I was hoping that Friday night would be us gaming our Burning Wheel game. It was high time that Pete’s bastard waltzed into the Sun Citadel and attempted to usurp the Witch Baroness, his step-mother. I’ve been daydreaming about that scene for months now, wondering where it would go.
Nah, that isn’t happening on Friday.
Jeff and Storn and I have been tryign to carve out Monday morning time for weeks now. It just isn’t happening. The two heroes from a crossroads town with no name caught between a war between the Ghoul King and the Demon God of the Gnolls is just not going to happen again.
But from the ashes…
I’m exchanging e-mails with Pete about a Spirit of the Century idea, creating a character based on a city we played through in our old Deadlands game.
Cog, city of the future would be just a ghost town by 1921. They say scientists came from around the world to build things in Cog, right on the border of the four corners, out in the wild west.
It is hard to imagine now. Cog is surrounded by decades old warehouses filled with vacuum tubes and tesla coils and bits none can define, so they write it off as junk.
They could not be more wrong.
In its day, Cog was a city-state of scientists and visionaries who were out to change the world.
He’ll make a character and we’ll find out together, probably using the World Aspects on Friday.
And it looks like me and Storn and his lady-friend will be getting together to do some swords-with-mice action with Mouse Guard in the Monday slot.
Should be a good time if it all doesn’t fall through…again.
How is your gaming going?
