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.

Tracy's HackMoor 07/20/2017 This Concludes Our Adventuring Season

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

Tomorrow's game will be another board game. I got a pre-publication revision of the latest Divine Right game to play test. I'll also be running that as an official sanctioned demo at the Guns of August convention in Newport News Virginia on 25-27 August.

Ə - Tracking

Dumping this here for now. Maybe I'll get around to cleaning it up later.

Tracking: Base target number of 10, check every Adventure Turn. Changing conditions (change in weather, terrain, etc.) triggers a new Turn

Tracy's HackMoor 2017/06/29 More Leveling Up With Kittens in a Blender

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

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

We skipped the Thursday before (June 22nd) as I was the yearly invitational "The Weekend" game convention in Lancaster PA.

This past week the Player for Grok showed up after a long absense yet the Player for Jacko was too tired from overwork, so we merely leveled him up.

We had some spare time afterward so we played the "Kittens in a Blender" card game.

I have forgotten the type of pizza as it has been two weeks.

I'm also going to skip a lot of detail, such as diarming traps, minor combats, and treasure takings, as it would make this too lengthy and difficult to remember.

Tracy's HackMaster 2017/06/08 More Leveling Up

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

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

We had a extra large meat lover's pizza substituting philly cheesesteak for pepperoni.

We had a quorum, but after an hour or so of small talk which was a total waste of time. We pegged on the idea of leveling up some of the NPCS. By 8:30PM I had figured we weren't going to run the dungeon this night, so we continued the leveling process.
