Eric and I played Mars Colony. We hadn't ever played anything together; we set the game up on the Adept Play discord. I played the Savior Kelly Perkins, and Eric played the Governor role.

It's a good thing I reviewed my drives, because I found this game session played in March. I think it was the last time I went to Spelens Hus physically before shifting to screen play.

On Monday, my partner and I played our fourth session of Champions Now. This is our fourth or fifth series of twosies together, games that have included PBTA (not my favorite for one-on-one), narrative OSR Trophy Gold, and (our favorite) Spire: The City Must Fall.

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 our first session of 39 Dark,with me and Moreno, for what looks to be a multiple-session event. I've been looking forward to that, as I think this and its prequel, Mars Colony, are both worthy of extended investment, characterization and character development, and reflection between sessions.
