Schroedinger's Game


For many months I've just been a player, not running anything. It's my default state, really. But every once in awhile I want to run a game.

The problem, of course, particularly for me, is that there are just too damn many great games out there! It's like Schroedinger's Cat. There is a large probability wave of different games I could run, but each time I move toward one, another calls out to me.

I have a few restrictions. I won't run AD&D (or 2e or 3e or 3.14159e, or 4e). I'd run D&D, and have, but not as a regular thing.

I've spoken about this in the past to a friend of mine who is both in my face-to-face AD&D game and also works with me. So last night at the game, while we were trying to decide what to do next ...


... a little background here. When last we left our intrepid heroes, half the party was down, either dead or dying. The rest of the party was trying to kill three will-o-wisps. Not the easiest of challenges.

One player had to drop out for a while for family reasons, which brings the group down to a more manageable 7 altogether.

And we kind of all agreed that things weren't going the way we all wanted them to, and we needed a change.

We all still have faith in our DM, that's not the issue. But interparty things have occurred.

We need a change, and we'd like something different to cleanse our palates ...


... So, one of the options was a Different Game System. And another was a Different GM.

I opined that if I were to run something, it wouldn't be AD&D. My co-worker shortly thereafter suggested that I run Champions (second edition -- it's the one I'm most familiar with).

This met with general approval, and before I knew it I had been shanghai'd.

The probability wave has collapsed, and the game is Champions.

I came home and dug out my vintage Champions gear, and am getting ready to run a few adventures using it for the first time in literally decades.

And I couldn't be happier!
