Goings-On Around the Tower:

A slow creep back to action ...

  • The one campaign I am running, Wrath of the Righteous for Pathfinder,  is finally getting back on track this month after being on hold since March
  • The one campaign I am playing, Kingmaker for Pathfinder, has also been taking a break but is getting back on track this month
  • Apprentice Red, Official College Student of the Tower is finally embracing the full college experience and is planning to start up a campaign on campus. It's likely to be Pathfinder as well, probably the Emerald Spire, because I have a fair amount of supporting material for it that he can borrow. 
It's a little funny that I've gone this Pathfinder-intensive. I like the game fine, but 5-6 years ago I was as  done with 3rd edition as one could be. The last couple of years it has somehow turned into my main game.

I do intend to use some of those other books on my shelves. Most likely candidates: Savage Worlds, Mutants and Masterminds, ICONS, Spirit of 77, FATE, or some flavor of Star Wars. I have ideas for all of them, and all of them are good candidates for a one-shot game to break things up. That's also all everyone seems to have time to do right now anyway. 

More to come!

I'm always impressed by how many games you can juggle at once.

I don't want to oversell it - that's running one game and playing in one game regularly and then trying to work in some time with some other games where we can. That's actually a lower level than I've had in some recent times but it's what I can manage right now.

One good thing is that with a pretty stable group of players I can dust off something from a few years ago and play a sesdion or two without having to go through a full start-up process.
