[2018-05-17] HackMaster 4e Part 1: Intro to the Player's Guide

Opening the book and seeing the date 2001 gives me an odd feeling of how that shouldn’t seem so long ago and yet the battle of HackMaster does seem well in the past. It’s a game that ran its course and veered off in a completely different direction than where it initially travelled. It ended. Debate away.

The inside cover has ads for the GMG, HoB (over 1600 creatures), Quest for the Unknown and Little Keep on the Borderlands.

Games are on Thursday nights sometime after 6:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

We had an extra large sausage and mushroom pizza. Once was not enough and some of the Players ordered pepperoni on their own, because we don't normally order it due to one player's personal phobia.

Map attached. Includes prior sessions on this level.

[Anime Review] Sword Art Online

SAO takes about 5 episodes to get going.

SAO is a Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game and the cartoon is about people playing that game. It touches on Human relationships, action, drama, romance, and how a writer can screw up a good idea.

I loved the novel “Dream Park” which would make you think I’d immediately love SAO but it’s just not that good, for five episodes. It lacks the charm, depth and humour evident in Danmachi (Familia Myth/Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?).

Second attempt at this post, first attempt seems to have disappeared.

We had a Spinach and Chicken pizza with fresh lumps of Mozzarella.

There is an image attachment to this post that the email version didn't get, at map of this level that they have explored so far. Due to black and white format, areas of shadow not explored are indistinguishable from solid walls.

Volume 6:Raiders of Gor

This book started pretty slow, but turned into a swashbuckling-action-oriented feast! It was reminiscent of the first book and I really enjoyed it for the most part. I find in almost all of the Gor books I start out a bit bored while they set the story up, then get hooked when the meat of it starts.

[XCOM2-Spoilers] Vigilo Confido (Easy-Ironman)

I blow the time to restablish contact with the Western U.S. after the game tells me I can't. Vigilo Confido!

I gain three potential target sites. Eastern U.S. to counter the Alien Cypher dark event to gain a scientist; New Mexico to counter the Alloy Padding dark event to gain a Grenadier; Western U.S. to counter a hidden event to gain 84 Intel. The last being the only one that isn't labelled Easy. I take it.

Back to the usual, a meat-lovers pizza with the pepperoni removed and Philly-cheese steak substituted.

​PART 1.

The party had just accepted the surrender of the surviving two of four Goblins. They were about to attack Goblin El Jefe inside the next room when they were annoyed by the Priestess of Id raising up the Goblin dead and healing the surviving Goblin's wounds.
