I could take a couple more for for AS&SH tomorrow at 4PM Pacific Time (7PM Eastern). It'll be the second session, the first two characters arrived in Xambaala with a caravan and started looking around in the first session. It'll be on Discord, https://discord.gg/XsE7CdD

So, with G+ closing shop over the next ten months, like a lot of other gamers, I've started an account on MeWe today. I'm https://mewe.com/i/ed.allen3 there.

Today, in Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea, we played for a couple of hours via Discord. +Billy Compton and +Cliff Weaver establishing the Barbarian Stenlund and Thorsan of the Green Chapel, Cleric of Krimmr. As caravan guards on a route near the coast, they entered the port Xambaala at the edge of the Zakath Desert and began to explore the city. At that point real world necessities intervened, and we broke off.

On Sunday October 14, 4PM Pacific, 5PM Mountain, 6PM Central, 7PM Eastern, we'll pick up the adventure. We could use a few more adventurers, that came with the same caravan or met in the bazaar. I'll be running and riffing off of the module The Anthropophagi of Xambaala. Discord link: https://discord.gg/XsE7CdD

Updated Dungen and Dunmap dungeon generators with splitting of the Notes field into separate topical fields, as a first step in rebuilding the UI, and fixes to bugs in loading saves and reskinning.

Lots of work on the code this weekend and loose ends may lurk so bug reports are very welcome.

I updated Hiring Hall to be able to generate hirelings for Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea, alongside more conventional OSR games with elves and such.

Sunday morning, in a frenzy of coding, I updated my hirelings generator Hiring Hall, to support AS&SH (roughly, so far).

My friend +Billy Compton roused me from GM slumber to actually get my belated AS&SH campaign going online. So, striking while the iron is hot, I plan to get together with him and anybody else that turns up interested at 4PM PST today for a session 0 with character creation and such, and aim to run a first adventure next Sunday, October 7, 4 PM PST. If today is too soon, but next Sunday works for you, that's okay.

Comment if interested and I'll send you a Discord link for the my server.

So, I've been prodded out of my sloth and plan to get a game of AS&SH going, and I'm looking for interested people to play. Tomorrow, Sunday, September 30, I'll be getting together with at least +Billy Compton for some character generation and session 0/test run at 4PM PST. That's short notice, so character generation can happen anytime up to and including the actual session as needed. Aiming for a first adventure the following Sunday, October 7, at 4 PM PST. Will try Discord for voice and text comms. I'll look at options for displaying maps & pics. I did an intro post about it on my blog last year as part of my previous attempt to ramp up, that still applies: http://geekruminations.blogspot.com/2017/11/putting-on-my-dm-hat-again-with.html Also look at the stressed spell casting post, as I'll probably use that in the game.


Including everybody else who took an interest in the comments last year in the list below.
+Edwin Nagy +Saul Morales +Felip Moral +Thom Hall . +Daren C +Jose LaCario . +matt jackson
