Note that applies to the next six months of Actual Play reports: I fell way behind on my AP reports so these are written many moons later based off my notes. The accuracy will likely vary greatly! Also, this is just transcribed from my notes. Things may be out of order!

This was the scheduled game. Some of the highlights that remember:

  • Fulla, punctuating her description of the meal she was serving to interrupt the hostility brewing!
  • Gefyon making a mess in the feasting hall and throwing her drink aside, perhaps afraid it has been poisoned!
  • Ran and Aurvandil like¬†Pyramus and Thisbe speaking through the crack in the door at night, sharing their affections for each other.
  • Ran then going to the bed she shared with her mother and father, and hatching a plan to marry her.
  • Tyr, speaking with Gefyon and admitting that she made him a wiser man, and that even if he could not fathom her reasons, he would heed her omens.
  • Daxo, maimed by Aurvandil and left bleeding but alive, for his sins.
  • Mighty Thorvald, blind and deaf to the words of Daxo.

This game was so good!

    First time playing Inheritance and I loved it. Have facilitated and played in it several times since. Everyone always appreciates how amazingly easy it is to get into character – and how much drama is generated –
    even with such a minimal background sheet.

    I also really loved Ran’s through-the-door moment with Aurvandil. It took me totally be surprise, because we hadn’t interacted at all during the feast.

    Also awesome for me, was Ross’s portrayal of Gefion. I felt very protected and supported by my mother, not terrified and cowed – which was great, and also not at all what I was expecting.

    Especially memorable for me were also my interactions with idealistic Ring and wistful Tyr.
