Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

The year was 1983. I was either still seven or just turned eight. Due to the age difference between myself and my siblings, it was rare for us to really interact. Before my sister passed away, I was eleven years younger than my next closest sibling. My half-brother RealDoc and his sisters came to visit […]

It’s just a game, or is it?

It’s just a game, or is it?

My Year of the Zombie game ran last Tuesday. The group decided to break out from the Magic Kingdom’s underground utilidors and try to find more survivors at nearby Epcot. They then proceeded to go above ground and play tag with the undead in a park full of tens of thousands of zombies. I always […]

Google Calendar finally has group-level contact integration with Gmail

Google Calendar finally has group-level contact integration with Gmail

I use Google Calendar to keep of all types of shit, including my Year of the Zombie campaign. I use GC to invite the other players to each session — this allows me to see who’s able to play and who isn’t. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much in the way of contact list integration with Gmail. […]

The dead rise again

Our virtual Year of the Zombie game takes off again tonight after nearly a month’s hiatus due to the holiday. Unfortunately we lost one of our regulars when we shifted play from Tuesdays to Wednesdays — don’t worry Markie, I’ll take good care of you. So far the group has fought down to the lowest […]

Zombie RPG forum up

Zombie RPG forum up

I started a forum for our zombie RPG game. You have to be registered with the forum to view the forum, and you must be approved before you can post. This will allow the participants (who will all be playing remotely) a chance to hash out details and discuss the campaign. I don’t expect it […]

The humans get to live … for now

The humans get to live … for now

Some of you have been following my zombie rpg game as “innocent bystanders,” and as such I wanted to give you an update on our little group, who is tucked away in a a sporting goods store while the rest of the world is afire. We didn’t play, but I did send out an email […]

Trapped like rats in a trap?

Trapped like rats in a trap?

After surviving an infested yoga center, science building, and hospital, the group of folks playing my Year of the Zombie campaign have made it to a sporting goods store. Already populated by a handful of survivors, the sporting goods store seems like the perfect place to hole up. Ammunition, camping food/equipment, few points of entry, […]
