Well that didn’t take to long to decided what to run this coming May. This afternoon I received my GM form for Cangames 2018 and several minutes later I submitted an adventure I hope to run.
So you can say that I’m all set for Cangames. I’ve decided to run a classic role-playing game called Skyrealms of Jorune, and the adventure I’m running is a home-brew scenario I wrote called “Midnight at the Oasis”.
I’ve been waiting patiently for the form to show up and once it did, I submitted the synopsis of the adventure and chose the time slot that I would like to see it ran at.
Cangames is the only convention that I’ve been attending faithfully now for pretty close to two decades now. Over the years my gaming crew had made the trek to Ottawa to partake in a day of rolling dice, chowing down junk food and gaming til the cows come home.
My gaming group has changed over the years, sometimes a caravan of cars heading to the big city, but these past couple of years just two vehicles from this town has made the trek. Gamers have come and go, but Cangames remains the same.
Each year I try to run a different game from my shelf so that I breathe some new life into an old system, maybe argue with another grognard over the interpretation of the game mechanics and what not. But, in the end it’s all good fun.
So this year Skyrealms of Jorune is the lucky recipient to be my Cangames pick. For those who never heard about this game, it was released back in 1984. It’s a science-fantasy role-playing game which is set among floating islands of earth levitated by mysterious crystals. Think of the movie Avatar for the setting but with the John Carter movie for the story and there you have it in a nutshell.
