Its been over three weeks, it seems, since I last got a chance to sit at a game table. It has been a weird little break, since real life obligations sometimes pull us away from the table.
Have been mulling a lot over where to take the Startreader storyline in this period. I have batted some interesting ideas around, even thought about incorporating some elements from a book I have been working on a bit. I am kind of wondering how some of them would pan out.
Also, found myself guild-less recently. Not that I did anything wrong, exactly. I just found that the guild I was in had become pretty dead in short order. The Guildmaster was more or less KIA, people were joining and then vanishing, and the only guildee I saw much of in my travels was my wife, and considering we play together, that isn’t as much of an accomplishment as one might think.
Good news, though. I finished up Act 2 of the Imperial Agent story. Got another character up to level 53. I plan on putting up some character sheets on both of them, plus putting up some ‘not-exactly-pertinent to Bioware’s TOR” fiction involving the both of them. Might be fun. I am sure the Chiss Asekio, or my thuggish Sith Warrior could get themselves into a lot of trouble in their own, special ways.
We will see where pen and imagination take things. Until then, maybe I will get to roll some dice, bust some heads, and do the whole Barbarian thing again.
One of my activities of late has been indulging once again in an MMO. When TOR was first announced, I quickly put in a pre-order, and played for a couple of months beyond that. After that point, I got wrapped up in other games- such as Star Trek Online, and left the game for some time.
With the building anticipation of The Force Awakens approaching, I found myself thinking back to the Old Republic. Since TOR had went to Free to Play some time ago, I piddled around with the game for a while, and found myself getting back into the swing of things. A subscription shortly followed. after a bit of poking and prodding to get my wife to join with me.
Since then, I have been having a blast. There is certainly something enjoyable about playing a thuggish Sith Warrior, or a Bond-esque Imperial Agent. Over a few weeks, I brought my first character on a new server to level 50, and followed up my Warrior by rolling a Chiss Agent: Asekio.
With two solid characters, a new guild, and a companion to quest with, I set forth to make my mark on Jedi Covenant.
One of the thing that I have been first considering putting onto this blog for your consideration are a collection of old stories that I wrote in the past. Most of it is kind of rubbish writing, but I figure that it might be worth a chuckle or two to some of you kind folks. I figured I would start by posting up one of the very first of my ‘good’ little narratives from back a few years ago: “Cold Reception”.
Be sure you wipe your shoes on the rug just outside the door please.
No, but seriously, I do want to thank you for coming and checking out my little blog. I am a very novice campaign writer of sorts. Well, it would be better to say that I am a novice writer. I have been writing off and on for some time, but it wasn’t until recently that I began bringing things together into a coherent whole. I would have a little story here, or a little narrative there. The trouble I always ran into was that I very rarely managed to come up with anything I was very happy with here.
So, I eventually figured that I might share some little tidbits here and there, just for the fun of it. A lot of my work is not necessarily stuff that will see the light of this blog- either because of its quality, or lack therein. Some other things on here may be parts of personal little campaign worlds I am working on at the time- an encounter here or a scenario there. Sometimes, it might just be a random little musing, or an off-the-cuff thought.
Well, in any case, I hope that some of you will enjoy what you read here.
