Bad Blogger

Yeah, I’ve done an absolutely terrible job of blogging over the last week which is partially laziness and partially nothing to say. I’m playing in two fantasy games right now – one is Pathfinder where I’m playing a Fighter/Cavalier/Chevalier who is in charge of the realm (we’re playing through the Kingmaker adventure path) and the other is GURPS Banestorm where I’m playing a Ritual Path Magic caster who is also a war-leader … and the guy in charge of the realm (Castle Defiant). So since I’m not running the game, not a lot to say.

Work continues (albeit very slowly) with the GURPS Traveller: The Verge campaign – right now, I’m still trying to sort of figure out how to best chart the in-system travel stuff. Ideally, I’d like to be able to rip off that Utzig stuff but use my own data … but the problem is that I don’t actually know where to start. I suppose I could (and this is what I’m leaning toward) is actually reaching out to the Utzig guy to see if he could make his code available …

Apart from that, though, I’ve really slacked off with the world-building stuff and need to get back on it.

Unrelated to the above, I’ve started playing this game Phantom Doctrine which is kind of like a stealth X-COM (where avoiding the firefight is more important than killing everyone on the battle map) and thus far, I’m kind of liking it. It’s set in the ’80s so I’m sort of hoping to be able to steal some ideas from it for The Verge…
