The holidays are upon us and it is that time of year when I am forced to exit my home to spend time with the family. Although my wife and I enjoy it, she enjoys it much more than I do as I tend to get drained quickly and would like to go home, while she would like to stay longer. We have been married for 8 years and have worked things out where both of us are happy at least so I'm not really complaining there.

The pathfinder game we were playing at the in-laws house has been cancelled for the time being, and we were going to start back playing the Evil campaign I was running for them before (they made it from level 1 to 14 in Eberron D&D 3.5 before we paused the game). That at the moment has been postponed due to the holidays and extended family having housing issues and needing assistance.

The corrupted game I started at my own house has been going well at least. We've only played twice so far, but they were fun games to say the least. This last one had a first time amusement for me either running or playing a game. I've started showing my 19 year old cousin how to play, and although she has had fun she is still 19 so it's hard to pin her down to play with us at times. But this last time we played (11/15/13) her Cleric decided to start flirting with one of the NPC's they encountered. There was a father and his three sons and she decided to start hitting on one of the sons. This was exceedingly amusing watching her try to role play this (which she did great with); she finally got fed up with him after a while and through various circumstances she finally found out that he was really a demon in disguise.
This was entertaining to play through and like I said I've never had anyone try to do something like this in a game I've participated in.

So yeah all in all I've been busy. I am still working on Converting what I have of my Silver Divinity setting to Savage Worlds, it is just taking a moment due to lack of good thinking time.

Corrupted and Evil Characters; Running another game!

So we have only played once so far, but we are running a game at my house, which I talked about previously.

The main group I play with are my in-laws, and around 2009-2010 I DM'd my first big game for them. It was a D&D 3.5 game based in Eberron, and the characters were all evil in various degrees. I got a few questions regarding how that wouldn't work or would fall apart from infighting, but honestly the group took to it and ran with it with some enthusiasm.

They got to around level 14 (starting at 1 of course), and we put the game on temporary hold so I could get certain things situated with starting school and other various things.

Our current DM (my father-in-law) has decided that he wants to take a break for a little while and just play instead of DM. And I have been requested to resume the evil campaign I was running. I still remember where they ended and all the major events that happened up to where they ended, which is good as I know they won't remember any of it.

But it should be fun and interesting running a game at home and one at the in-laws house; and it should be amusing as in one game the characters are corrupted and the other they are just evil.
