Okay so yet again I’m horrible at this. I never got the info for Battletech up, but then we only played a few more sessions before I realized that I couldn’t actually run the Clan Invasion since I don’t have the miniatures for it. Soooo that game went onto the back burner.
So after we finished up the last session of that game I talked things over with my wife and she was fine with returning to our table every other weekend. So we worked stuff out in such a way that I would run two alternating games – one that my step-son will play in on the weekends that he is here and on the other weekends when he is at his dad’s, I will run a different game that my wife will play in. Those games are Dragon Age, which will include my wife and an Old Republic Star Wars d6 game which will include my step-son.
And then the Holidays hit. We are one session into the Dragon Age game and haven’t even gotten character creation done on the Old Republic Star Wars game. Even as I wrote the paragraph above I came up with a better solution. Have one game where both my wife and step-son play (so play it on the weekends that he is here) and run it every other weekend and do board games and such on the off weekends to allow my creative batteries to recharge. This will only be until the Summer when I will continue with my AD&D campaign.
The more I think on it, running a game every other week will be better for me in the long run. It will give me extra time to plan events for the game, allow me time to work on stuff like the Altered Realities system and work on the rest of that AD&D campaign. I do hope to get to working on some of the Altered Realities system over the Holidays as well. I have a good idea for the combat system that I finally think I like.
So that is where I am at so far for my gaming. I will reinstate the d6 Star Wars game (two of the bios are up, I will endeavor to get the rest up shortly after the New Year when we start playing again) and run that every other week until Summer. I will talk to the rest of my group about this at some point over the next week.
Anyway, this is me signing off until after the New Year, have a safe and happy holiday season!
