Star Trek TOS

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on October 11, 2011

And we’re back….just imagine, that it was a really long commercial break and you got yourself a sandwich and a beer. Anyway, I just thought I’d  begin to update you on what I’ve been up to. Life is settling in to the new routine (new job for S, new school schedule for the minions, new boss at work, etc. and so forth).

On the geek front, I haven’t been doing any gaming really, but that is shortly to change as I’m lining up some time to run some Aega Mythea with some old gaming buddies(Think D&D/C&C/The Atlantean Trilogy meet the mad mechanisations of Adaen) and a game is pending with S and the minions (score!).

In the mean time, I’ve started watching Star Trek. The Original Star Trek. All the way back to the pilot. And I had forgotten just how cool it was and still is. And let me tell you, there is some seriously hot chicks on that show. Case in point, the lovely Sherry Jackson: “Andrea the Android” from the “What are Little Girls Made Of?“. Here’s a link to a really good summary and some other stuff. Ok, ok….the pictures are just gratuitous hotness, but I thought I’d make the post worth while for those who don’t care much about my gaming/watching activities. Loveliness aside, watching the old series after so many years, really makes me want to run a space game…Maybe it is time to crack open the Star Siege? Hmmm. I’ll leave you with that thought….more stuff to come.

Gratuitous Megan Fox Pic – Again

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on February 9, 2011

Once again, I got a huge spike from an old (essentially off-topic) post of a Megan Fox Pic….Google must be fooling with their algorithm again.

Just because…

Aega Mythea Dev Backonline!

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on February 9, 2011

I’m back to working on my game…very rough draft of text is in the making. The concepts are all in my head. Just need to get them into type!

Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And onto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure! – R. E. Howard

Introduction

Welcome, dear travelers! You have wandered far from the days of ordinary life into the age of myths, the Aega Mythea (ā-ˈēg-ə mitḣ-ˈā-ə). A place in time when great heroes did great deeds…things to be remembered in ages to come. You, no doubt, have come to claim your piece of glory; to fullful your fate or to be master of your own destiny…Still unclear what I’m talking about? Let me explain…No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Aega Mythea is a pen and paper role-playing game set in the mythic past; a time of swords and sorcery when deeds were done boldly, magic was a potent force, and heroes were larger than life. There’s a long history of pen and paper or table-top role-playing games which I will ignore other than to refer those unfamiliar with such games here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game_(pen_and_paper). Suffice it to say, that I have played many of these games and enjoyed nearly all of them. So why create another one? Why not create it? Aega Mythea is the distillation of my gaming history, taking the best of what I liked and embodying it in an integrated form with a singular goal of steering play stylistically toward what is most important to the players.

Under the Dying Sun

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on November 10, 2010

I’ve recently signed up to playtest Under the Dying Sun by the Fiendish Doctor Samsara in a play-by-post game….Here’s my first character. Here’s our OOC Thread on RPG.net.

 

Dea-láidir of the Pit

Trueman Slayer

STR: 10
DEX: 8
CON: 10
INT: 2
WIS: 6
CHA: 4
Sword Specialization

Dea-láidir was born in the breeding pit of Heseian the Unholy on the longest night of year, under a moonless sky. Because he was born strong and healthy, he was trained and conditioned, literally from birth to be a fighter in the gladiatorial arena.

When he came of age, he fought as a gladiator with great success. A sword in his hands came to be feared as he cut and carved his way to some reknown in the arena. As he was what may be termed “born in captivity”, he knows little of the ways of the world and is somewhat dim-witted. The concept of gaining his freedom by any means other than dying never occurred to him. But as the gods willed it; that was not to be his fate. During a brief uprising among the gladiators, one of his compatriots told him to “follow me”. So Dea-láidir did and in the process managed to escape…

Equipment:

Starting “Coins” 40

Bone Daggers x3 -27
Food for 3 Days -6

Total Remaining 7 coins
