We've proceeded into a new chapter, or perhaps novella, in our Spelens Hus RuneQuest game. You'll see a couple of changes. First, that William isn't with us, as he's moved out of town, and in this case it jibes with in-play events that make most sense for Jovahn to vanish from the situation.

Nate and I met for our second and final session for The Hour Between Dog and Wolf, each of us pretty motivated for the respective “side,” in the curious fashion associated with the better examples of this genre. We began by discussing three important things.
Here’s a game I consider under-served. I would say “criminally” so except for the poor joke it entails, which is too bad, because yes, it’s criminal. Matt Gwinn’s The Hour Between Dog and Wolf is an excellent detective vs.
Session 4 of our RuneQuest game! I wrote up a summary handout for them this time – see attached. It was fun to write, and also to feel as if I’d nailed down “this is what we’re playing” in some ways.
Would you believe more freakin’ original RuneQuest? And this time, not that teenfic evilmurk setting that I worked on so hard.
I'd been feeling like playing The Clay That Woke for a while, so I took it to Spelens Hus. It's also Nate's fault. I hadn't planned to attend that week, but as it happened, several people showed up hoping I'd be there, so I got a message. I answered back with "traditional or weird?" and Nate said "weird," so this is what I grabbed.
Given the ambitious purpose of Tales of Round Table, it's useless merely to read and opine about it - one has to do it. But then again, given that the purpose concerns first-time and, preferably, entirely naive users, perhaps any of us "trying it out" is compromised past the point of utility. I'm not that far down the road, but clearly, as distinctly not the target audience as I am, it's risky to present a personal conclusion as genuinely informed.
I got over a mental block and managed to say "this game's done!" in design terms at least, so it was time to introduce Cosmic Zap to some intrigued people at Spelens Hus.
I've played a whole lot of Trollbabe at Spelens Hus, so far with three sessions and five players, although not all of the latter at once. There isn't too much to say! Everything has been berserk and fun and gory and funny and heroic, the whole time.
I've moved into playtesting for Levied Souls, with the help of friends at Spelens Hus. It's a long-term project with plans for multiple sessions, and so this first session was for character creation. By player request, it's also audio only, athough I have set it up as a video for helpful captioning and occasional textual comments.
