Well, It's 7:25am and I'm just coming home, exhausted.
But man was it fun. Every time I've been to the fortnightly 'gaming club' event called the "Tavernorca" here, it's been enormous fun. Last week there was a room full of gamers playing Lords of Olympus, and my appearance there provoked a cheer and a debate about whether Lords of Olympus in actual play is more similar to a Venezuelan or an Argentinian Soap Opera.
This time, several players abandoned their previous game to join Dark Albion, which I've had to put on a strict first-come first-serve policy in terms of players. Last session had been too hard to handle with 8 players, this time went way more smoothly when I capped it at 6.
The players love my game, and I'm loving these players. The best part is how young they all are. Two of my players are 16. None is over 25. Of the 30-70 people who show up in any given event, all of them are at those ages, with the average being maybe around 22-24. As a middle-aged guy, I'm a freaking dinosaur there. I'm by several years the oldest guy there. And while that does make me feel old in a way I rarely experience in a gaming context, it's super promising for the gaming scene here in South America.
Particularly compared to the stories I've heard of the state of things in the U.S. or Canada.
That's it. I'm going to bed. I have to game again in less than 12 hours.
