Now the HS group only meets once a week for about 90 minutes and we get stuff done BUT not a lot and once or twice a year I will give them on Saturday for 8 hours....my kids group meets once a week on Saturdays for three hours a day. There is some flexibility there and we have played a lot of different games and systems. My adult group meets about once a month for 8-9 hours a meeting, sometimes we can get a twice a month meet in there but that is a rarity. We are going to be finishing up our Pathfinder/Dragonlance game here in the next few months and I am going to be going back behind the shield again...something that I miss. Now don't get me wrong I like playing but I find my mind wanders a lot as a player and while it is easy to stay with what is happening in the game I am used to being the GM and wanting to stay ahead of the group.
Well I have been trying to find the next game I want to run this next session, most likely to last a year or more and I think I am going to give Shadowrun a chance. I have flirted with this game like a high school boy flirts with the new girl in school. I have had all the different editions at one point or another and this last edition (anniversary) seems to have boiled it down nicely. I might let the kids group look at this down the road for a one shot or a holiday session but not a regular game. I was speaking to some of the player's in the group about it and one is really excited and another has always wanted to try this so....off we go.
I will be looking at this for now in my free time, I have spent a lot of time gathering what I need now it's time to start making notes and moving forward.
