Gobs of Gaming Goodness

CARP has a gameday coming up and Weekend in Gothic Earth is at the end of the month. My gaming schedule has accellerated almost out of control.  While I'm enjoying myself, I barely have time to breathe!

Friday night I ran the first half of a Living Death scenario ( Medicine Bones, very good!), with the second half on Monday night.  Saturday was a day-long slot zero for WiGE.  Keith Hoffman, husband of Our Dark Mistress (Claire, the campaign director) the author of the scenario (Medicine Quest, also a super scenario) drove up to run it for the Michigan contingent.  I'm proud to say that Michigan provides around half (sometimes more) of the GMs for WiGE, as well as a fair number of players.

I've ranted about the wonderfulness that is Living Death in this space before.  It's all role playing and it rocks.  Play it. Nuff Said.

Sunday I ran two scenarios for a relatively new, non-RPGA campaign called Legends of the Shining Jewel. It's a high fantasy D&D 3.5 campaign, and it's just a riot.  I've only played the first two scenarios (and run them once now as well), but I have to say that I'm very impressed with the style and quality.  There are lots of opportunites to role play, some politics and intrigue, and a fight or two (actually scaled for the party level, unlike the RPGA's lamentable Legacy of the Green Regent.  It's all Open Gaming Source material, and I think it's going to have legs.  Jae-bob says play it.

Tomorrow we playtest the October MSU Shadows scenario. kirkt68 is the author and GM, and it is also a huge amount of fun.  The characters are all White Hats -- no Heroes or Slayer.  We're all poor schlubs thrashing around trying to deal with the supernatural on the campus of Michigan State University.

My character is a terribly neurotic graduate student who is saddled with pretty much every psychic power there is. She sees dead people, she sees demons, she gets flashes from objects and people, and now she's involuntarily reading minds. Her closest friend is her cat Fitzhugh, though she's starting to bond with the rest of this unlikely batch of Scoobies.  It's great fun.

Thursday we play the Living Spycraft scenario (Winter of Discontent) so that there are GMs who have played it and can run it on the gameday. In Spycraft I play a snoop/fixer whose code name is Woodstock. She's short, skinny, has a shock of yellow hair in a color not found in nature, and a nose like a macaw.  In other words, she looks a great deal like Snoopy's long-time companion.

Saturday I'm helping out at Fortress Games with World Wide D&D Day till 5 pm, and then I'm off to Daggerford, Adam's home campaign, where I play a halfling mage with an affinity for wild magic and her sights set on becoming an archmage.

Sunday it's off to the Michigan Mythos Militia to run some Call of Cthulhu for my fellow cultists. I recently became a Missionary for Cthulhu, and will be running "Under the Greenwood Tree", set in the Dark Ages in Sherwood Forest. Heh. Heh. Heh. I'm running the same scenario, along with "The Mystery of April Snow" at U*Con in November, so this will give me a chance to work the kinks out.

Whew. I'm going to need a vacation from my time off! But I have to say... it's good to be in the center of so much gaming opportunity!
