Writing.

For those interested in such I just finished writing chapter 6 of my novel and have started on chapter 7. It is tough going at times but I wrote almost 650 words tonight and over a thousand last night. I am getting back int he grove of it after taking a break. Organizing the book in yWriter 4 did help some to restart my brain and that is good. I am torn on trying to persue the traditional route of publishing once I am done and it is all editied and the like or going for the new model of podcasting the book. I may be putting the cart before the horse though. First finish the book and then figure it out.

So....

Game geeks of various stripes.


I just got through watching the finale of Jericho, which was really pretty good...if they were going to continue the show. I was thinking it would be interesting to run a Jericho game. Basically an early post apocalyptic game. Rather than the whole world has turned to crap and there are ZOMBIES everywhere, a more of the world is shaken and individuals have to take a stand try and rebuild. The concept of a game set in the second American civil war that is described at the end of Jericho could be really compelling.

The question is what system do you do a game like that? You don't want to go to rules light cause well the combat that happens should be more believable than a lot of rules light systems might reflect. I am looking for different peoples takes on the idea. It may not happen mind you but I am thinking about it.
