What’s been going on?
Well it has been a loooong time since I last updated this blog. Sometimes life, moving, Christmas and Open University just get in the way of gaming. Boooooo Sucks!
Though I have been playing in the weekly RPG sessions, Vampire = Shitloads of d10 + Cool, Starship Troopers = Guns + Cool.
Hopefully this brand new start will lead to regular updates of the Drunken Goblin website.
So what’s new?
Well this year I wanted to try something new with our gaming group. I proposed each member run one shot adventure each week through March. I had tried a one shot session in December with a Christmas themed Gamma World adventure. Then the next session we had a few players who could not make it so Nicky ran a wicked one-shot Dark Heresy adventure.
MMMmm… facing off against a Genestealer and I accidently, “cough”, killed Kevin’s character. But really Kev! Who goes into hand to hand combat with a Genestealer with the rest of the team taking aim with an assortment of huge and extremely deadly weapons. Including a Bolt Pistols, it deserves the capital letters, with explosive rounds that I needed to fire…Ops!…sorry Kev. Then I felt REALLY bad when he gave my Starship Trooper character covering fire last night.
So back to my idea of one-shots. Everyone thought it was a good idea, it gives everyone the chance to DM a game and to try out different systems. The rules were simple:
- The adventure must last one session, running for approx. 3 hours
- Characters will be provided by the person running the adventure
- We can run any system we like
So far the following game systems have been borrowed or bought:
- Kevin has decided to run WFRP 3rd ED
- I nabbed Serenity
- Steve will be running Grimm Fairytales
- Chef has decided to purchase the new Deathwatch system
I’m looking forward to playing with the new systems and seeing what the guys come up with adventure wise. Let the adventure writing begin…
