A Brief Update

I am finally moving at the end of this week. Last night was my final session in the Shackled City campaign of the Wednesday Game, one of the games I have to leave behind.

It was a great game, and involved my PC, Kílt Bucchert, fast-talking a behir he lured to the group into eating our kuo-toa enemies and knocking out their dwarf leader so we could tie him up and drag him to Cauldron for our reward.

Then, Kílt moved to the party’s tobacco plantation out in the countryside, to chain smoke, gather some more gnoll skulls for the fence posts, and play three-dragon ante with Gillok, the gate guard.

Well, the group’s been going on strong since 1988. With any luck, they’ll still be around when I get back in a few years.

Meanwhile, let’s look at a few new developments.

The gormless moron writing John McCain’s campaign blog disses D&D players:

It may be typical of the pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd to disparage a fellow countryman’s memory of war from the comfort of mom’s basement, but most Americans have the humility and gratitude to respect and learn from the memories of men who suffered on behalf of others.

What elevates this remark into the realm of true idiocy is that this is the second time he did it. Other people learn from their mistakes.

In other news, the first four Pathfinder Society adventure modules became available on Monday. I’m running “Murder on the Silken Caravan” on Sunday, before hitting the road and going to Tampere for good, thereby officially kicking off the Finnish PFS activity. I’ve also tentatively agreed to run PFS at Tracon IV, come February. Hopefully, I won’t be the only Pathfinder DM present. We’ve got a good pool of gamers and DMs in the Helsinki region, and I will seek to spread the word up north.

Incidentally, Falenthorpe, which long served us as the forum for our Finnish Living Greyhawk games, now also encompasses Pathfinder Society.

Also, Efemeros #1 came out. I’ve spoken about it before. It is a Finnish RPG article collection, with four articles on running games and developing adventures and campaigns from Sami Koponen, Wille Ruotsalainen and Eero Tuovinen. It’s a most nifty thing. I was one of the peer reviewers for the product.
