Gaming musings

Made new post for emeraldshadows. Hopefully this should stir up some play. I really ought to pay more attention to that game; there's not really enough players active to just leave them to their own devices. And when you throw in that it's probably the busy season for a number of people, it's been quiet for a while. Maybe things will pick up after finals crunch for the students and the holidays for the rest of us.

Am steadily plugging away at setting things up for my university-based LJ CtD game. I've got the communities set up, and a name for the game - The Fairgrove University Chronicles. Yeah, maybe it's derivative, but it works for me. And it's sort of a homage to Rowan. I've also decided on who the local fae rulers are - future versions of my & lostsatyr's WoD LARP Changeling characters. One of the privileges of being the GM. ;-) I figure I'll start the game after the holidays, and say that we'll begin with the new (spring) semester. Less chance of me getting confused about dates that way (something I learned the hard way with rowan_academy).

For Life & Liberty is going strong. I've got a new player, and possibly another one in the wings. Apparently word-of-mouth is worth something after all.

I really need to update the IC LJ for chasesthetruth, my Black Fury character in R's game. I have three (?) sessions' worth of notes to write up. *sigh* And I need to get a better grasp on her personality, dammit. Maybe I'm just too inhibited to be playing a Galliard, I dunno, but she's coming off rather...subdued. The only time she seems to come alive is when she's fighting something or arguing with somebody. *shakes head* I really think she could be a hell of a lot more, but she keeps getting eclipsed by the Shadow Lord who wants to hobnob with the rich and famous and his Corax companion, both of whom are being played by people who are louder than me.

Still waiting on some responses from lostsatyr's characters in 4life_n_liberty. I suspect he's been busy at work.

Off to have something warm to drink - it's cold here.

RE:CVX sucks
Just a warning... Code Veronica sucks. You run around, like, half of the game at half-health, and you're always looking for the elusive extra handgun rounds. Chris fares a little bit better than Claire, natch (he doesn't have to deal with whiny-whiny), but even he limps through the game. RE4 did at least one thing right - give the player lots of ammo and keep it coming.

Re: CVX sucks
Can't argue with your assessment from what I've seen so far. And the controls are much harder than what I'm used to too. I'm at the 2nd same point and in good health - but that's mostly because I never made it to the 2nd save point the first 2 times, so I've gotten better at that part. But I don't feel so incompetent any more, knowing that I'm not the only one to have Claire limping around holding her arm...

I try... really I do...


Can Charles be in the C:tD game? *runs and hides*

If you're serious about that, do you have a beginning sheet for him someplace?

Nah. I'll make something else. No one needs a richer-than-thou chick magnet dripping all over everything.

Maybe someone a bit... sturdier...

After holidays... excellent... excellent....

The sad part is that I have a better idea of what kind of mortal character to play than I do Changeling!
