Vacation

Taking a plane to Florida tomorrow where I’ll be visiting some family for the week so updates here are so unlikely that they’re improbable.

Game Prep: The Aadkashli Cartel

GURPS Boardoom and Curia is a weird book for me. I really like the idea of an organization having what amounts to a statblock that the GM can look at to quickly determine what that org is immediately capable of as well as their numbers and general capabilities. So I like what they’re trying to […]

Game Prep: Porozlo System Details

So it is confirmed: I’ll be running a second Traveller game for my other gaming group at some point in the foreseeable future. As stated in the previous post about this, I very much want to try and get the feel of ‘The Expanse’ series, which necessitated figuring out the rest of the system specifics. The below […]

Game Prep: Traveller, Season 5

Based on my recap notes for the finale, It’s likely fairly obvious that I ended up being disappointed (principally with myself) with how the season ended because, IMO, it was too akin to me telling instead of showing, as well as a bit too much railroady … so I had an idea with how to […]

Traveller: Porozlo Vice

As stated before, my Saturday run on Traveller has come to a conclusion with a (IMO) just okay season finale. It’ll be a while before it comes back around to me so I’m turning to other things (even though I have been doing some brain-storming for season 5 and have some really nifty ideas that […]

Recap and Game Notes: Traveller, 4.22

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to just under 4 hours. As stated in the GM Notes on the recap, I was only partially satisfied, though I suspect that was probably due to my sense of nothing but chaos. I had an alternate ending in mind that, […]

Game Prep: Traveller, 4.22 (Finale)

The previous session ended with the arrival of the Ine Givar terrorists and with the PCs pretty much scattered all over the place – three of them (Buck, Haank and Sae) are all close to the “principal,” Sir Korbin, while the other three are split up with Armin hiding out in the kitchen, Eddy in […]

Recap and Game Notes: Traveller, 4.21

The TL;DR outline recap can be found here if one doesn’t want to listen to just over 4 hours. It figures. I was so frustrated with the previous session that naturally I ended this one very pleased. The narrative was intended to be simple: Aftermath of the shooting of Adric Mason by Valerie Vaskor. Spiirs […]

Game Prep: Traveller, 4.21 – Ine Givar Terrorist

So, as stated previously, I need stats for my Ine Givar terrorists coming up. So I spun up the following. I used the Bioterrorist Activist from Bio-Tech as a basis, then tweaked it bit to fit my needs better. Some of skill selection may seem odd at first glance, but everything is for a reason. […]

Game Prep: Traveller, 4.21

We ended the previous session with Valerie Vaskor shooting herself after killing Adric Mason. As stated in my recap notes, I’d intended to say that she shot him but killed herself, but I got my words jumbled around so the inverse happened. Based entirely on some of the player reactions to Valerie shooting herself, however, […]
