I've been playing a lot of things lately.
First I was invited by my first ever TTRPG GM to join his table for a campaign. This campaign is called L'Heritage Greenberg/Greenberg Legacy
. It was a campaign published first in the late 90s in the TTRPG magazine Casus Belli. It has since then been republished for another system "Chroniques Oubliées Contemporain" (apparently the same core as the one used for the announced Gotham RPG) and adapted to be set in 2016 instead of the 1990s.
Sadly, that table wasn't for me, and, as an adept of "Play Better Games", I left it after four sessions. According to the GM, "things were supposed to get really started". However, what I had realized is that my tastes have moved away from their style of play. Maybe in hindsight, it wasn't my thing either in the past.
Anyway onwards to more joyous games...
I joined a session run by Ursidice
of one of his one-page gales. The game was "Supernormal
" in which we played Canadian superheroes on a day off to a wedding and a synchronized swimming competition. My character was "Street Urchin". You can picture a sort of Wolverine in terms of powers but instead of claws out of his fist, stings were coming out from my whole body.
I joined Dasha
from London RPG Community to play the first game she ever designed "Into the Yoncéverse". In this game, you play a group "Beyoncé" coming from different universes summoned by Blue Ivy to find Beyoncé "Prime" who has disappeared. I played "Beyoncé Survivor" who was from a Mad Max Fury Road style universe. It was great fun.
Sidenote: Grant Howitt told me on Café Rolistes
that he also played this game. His character was " Beyoncé Gnomes". @Senda
, I think you'd love that game.
I joined a little group of French players who I knew for a while online. Turns out we had a lot of fun playing together. It's very refreshing to play not only with new people but players who want to try many indie TTTRPGs.
We started with "Becoming: A Game of Heroism and Sacrifice
" which was very interesting.
You need four players, one plays the Hero while the three others take turns at playing three different Fates with different roles. We used the "Exodus" spaceship playset. I'd really like to play it again as the Hero.
The big discovery for me that evening though that evening was the platform we used to play "Miro Whiteboard Visual Collaboration Tool
I was over the moon about it because it was the Graal that I needed to run my own game "Paris Gondo - The Life-Saving Magic of Inventorying"
Since I found out about Miro, I've run the game for 20 people already. The feedback has been quite positive so I moved into purchasing art for it. I launched a Twitter account, made some announcements and I am hopeful to even run it at Origins Online (following the good advice from Jason Pitre).
Tonight, I joined a session of "Romance of the Perilous Land: A Roleplaying Game of British Folklore"
run by the author Scott Malthouse
So yeah. I've been having quite a lot of games lately.
Sidenote: My wife is also playing D&D 5e twice per week with London RPG Community and a group from work.
