obviously, some may change […]

Recap and GM Notes: Traveller 4.02

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to 3 and a half hours. Overall, I was left fairly satisfied with how the game played out but naturally, there were some issues I wasn’t wholly satisfied with, not to mention some positively blatant mistakes on my part.

Work Woes (aka “First World Problems”)

At my job, I’m primarily the QA guy – ostensibly, I check our software before we release it, hoping to minimize the inevitable bugs – but I’m also the backup support dude who handles the email and phone calls when the primary guy (Jim) is out. Last week, Jim took Wednesday to Friday off for […]

Traveller Characters and Subplots

Recap and GM Notes: Traveller 4.01

Outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to 3 and a half hours. So, I assumed GM duties for our Traveller campaign this Saturday (1/20/18) and my first task was resolving the cliffhanger that the previous GM left us in. Overall, I was left fairly satisfied with how the game […]

Blade Runner 2049

So, I watched this movie yesterday – never got around to it when it was in the theaters – and … it kind of bored me. I have relatively fond memories of the original although admittedly, I haven’t watched it in a long time, but this flick was just relentlessly dull to me. It was […]

GM Duties Resuming…

So next Saturday (1/20), I’ll be taking over the reins for our ongoing GURPS Traveller game. Whee… One player down, but that’s fine. Probably for the best, though I’m going to have to figure out how to write her out in such a way that she can show back up should circumstances warrant it (e.g., […]
