Tracy's HackMoor 2017/10/08 Rescue From the City of Brass

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

Once again last week's pizza we we had a Philly Steak with fresh Mozzarella (no other meats).

Because my Player's finished this session early, next session will be another board game night. I need time to plan player options. By the way, the previous board game was "Ticket To Ride". I may run this again on Thursday.

Tracy's HackMoor 2017/09/21 Into the City of Brass

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

Last week's pizza we we had a Philly Steak with fresh Mozzarella (no other meats).

Because Friday night is my month-end closing, Thursday's game will be a board game (I need my beauty sleep), depending on the number of Players: 5 or less: Ticket to Ride. (Rail Baron "light"); 6 even: Rail Baron (sudden death); 7 even: Old Civilization, (the only 7 player board game I can think of).

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

This week's pizza was the usual staple of a Meat Lover's pizza with the Pepperoni out and Philly Steak added. Suggestions anyone?

Tracy's HackMoor 2017/09/07 Consolidated Since 2017/07/20

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

This is a consolidated report over several weeks. We did not do very much due to various illness, absences, and the fact is we are between adventures.

++++ START OF SESSION(S) ++++

The party started the next few sessions with administrative matters. Since it was the end of the adventure, they decided to cash in their chips (shares).

Volume 5: Assassin of Gor - What in tarn-ation?!

Immediately this one was better than Nomads, and thank goodness for that. This was reminiscent of the first two books, full of adventure and action. I really enjoyed the journey and the prose was pretty good this time.

There were some twists and turns in the story but nothing you don't see coming from a pasang away. I was moved by some of the conflicts the characters faced and got quite attached to some minor characters. There was one surprise I didn't expect, they certainly fooled me there.

Running an Old Online Minicomputer Text Game

Typical Island

I'm willing to bet few, if any read my the URL for my byline. But Today is my once a year posting for one of the text based games that I manage. EMPIRE5.

Tracy's HackMoor 2017/08/10 No HackMaster Last Night

Or any other game last night. I'm out of town.

To summarize this week's report, I had an excellent lunch on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood with an old friend and author at a French restaurant called the "Le Petit Four".

She had Steamed Fresh Mussels in a white sauce and I had the Spinach Quiche with mushrooms.

We both had Flan for dessert.

Tracy's HackMoor 2017/08/03 Divine Right Playtest

I'm doing a pre-publication demo of the latest edition of Divine Right at the Guns of August Convention at the Virginia War Museum August 25-27, 2017. 9285 Warwick Blvd. Newport News, Virginia 23607

Expect to run the game on the Saturday afternoon time slot (after lunch). Let's say, 1PM will run to the bitter end.

Since I'm running this demo, this night we did a small play test with my gaming group. There was one item worthy of note:

One guy had the Trolls. He had one ally with the personality that allows only one unit per set up space.

[Book Review] The Moon Pool by A. Merritt ~Appendix N~

' Appendix N Readings

    The Moon Pool
    ~Abraham Merritt

I had trouble starting this book. The negative reviews kept turning me away. Usually they revolved around the book being dated because current knowledge ruined the plot and while it may have been good in an age of exploration, that time is over. I also struggled with the introduction and the first few pages.
