My gaming day on Saturday:
09:00-12:00 Merchants and Marauders, the definitive Pirate board game, and the only game I ever gave “10” on BGG.
13:00-16:00 Pathfinder Society: Rescuing a wayward heiress (a bit like Paris Hilton?) from her evil father.
19:00-22:00 DUNGEON WORLD! My first face to face DW game as a player. One of the guys in our regular group (he is 12th grade in high school) decided he wanted to GM. I did not even know if he read the rules, so I went with slight reservations… Then he opened the game with: “You find yourself in a forest. It is high summer but you are cold. There is frost in your hair and in your clothes. You lie on a bed of broken ice. You remember nothing – not even your name.” OK, I was hooked immediately. The story proceeded from there as a mystery as the characters tried to find out who they were and ended in an abandoned castle fighting a werewolf demon thingy that could summon darkness like a cloud of smoke and run upside down on the ceiling. Scary bastard – he did 2d12 damage and had a few of us piddling our pants.
DW is the first RPG he ever played, and this was his first time as GM.
Thomas, if you read this, WELL DONE! WE’RE COMING BACK FOR MORE!
