Summary of streaming for 2017

In 2017, I started streaming again, after a hiatus. As a side note, my first stream was playing Fallen London back in Sept 2014, and I was muted for the first 6 minutes of that. Wild to look back as see myself from just a few years ago.

So, I’ve been streaming for years, but not regularly. This last year I have started trying to be more regular. The schedule I’ve been trying out has been Wed-Sat at noon Pacific, for around an hour. I’ve mostly been sticking to it, but I’ve stumbled as well.

I’ve been using Restream so that I can broadcast simultaneously to Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer. They sent me an interesting little summary of my streaming for last year.

Restream summary for 2017

Since I got my new broadband installed in August, I streamed 74 times for a total of 67 hours through the end of 2017. My longest stream was 3 hours. Apparently I’m more active than 85% of Restream users and have streamed more hours than 78% of them.

That was essentially just in the last 4 months of 2017. That’s wild. If there’s that many people behind me, that long tail is long, innit?

ICRPG The Horde of Haghu, Part 7

The party agrees to join up with Lady Rana to take on ICRPG The Horde of Haghu, Part 7

This is a play session set in Nehwyreve, which is, with apologies to the memory of Fritz Leiber and his fans everywhere, an alternate-universe Nehwon, using the Index Card RPG Core system. I play a team of four companions (Rot, Ire, Ick, and Nit) through this scenario which I’ve adapted from The Secret of Urgaan of Angarngi by Carl Smith.

The Secret of Urgaan of Angarngi is from CA1: Swords of the Undercity, a module set in Lankhmar: City of Adventure, from TSR, Inc, circa 1985

ICRPG Trail to Ghost Mountain, Part 2

Getting the wagon train ready for the weird west in ICRPG Trail to Ghost Mountain, Part 2

This is an ongoing play session set in the weird west of Ghost Mountain from the forthcoming Index Card RPG World book, using the ICRPG system. I play a team of four companions (Fate, Fox, Fix, and Fez) through this scenario which I’ve adapted from Blood on the Trail by Shoshana Kessock.

I’ve also drawn inspiration from the game Gold Town and papercraft set Whitewash City by Eric Hotz

NYNG Conan

Modiphius just added a bundle of four digital books for their 2d20 game Conan: Adventures in Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of with a pretty good 46% discount, currently from $55.96 down to $29.99. This appears to be part of DTRPG’s “Why Not Try A Game You Haven’t Played Before” promotion, so presumably will not last forever, and perhaps only as long as the New Year sale for another 8 days.

The bundle includes the core book, player’s guide, Conan the Thief, and Conan: Jeweled Thrones of the Earth, so definitely everything you need to get started and going.

Triplanetary

Steve Jackson Games just started a crowdfunding effort for Triplanetary – The Classic Game of Space Combat, for some really old-school tabletop pew pew.

From the dawn of the hobby, a classic space game returns . . . Triplanetary depicts ship-to-ship space combat in the Solar System!

Steve Jackson Games Triplanetary

Triplanetary depicts ship-to-ship space combat in the Solar System using a vector movement system. It was designed by Marc “Traveller” Miller and first released in 1973. A second edition was released in 1981, but it’s been out of print since then.

Now, this long-lost game returns with a larger map and 5/8” counters! The new edition contains an alternative combat system for those who like more detailed space warfare, but the original rules are included and play just as well as they did in 1973.

Triplanetary is fun to play solo, and has scenarios for two, three, and four+ players. The quick, intuitive movement and combat rules are unchanged. All the scenarios from both editions have been collected, and new campaign rules added. This edition is lightly edited by Steve Jackson, who has been a Triplanetary fan since his college days.
