Game Prep: Traveller, 4.20

With the way the previous session ended, half of the group are sequestered due to the trial and the other half are basically sitting on their butts. Unless I fast-forward through the trial elements (which I don’t want to do), that leaves half of the players just doing nothing. That simply won’t do. Thankfully, Eddy […]

Recap and Game Notes: Traveller, 4.19

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to almost 4 hours. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this session. I will admit that I was at least mildly worried since the “trial” portion of the adventure only involves half of the group – exactly half now that Mel […]

Game Prep: Traveller, Adventure 4 (Part 2)

A couple of minor adjustments and updates to my plan. The Trip I’ve decided to implement the “Spaceships Malfunctions” from Pyramid 3-103 en masse with the caveat that the engineer character – Buck – has been dealing with this sort of thing from the beginning of the campaign; it’s only now that we’re actually adding […]

Game Prep: Traveller, Adventure 4

With the conclusion of adventure 3, we’re moving into the next one this week which is going to take the PCs to Mora. I’m planning on basically breaking this down into a couple of intended sequences that basically boil down to: The Trip The Arrival The Trial The Holiday List Gala The Departure The Trip […]

Recap and Game Notes: Traveller, 4.18

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to almost 4 hours. As stated in the outline recap, I knew this was going to be more of an epilogue than a full-on session. To be honest, I actually thought this entire session was a disjointed mess, since there really […]

Father’s Day

This holiday is always kind of difficult for me principally for two reasons. First, my dad has been dead for a long time – almost 27 years – and I’d give almost anything to have another talk with him or watch another Atlanta Braves baseball game with him (even though I really don’t care much […]

Game Prep: Traveller, 4.18

So, with the PCs having successfully taken the corsair, adventure 3 is essentially over at this point. There are no real major elements remaining save “get Lord Mika off-planet and then back to Porozlo.” That said, the PCs still need to accomplish those tasks, so what I’m thinking of doing is just flowing directly into […]

Recap and Game Notes: Traveller, 4.17

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to almost 6 hours (!) As stated in the outline recap, Mel bowed out just as Loki returned, so our numbers didn’t really change. Ironically, the last two sessions had her playing Armin and suffering from microphone problems, and now that […]

Gaming Lows

So, I’ve reached that point in my Traveller game where I’ve become a little bored with GMing it. Clearly need a breather … although I wonder if it’s more that the adventure itself has become a slog? No, I think again that it’s me. I just need to power through this malaise and get on […]
