2018-09-20 RPG Campaigns Closing

A few weeks ago I noticed that we had missed a few sessions of my English RPG campaign, the one where we played through Castle of the Mad Archmage. We had made it down to level seven, the crypts. Two key players had left the campaign because of childcare issues and the remaining players had a few casuals so we missed the minimum requirement I had set at the very beginning: three players required.

And so I decided to end the campaign. No grand finale, just some emails and that was it.

I invited the two German speaking players into my German campaign. But at the same time, one of the key players in the German campaign is returning to Germany. Again, love and kids. He’s been playing in my games for about eight years. Good times!

Ah, and I ended my monthly game with the kids. The three oldest kids often had other plans on Friday evenings. That left my friend Zeno and the three younger kids, and even them it wasn’t always easy. Sessions got cancelled, and finally I decided that enough was enough.

No matter what people say, it’s the actions that count. Life goes on, people change. It’s OK. Just look at this blog! Hardly any RPG content these days!

I’m out of the loop as far as social media goes. No longer visiting Google+, and I’ve stopped visiting the forums years ago. So I’m left with Mastodon. But my main account on Octodon so much more active and my time line so much more interesting than the accounts on both Dice Camp and Tabletop Social... I just don’t get into enough RPG conversation outside of my games, and my gaming life have been fading, so I don’t know when RPG blog posts are going to come back.


The blog is not going away, and hopefully the last campaign I’m in won’t close any time soon, and I’m still interested in Traveller, so who knows. I’m guessing this is just a temporary thing.

Thank you for reading and: Fight On!
