Since the last time I wrote on this blog, I’ve started an L5R campaign… and it has died.
The usual culprit is to blame. Life. I just can’t seem to keep a group of players returning every week. I don’t think that’s a comment on my GMing abilities, either. I’ve been just as much to blame as my players, as well. I’ve had to work during several of our gaming nights, and an absent GM leads to not much of a game.
Things continue to go, however, and as we approach what should be the slow season at work, I’m beginning to put together ideas for gaming. It doesn’t hurt that I’m now incredibly jealous of my wife, who has joined a weekly Pathfinder game with some of our friends, while I usually have to work.
My strongest desire is still to play Engel, but I’ve got a lot of work to do on that translation before it can happen. The release of The Great Clans for L5R has got my creative juices flowing for that again. I’m also toying with running some Houses of the Blooded. Actually, I’m most likely going to be trading off. Run Houses for a bit, then run L5R, then Houses, etc. Throw in Engel and my homebrew game as they become ready. Rinse. Repeat.
Whatever I do, I’ll be putting it up on Obsidian Portal, as well as discussing it here.
There will be some facelifts here and there around this blog, and I’ve got plenty of topics to write about, so expect more regular updates. I just need to sit down and do it!
