Shelley McTyre's Champions game

Recommended Posts

I remember reading a lot about Shelley McTyre's Champions game that she did by email. I can't seem to find any reference to it in these forums or online, but there used to be a lot on the web IIRC.

 

Anyone have links or comments about her game?

 

I ask because I am running a play-by-email (see link below) and I was going to use some of her materials to help new players.

Thank you, Shelley. You're the whole reason I tried doing play-by-email. And I love it. Thanks!

You GUYS! Thanks, this made my day (and thanks @Sketchpadfor letting me know about the thread). If there is a thing you're looking for specifically, let me know and I can go through backups. (I'd intended to take down everything except for Red October but couldn't bring myself to do it.)

Anything you have backed up and can restore to the  https://www.mactyre.net/archives/ site, I will likely use! I think a lot of people here will too!

 

PS: If this gives you the gumption to start a new PBEM, I'd love to be a part of that! :D

I am so glad you're having fun with it! I recently dug out some of my really old gaming stuff (like...play by snail-mail?! My dude, I am *SO OLD NOW*) to show my daughter and it's really neat to have the written record!

Just speaking the truth. 😄 

Have you been doing any gaming lately?

 

Nah, not much these days.   My husband was running a GURPS fantasy game when the pandemic started (just family, to get the kiddo gaming) and that worked right up until he got sick last summer (that was...not fun). Since then the closest we get is watching my daughter bluff her way through Among Us. 😇

 

You?

Tell her I said the young folk today are awful and the music these days sucks and the fashions these days are bad and it's all her fault.  

Also, please don't let her cancel me.

Oh, I love the Zoomers! I am also terrified of them.

How'd they get stuck with 'gen z' (gen X was not alphabetical) or 'zoomer,' anyway?  (I mean, ZOOM was on in the 70s).  ;)

It's not because they're using the Zoom App, is it?  Because Discord is also a popular app for the same thing, and The Discordian Generation (Hail Eris!) would be way cooler. 

(And, y'know, anarchism has sure made a comeback.)

 

According the American generation-cycle theory, they'd correspond the Silent Generation, supposedly an 'Artist' generation meant to quietly consolidate the gains of the Millennial  Hero-Generation and Baby-Boomer Visionary-Generation, while also laying a foundation of thought for the next generation of Visionaries (the way Beatniks and Jack Kerouac did for the Hippies).

I've been lucky enough to have had a great gaming group for the past two decades. I just had to split it into two groups a few months back. Unfortunately I'm not running Champions much these days, but that's how things go.
