My Rise of the Runelords Pathfinder group had an awesome 12-hour session this past Saturday! There was one character death, and also a really scary moment where all of us had a strong suspicion that a TPK was mere moments away. I really hope to have the stars align in such a way that I have both the motivation and the time available to post a nice recap. I don't know what it is, but gaming session recaps are something I have always struggled with. I don't know if it's because they can be so long (especially for a 12-hour session), because I'm afraid I'll get something wrong or embellish too much, or if I think it's a waste of time because no one reads them (I tend to skip over other peoples' game recaps in google reader myself, and I know for the most part my players don't care about them). Probably a little bit of all of those things. I'd definitely love to hear other peoples' thoughts on the matter. Are they a waste of time? Any tips for keeping up with them?
This weekend, I'll be playing in ChicagoWiz's Classic D&D Marathon at UGG in Grayslake. I'm super-pumped about that. I rarely ever play, and am looking forward to the chance to see another DM exercising his craft. I plan to stay as long as I can and try to stay alive as long as possible, but we'll see how it goes.
Then, at the end of the month, I will have GaryCon. This will be my first gaming convention ever, and it looks like it's going to be an awesome one. Here are the games I'm signed up for so far:
A Matter of Minutes, OD&D White Box, run by Tim Kask
Alternate VIP Selection
Mystery at the Acaeum, AD&D 1E, run by Frank Mentzer
General Selection 1
Sailors on the Starless Sea, Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG
Learn to Hack!, Hackmaster Basic Tutorial
General Selection 2
Temple of the Mountain God, Rules Cyclopedia D&D
Staff of the Serpent Master, OD&D White Box
General Selection 3
DGS Presents: Cycle of Consumption, Call of Cthulhu d20
I signed up for lots of games I've never played, and I also hope to get into some Gamma World or Metamorphosis Alpha action if at all possible.
