My fall 2018 game has just successfully completed! The adults and their child enjoyed themselves, and we are just doing some additional narrative to tidy up the end game.

...124 to run fleeing from the mountain. ...125 to use a rope to climb the steep cliff. ...126 to quickly cast "summon stairs." ...127 to dodge under the falling rocks.

This last week I finished up both the game I ran for the fall 2018 New Player Initiative and the game I ran for the 2019 New Player Initiative!

Which means I have time to run games for anyone, not just new players! laugh

Well, both of my groups are... Reaching the end of day 1. Ha ha! I guess we're just a little behind the curve. We've been exploring the system of Mouse Guard, which is rather in-depth. Plus the roleplaying is awesome! All 8 players are amazing, with plenty of ideas.

Game Master here hopes to speed things up a bit. As my first foray as a play-by-forum Game Master, though, I have to say that I'm thoroughly enjoying myself and learning some things along the way!

That is a very intimidating system for PbF. You are braver than me!

My Trail of Cthulhu PbF is going well. We are probably 2/3 of the way into the adventure... the adventure as written is a bit unspecific at some points (in order to avoid railroading the players) and I could have played a couple parts better in hindsight, but I think overall players are engaged.

Just finished my New Player Initiative, the first part of the Lost Mines of Phandelver.

I think everybody had a great time, I definitely did. One drop-out, but it was before we even got in-game, and everybody stuck through the rest of the time.

My 5e table has grown a little sluggish, which is normal this far in. Trying to prod it back into life...

Got home from our cabin trip last weekend. Had our first Starfinder game there, with a self-made mini-adventure. Think I might be interested in running it as a PBF, but might give it a year to let the experience perculate a bit. Really went nothing like I expected :D

My 4th Edition D&D game is still ticking along. I wound up with a really great group of players.

Congrats, I'm still working on my two, Cats and my 5e game. I've been having trouble keeping up the pace myself.

Just finished my Trail of Cthulhu game! Lost a bit of steam in the 2nd half of it (mostly my fault), so it didn't quite finish with a Bang as I wished. Also, I felt maybe the scenario was a bit too "purist lovecraft" for the players and myself. Still, all players posted often and were engaged until the very end, which I'm very pleased about!

My "Tales of the Village: Small wings and pretty things" game also wrapped up last week The little one playing enjoyed herself, and so too did her parents. (this was after kinda finishing at the top of this page in May, but continuing to narrate some things)

RPG next-gen committed!

My Mothership game has gotten sluggish and lost 1 player due to the slowing pace but I think this system works pretty well by Forum because the difficulty of a test is equal to their stats or below for everything, even initiative.

After my short vacation, I hope to push the pace a bit and see how that goes.
