One True RPG

Many gamers seem (according to what I read on the Internet) to have that one game. The one game that fits right for them as the go-to game.

I don't.

I remember having them; two to be specific. From the 70's through somewhere around 2000 or so it was OAD&D. After that it was Lejendary Adventure.

At some point in the last few years I've started searching again.

D&D 5e

Well, D&D 5e is out. The basic rules as well as a starter box. Necromancer Games is already jumping in and trying to get three books out before the core books and other publishers do the same. Monsters, spells, and adventures. Apparently the legality is being kept hush hush and we have no certainty what WOTC will do as far as licensing yet.

The new version of the Eldritch RPG is in process. A reprint of the 1e Metamorphosis Alpha game is incoming. Castles & Crusades has undergone a major reprint and should be out by the Winter.

Bridges

I celebrated Canada Day twice and Independence Day once.

One of the things I always notice during the Yank's celebration is the positive vibes the Canadians send across the way. There are fireworks on both sides and it strikes me as a nice way to keep the connection between what is essentially, cousins on different paths; keeping the bridges that connect us alive.

Write a little each day

Well, I don't have any specific inspiration today, nor will I actually add an entry each day. I have two other blogs to keep going, so a couple times a month may be about right for me.

C3K: Final Exam - Tough Love.

Ah, this was a fitting finale to the first act. We have learned much about Sally's House in these short three chapters.

I do start wondering if this Mary is indeed the same Mary I read about many, many moons ago in Callahan's Secret. There are certainly some other familiar faces in the crowd. Mostly, I look forward to more puns. God blesses bad puns.

C2K The House - Just Desserts?

After reading this chapter, I wonder if the Callahan books were partly responsible for my core eclectic nature, or if my core eclectic nature allowed me to truly enjoy these tales...

C1K The Lady - Manners!

I had almost forgotten how much I like Spider Robinson's prose. He turns a phrase well and the scene becomes clear in my mind. I even find the weirdness believable and very, very settling.

[spoiler]...if people wanted to walk their werebeagles here it was none of my affair.[/spoiler] was my first audible guffaw. It's a sudden turn like this that creates a unique charm to Robinson's characters.

The Dance

For the first time we rented a hall to practice our ballroom dancing.

It's been awhile and I'm still recovering from surgery on my leg but I am eager to move forward.

It was bumpy at first but we ran through everything we knew. It was fun to dance however I think we'll enjoy it more when we start adding new moves. Perhaps 3-4 per practice session?

Sleep

It's hard to get used to new sleep habits, especially when it comes to sharing a bed.

There's the extra movement and noise as well as lost space to sprawl out. You may feel worried about being a bother and make yourself uncomfortable. You may have different preferences for sheets and heat. You may not be used to another person touching you or draping themselves over top of you. I'm sure there are more things people can list that are concerns...

What You Missed

Hi there,

I am testing this out as a collaborative content and blogging platform. The usage here will start with a two person book club between myself and Archergirl.

We have previously completed two books:

Out Of The Silent Planet by CS Lewis
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald

We had a good time going through those books together and the next book on the plate is:

Callahan's Lady by Spider Robinson
