Finally time for some GenCon After Action Review. :)
I pretty much enjoyed all of my games, to a greater or lesser degree. We played in a QAGS (Quick Ass Game System) slot where we played sixties spies with super powers, a post French Revolution Cthuthlu LARP, a couple of slots of Arcanis and the NASCRAG tournament.
I was a little disappointed in the Arcanis, which makes me sad. One of the mods reminded me greatly of one we had previously played, except that I enjoyed the other module much more. Moue.
NASCRAG is a tournament style D&D game (3.5 at the moment), with a focus on puzzles, roleplaying and general silliness. The first round was at least one hundred tables, down to twenty for round two and ten for round three. My team (SugarCaffeineCereal!!! This somehow morphed to SuperCaffeinatedCereal.) made it to round two by the skin of our teeth - we were Alternate Team One, and at least one team didn't show up and a few others were missing people and got mushed together. For our second round, our judge was the coordinator, and he was an awesome GM, one of the best I've had. We were on much more solid ground getting into round three, but failed to place in the top five at the end. Still, not bad for a team with four people who hadn't played NASCRAG before. Oh, we also one a prize for best team name, and I got a prize for best player of one of the characters. (A Gypsy Sorceress with some vision problems.)
I didn't enjoy this Cthuthlu LARP as much as I did the one I was in last year, in part because we had something like twice as many players. I also felt like we were much less likely to "win" at this scenario.
Beating my head against a Wrath Seven Deadly Sins story for Loghain. I know what I want to happen. He's just staring at me in the back of my head going "You want me to get to a screaming anger over this? I mean, yes, angry, but WRATH? Eh..." *sigh*
Civil Campaign Chapter Five (and parts of six) are definitely all in my head though, and will hopefully come out to play soon. I just want to get the Wrath story done first.
Alistair: Patience. I have some ideas, but nothing concrete yet.
And, finally, today is my tenth anniversary. Oh time, how you fly. :) Yes, I'm pretty darn happy with my fellow geek of a husband, even if he's going to run off to Law School soon. *more sigh*
