Oops....I got busy and have forgotten to update in a while.
Recap: Turned 50 last week. Went to a Pub and participated in a trivia contest. Worked and continue to work on wrapping up the school year. Gamed a little bit.
Speaking of games, last Friday I ran Boot Hill for a second time. However, because of the high demand every free moment, I didn't get to prep until literally the few hours before hand. I had forgotten most of the rules and I needed to remember the rules because I had to teach 2 people how to play. So, long story short, I made up stuff as I went along and we all had a pretty good time. The characters were hired by the town of Brimstone to be city marshals to restore law & order when the town boomed because of a silver mine hitting big in the hills and the railroad deciding to come through town. The "module" I used was from an old Dragon magazine and it had a great table for rolling up random "offenses" for the marshals to handle. They dealt with a disturbing the peace, a manslaughter case, and a bank robbery. Next time (whenever that is), we'll have a follow-up on one of the robbers that got away and have the circuit judge come through town.
This coming Friday, I'm running a group through Matt Finch's Tomb of the Iron God using Searchers of the Unknown. I did some more research on the rules and found a compendium which applied the rules to all sorts of genres. I also found a really nice character sheet which explains the game well also. Looking forward to more door removal and gonzo gaming.
Well, still have a stack of labs and tests to grade. More later.
