Being social again... [Dec. 20th, 2006|12:05 pm]

Well, since coming back from Seattle I haven't been the most social guy in the world. Last night Katie and I went to Misty Mountain and painted some minis.

Now usually we do this sort of thing at home. It's our usual "after work relaxing chill-out routine". We decided to try and get out more and actually interact with humans again, so we gathered our kit and trucked it to Madison.

Of course it was a smaller turnout than expected; holidays looming as they are I guess it makes sense.

Got to me a couple guys. We didn't converse much; I rarely do when painting, but it was nice actually getting to say "I went out and did something" for a change. I think Katie and I are going to make it a regular-thing.

Now to just get some gaming going again...

Got Game? [Feb. 7th, 2006|09:47 am]

So, I've decided I'm going to host a poker game. Probably not a 'tournament' so to speak, but something similar. I already have one guest coming, I just would 3-4 more if I can get 'em. ;)

So, if you, or your friends, are interested in a poker night or just a game, please lemme know. I'm wanting to host a T1500 or T1000 texas holdem game.

(I bought a bunch of poker chips on sale and need to justify their existence) :D

What time are we meeting up?
Jason, I need you to post directions. If you could have Ed shoot me a basic overview of his character that would be helpful.

Genevieve, we can do CharGen Saturday afternoon pre-game (earlier I'll be helping Clayton move Jen's stuff).

Cool?

SR4 Action!!! [Oct. 27th, 2005|03:19 pm]

Weekend after next. Nov 5th/ 6th (whichever day [evening] is most convenient for everyone), the next episode of the SR4 game will take place.

When we last left off, our intrepid band of operatives had taken their quarry to a safehouse.
Their detainee was none other than one of the mega-actresses starring in the current box-office smash Fox Force Five (and her body double).
Of the five superstars, three were kidnapped by terrorists. The one the adventurers bagged was also the girlfriend of the Johnson that hired them.
On the run with a kidnapped starlet, the heroes find out things are not what they seem, and they are in WAY over their heads.

Tune in next episode when we find out what separates Shadowrunners from terrorists.

[Thus far we have as PCs two Street Samurai and a Smuggler/ Rigger and an NPC Magician]
[Let me know if anyone is interested in joining in. We can link up and square you away with a character before gametime]

So, after a few more days of thought, I think I'm going to try to run a Space 'western' sort of game.

Cowboy hat optional.

Much merriment... [Sep. 8th, 2005|09:57 am]

Last night we had an impromptu madtowngotgame gathering at Old Chicago to welcome a newcomer to the area and do some face-to-face interaction.

Present were the lovely thestormcellar, The great haberdasher we all know and love amanofhats, My beautiful wife katie_preston, The mighty cazmonster and our newest addition downwood.

We talked of games and convention experiences. We talked of really slow wargames, and games that truly suck as well as relating humorous memories of games past.

My parting shot is this memory which I will carry with me for a while:
Half-orc (barbarian?) with a gnome riding on his back...
"Who run Bartertown?"
