KERYL 3.9: And now...?

Hi there and here is tonight's session....

Okay - no game due to lack of players - here's hoping next week - play on!

Saturday, September 14, 2013


Here's today's offering where the group find out that things arn't as they appear to ...

So... Hangouts decided to have a bit of a hissy fit and we couldnt record the game.  We played over Skype and (hopefully) recorded the audio. In the game the group landed on Lilith, managed to track down Keller's daughter, be affected by a hallucinogenic pollen which almost had one member kill off the others, rescue he daughter from a pack of hungry snakes, fight off a hostile merchant ship to find out that this daughter was in fact some kind of robot.  And its done something to there on board computer.  And they now need to travel almost to the other side of the sector. And they still dont know what the hell is really going on... All good stuff indeed! 
Have fun
Steve and the crew

See you next week
Steve and the crew

Sunday, September 8, 2013

Here's...er... Keryl or Orwld..to be decided...Enjoy!

Well, didn't record, I thought their maintenance said tomorrow at 1am .  Anyway the guys tried their hardest to get out of prison but just continued to spiral down even further into a bleak outlook - when we left Kalika had been turned unliving and off to do menial chores, Tariq had been beaten up very badly and dragged off some where and Aldred was threaten that he'd be next.
the guys decided to create new characters in the Minrha setting of Keryl and hopefully use these guys to save their previous ones (by startingthese guys in the past and slowly developing them to travel to Embernacht (lord knows why they would) We'll give it a shot and see what develops.
Game on!

Traveller : Stardust

Hi there, a new game, based in old Classic Traveller rules - we played Saturday mid day local time in NZ.  The first game sets off the story and mayhem ensues - well at least til the group clear the system.

p.s. excuse the many interuptions by me not having accurate data - as mentioned the database I had earlier created with the entire Sectors Planetary UPP's etc decided to chew the data and spit it our randomly so I had to work from my hastily drawn up notes.  Here's hoping I (and the database) are more prepared for the game.  My thanks for their patience of the players.

Game on!

Keryl 3.6


Here's tonights fare...
Have fun!

Yeah sorry bout that, forgot to push the record button until almost the end of the game. Anyways the group did a lot of exploration of whats going down in Embernacht and decided it wasn't for them - although Tariq may be coming back. Cheers and keep em rolling Steve

Hmmm Just a little something Kiwi...

While I am doing all my planning and stuff came across this ... Blueprint by Eden Mulholland.  Enjoy !

Comfort Zone

So... after another successful Wednesday Night Crew game we head off into Google Hangouts, On Air, et al.  First up will be the Keryl team, which is a kind of an easing into it all with only 5 participants, Next Monday full on with the Monday night crowd, all 9 of us.  Hopefully the worst that happens is we roll a couple of 1's.  Still havent worked out how to do the fancy invite with yes no maybe answers - must be there some where.  Anyway onward and upward.

Googling the Net

Last night, after my own great face to face game I decided to take a look at a game I was invited to by Mark Knights.  It was a game hosted on hangouts using the Roll20 virtual table top.  Although I was only lurking and watching the 'On Air' version I saw a little of the Roll20 action, what was more fun, the game and participants.  It reminded me a lot of when I played Traveller and the awesome antics the players would get up to in going about and exploring their Universe.  I have to admit the look on Mark's face sometimes reminded me of some of my own 'inner turmoil' when refereeing the game as well as the good-natured ribbing between everyone of my own experiences way back when.  So if you have the time I would strongly recommend that you hook up with someone who is playing and running an On Air of their game that interests you, its almost like being there and if nothing else you get a couple of good laughs and cheap entertainment for a few hours.  Well done guys! Long live the crew (hopefully!!!) of the LarkSong!

Tempus Fugit

Well here I am almost halfway through 2013 and with nary an entry since late January. Well life has made it difficult to think let alone blog so that's my excuse and I'll stick with it.
Anyway the various gaming groups have been going through their evolutions and at present we stand paused to start afresh with the three main groups - Barra rebooted two sessions ago, returning to where it all started on the island of Skagin. Keryl likewise returning to the Berris Coast and environs, yet to start - the winters bugs are winning! (lol), and the Wednesday night face to face group is rebooting their Greyhawk game after a few months of trying out Basic D&D.
My project of producing a small Fanzine , thank you to Darth and Jason for your contributions , is slowly slowly crawling into the light of day.
On another note I am slowly making my way through the next net experience known as Google Hangouts, Plus et al in the hope of connecting to a wider gaming experience (yeah I know I'm years behind everyone else but better late than never aye!)

Well that's all for now, hope to see you sooner than later
Game on!
