Running MCC RPG for the first time.

I ran MCC (Mutant Crawl Classics) RPG “The Museum¬†at the End of Time” by Jim Wampler this past Saturday at Secret Door Games, Elkhart, IN.

The SeDoTu Crusaders had a great time, along with this judge, as we crossed the Glow Desert and entered the museum. One player lost all four PC’s early on. I don’t like when players aren’t able to play. So, I try to be creative with where new PCs can come into the game. As with a group that had previously entered the museum, I chose to add another group that had gotten lost/found in the museum.

The only thing about learning MCC is the mechanics of the Artifact Checks and the Artificial Intelligence check. Ok, you can laugh, but the “A” for both words confused me. “Oh bother. Which am I checking again? AI or Artifact?” Then I don’t know if I have the formulas correct. What do I check what against, again?

So, the usual antics occurred with this group. It’s not that they repeat the same gonzo stuff. The group of players that come to my games seems to come up with new and crazy stuff to try. One player said that I must have DCC underwear. I immediately came back that it doesn’t take any underwear to play DCC. (Well, maybe I said something else.)

I love to play DCC RPG and am falling quickly into playing MCC RPG. Just hope I can wrap my head quickly around the AI checks and the Artifact Checks.

But first, I need to make sure that I am prepared for the six events I will be running at GenCon 51 on August 8-12 for Goodman Games. See you at GenCon.


For the Writing of the Thing.

I’ve got the creative thoughts rumbling for adventure writing, but I don’t seem to have the energy or what I think I should have for the organization of these creative thoughts.

I work on a Chromebook. I’ve looked into apps for writing and help with organization, but I’ve not found one that willing fits the flow of my thoughts. I tend to “write by the seat of my pants”, therefore the organization is on the same line.

Index cards? Yep, shuffle them up and throw them on the desk. This should work, right? Ugh.

I had so much fun writing “The Heist of the Royal Jewels” for the Gongfarmer’s Almanac 2018. Having some encouragement to come up with more like it, I’ve come up with another idea. But I think I have overwhelmed myself with information. I just need to settle on just one thought and create around that.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer and author. Of what, I’m not sure. I’ve had lots of encouragement to write and get published. It’s the getting started and like what I’ve written in order to submit something.

I find it fairly easy to blog, journal, and just discuss what I’d like to do. Finding ways to be coached in the process is the challenge. I had fun in 2011 writing during NaNoWriMo (Nationa Novel Writing Month) in November.¬† I wrote over 50,000 words in 25 days. It was a good challenge. I had fun finding that I had a story within me to write. And as I look back over the story, it has a “dungeon crawl” within it.

So, now that I have summoned these words…I hope it sparks some coaching from those of you who write and have written an adventure module or more. I also hope that these words can get me to write, at least, the first sentence to an adventure module or two.
