Struck the mother lode!

Well, maybe not quite.. But I finally reached 4 bux in Gomez.. Only another buck before I get payment, but it will be a while.. but I guess it is always something. I could always retire...

New blog

Today I started another blog where I write in swedish, so it is mainly for the swedish audience. So I'll write in both places as it strikes my fancy, but in general I'll reserve the international matters for here and the swedish stuff for the swedish audience there.

But check both places!

To my other blog.

Robert D. Anderson & The legacy of Cthulhu

I tried it out a little bit, but all I can say is that you probably have to be a true die hard fan of Call of Cthulhu to enjoy this. The bugs put me off it after a short while so I didn't play much of it, but for a fan made product it was impressive. But I think I rather play through Dark corners of the earth again than invest my time in this game.

On the first level you find a submachine gun and your character refuses to take it, saying he didn't like what they did in Chicago.. Then in a couple of rooms later, a german soldier kills you when he spots you in 2 seconds with full auto from an assault rifle... So guess your character likes the tough odds.

Call of Cthulhu

At last, another roleplaying session. It wasn't looking good, since none of my friends were able to make it except one of them. But we decided to go ahead and play anyway and it really turned out great. It worked really well and it was an exciting session with action and scares. I returned to the storyteller's chair after a very long hiatus and I personally think I did some of my best work.

It could be Call of Cthulhu is a good game to play like this because it in many ways focuses on the individual and their mental degeneration.

Hopefully we can set up another session soon.

Yesterday we had a family party where we enjoyed some crayfish. It was a pretty fun event. It had been arranged by my girlfriend, but sadly she fell ill just prior to the party so she couldn't participate. But we're planning to redo it once she is better so she can participate. We werent the only ones partying though, later after I got home I heard a neighbour placing music for the entire neighbourhood.

Before the party I also watched the movie Bloodsport. It is still a pretty cool movie.

The return of Isa

Yesterday was quite a hectic day. While visiting my dad my mom's dog, Isa, mysteriously vanished and despite us calling out and going looking for her she didn't make herself known. Granted, she has a habit of walking off, but rarely on her own or for very long. But yesterday she didn't show up for 6 hrs so naturally we started to fear the worst.

Although sometime during the night she came back, but she was injured and had trouble walking. So we can only speculate in what has befallen her.
