The final confrontation, rules issues & heading back to Sigil
The game on Saturday was as short as I had expected. We wrapped up the My Life with Master interlude, culminating in the death of the Master.
However, the path to achieving this was not eased by the rules. The clever method of comparing the statistics in different ways according to the task being attempted proved hard work to implement at the table. For all the brilliant premise of the game, we struggled with the execution. We shall definitely play another game in the style of My Life with Master, but perhaps using HeroQuest instead.
Thankfully, our minor troubles with the rules did not affect our enjoyment of the experience. The story was a lot of fun, and we improvised some great moments of horror. We shall return to this concept to create the backstory for villainous organisations in the future.
For now, however, the campaign is returning to Sigil. This coming weekend sees the birthday party for my youngest son, which means no game. Instead, I shall be busy with chores. This is not quite as fun.
So, the prep for this week is little more than the administrative tasks for the last session. I probably should take a look at some of the background tasks for the setting, to re-immerse myself in Sigil. I also have some game upgrades to include, so they also need to be sorted. Thus it is a quiet week for my prep.
