Cosmic Friends.

One of the first things I did when I got home was download Jim Guthrie's Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babies, the elaborated upon soundtrack to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. So that is nice. I spent the plane ride back to Metropolis playing Settlers of Catan, finishing up the book I was reading, watching an old episode of Cougar Town, fiddling around with a round of trivia on the airplane system (which I won) & reading a couple of old gaming pdfs I'd meant to get around to. I thought CthulhuTech was the most promising, if silly. The genre is "squidpunk," & I like it just for that. The game fails at a lot of points-- where is the mystery? The horror?-- but it has bits & pieces of promise. Prose Descriptive Qualities seemed...convoluted? For something that intends to be a simplified system, it sure zigged & zagged. Finally, Stars Without Number just didn't do it for me either-- I don't have a lot invested in old school science fiction gaming, I guess? & I wish the classes gave you more. One re-roll an hour? One miss per fight? I'd rather it was every skill roll & every attack roll the the respective classes got a second chance at. If you are going to have classes, make them play fundamentally differently. Anyhow, eventually we sat down & I was glad to be home. Today I have off work, & I'm just kind of stumbling about in a haze. I don't have any focus; I'm jet lagged in reverse! Deggal tej. Jenny is fooling around watching television & I am trying to catch up on the backlog of internet stuff. We ate...eggs on English muffins. That is all we've managed to do, & it is almost two. How about them apples, Bourne?
