Off to Try to Recapture My Youth

No time for a full-length blog entry today.  I'm going off to the "tavernorca" event, which is a new fort-nightly "RPG Gamer's bar" that has been set up by the great people behind!   There, I'll be running Dark Albion, and specifically starting an Inquisitor's Campaign using the (as yet unpublished) material from Dark Albion: Cults of Chaos.

This is the first real RPG gaming club to exist in Montevideo, that is to say the first one that has an actual locale that is regularly opening, in about 10 years.  When I got here 13 years ago, I would spend long long nights gaming at the gaming club that existed back then.

But now, I'm looking at it with a little dread.  The main organizer was strongly after me to attend, and I'm definitely looking forward to it, but it doesn't even START until 10pm!  No, not a typo, it goes from 10pm to 6am.  That's actually a pretty normal thing around here, and certainly the old place had similar hours.  And back then I'd walk out whistling and maybe go for a coffee.  But that was 12 years ago.

Being the bad boy celebrity of the D&D world is a game for the young.

I guess we'll see what kind of shape I'm in when I get home. Wish me luck!

  1. The long sleepless nights of RPGs of my youth. Then you change to a more normal hours in the afternoon, and when you try again a all-nighter is like hell.

    1. Well, I have one advantage. As a guy whose career has been totally based on 'creative' stuff and never 9-5, I've never kept regular hours, even now. I'm not normally asleep at 3am, so it's more just about being out and about instead of working comfortably at home.

  2. You could not pay me to attend something that started at 10 at night. Not that I could anyway with two little kids.
