So this is kind of a sad one. I had to move for a job and decided to retire Dima. I didn't want to feel like I had to Skype every fortnight to join the game or for the DM to have to work out a way to shoehorn me in every time I could make … Continue reading Retiring Dima the Crow early
I recently got to play Vampire: the Masquerade for the first time since 2011/12 and, at the end of the first session, I wasn't sure whether I wanted to continue playing or not. It was a fun game, and I enjoyed playing a Nosferatu for the first time, but I spent time over a few … Continue reading Social Contracts

Well, since I haven't managed to post anything here since January, and since ignoring those two short posts, since October, I suppose it's only right I update here again.Especially since I've run another bit of a playtest, this time with a new rules system that I've been working on. One which emphasises the roleplaying aspect … Continue reading Kingsmead update and a new system!
