It is with great saddness we announce that Lorcian, of the Monday Night Show, is leaving us. This coming Monday will be his last show for the station before he vanishes into the aether. In his own words:

Now that Dru has taken the reigns and The Station is standing on it’s own two feet, I think the time is right for me to move on.

I’ll be focusing on my Radio career properly now, I have just been given my third show on Bay FM and I’ll need all my spare time to do show prep and VT covers. So, I’m going to be really busy! Who knows where I’ll be in a few years time, but I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

I just wanted to say a few things. Firstly, I’m proud to have been involved with G3 Radio. I think it turned out to be something special, a community of friends. It’s turned out to be something I’ll always think back on with fond memories.

Thank you to everyone for their support and friendship over the past year. I’ll pop in from time to time to see how you’re all getting on. I know you guys will be great without me and I wish each and every one of you all the best for the future. I hope you achieve everything you want out of the station and I hope it continues to be one of the most friendly and welcome communities I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Good Luck G3, All the best.

Daniel Roth

Still recovering from last weekend’s epic.LAN event, to put it simply, it was great to see gamers just out in force, beer was had by all, drunken card games a plenty, and of course many games of LAN were played.

Overview

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is a TV show that I am sure most of you all know; if not here is a quick premises on the show and its ideas.

Buffy is a teenage American high school student, she is an attractive yet troubled student having burned down her last school. What the rest of the world doesn’t know is that Buffy is a vampire slayer and there is only one. She has been chosen to fight vampires and demons and other nasty things.

Ok the role-play game works around that you will be playing ever the original cast, which are all given stats in the book or you can start completely for scratch with your own cast of characters. Which can be anything that you want them to be, as long as you can come up with the concept for the character, you can play it from bog standard human to a demon.

Eden studio are the creators of the role play game they decided that the game would be aimed at fans and that it would be made for the average fan rather than for the regular role-play as a result of that the gaming system is a simple system that allows people to learn it very easily.

The system is cinematic, which means that the game runs like a film rather than being rules heavy like White Wolfs Storyteller system. So instead of being bogged down by large amounts of skills and large amounts of rules its keep pretty clean cut and simple which makes for a system that is pretty fast and rolls on constantly, thus allowing for a quicker progressing storyline.

This is the second part to my fortnightly blog on our groups. Just for anyone who hasn’t read the first blog (please do) I run two groups one is entirely male and consists of Myself who serves as the ever humble Games Master, Ginge, and our own Farseer Tyross and Raksha. The second group consists of Podgy, Yuki and Fallen angel.

The first thing to mention is that the male group was joined by two new players Typhus and Tucker and following on from their forced fail I gave them a new story line with a view to finding a magical item called the horn of Ramhia. This was to be achieved by doing a favour for an information broker (anyone seen Mass effect) which involved retrieving some money from a middle man and although the money was required the middle man wasn’t. The group actually put a little bit of thought into a lot of things this week including the background of how Typhus and Tucker came to be part of the group (a werewolf and a pestilence demon), and how to achieve the mission they had been set. They decided to be quite stealthy (hard for the pestilence demon who we all joked about the smelly ninja) and Ginge got very fluky on the rolls for the stealth check. They got into the room with said middle man and proceeded to take out the flunky’s (which with Farseer’s fire spells and Raksha hiding was very hard indeed).
