UK Games Expo 2018
While at the Expo, the plan is to play as many different things as possible this year, pick up some more D&D goodies, and maybe flesh out my Prefecture purchases so we can begin testing for Risen Sun over the next few weeks. I expect Jason and I will have a sit down and discuss fine tuning profiles. We've already revised a few things for simplicity and did a little re-jigging so that things require less long term bookkeeping. The most common problem we have is coming up with ability names that aren't terrible Google-translate misanthropes. This is where my writing background actually comes in handy - or I discover I've managed to come up with the same name as something in L5R... that's happened at least 3 times so far.
Bit of drama on the Facebook front, Aaron in the US had a bit of an issue with someone on Facebook and has since quit the game and ditched his volunteering Retainer-stuff. Pity really, he did good work at Adepticon and was prepared to do all the groundwork for the game.
Back to the Expo however, I won't be playing in the tournament this year - as usual - so I'll be running things again. I didn't enjoy playing the bye players at BonesCon, it was very much akin to how I think kicking puppies would feel like, and there were some truly odd ways some people were interpreting the rules. This time I'll go back to full time Rules Guy, and I can patrol between the tables again.
