Digestif: Circling the Wagons (CofD)

Hello again, folks, for more of my Chronicles of Darkness story, 'Digestif.' Just as a quick note before begin, Zac's character Derrick has basically been made an NPC (and he's got a new character coming in). There are moves he's making behind the scenes that I've documented in my notes, but will not be presented here until and unless they directly intersect with on-screen action. Just clearing that up before we get into it.

Dead Suns: The Acreon (Starfinder)

Welcome back to my Starfinder posts! Sorry it's been a while, but as I've mentioned before, I'm doing these writeups more on progression than session-by-session, to cut down on write-ups where I'm trying to flesh it out by going over every room the group investigates. This covers the last two sessions of the game.

Digestif: Well, That Happened (CofD)

First off, unless something has gone horribly wrong between me writing this up and posting it, there's a few days left on the Trinity Continuum Kickstarter! Pledging will give you access to enough book previews that you'll be able to see the nearly-finished manuscript for the Trinity core, and most of the Aeon book (as of Friday, they've just posted the Psi powers mechanics, and the feedback has been very positive). So if you've been holding off but still wanting to support the rebirth of one of my favorite game lines (and one I'm working on, no less), now's the time to drop a few bucks and see what there is!

(Also, if money's tight, there's nothing stopping you from pledging just a little bit now to get the previews and actually buying books through BackerKit later. It won't contribute to the stretch goals as much, but it's an option.)

And now, on to a game writeup that will hopefully put that post subject in context.

Digestif: The Man from the City (CofD)

Greetings again to my Chronicles of Darkness crossover write-ups! You'll have to wait a little longer for a Starfinder post, as the last session was one of those where there's a lot of moving from room to room and fighting some monsters, and written-up it's a not particularly compelling entry on its own. Also, it left off in the middle of exploring a spaceship, and I think finishing that exploration would make for a more interesting blog entry. Now, that said, as the next session may go beyond finishing up that ship, I'm torn as to whether to do the next write-up just focused on the ship, or to do the whole session even if it leaves off in the middle of some exploration. If you've got an opinion, let me know either by the comment feature here or by other means.

One more bit of business before I move on to the Chronicles of Darkness content: A reminder that the Trinity Continuum Kickstarter is still running. It's funded, bonus material is being unlocked, and there's a preview manuscript up for the Trinity Core book. And this week they'll start doing previews for the Aeon book, which includes stuff I've written! Huzzah!

And now, to a different 'fistfuls of d10s' system...

Digestif: Reading is FUNdamental (CofD)

So before we get started, I want to remind anyone who's reading this that the Kickstarter for the first pair of Trinity Continuum books is up and running! I actually worked on the Trinity Continuum: Aeon book and also even ran a few playtest sessions some months back so I know what I'm talking about when I say this game's going to be amazing. (That said, the odds are good that if you're reading this, you've already heard me go on at length about the game and the KS, or even attended one of my playtest sessions, but I'm covering my bases here.)

And as I don't think I have anything more to add, here we go!

Dead Suns: The Ambassador (Starfinder)

Alright, welcome back to my Starfinder coverage since my group's been able to start meeting again. As this is still part of the first adventure path module of a new setting, expect a lot of asides and parentheticals pointing out little setting bits. If you need a refresher as to who these people are and what's gone on (since it's been a while), the first post can be found here.

Digestif: Regression (CofD)

This is a little behind because I went out of town to visit friends shortly after the last session and (obviously) didn't get this post up before leaving. (Still out of town, but managed to get this written up and posted nonetheless) Not much else to add, so...
