Time for pagan traditions

December 22, 2009 Leave a comment

It’s been a busy month both in gaming and real life too.

RPGs

Our 4e campaign has been marching on quite steadily. My cleric just reached the 6th level. I still have some doubts about the 4e system as anything else but miniature wargame. The more I read about Hackmaster though the more convinced I become, of it being the game for me. But gaming for me is after all about meeting friends and having a good time so I can bear gaming with 4e rule set too.

Boardgames

I have not had much time to play face to face boardgames this month but I have been closely involved with playtesting Ed Beach’s upcoming game The Virgin Queen. It’s a sequel to his wonderful history lesson Here I Stand. So far it has been very interesting experience and the game itself is perhaps even more diabolical struggle between diplomacy, military and religious powers. I am very excited about the game.

But now it is soon time to celebrate some age old pagan ceremonies that are veiled in christian shrouds these days. And most importantly enjoy the excitement and happiness glowing on the kids’ faces 🙂

Merry Christmas!

I’ll return to Hackmaster after Christmas… 😉

Enter the keep

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Welcome to my keep, all of you curious people reading this. My intention is to write something about my gaming hobby and opinions here at least once a week. Generally I play role-playing games once a week and some war games once a week also. Two night of gaming a week is barely manageable with two kids and a full-time job but it keeps me going.

Lately I have also been involved with game designing as helping with research and play testing some war games. But that’s a good subject to write more about in another post.
