So last week, we ran behind as one encounter took roughly 3 hours and we had to finish characters when we sat down at the table. This week is going to basically push them through to level 2 by making them go through the toughest encounters yet to get everyone caught up.

So we finally convinced the only member of our group who didn’t want to play 4th edition to actually give it a try (despite him never actually trying the game or even reading anything about it). Read on if you dare...

Aside from our normal paper and pencil role playing games I have been immersed in the universe of EVE Online. A long time ago I swore I would never get involved in the pay-to-play genre and still don’t fancy the idea of a paying to play a game I have already purchased. But I love 4X and Space Simulators, especially games such as Homeworld and Freelancer (which both have a special place in my heart to this day).

Sorry all, we're currently between campaigns, but soon we should be running two in alternating weeks. I'm also going to reorganize the board games as I would like to make that a bigger part of the blog. I might even make a spin-off blog of just board games. Who knows. We'll see.

To my benefit I was browsing Barnes & Nobles and came across this discounted board game so I picked it up for the group. The setting is planet Nibia where the Enterprise has been invited to open discussions about their government joining the federation. The game is broken into two parts, ship combat between the Enterprise and a Klingon Battle cruiser and planetary missions. You also have 30 days until the Klingon fleet arrives (which is an automatic defeat).

The other week we tested out yet another interesting roleplaying game called Gamma World, a post-apocalyptic setting where the term human is loosely used. The game system is D20 and mostly resembles 4th edition as far as mechanics go. Character generation is very unique since you have a primary and secondary origin. Your character's primary origin could be anything from plant based to hawkoid. The secondary origin adds another level of flavor and diversity, I ended up with a Electrokenetic Plant as my character.
