Old habits

So for the first time in a while I find myself playing in a game and its pretty good to roll the dice as a player. The game is Call of Cthulhu using the Achtung Cthulhu books and set in the early stages of the war.

Something has been playing on my mind though, despite having reasonably competent skill ratings  I seem to be failing to make skill checks; perhaps this is to be expected or maybe I have failed to live up to my tradition when starting a new game.  So I have taken steps to rectify this situation by buying a new set of dice; this time I’m going old school and have ordered a set of white inked red Gamescience precision dice.  I know its a silly superstition but you never know these dice may live up to the hype.

I shall let you know in due course if my new dice do indeed roll true and are better luck than the ones I’m currently using.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on as a game designer.
