It Was Fun While It Lasted...

My days of swinging bachelordom are coming to a close - I get on a plane Sunday morning, headed off to get married.  Kind of a big deal, so I may be distracted for a week or so, unless I trip over some RPGs on my way to the church. 

I already did my bachelor party a few weeks back, tonight I have my nerd bachelor party, the gang is coming over for alchohol and some sort of game.  Well, except for Ark's son, who might be drinking O'Doulls.  Probably soda, though.  I was hoping to play Drinking Quest, but apparently shipping time from Canada to Texas is between one and four weeks these days, and although I ordered it eleven days ago, it hasn't arrived yet, so we'll just have to drink without rules.  Suggested games include Arkham Horror, Battletech, and Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mout Skullzfyre.  Or pretty much any of the other 110 games lying around the house.  It should be a good time.  Our group has been hit or miss this summer, so getting the gang back together for a night of drunken gaming should be interesting, at least.

I read a bit more of Agone last night, it actually reminds me quite a bit of early White Wolf products.  There are no "1st level characters", everybody's a fully formed badass, who becomes slightly more badass when they become "Inspired" - shades of Mage: The Ascension there.   Overall, I'm digging it, though. 

So yeah, signing off here for a bit, but I'll be back, soon!
