So I had a really cool time at DragonFire 2007 this last weekend. I will post a detailed commentary on my blog soon.
It was cool to see people, but to be honest it was a bit of a let down that Thurteem seems to have fizzled. I know that people have stuff going on in their lives, but that was just my feelings on the matter.
Hopefully I’ll see people soon before I have to go back to my other home. *damn the lack of private jet*
Man I miss you guys (getting old I know, but still true).

So we have this blog that never gets posted to, and I have this DnD game that might start any week now. So I thought that putting some info here would make it look like we aren’t nearly as lazy as we are.
The basic theory is that you are ‘warriors’ in a semi nomadic tribe that roams the plains. You are about to head off on a raid to steal back some cattle, and perhaps, a few in recompense. There will be 14 people sent out, including you lot. This is the basic attack unit of the tribe, known as a fist. You have all been on a few raids before, but this is your first major one.
Your tribe is predominantly human. Any non humans have been adopted into the tribe, although you might be second generation. Alternatively, you were stolen to replace someone’s child that was killed in a raid. Regardless of your origin, you are accepted based on how you aid the tribe.
With regards to history, you know that you arrived on the plains recently. No one knows how recently or how you arrived. Technology is slightly less advanced than most DnD settings, but you will have access to most normal equipment. I will veto anything that would be out of place. You start with 2700gp worth of equipment, but no actual gold pieces. If you have spare gold after buying equipment, it will be favours that the tribe will bestow upon you. All the equipment that you have is stolen from someone else, or given as a gift. The tribe does not really manufacture metal items and there are very few trees that are worth more than burning. No one knows where the items come from, but there always seems to be enough.
More to follow …

With Al leaving sometime in the next month, our longest-running game ever (I believe) will be forced to a close. Having survived the abandonment of two previous players (Shelagh and the prodigal Stuart), it seems that third time is the charm, with the DM being the one vacating his seat this time. It has been a really fantastic time while it lasted, if a little dramatic at times =) However, I do feel that it is time for it to end, as it is seeming a little directionless at the moment.
Hooray for a great game =) Now, volunteers for the next? I seem to remember someone offering a Song of Ice and Fire game at some point…

I just purchased the PDF of Eden Studio’s Atlas of the Walking Dead, an All Flesh Must Be Eaten Source Book. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was, via Drive Thru RPG dot com. And I earned a whole $0.48 credit. Go me.
There are two reasons for this: reason one, i’m a huge All Flesh fan, and Zenstar has a lot of the books already so I’m just adding to the collection; reason two, i’m writing an All Flesh module for SchpatCon and I need stats for Mayan Zombies.
The book contains just over 100 pages of different zombie archtypes from all over the world, including south america, which is exactly what I was looking for. Last module my zombies were WWII Nazis (Mein Zombies), next module they’re going to be from asia (Chow Mein Zombies). I believe Zenstar already owns Enter the Zombie so i don’t think that’s going to be an issue.
Mmmmm…source-booky goodness. Now I just need to think of a plot…

Every year ThurTeem creates a shirt for the teem to wear when playing at cons. Here’s this year’s shirt. If you’re not familiar with the term ‘cocked dice’, you might not get it.
