Yes, I’m still alive and so is SWEF. We play about two to three times a week for several hours at a time. Everything is done online via Discord and Roll20. A big step up from the old chatrooms we used.
We had a “quick” game that was supposed to run for a couple weeks, but it lasted a month. That game just ended. We use these quick games to work out game concepts and sometimes the quick games turn into actual games, once they are completed. Meaning, if the quick game proves to be good enough, we will start a new game based on it.
My thing is that I like creating characters and playing something different every time. It lets me figure out what works for me and what doesn’t. Others are comfortable playing the same type of characters but with a different name. I think that’s fine for them, if they have fun doing that. Fun is why we play the games.
Anyway, I am down to one game a week now and I think I’ll keep it that way for a while. Real life sometimes kicks my butt if I try to add too much to it.
I hope everyone out there is having fun with their games. Just keep on rolling!
