NaBloPoMo 2013 Day 16 (late)

So, just finished watching Man of Steel with the Smalls. I have to say, this was a much better movie than I expected. Maybe a little too much collateral damage (which I’ve always loved, to an extent), but a pretty decent version of the Superman story. Even the ending, which I’d gotten spoiler-ed on, was handled better than I thought it would be. I also liked the super-speed combat (something I don’t think they handle in the comic books properly), but it was pretty hard to follow and looked a bit too computer-game-y. And it was nice to see Jor-El as a bad ass, rather than just a scientist who saves his son. Good flick.

I finished the DMing chapters in Numenera this morning, and I think I’m now going to go back and read the setting stuff. I jumped over it, as I’m not really ever expecting to run it in the provided setting. I’m thinking I do want to run it in the canned setting, at least for a few sessions, probably at the FLGS. Then I might repurpose it, or see how The Strange might work.

I’m also thinking I want to make some characters for some of the games I’ve found myself interested in over the past couple of years. I have some characters built for Bare Bones Fantasy, but I need to do some for Savage Worlds, FATE, and Numenera (and any others I feel I’ve missed). And I want to run short games in all of these rules, playtest style, adding what I consider to be a fair amount of experience each time, to see how each game handles higher level play.

That’s pretty much all I have for tonight. Later.
