Back in Liverpool and back to work after a very pleasant week away. Now I have to sort out all that building work that I was putting off until after I came back (which my insurance doesn't cover. There's a shock :/). But it's Friday night so that can wait for a little bit longer.
On the plus side, game night is back to the Warhammer 'Enemy Within' campaign, which YAY nostalgia :D. This instalment is Death on the Reik
, which I think
we played all the way through when it was first published back in 1987 (LOLscary :D), although I don't remember any of the plot. I know we didn't get as far as the next part (Power Behind the Throne) because Steve started to read it and threw up his hands in defeat (from what I've heard it's long, extremely complex and not the slightest bit linear, so it's a bit of a nightmare for a GM to run. Our current GM seems to be happy to face the challenge, though, which is nice). Not much has changed since we played part 2 (Shadows Over Bogenhafen) last year. We're still ridiculous, immature, and entirely incapable of coming up with a coherent, well thought-out plan without resorting to hitting things. So, to put it briefly, it's a lot of fun :D
Anyway, for lack of much else interesting to say, I'm going to spend a little while spamming you with pretty pictures and stuff.
Firstly, here's a few pictures of Chipping Campden, where we stayed last week. Specifically, it's the outbuildings of Old Campden House, which was built by the fabulously named Sir Baptist Hicks at the end of the 16th Century and destroyed 50 or so years later, in the Civil War (the Hicks were Royalist, which the Roundheads obviously had something to say about). What remains (there were separate banqueting houses and whatnot) is still rather lovely though. ( Cut to save your friendspage :D )
