So I'm running a PTA game! My first game mastering, not counting one InSpectres 1889 romp, since Battle Without Honor or Game Balance five years ago. It's going well; we played the pilot in February and the second episode ("Help Me, My Aquatic Friends!") last night.

The show is called T.H.E.M. (it doesn't stand for anything), and it's about a team of kinda-sorta supervillains in a city controlled by shiny corporate superheroes. Which means I'm finally in compliance with the ten mention rule I broke in 2002 or something, plus I can steal liberally from myself, the Tatro-verse, even my notes for [ profile] weirdotron (possibly my favorite never played game, although there's a lot of competition in that field). Not to mention a zillion comic books. 

The players ([ profile] athenalindia[ profile] theclevermonkey, and two guys who inexplicably don't have LJs) are great. I originally pitched the game as "Grant Morrison's Dr. Horrible" but it's turning out to be a bit more of a soapy superhero noir with X-Files-y elements. I may get an episode recap up, depending how long Eli naps for.

Awesome. Glad you're back in the saddle again. :D

And hey, where's the obligatory wiki for this game? Unless there's a wiki, how do we know this "game" exists?! ;)

I cannot tell a lie - there's no wiki, there's a Facebook page.

Which goes to show that technology does not always improve with time.

Wait, that was *five years* ago? Wow. I remember back in the day thinking that Tanis & Co agreeing to meet back at the Inn in 5 years was a ridiculously long time. Now I don't even know where it went. And yes, 95% of my justification for this comment was a Dragonlance reference.

*desperately resisting a "Tika, how you've grown" comment...*

Get yer Tika-love out of my LJ, you weirdos.

That was really fun last night! I look forward to next week.

(However, I am exhausted today. Good gaming makes me think, and thinking keeps me from sleeping, and then having to get up at 6:30 this morning to traumatize medical fellows all day is not a best case scenario. I will attempt to not have that particular conflict again :) )

Yeah, I'm often wired after a game. I don't envy you your day of fake medical trauma.
