Midnight Mayhem

I was discussing the upcoming session this Friday with the storyteller to be... Nedless to say he is a bit worried about how it will go and what we'll think of his performance... or what we will do to him if he fails.

Oh I'm sure he has nothing to worry about...

Call of Cthulhu

Hello readers!

Today was a fairly long day at university. Swedish university days aren't typically very long, as the focus in some subjects lie heavily on self-study. This includes informatics which I'm taking. Today we ended up having some quite interesting discussions on Information System Development (ISD) methods. Are they any good or not? Formalized methods seem to have seen their glory days.

I'm looking forward to this friday because our roleplaying group is having one of its very sporadic sessions - at last!

I've been playing Call of Cthulhu - Dark Corners of the Earth on the PC a lot recently. They've really managed to capture a sense of dread and horror in that game, so I wanted to try the tabletop version out. Luckily a friend of mine has been dying to storytell an adventure or two of it, so that is probably what this friday has in store. I've told him though I expect the same scares as I get in the pc game though, just so he knows the pressure is on.

Hello everybody!

As you might or might now this blog has lied dormant for a while, but now I hope for that to change. I signed up here so long ago I had actually forgotten about it, so it was quite a surprise to find my previous post here! An eerie feeling came over me.

Now for a little about myself. My name is Patrick and I'm currently enrolled at the University of Lund, Sweden, studying to become a System developer. I hope to write a little about everything, but my main interest to write about will be games.

I have a history of making websites that have games as the focal point. One of my very first sites was a quite successful site about Final Fantasy III, which I still recall as a very enjoyable game even though its been years since I've played it.

Besides computer games I also enjoy tabletop roleplaying where I carry the burden of being the storyteller for a not so bright group. Perhaps I will tell of our tales as well.

So I hope you stay tuned as we head into the world of games!
