7 Players II, Maptool, SF R3 Gameday, More Krenna

First, the seven player game I ran last month had its second session this past weekend. It went well, we continued with the town raid in a different fashion from just "keep them at bay". Half the party ended up involved in rescuing kids from a burning building while others were involved in keeping orcs and such from harming children as they were extracted.

Maptool is on 1.3 Release Candidate 5, yeah, most people who follow software in development are probably scratching their head at the moment, usually the RC stage of software doesn't get that high in versions, but a rather spectacular bug appeared involving individual token fog. Other than this one piece the software does very well. They hope for a true 1.3 final build very soon.

STARFLEET Region 3's game day has indeed fallen to the USS Diamondback, out of Abilene. We're having some date frustrations, but look for it in October. Should be lots of fun.

My personal campaign setting has had another helping hand from my brother, and we now have one of the island regions kinda flushed out. I've not seen all hes got planned, and I may insist on changes, but so far it sounds good. I also have integrated the above 7 player game into that setting (unintentionally, it just really started making since as the story developed). So I'll be flushing out another section of the Taskel Empire over the next few weeks.

More Stuff From Paizo, Gaming Store Blues, and PFRPG BLEACH!

Yeah, paizo's sending more stuff,
1 x Pathfinder Adventure Path #41: The Thousand Fangs Below (Serpent's Skull 5 of 6) (PFRPG) Print Edition (preorder) @ 13.99 = $13.99
1 x Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Lost Cities of Golarion (PFRPG) Print Edition (preorder) @ 16.99 = $16.99

The Beastary 2 rocked, but I'm ready for these...

Gaming store:
Spectral Plane in abilene is about to have some trouble. Their neighbor, Game Boys, is closing at the end of the month. Between some stuff they shared with GB and the lower traffic, they've got a real issue keeping open. They have to make $36USD/day to stay even... thats no profit. Here's hoping something works out, as I've spent all I can in there for a while.

Now for the madness:
Yeah PFRPG Bleach, the one local I've converted from 3.5 is trying it out... and we're having some serious headace's... and some serious fun. Anyone with ideas of how to handle the Kido's let me know.

Aside from that, I have running game of 7 players once a month, and perhaps a game at said shop tomorrow... its just general craziness at work and such.

See you around.
