Jodi Arias, accused of killing her lover, is on trial on Arizona and the ratings are through the roof. HLN is making out like a bandit on this one. Unfortunately, the State of Arizona is not: this trial is costing almost two million dollars. Trials are the new soap opera, and maybe it is time for states to treat them as such. They can gather sponsors for their live streams and recoup the cash. Just thinking!
There is a defiantly a meeting of worlds when it comes to writing and tabletop role-play gaming. Games like Prime Time Adventures and Fiasco are much more creative story telling than the classic RPGs of the past. Even in games like D&D, good groups of players build a story together rather than just letting the story happen around them.
So it is with excitement that last night I picked up my tickets for the train to go to Strategicon over Labor Day weekend in Los Angeles. With almost 1500 participants, it is large and fun. I will be running a couple of games so keep an eye out for them if you are attending. I am planning a Traveller adventure (but run under Savage Worlds rules), and at least one session of Paranoia. More on these as the event gets closer.
