[Actual Play: Our Last Best Hope] The Killer Asteroid

Started a solo session of "Our Last Best Hope" using a combination of Mythic Game Master Emulator and keyword generation (inspired by predictive text apps). I seeded the keyword generator with portions of a cut up and jumbled version of the 1998 movie script Armageddon

The cut-up job itself was done by an online app called "the cut-up machine." It's an implementation of a writing technique used by Burroughs and others. My use of it is meant to make the movie script a little less familiar.

So far, though it's only the first scene, it's turned out pretty fun.

Predictive text inspired tool (work in progress)

I've been using predictive text apps to delegate some of the decision making in the creative writing parts of solo gaming to something outside me. Just having suggested words out there already picks a direction for me, so I've found that satisfying. Now I have it available on my browser if I want. :)

New Lone Wolf Roleplaying forum at Google Groups

In my search for a better forum format, I've created a new Lone Wolf Google Groups forum. This one supports traditional forum discussion and Q&A formats.

AP: Realizing you might be the villain in the story (also, stumbling into a potential character arc)

So, I've been playing a solo game of Trollbabe, experimenting with various things in a search to take more of that "writing exercise" edge off it.*

However, what prompted me to write this bite sized AP is that the latest scene I played was probably the most immersive solo experience I've had so far, and probably the only time in my roleplaying career (social or otherwise) where a potential player character arc has manifested itself without any planning or engineering on my part.

Ripples In A Pond

I apologize ahead of time if my physics are all wrong...

Think of a rock hitting a pond. That rock represents the interaction you have with an external tool such as an oracle. For the purposes of this post, lets assume the rock represents a query to said tool.

Solo Gaming Appreciation Month 2016: Trollbabe actual play

I don't get to play a lot lately, unfortunately, but this is my way of doing my part for Solo Gaming Appreciation 2016 (#SGAM2016). Hopefully, more scenes to come in the remaining days of November, and if not, December.
