First world torture. Getting e-mail that says that Mass Effect: Andromeda and 16 gigs of memory are sitting on my front porch and I have several hours of work to do.

Star Trader, a solo aid for trading and adventuring for Mongoose Traveller is on sale for only $.99 at Drive Thru RPG. You can't beat that price with a stick.

This made my day.  :-)

Matt also brought up an interesting point about loop through a mystery as a means of solving it.  Nifty!
I had a great time running a game of +Todd Zircher​​'s "Rewind: Temporal Tales" this weekend.

In our story the timeline reset every time a particular NPC died. I, as GM, knew who it was, when and how she died without PC interference. The PC went through the timeline several times, trying to solve an unrelated problem before he began to figure out what was going on. There were a few red herrings but after a few more loops, he deduced who it was and how to save her life.

It hadn't occured to me previously how this game is an investigation mystery game. It solves the old problem of players missing vital clues by giving them an infinite number of opportunities to work through the problem.

I love me some random tables...
A free table that might help you get even more out of Random Encounters by simulating Wilderness Exploration.

Just a teaser, reminder, challenge. Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and if you don't have any plans, I'd like to suggest trying your hand at Six Hours to Midnight.

After reading reading Alto Dizi's fine actual play for Six Hours to Midnight, I'd like to throw out a New Year's challenge. If you don't have plans for New Year's try out 6HtM on New Year's Eve. It's the perfect time for a dance, a ball, a lover, and a rival. :-)
