Googling the Net



Last night, after my own great face to face game I decided to take a look at a game I was invited to by Mark Knights.  It was a game hosted on hangouts using the Roll20 virtual table top.  Although I was only lurking and watching the 'On Air' version I saw a little of the Roll20 action, what was more fun, the game and participants.  It reminded me a lot of when I played Traveller and the awesome antics the players would get up to in going about and exploring their Universe.  I have to admit the look on Mark's face sometimes reminded me of some of my own 'inner turmoil' when refereeing the game as well as the good-natured ribbing between everyone of my own experiences way back when.  So if you have the time I would strongly recommend that you hook up with someone who is playing and running an On Air of their game that interests you, its almost like being there and if nothing else you get a couple of good laughs and cheap entertainment for a few hours.  Well done guys! Long live the crew (hopefully!!!) of the LarkSong!

Cheers

Tempus Fugit




Well here I am almost halfway through 2013 and with nary an entry since late January. Well life has made it difficult to think let alone blog so that's my excuse and I'll stick with it.
Anyway the various gaming groups have been going through their evolutions and at present we stand paused to start afresh with the three main groups - Barra rebooted two sessions ago, returning to where it all started on the island of Skagin. Keryl likewise returning to the Berris Coast and environs, yet to start - the winters bugs are winning! (lol), and the Wednesday night face to face group is rebooting their Greyhawk game after a few months of trying out Basic D&D.
My project of producing a small Fanzine , thank you to Darth and Jason for your contributions , is slowly slowly crawling into the light of day.
On another note I am slowly making my way through the next net experience known as Google Hangouts, Plus et al in the hope of connecting to a wider gaming experience (yeah I know I'm years behind everyone else but better late than never aye!)

Well that's all for now, hope to see you sooner than later
Game on!
Cheers
Steve
