Need a game for healthy eating

I know I should eat healthy and all that. I have even read books and articles on what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat. Still I find myself having a late night snack of pop and a brownie, and not just here or there but far more then I should. What I need is a game, something tied to my social media accounts or that links to other people so that I rank among others. Then I could push myself to behave to just beat out the next guy or to get the top spot. There are a few things out there along those lines, but nothing that quite works for me. I need one that tracks what I eat as well as what I weigh. I am sure it is coming soon to a computer or gaming station near you….

A Ratling and a Goblin are in a tavern…..

In a tavern in Smith City the ratling and the goblin who have formed a loose association are reviewing the adventurer postings near the front door when they notice that one of the wanted posters was for another patron in the tavern.  Just as this duo were debating how to best approach the draconian to capture him and gain their reward, now if they could just read the wanted poster they have.  At about the same time the nomad notices that the draconian is on the wanted poster as well.
The necromantic nomad approaches the draconian hoping to apprehend him for the reward. He strikes the demonologist draconian who breaths fire in his direction scorching several bar chairs and a table. This also alerts the tavern security. In retaliation the nomad summons a skeleton causing panic to ensue in the tavern. To this the goblin creates a aura of darkness around himself as well as the ratling, and a wolfling that had been sitting at the table, they are now all under the table. Since the wolfing and ratling can not see in the goblins darkness they are safe from checking on the status of their sanity from the skeletons fear aura, but the goblin can see through his own darkness and is therefore subject to the sanity check. At this point the draconian unleashed a homunculus into the world. This leads to the ratling taking control of the mental faculties of the homunculus and commanding it to transport the draconian out of the bar. While the homunculus is not strong enough to lift the demonologist there is no resistance as the bouncers are shoving them out anyways.
Once out in the street the ratling touches the draconian causing disease on him that will persist for the next several hours. To create a distraction, or draw attention, the goblin starts to scream “Plague, Plague!!” which encourages the draconian to exit in pursuit of a safe place to hide to wait out the horrible illness that has befallen him.

Stay tuned for updates to the adventure in the next few days…..

Legendary Lives 2nd Edition

My favorite game to run is Legendary Lives 2nd Edition.  I have been running this fantasy based RPG since the mid 90’s.  In particular I like the open magic system and the ease of game play.  Since Marquee Press went out of business the authors have put the rule book on the web at www.hauntedattic.org.  There are several other RPG books available on the site including Lost Souls which I have always wanted to run but have not yet had a group interested.

I will be using this blog to post an update of my current groups adventures every other week.  Look for the first post telling about how they all met in the next few days.
