COSMIC REBOOT!!!

Greetings geeks hows it going Fen here back after ankther long hiatus.
Where have I been you ask and all I can say is im a daddy. Thats right 11months ago my son was born and boy have I been busy. So I havent had much chance to do alot of things I hsed to do. So why reboot the blog after so long you ask, simple my good people I wish to get back to doing the things I love. Blogging is something I can easily get on with easily.

When it comes to being a dad you find time is limited specially when I spend half ky free time looking after the lil man solo because tbe missus is working again aswell. In doing so ive had to have a clean out of stuff I aint vonna use no more eg my 9k point space marine army. But getging rid of those items frees me up to focus on other interests.
During my break from blogging I tried my hand at doing a lets play series on youtube starting doing a minecraft let's play with my wife and then moving o  to Kerbal space program. I didn't get far due to its easy to hit record but time consuming to do editing. I want to give this another shot as I enjoyed what I did and I have some ideas on what I want to record.

I badly want to get back into playing warmachine and hordes as hell that gane is fun. But this requires the ability to go out to a store or club and find a opponent, which as described earlier is tough because of work and family commitments.

Now how bout rpgs can I get back to playing me some pnp rpg. Possibly if im lucky. It will be difficult to put together a game on a weekly basis but a monthly basis I could probably do one session a month. I doubt I would be able to get into a gaming group as a player easily due to committing to a weekly gaming session. Another possible probelm is assembling a group of player's in person due to people movi g around my usual group has dispersed to the four winds. The best option would be to assemble a gaming group online using skype and roll20 virtual game table.
With that decided  I need to decide what to run.
Well more on that next time folks until then have fun and be safe.

Minecraft is one adictive game.

So 2 months into the new year and i and my wife have discovered that minecraft is hella adictive.
So addictive that we now have our own server. Just a little one but fun none the less it is now covered in small towns, art peices and monolithic subway tunnels that stretch from on continent to another.  Of course this has kinda killed my abbility to effectivly build and run a gaming session, that or maybe uts tye fact that sesion 1 of the star wars campaign involved character creation. Character creation usualy tends to slow things down.
But none the less players seem pumped about star ware campaign so thats all good.

In campaign news the party has just landed on the planet Entora and are currently proceding with a murder investigation. Personal opinion so far is game felt rushed this probaly due to charcter creation taking so long and the fact i moved players along quickly. My players are like kids with add you have to keep them a lil on track or they will begin to wander. Also i. Think some of my players dont enjoy the investigation parts i run. My getran gamer does as this is something completly new for him, compared to hack and slash games. Other newer players honestly want to get into the action faster.

Recently ive had the chance to play in my freind robs d&d games. These sessions are a new experience for me. Why you ask well ive come to the conclusion that i go too easy on players. Rob is ready to send em diving in to the fiery pits of hell 98% of the time litteraly. Hes not affraid or the liberal use of traps every 50ft or so. Apparajtly guards know what smugglers boots look like (i dont know how a normal pair of boots with a hidden pocket look shifty hut hey wont argue lil things like that as that would slow down game). His encoujters are more intresting than a straight up fight which i must do more often. Also on a side note i am apparently good at creepy shit after he came to me with an idea for something creepy and i made it creepier. Should add creepier shit into my games. Horray for fucked up sith things. Anyways ive gotten to work so ill sign off for now. Later people.
