RPGaDAY 2022 catch up #4

You can find my past RPGaDAY2022 catch up posts here in Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Another busy week in another busy month in another busy summer has come and gone. Again I’ve been very grateful to the family members who came to help out with our summer projects. With how things have been things are starting to look up. I can’t wait to get this cast off of my foot so I can start doing normal things again. I’ve been enjoying reading the #RPGaDAY2022 posts that I’ve come across. It makes me wish that I could get a bunch of friends around a table to actually game. When some of these time-sink projects are done, I may be a step closer to actually hosting again. Until then, here are my RPGaDAY2022 entries for days 22-28.

Day 22: Who is your current character?

This is Dr. R’imr, the Caitian Lieutenant CMO of the Saladin Class USS Acrux. This is in an online Far Trek game that is being run on the Roll20 virtual tabletop website. So far none of the other players have noticed that the character name came from Red Dwarf.

Day 23: What situation is your character currently in?

We were sent to find out why a colony was not responding to Starfleet. When we arrived we discovered Klingons on the scene who were looking for a weapon. What’s really interesting is that the adventure was written by my friend Roger Taylor and adapted to Far Trek. I’ve been on my honor to not pull up the adventure and look at the notes.

Day 24: When did you start playing this character?

At the beginning of 2022. If we are lucky we get a chance to play once a month. Even then, I’ve had to miss a few sessions due to real life getting in the way. Yes the eternal struggle of gaming.

Day 25: Where has that character been?

Boldly going. Oh, more specific than that. The colony is named Tannos IV with “Madsen’s Hope” being the main colony population center.

Day 26: What does your character do what they do?

R’imr studied medicine and joined Starfleet to get away from the homeworld of Cait. He didn’t feel like he was making a difference there so he decided to leave and offer his services to Starfleet. He loves dispensing wisdom when he uses his catchphrase “Now listen to your doctor when he says…”.

Day 27: How has your character changed?

I’m still exploring this. As I noticed changes, I’ll try to report them here.

Day 28: Style Sunday: Roll 1d8+1, tag that many friends with your favorite RPG cover art.

Well once again I can’t really tag anyone in this format. So here is my favorite cover art.

Star Trek: Lower Decks season 3 mailer

OH look what arrived today.

So earlier this month I received a DM from @StarTrekonPPlus asking if I wanted to receive a special mailer that would celebrate the Season Three premier of Star Trek: Lower Decks on Paramount+. Of course I was interested and I followed the instructions given to RSVP. I was thinking that this would be something that could be sent in a large envelope with a few kewl SWAG items.

Boy was I wrong. And boy am I happy about that.

As you can see from the photo above a very large shipping box arrived. It was very well packaged that it took two of us to safely get it out of the container. As my oldest clamored to find out what was inside, I had the bright idea to start taking photos of everything as we pulled them out so I could share them with you. Here is what we saw before pulling everything out.

You can hear voices singing “Aaaahhhh!!!!”

My box arrived undamaged. I had heard from some other Star Trek fans that their box had encountered mishaps during delivery which resulted in the poster being bent. Luckily everything appeared OK with my delivery. There was a combination of green paper filler and bubble wrap at the bottom to help protect the items inside. The box itself could easily be used to hold collectables. There was also a card with some details of the cookies with raisins from the Boimler Family Vineyards.

Something sweet to eat.

I don’t know why the cookies caught my attention first, but they were the first things that I wanted to look at. These oatmeal raisin cookies will be enjoyed by me while watching the first episode of season three. My family are not big raisin fans so I’ll get to enjoy them myself. These cookies are HUGE. On the back was a list of ingredients and information about Fleurs el Sel, the bakery that made the cookies.

The front label of the Ketracel White-Hot Hot Sauce.
The description on the label.

The next item that I pulled out was the Ketracel White-Hot Hot Sauce. “Locally Sourced” from Gama Quadrant ingredients. I also had to snap a photo of the description as it was bottled for Quark Industries. Since my family is not big on hot sauce and it is factory sealed, I can see myself keeping this as just a collectors item. There wasn’t an actual company listed for creating the product, but the ingredients label did state it was distributed by HSH Inc out of North Port, Florida. I wonder if there will be a reference to this hot sauce in a season three episode?

The Lower Decks III hat to cover your head.

The tye-dye reversible cap caught my daughter’s attention. She begged for this item after I was done blogging about this SWAG. She has already worn it around the house. Created by a company called Simplicity, the tag states that it offers 100% UV protection. Because I won’t be able to resist the puppy dog eyes of my child, I don’t think I’ll be the owner of this for very long.

Now I just need a Star Trek pen.

This special min-notepad had a special message from Ensign Brad Boimler on the last page (see sub-note at the end of the blog). There was no indication on which company created this wirebound notepad. I’m not certain what I’m going to do with this (use or keep as a collector’s item).

Starfleet Strong

Next was a pair of blue Starfleet exercise wrist bands. I could see Mariner wearing these. There was no indication on the package or on the bands of who made them. My daughters may end up fighting over these as they don’t fit my wrists very well.

Singing: Yo, I got myself a fanny pack. They were having a sale down at the GAP.

I haven’t owned a fanny pack in years. I can also see myself using this item on certain occasions. It is transparent so I could use it for carrying items into areas where they need to do quick inspections before entering. Like some of the other items, there was no indicator of who made this SWAG.

The Rutherford poster arrives undamaged.

One of the things I noticed from other Star Trek fans posting their SWAG on social media is that the poster was random. My poster contained the character of Ensign Sam Rutherford as voiced by Eugene Cordero. As mentioned above, some fans had damaged posters when they opened up their box. Luckily, mine came through with no issues.

Thank you to the gang at Paramount Plus for these kewl items. We had fun unboxing everything and looking things over. I’ve always loved Star Trek: Lower Decks because the writers and artists put a ton of Star Trek Easter Eggs in the show for fans to find. I’ve been eagerly waiting for the third season ever since I chewed out Mike McMahan on Twitter for the tear jerker ending of season two.

Sub-Note: I was just kidding, there is no special message from Boimler in the notebook. Just the thought of a bunch of fellow Star Trek fans scrambling to see if they had missed something made me chuckle. I’m certain my wife will allow you to smack me on principle when you see me.

RPGaDAY 2022 catch up #3

Here is my catch up post for #RPGaDAY2022. Links to Part One and Part Two. It has been a very busy week for me and I am eternally grateful for all of the friends and family that came over to help sheetrock a wall in my garage while I was out with my broken foot. This blog post covers days 15-21.

Day 15: Who would you like to Gamemaster for you?

I noticed a lot of people were listing celebrity GMs that they would like to try out. For myself, I’d like to have my friend Jeff Sullivan return to the GM chair. He did such a wonderful job with the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 campaign that lasted several years with a group of friends. You could see his love of the game, skill in being a referee and how he used the game to make teaching moments for both experienced and new players. Some of his house-rules I’d like to use in my own campaigns.

Day 16: What would be your perfect game?

The game that is so enjoyable that we talk about it afterwards and can’t wait to return to the table. I know that I’ve mentioned some of my past gaming exploits in various blog posts, but I’m going to talk about another one again. We had a FASA Star Trek RPG session where the night ended on a cliffhanger. All of the players kept in contact with each other during the break talking about how we were going to pull our fat out of the fryer. And this was in the days before text messages, instant messages or even the common use of email. We did this all by various phone calls between the individual players. I’ve also noticed that I’ve done the same with computer or card games. If I’m thinking about strategy or how I can improve my gameplay, then I must be enjoying the game.

Day 17: Past, Present or Future? When is your favorite game set?

This is a hard one because I can play in all three settings. Some specific things, like horror, don’t appeal to me. Not because I don’t like that genre, but I had a hard time seeing it translated into a theater of the mind style RPG. If I really had to pick one setting, I think it would be future.

Day 18: Where is your favorite place to play?

At my house. My snacks are there. I’m comfortable. I didn’t need to travel far. Sure I had to prep the house for guests, but that’s a good thing. I also wouldn’t mind playing at a friends house as well, but I worry about games that go into overtime. I wouldn’t mind playing at a convention or a gaming store, but I worry about the noise and distractions.

Day 19: Why has your favorite game stayed with you?

As most of my readers know, it’s the FASA Star Trek RPG. This is because of several reasons. 1- It’s a licensed Star Trek game. 2- The character creation process fascinated me. 3- I thought the percentage system gave us more unique characters. 4- Starship construction rules helped fueled my imagination and creativity. 5- It inspired other Star Trek media and episodes. There are FASA Star Trek references even in Star Trek Discovery episodes and recently released IDW published comics.

Day 20: How long do your games last?

Playing a game, that’s up to the GM and other players. On games that I have run, I try to limit a gaming session to 3-4 hours. If we can’t get at least two hours of game play in, then we need to try again. We get so little time to actually sit down that we need to make sure we get value out of our time.

Day 21: Setting Sunday: Share an intriguing detail from a game setting you enjoy.

I had to think about this one. The answer that I finally decided was the exploration of the unknown. I don’t know what is behind that door, over that hill, across that ocean or on that planet. There are new things out there and I get to discover them with my friends.

RPGaDAY 2022 catch up #2

So after completing the RPGaDAY catch up #1 last week, I knew that I was going to try for a second week. So here are my entries for days 7-14.

Day 7: System Sunday- Describe a cool part of a system that you love.

I’ve been thinking about this one for a while. There have been quite a few cool features in a few different role playing systems. Some I’ve actually tried, some I’ve only read about. I think I’m going to talk about the first cool thing that stood out to me in a system. The Star Wars RPG by West End Games had a feature where each character had a quote that helped define that character. Even in all of the different supplements, if there were stats for a non-player character, they had a quote. It helped make the characters seem like more than just a set of numbers on a piece of paper.

Day 8: Who introduced you to RPGs?

I really wish I could remember the names of the people I played with over thirty-five years ago. I would like to thank them and ask if they are still playing now. I remember a lot of other names and faces from over the years, but I couldn’t tell you who first showed me that Dungeons and Dragons book back in elementary school.

Day 9: What is the 2nd RPG you bought?

This one was easy. While I cut my teeth on Dungeons and Dragons like most players at the time, I was also a big Star Trek fan. When I finally had the money to get the Star Trek Role Playing Game by FASA, I picked it up. While I didn’t get a chance to play it until later, I’ve still be a fan of this system even today.

Day 10: When did/will you start Gamemastering?

While I may have run a few friends through a session, my first memory of being a Dungeon Master was an attempt to introduce my bothers to the game. An attempt that became a complete disaster. You can read about it in my RPGaDAY2021 entry here. I have several other memories of running Star Trek sessions later.

Day 11: If you could live in a game setting, where would it be?

Another question I had to seriously think about. The fantasy setting of Dungeons and Dragons would be interesting with the wonderful magic and the variety of creatures that are found there. But when it comes down to it, I’d really love to be in that brave new worlds that we see in Star Trek.

Day 12: Why did you start RPGing?

Friends. Pure and simple. I got to hang out with friends and laugh with them. We had to scheme, we had to work together, we had to be creative, we had to use our imaginations. I heard someone call RPGing a drug-free group hallucination. I actually believe this as a good thing.

Day 13: How would you change the way you started RPGing?

That was so long ago, I’m not even certain. Perhaps introduce my father to the game so that he would understand my interest in it. I inherited a lot of my geeky interests from him. It would have been nice to share one back.

Day 14: Suggestion Sunday- Roll 1d8+1, and tag that many friends and suggest a new RPG to try.

Well any chance to roll a die. I rolled a six. I can’t really tag anyone in this format so I’ll just list some names.

Erica Abner
Jeff Sullivan
Dave Stock
Stewart Hunsaker
Marla Trowbridge
Kevin Hancock
Erin Ruston

The game I’d like to try would be FrontierSpace. I don’t know the scenario yet, but I’d love to try out the system.


Another week of good questions. It will probably be another week before I can post on this subject again. I’m not a doctor, but I believe the foot is healing. I can’t wait to have this behind me. Re-learning how to do a lot of things has been a pain. I’ve been very thankful for the family and friends who have been supportive during this time. I would like to also thank those who read my blogs and send me feedback.

RPGaDAY 2022 catch up #1

In August 2021 I participated in the #RPGaDAY challenge. I was able to complete all 31 days that had a variety of subjects to blog about. It was an interesting challenge. As you can see from the schedule posted above, they changed the format to follow a Who, What, When, Where, Why, How and a special Sunday question.

I was interested in participating this year, until recent events came up. There is a physical challenge in posting for 31 days while still interacting with family, friends, work, hobbies, etc. After I had broken my foot, I knew that there was no way I could post on a daily basis. So I’m going to try to do the next best thing. When the schedule allows it (between leg rests) I’m going to play catch up and try to post the recent entries into one blog post.

Day 1: Who would you like to introduce to RPGs?

I’m assuming that this introduction would be for people who have never played a role-playing game before. There are certain members of my Star Trek fan club that I wouldn’t mind introducing to RPGs. Fandom is about geeking out together with other fans. Role-playing games are just another way for friends to geek out together. A second answer to this would be some neighbors who have actually asked about RPGs. It would be nice to have some nearby players.

Day 2: What is a great introductory RPG?

I really think this would depend upon the interest of the players. If they were interested in fantasy I might use the game I cut my teeth on which is Basic Dungeons and Dragons. If it was a younger crowd I might use Tiny Dungeon: Second Edition. If the group was interested in the gangster genre, I might pull out Gangbusters B/X. Tall Tales B/X is probably what I’d use if they wanted to play a westerns campaign. Star Trek fans would like the Star Trek Adventures system, while the Whovians might like Doctor Who: The Roleplaying Game. If generic science fiction is wanted, I might use FrontierSpace. There are a bunch of other genres that I haven’t listed yet with plenty of games ready to cover them.

Day 3: When were you fist introduced to RPGs?

Many many moons ago I saw some friends playing Dungeons and Dragons in Elementary School. However the bulk of my early playing happened while I was in Junior High School. That is when I really got the dice rolling and my parents concerned. They must not have seen it as too bad because they didn’t try to stop me from actually playing. I’ve mentioned that they took my D&D books once because they thought I wasn’t paying enough attention in school, but returned them later when everything was better.

Day 4: Where would you host a first game?

If I was with a bunch of friends, I’d probably host at my home. I have more control over the area, the food is in my kitchen and I don’t have to go very far once the game is done. If I was going to be gaming with players that I had not played with before (or often) I might host the game at a local gaming store. But I don’t have as much control there when it comes to keeping distractions to a minimum.

Day 5: Why will they like this game?

I’m not certain what the organizers are asking here. If they are talking about the games I mentioned in Day 2, then the players might like it because it aligns with their interests. I also hope that as a gamemaster I’m providing an entertaining game that they players would enjoy in a safe environment. The primary reason we want to play role-playing games is to have fun and escape the troubles we are experiencing in our world now.

Day 6: How would you get more people playing RPGs?

Damn good question. There is no magic wand or trick that you could use to just get players to start. I think ease of access would help get more players. Don’t make the games overly expensive (at least for the basic game) or require special miniatures and dice. Don’t make the system overly complex. As I mentioned before, if you want me to try to convince my friends to play, make it easy for me to explain the system the game uses. And then there is always the dreaded, do the schedules work out. Sigh.


Yea I snuck in Day 6 on the 5th. I wanted to answer the question now while I had the blog open. I don’t know if I’ll be able to post next in a day or two or in a week. We will have to see how the schedule and leg lets me post. I do have to say I admire the RPG bloggers that can post on a daily basis. Hats off to you.
