I have just uploaded this years Christmas Special. It is set in Victorian London and features much drunken revellry and the general violence which seems synonymous with our Christmas Specials. It is run in a system that Robin has designed which seems excellent for one off games This will become available shortly I would expect.
A Marvellous Christmas - 2005 Xmas Special
Also, I have not put an annoying jingle through the back of this one (although I was tempted by something by the Cheeky Girls or something). It is also the absolute file and not and M3U so the link about should start a file download and not play the file. I will get an M3U up shortly and drop it in here for those who like to stream
Hope you enjoy it
So, are you and Robin posting the system anywhere?
And can I say all kudos to Lindsay for putting work above roleplaying. I am in awe of you as I could never do that when I was at uni. 8)
I beleive they will be posting it. Im not sure if RObin has it available in a format ready for posting, but as we are recording ToEE tonight, i shall ask him.
And im as suprised as you re working, but i want a first, so best keep it up....
Cool! best we could do while I was at Swansea was a 2:1 (I... well I passed my degree, but not by much). Did better when I did my masters, mainly cos I had a lecture for 1/2 of the time the rpg soc had it's meeting.
I think I finally got a work ethic somewhere in my mid twenties...
Well, im mid 20's now, so im hoping to develope one soon...
I wish I had a bit more of a work ethic back when I was at university. It is a bit odd to me that most of the people I know that program have degrees in other fields, but work in computers and I actually went to University to study computers but never finished my degree program.
I’d thought (from the sessions I’ve participated in) that role-players tended to either Problem solve or get their characters into violent conflicts (usually with the NPC their suppose to talk to) with a light hollow sprinkling of a gesture towards characterization.
But with this Victorian Christmas special I realised I’ve missed out...
The lapse into cliché
Paul’s attempt at The 13th Duke of Wybourne (from the Fast Show, see link below if you don't know this comedy character) was hilarious.
I’d love to hear another game set in the Victorian era.
“With my reputation?"
And was that a French accent from the young lady (I’m not good at guessing accents)?
