Saturday, we ran a playtest of High Strung, and included the various things I have prepared for enhancing the PC's engagement with their jobs and families. It all worked a treat! The characters' families and jobs were front and center, and even some job days were played out. The Nasty Cards came out again and were flying back and forth! It brought a whole new dimension to the game. I am *really* happy!
IRC game went splendidly, as always. I have a group of the most amazing
roleplayers, who literally don't need me to play. Whenever I have to
miss a session, they have a GMless session and run a game without me.
Today we ran three scenes, none with any appreciable conflict, but it
was all wonderful! They delved deeply into their characters and pursued
lots of individual goals. This is not Space Opera, this is Space Soap
