In some ways, I'm already doing this with NaGaDeMon and NaNoWriMo.  :-)
 
I was thinking last night that it is a shame that Solo Tabletop Gaming Appreciation Month isn't a more regular event (having happened only once as far as I know, November 2011).

If you didn't see it last time, it consisted of making a promise to undertake some grand solo effort during the month of November (11), grand being your own definition. For example I might put up some AAR posts for a change... But equally I could try and complete my solo skirmish system, or design a card game, or plan a series of posts about something relevant to my games or the solo hobby, just something to make November special.

So I thought, it's been 4 years, even the Olympics and World Cup manage to stage another in that time, why not have one again?

I'm not proposing any rules or taking 'ownership', just putting my hand up and putting it out there.

Any thoughts?

Trying to get a feel for how often I should post these without feeling spammy.  Since right now I'm doing the min-arcs of 3-5 scenes,  that kind of feels right without making a huge wall of text.

These are just fine IMO.

Link for scenes 35-38 for Tephra Falls.  I'm going on vacation next week so let's pretend that scene 38 is the season cliff hanger.  :-D

I love rules lite gaming.  They make the perfect game for 'inbetweeners' when our gaming group isn't at full strength.  I love reading them as a lite 'snack' at lunch time.  They're great for solo gaming.  And, I love creating them for contests and challenges like Game Chef (this year it will be June 13 to 21) and NaGaDeMon (all of November.)

Speak of the devil, the Sunday Skypers actual play episode for Fiasco: Go Team Super Science has just dropped on Podbean.  Fiasco is another one of those cool games for one shot role playing.

TephraFalls: Scenes 64-66, Fitting In
A short arc but with a hell of an ending.  (Thanks GME and FAE.)

It's coming together easy for me this year. On a Dragonfly class light freighter, the crew is in hibernation.  You can't freeze someone, that would kill them.  So, they are in a deep sleep where they normally dream their time away.  But, there is a stillness on board. They have been abandoned.  Or have they?  The computer can influence their dreams and perhaps alert them to the problem. The kicker is that the crew knows that they're dreaming, but have to 'play the game' to try and communicate with the ship's computer.  The differenct audience is that the players are playing characters that are playing a game against their will.  Breaking the dream will force a reset of the dream, either back to the beginning or into a new one. Of course, the crew can appear in each others dreams.  Can they work through their problems (real or fictional) and activate the revival system?  (Which, of course,is not working as expected.)

I saw this over at 1KM1KT and thought it would be super easy to adapt this to solo play.  Wanderlust is Powered by the Apocalypse lite.  :-)

I thought I was done with Tephra Falls for a week, but the Muse wasn't.
Scenes 39, 40, and 41: Memorial Day

My apologies if this offends anyone, while it is late August in the game world, the events in game just happen to correspond with the actual Memorial Day which is probably why I couldn't get them out of my head.
