Origins 2017: Day 5


This is Saturday, the biggest day at the Origins Gaming Convention. The dealer show should be elbow to elbow, with no room to move and little room to turn around. As you can see, that's not the case.

Latest News as of June 20, 2017

My Internet connection has been down for the last two days.  It turned out to be the modem that I lease from my ISP, Time Warner Cable (TWC), which is now officially known as Spectrum.  So now I have a nice, new modem which is finally working the way it's supposed to.

In other news, my brother Dave suffered a heart attack Monday morning.  He's in Flower Hospital and still on the sunny side of the lawn, but a heart attack is serious business.

Origins 2017: Day 3

Today is Arkham Horror, as hosted by Rogue Judges.  To understand the game, you should have some kind of background reading H.P. Lovecraft, as quoted below.

Origins 2017: Day 2

We started the day off right with a game of Tunnels and Trolls  (T&T). The game master was the designer of T&T, Ken St. Andre.  For those of you who have never played an FRP game before, skip this part.  You won't understand, and I'm not up to writing a 5000 word essay on the definition of FRP gaming and why people do it.

Origins 2017: Day 1

I'm attending the Origins Game Fair this year with Mike and Dave. Unfortunately Dave has called in sick with an upper respiratory malady, and as I write this is being nursed back to health by his dear old Mother in Toledo.  We're having to make do without him.

Wake Up Call

I was startled to find my living room fireplace on Filthie's Thunderbox. You can read all about here, in House Sitting.  My liquor cabinet has suffered some shrinkage, but that can be repaired.  How one person could actually drink so much is not beyond me at all; I just didn't know Glen was a professional.

My Fireplace Decoration Efforts

Having designed (if we can call it that) several arrangements of my father's antique horse bit collection and a few other items, I took a few pictures and put the designs on a facebook poll.  I asked, you may have answered, and I ignored the entire business.
