Odd bits, here and there:
I had a chance to go, Wednesday night, with forestcats to the food truck event held weekly in Rowland Heights. Usually, there's six to eight trucks, but due to the rain, there was only two. One had pretty standard Mexican food; the only interesting aspect was that they made shrimp burritos and other dishes with fish and shrimp. The other vehicle was Jogasushi. They make sushi burritos. I had one, and it was delicious. No line, because very few people came out in fear of water falling from the sky, instead of spraying from sprinklers.
In all fairness, it had just finished raining, but the storm front had passed, and the sky was clearing overhead when we got there.
Very good food.
One other tidbit is that I've finally had a chance to get a look at a Traveller product for the SF RPG that I got at Gateway from the War House booth; I can feel a hankering to play or GM some Traveller! *Sigh*.
I've always wanted to try a space RPG. I remember looking at traveller a couple of centuries ago, but I don't remember why I didn't look into it any deeper. If you do decide to try a game, let me know.
I'm going to be honest with you: I really would rather play than GM. I mean, I could. I have some campaign ideas, for certain. But Traveller is a game system I'd like to play.
Also my problem. Never having used the system, I'd like to be a player before I try to run a game. Not that that's ever stopped me before. . . .
I'll make you a deal. Persuade maedb
; I'll try to persuade forestcats
and we'll trade off. I'll flip you for first dibs on playing. Fair?
Sure. (Just what we needed, another commitment.)
Now I gotta see if I can find some books on the subject. I don't remember if I ever bought any for Traveller.
I may have some of them electronically; I'll let you know. I may have persuaded forestcats
...but only maybe...
Jogasaki is our favorite truck! We stalk that thing...
Well, they're in Rowland Heights every Wednesday night...
