Moonlake,  I will give your stuff a vote, but I think you should combine some of these chapters into a single unit.

Can you give my beardspider post a once over

d**n... you OOOOOLD.


Seriously, that's both impressive and sad. I know from my on and offline gaming it can be difficult to coordinate with a group and sometimes difficult to keep things fresh. So 33 years is nothing to sneeze at. Be proud of that.

I'm actually reading a book right now, bought during a recent bundle of holding (http://bundleofholding.com is you like cheap PDFs; something new every week), about campaign management and the difference between managing a campaign and running the individual sessions OF the campaign, and how they're different skillsets. It's got some interesting thoughts.

Moonlake commented on your prologue.  It is so short! Almost like a back a cover piece.

Do you want votes on that stuff  as part or just once the book is done?

Axle, whether you want to vote on each Chap or not I don't really care. It's really the comment that I want, esp. in response to aspects that I outline as separate ideas under each Chap but in general as well.

Any sub of yours you want me to read in return? If you don't have so short a sub, don't worry. I've decided to change the terms so that it's 2000 words per Chap incl. Prologue else it's getting too complicated.

Whoooa! That sucks man!

I know the feeling, but in a way it is lovely to let things just be.

I just started up again, after a several year long break. The players were begging, and I handed all management and hosting responsibility to the most eager one.

"From now on, I will GM the game and prepare a plot. You do the rest. You are der f├╝hrer", I said.

Bittersweet congratulations on a crazy long run!

I haven't played for a long time now, but back when I did our longest running campaign was maybe half a year. We tended to stick with fantasy and some Shadowrun and such, but we seemed to swap GMs and change up games quite frequently. Because of that, 33 years is mind boggling. So many kudos for keeping it going that long. Incredible feat!

"I knew you do love me, Elly! Well, I overheard the doctor's name, Kraljevic. I now remember the bugger."

Now you do that I increased the reward? Love does not blossom in such dishonesty, dear Tycho.

"Remember how I told you I worked on Groombridge II?"

Yes, you little rat, you embezzled a serious wad of money from Neogen Corporation, and left the ground team starving for seven days. Then, you had to run for the Fringe lest Neogen enlist you as a test volunteer for their newest NBC warfare program.

"Well, this Kraljevic guy worked there in the third wave of exploration of those ruins Neogen and the military and everybody and their mother are so anal about. And, now he's here, digging again, but without corp support. I guess he went freelance, or he's undercover. Back then, the suits would not even let him speak to the cute waitress at the port cantina. Always in a sandwich between two sleazy agents, he was."

To avoid divulging all the juicy research in post-coital bliss or over a cup of coffee, of course.

Regardless, this may be worth a fifty - if Tycho adds a little more snooping around.

"I really could use a cup of coffee" the doctor whispered to Autumn on the side.

While Carnegie attended to Elvis, oblivious to the battle, it raged without her.

Marcus, full of battle fury, struck out with his axe again, but his injured opponent stepped back and his ax cleft air.  As Marcus's axe swept by him, he slashed up with his baton and struck his arm solidly  (8 points impact, plus 1 point electrical)..

Asha fired and her shot hit home - the submachine gunner jerked as her round hit him. Moments later Anya's shot stuck and he fell backwards.

The lead figure with the gun fired again, but his wild shot stuck the ceiling and ricocheted harmlessly.  Marcus took the opportunity and smashed his axe into him, slamming hard into his chest and dropping him.

The baton-wielding Guard from the second rank scooped up the dropped SMG and brought it up to fire, another flock of bullets sailing into the elevator room, making Carnagie's impromptu surgery that much more exciting.

It didn't look like Elvis was going to die now, once she got the bleeding under control.

Carnegie looked down in panic at Elvis, laying motionless at her knees. She checked his pulse and breathing, once she was sure he was still alive, she breathed a sigh of relief and then took a deep breath, ignored the gunfire and started rummaging through her backpack. First thing's first, it was a bullet wound and since he was unconscious she better try and remove the bullet if she could. She drew her knife and took her bar of soap and ran it across the blade, then she took a bottle of cattail hooch and drenched it, she prayed it was strong enough stuff to disinfect it.

Her blade inched carefully into the wound and pried at the bullet. Once she had dug it out, she then ripped up her pre-war casual wear to make a make-shift bandage, she hoped that would be enough to stop the bleeding. She bent her head down and sat there trying to prevent the blood flow while she waited for the senseless killing to end.

(15)+6, total of 21 for heal check.
