Albany Gameday

Back in 1999, Eric Noah decided to start a website to talk about Wizards of the Coast plans to change Dungeons & Dragons. "Eric Noah's Unofficial D&D 3rd Edition News"

He included a messageboard, with a few simple rules of courtesy: Keep it civil, keep it clean, and keep it on topic.

The Keep it clean rule was typically referred to as “The Eric’s Grandmother Rule".

When Russell Morrissey took over the site in 2001, the name was changed to ENWorld (for Eric Noah World) but “The Eric’s Grandmother Rule" remained the same.

While some members have found the rules restrictive, it was nice to talk about games without every conversation descending to vulgar language or personal attacks. This was my first real “internet community”, and many of my current friends I met through the ENworld Messageboards.

On Monday, 01/22/07 Eric Noah’s Grandmother passed away. She was preceded in death by her husband Merlin Hoguieson; and one of her daughters Marsha Hauge. She is survived by her other daughter Cheryl Noah, four grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

While I only knew of her in proxy, it is a sad loss.

One of the sites I frequent (as some of you know) is EN World. It is an RPG site, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on D20 games. They have existed in one form or another for 7 years now. (and I have been visiting it for 7 years now.) Their current "claim to fame" is that they are the organizers of the Official GEN CON Award ceremony ("The ENnies", by the way voting for this year's "ENnies" is currently open, and will be open until July 30th).

However that's not my topic for the day. Another great part of EN World is the Gamedays. Gamdays are "mini-cons" for ENWorlders (and friends) to get together for several 1-shot games. There have been gamedays in Chicago, Ohio, North Carolina, New York, Maryland, and luckily for me Massachusetts. We have roughly 50 ENWorlders who make up the regular Boston Area Gameday (usually only about half that number are available for a given event).

Somehow EN World Gamedays has attracted many really great DM's. I have played in some of the most memorable sessions at gamedays. In fact I am only aware of 1 time where a lame DM ran a game at a gameday (and I promise to do better next time).

The reason I am going on about this, is that the next EN World Boston Area Gameday is LESS THAN 20 HOURS AWAY.

I'll be playing:
"Neptune Adventure" (System : Alternity)
"Underoo Avengers" a team of 8 year old superheros (System: BASH)
A Serenity 'verse adventure (System: Cinematic Unisystem)
And a yet to be named D&D 3.5 game

Some of the other games going on are:
All Flesh Must Be Eaten
Discworld Game (System: Gurps)
Feng Shui (no not interior decorating)
End of the World Timeshare (System: Fudge)

It is a two day event, so don't expect to hear much from me till Monday
