Session played: 18.01.19, PCs active: Andrei, Toad & ‘K’ At Andrei's instigation, the Assembly decided to start a new project alongside the ongoing creation of the Museum and developing Cropland. Now they would also be working on a Pigsty! Naturally the first step was obtaining some pigs, and so it was back out into The Zone again, accompanied by the Stalker Krin, one … Continue reading Mutant Year Zero Campaign – Part 5: TPK Time?
Session played: 14.12.18, PCs active: Dink, Toad & 'K' Having brought the Elder back to the Zone in the last session, our Mutants sought to consolidate this session, opting not to begin any new projects but press on with those already started: the museum, Toad's statue and developing the cropland. 'K' worked on cobbling together an irrigation system for the cropland, moving this … Continue reading Mutant Year Zero Campaign – Part 4: Strangers Sighted
Session played 26.10.18 Ok, so it's taken a while to write this session up - in my line of work November and December are somewhat full on! This session picked up where the last left off. The Elder is still missing (session threat) and the Ark in turmoil as they come to terms with how to respond. … Continue reading Mutant Year Zero Campaign – Part 3: Life in The Zone
A few years ago I backed The Gods War, a new Gloranthan boardgame, on Kickstarter. I'd been close to backing Cthulhu Wars, but Greg Stafford's fantasy setting in this version pushed me over the edge. Ever since I've been waiting in eager anticipation to play - it's been a while, with various troubles befalling it, … Continue reading The Gods War – it’s been sighted!
This time of year it's all go! Sunday evening it's our church carol service and I'm just settling down to do some video editing and talk crafting with Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue' smoothly spinning from the record player. Seems the right vinyl of choice having sneaked in a chapter or two over breakfast of … Continue reading An Advent Kind of Blue
As you will have gathered from my previous posts, I'm a fan of Free League (Fria Ligan's) Mutant Year Zero tabletop rpg. It will come as no surprise then to gather that I'm excited by their Twitter post today - I'll be backing as soon as it drops! Get ready for the end of the … Continue reading Exciting Mutant Year Zero news!
Session played 14.09.18 In the previous post I reflected from a GM's perspective on the joy of character creation in Mutant Year Zero (MY0) and how through this quick process not only do you quickly develop flavoursome characters, each with their own genre defined niche and relationships between them, but also a description of the … Continue reading Mutant Year Zero Campaign – Part 2: Life in The Ark
As noted in my last blog post, I've recently started a Mutant Year Zero (MY0) campaign with my regular gaming group. This is something I've wanted to do for sometime having backed the game when it was kickstarted (I've backed everything else by Free League since, so impressed was I by the product and their … Continue reading Mutant Year Zero Campaign – Part 1: Reflections on Character Generation
Just realised that I haven't posted here at all this year! Useless. Must get back to it. Much of my posting this year has been on our church website: http://www.wormleyfreechurch.org.uk This has been significantly redeveloped over the year and now features much of my faith based online writing. It seems pointless to copy it here - … Continue reading Back to the Blog – Catching Up
I was a backer of this game on Kickstarter and am currently awaiting its delivery any day now. It was a fun campaign, and I really like the premise and am a great fan of co-op games. To tide me over, here's a review from the Dice Tower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1eN-h-Mn_c
