I have been doing a good bit of YouTube streaming.

 

For resolution #7, I am to play more games.  And maybe these Blizzard games are the ones; Overwatch and Heroes.  Overwatch is just so convenient and quick.  10 minutes per game.  Heroes requires a 30 minute investment, but I’m much better at Heroes.

Anyway I have set up YouTube to stream, and this is convenient as it automatically adds my video to my own video library on the channel.   It works pretty damn well!!

2017 resolution #4 is to play more games.  And Saturday morning I did.  I had a round of Imperial Assault and then half a round of X-Wing.

This was a good time.  Often I don’t think about playing games in the mornings, yet I went over to Sean’s house and had a great time.  If I hadn’t I’d have been sitting at home!

In Imperial Assault, I tried out the rancor and Jabba.  The rancor underperformed.  He went down too early, but I think I rushed him in which was a mistake.  Jabba however; he’s kinda expensive at 6 points but I think he may have won the game for me.   For armies with lots of individual models that are cheap he grants one victory point for each one removed.  Those can add up quick.

It was really great and I was glad to get these games to the table.

We continue the descent down to the Center of Aereth in the family campaign.

As I have often stated DCC has been very good to us.  I really like these modules and this campaign is 7 or 8 months old which is really quite good.

The combat is slowing down, however.  This happens in most rpgs as the characters advance and everything grows in hit points.  The solution can be to increase damage and cut hit points of the adversaries.  I will look at this.

My one complaint with DCC continues to be lack of coherent story.  I have tried to weave in my own story, continuing with the goat man introduced in Portal Under the Stars, but the party is not asking about this and to me there is a lack of motivation for the party to journey down or anywhere.

I realize this is touted as a strength, and is a strength for many people.  Keep it simple, keep it episodic.  Old school.
