Origins 2013 Debriefing

Origins 2013 Debriefing So this year was my first Origins, and I really hope it isn’t my last. I had a great time playing 40 hours of games over the course of four days, even if I was averaging only 5-6 hours of sleep a night (or less). I picked up a signed copy of the Shadowrun 5th edition core rulebook, played or ran three different versions of Star Wars, scored some sweet deals in the dealer hall, and got to enjoy the...

Back with the Guild

Back with the Guild So back in my junior year of college, I think it was, I was the president of my college gaming club and had a blast. After taking nearly two years off from school, I’m back on campus, and was asked to be president again for one semester so that the VP can focus on her busy schedule before assuming full stewardship in the spring when she’s assumedly less crazy busy. This worked out perfectly...
