What did you play this summer and what you are hungry to play in the fall?
We took some time off of the Burning Skype Orc Campaign
but now that we are back at it, it feels like the final act. The Orc King's empire is showing signs of strain and we all can feel that it is just a matter of time before the Orc King and the Lord-Slayer once the humble orc known as The Named and He Who Slays for the Named will fight to the death.
The PTA game at Gen Con was just splendid. We all got better at navigating PTA's stakes setting, not over-setting it, just stating enough in the set-up so that the narrative control given to the high card was meaningful. Introducing a strong female character in Princess Solo amped things up and allowed me, as the Producer to do kick my players in the Issues.
We got to play Misspent Youth
when Rob visited. We made up a really wince-worthy fast food corporation called Murdah-Burger that commodified hip-hop culture and sold it back to the hood via cheese-burgers. It was awful to behold. The best character of the bunch, to my mind, was Bret's. Bret always manages to break my heart with kick-ass characters.
His character, Crunk-Dawg, was a corporate indentured servant, bought as a child to make up for generational debt from his forefathers.
My gaming schedule lightened up over the summer quite a bit but now I'm hungry to get back at it. Darkpages and Houses of the Blooded are calling to me. Darkpages is up this Friday.
