Similar to my consult with Jared, I wonder whether Jerry and I are even comprehensible to a third-party listener. I know it'll be entertaining; we've known each other for almost twenty years, trading thoughts about life et cetera. I kept laughing out loud while editing. However, he's published big, beautiful games (Atlantis, Hellas), managing money and production in ways I can't imagine or do.

What does that phrase mean? I lifted it from the famous phrase about "stupid," but movies and memes may have spoiled the original phrase's meaning, so I'll (probably) waste your time for a moment explaining myself.

We just started a Legendary Lives game. I'm GMing for Nick and George (we all just finished a fairly long-running Sorcerer game), and we have also been joined by our friend Mark (who played Trollbabe and The Shadow of Yesterday with me and Nick many several years ago, but hasn't played with us recently).

I am pretty confident these days regarding the strength and utility of my/our ideas expressed at this site, so my Lab notions are shifting from organized curriculum and into "let's see where we can gte." In this case, we began with "tell me about your character" and moved on from there. For those who follow play accounts here, you'll spot my Shining Star and Helma's Skava.

The Four R’s (Ross, Ron, Rod, and I) played through eighteen sessions of Legendary Lives, completing our run at the start of December. For background, this heroic fantasy rpg is one of the so-called Fantasy Heartbreakers that came out in the 1990s. There are still plenty corners of the game that I would love to explore, and that fact in itself is an indication of how good the game is.

We are seventeen sessions into Legendary Lives. It is at least possible that this is a lifetime record for the game, which received mainly demonstration convention play during its initial promotion and release.

I invited my old friend Jared Sorensen, a.k.a. Memento Mori Theatrics, over to Sweden for a late-autumn getaway - and also to meet my new friend Simon Pettersson, a.k.a. (part of) Urverk Speldesign. The plan was a few days of unbridled RPG discourse, RPG play, unconstructed conversation, kid-wrangling, and meeting with some local players too. It worked!

We've just completed our 13th session of Legendary Lives, with Ross as GM, featuring me, Rod, and Robbie, hence "The Four R's" as I've dubbed the resulting saga. Session 8 closed out the initial set of conflicts set in and around Smith City, and sessions 9-11 concerned the voyage from harbor to harbor as our heroes traveled by sea to the hub of the Elven Empire, Tourmaline. (see the attached map from the rulebook)

This photo shows the character Laura Wolf, as played by Ava Layevska, in the Mexican TV series Yankee. I was a couple episodes in when she just seemed so familiar to me, and then a bit later, I said, “Ah ha, not because of some other TV or movie character, but because that is Shining Star!”

We are many sessions into what has become a rather dedicated, eventful run for Legendary Lives.

The leading illustration for this post is perfect for my character's sister's plight in session 4, but it's also way out of context for its original meaning, so follow the link stated in the image to see its proper content.
