#RPGaDay2018: Day 16 - Describe your plans for your next game

The boring answer to this prompt is: 
  • arrive on time for once
  • gossip as we get settled
  • try to progress the plot (as we're playing towards a goal that, when we meet it, we'll be returning to Aberrant, and we're all looking forward to that a lot)
  • try not to roll quite as many botches as I've managed the past few weeks... (it'd be really nice to succeed a few rolls!)
So rather than talk about my next gaming session, I'm going to talk about plans for the next game after that's done. As mentioned, we're returning to Aberrant, but we're also returning to Pathfinder, so I'll start there.

We're returning to the 'Interlude' characters, who're currently working their way through some version of the Star Stone Trial, very different to the one in the book (rather more epic in scope). They're nearly done, my GM reassures me; I've not particularly enjoyed the character, although I think the concept is interesting, and we felt a bit adrift in the trial, really not knowing what to do most of the time. Their arc should conclude not long after they get back, and we get to return to our main characters! I've really missed Svetlana, so I'm looking forward to getting into her skin again. I'll need to read through my notes on where we got to, which is one advantage of this blog.

Then Aberrant! Chrissie's just been called to the jail where Adam's being held because he's behaving weirdly. What Chrissie doesn't know is that Adam's been hallucinating, including that their mentor Benedict is alive and calling to him from beneath the quantum lake that was Vienna, where they'd assumed he'd died. Hallucinating... or are the strange conditions of the jail allowing Benedict to contact him? Tune in next time to find out... (or, y'know, whenever we get started and however soon after that I get around to writing it up).

One cool thing about the Aberrant game is that Bells and Rich have been playing First Age Exalted with another friend, Ash, but that game is being put on hold so we can play Pathfinder. It would be trickier to integrate Ash into the Pathfinder game at this stage (and also possibly the group), but having gatecrashed their game and found I got on well with Ash, we're going to bring him into our Aberrant game instead. I'm looking forward to seeing what he comes up with, and how the GM will introduce him.

What about you? What plans are you ruminating over? Tell me, or link to your response, below.


  1. I am so envious of your games. Stop being so cool immediately!

  2. Bah, botches are fun!! (for me anyway)

    1. Hehehe. I don't mind some botches, but it has been a bit silly!:-D
