Hello dear reader… Fret not about the title, I’m not quitting this blog (even if by my infrequent posting some of you suspected I already did), Michael is not getting rid of me that easy!

However, and despite all RL complications and responsibilities, I’m part of a new project I want to share with all of you. Desde la Fosa a vlog about RPG games in Spanish! It translates as From the Pit, and let me give you some background on it.

Video Game Recommendation: Torment–Tides Of Numenera

Yesterday InXile Entertainment released Torment: Tides of Numenera, the long-awaited computer role-playing game set into Monte Cook’s Ninth World. In a way it’s also a spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment, which was based on another of Monte Cook’s work. Usually we don’t talk about computer and video games on this blog, but today I want to make an exception.

Torment: Tides of Numenera doesn’t have the best graphics and if you were hoping for full voice-acting I have to disappoint you. It’s first and foremost a game for people who don’t mind reading a lot of text. But in my opinion this combination of simple graphics and text make it much easier to immerse deeply into the game. You have to fill in the blanks with your mind, which should come easy to most roleplayers.

This past Sunday, Puerto Rico Role Players held its 20th Geeknic. The name of this latest edition was: Make Geeknics Great Again! (No relation to a certain political campaign, just a joke while trying to be topical!)

We’ve been doing these picnics for geeks for some time now, and I’ve written about them before on a few occasions. We went back to the Guavate Recreational Area in Cayey. Located at the end of the porcine delicacies road (click on the previous link to learn more) in the Carite Forest; we’ve held previous geeknics there, and while the location is sadly unkempt, the lush forest and the breeze just invite you to game in one of the many large gazebos.
