After over a year of very little gaming – nothing other than a half-dozen online sessions of AD&D – I’m about to jump back into the RPG pool in a big way. (This is primarily the result of spending the next 11 months in Toronto. Because of work commitments, travel, and general pathetic laziness on my part, I never got any ‘in person’ gaming going in Chicago over the past two years.)
Lawrence Whitaker (co-author of RuneQuest 6, among many other things) is hosting a few gamers at his place this weekend. Unsurprisingly, we likely will play a couple of RQ6 games: a return to the epic Young Kingdoms campaign that Lawrence GM’ed three years ago, as well as something in his forthcoming Mythic Britain setting. Also in the queue is a session of Trail of Cthulhu (which I’ve owned for years, but never played). I plan to run either a session of Call of Cthulhu (7th edition) or Dungeons & Dragons (5th edition).
After this weekend I hope to write up some of my impressions of these games, especially the ones that I haven’t played or run yet (I already have played and have a very positive opinion of RQ6).
Moreover, I am looking forward to returning this blog to some semblance of life over the next year. (It also needs a thorough updating, with respect to links, layout, etc. It looks so 2009!)
