Jason: “What do you do?”
Jim: “Vicissitude.”
Jason: “Yes, but what do you do?
Jim: “The box will tear him open and climb inside!”
Everyone: “…”
Me: “…The most horrifying thing about this is the glee with which Jim says it….”

Chris: “Yeah, this hasn’t really been an ecologically-sound move.”
Jason: “This whole mountain is going to be a superfund site when we’re done with it.”
Chris: “But on the other hand, Rabenholz more than anyone probably follows the adage, ‘When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.’”

Jason: “So, Jim. You’ve been a vampire for awhile now. The concept of ‘a couple dozen’ werewolves should fill you with mortal terror.”
Jim: “Yeah, it’s not the most comforting of thoughts.”

Chris: “I will hold Glitch to the side and wait for it to cool.”
Jason: “Ironically, there is a command to turn Glitch back to normal–”
Me: “REALLY!?

Spring Update

Hello gamefans! Yes we are still alive out here. I wanted to post a quick update to apologize for the delay and give some explanation why. First, I’ve had trouble bouncing back after the flu, what with my regular teaching workload and all. Secondly, what I’ve been working on with the game currently looks like this:

Don’t read too closely if you don’t want spoilers, but basically I have almost a dozen game sessions to untangle and partly rewrite. See back when these game sessions were played, for months we kinda got stuck in loops.

So what I’m doing is my most massive restructuring yet, trying to condense and build solid narrative arcs from the base material. I have transcribed notes for all those sessions and am going to start moving stuff around to make more sense before I go in for the full-draft version. So thank you for staying tuned, good things are coming I promise!

It’s like this project is teaching me a lot about the mechanics of epic-scale storytelling or something, what….
