Games, the Obsession of my
I am one of the few and the
proud.... The female gamers.
I will play just about anything.
here are a few of my favorites.
Th e Classics,
and variations thereon:
- Chess: the
one true game. I wish I were a better player. Or that there were some more
opponents around here.
- Go: I am truly horrible but I still enjoy
- Mah Jongg: Fascinating, but I think I prefer using the tiles
- Othello: Much fun. I enjoy. Here I wish my computter
were a smarter opponent.
- Pente: Connect four-plus-one, with a
twist or two. My playing's gone down since I took all the stones to use as
counters for other games, though.
- Cathedral: A variation on Go I'm
actually good at.
- Mao: The king of Card Games, aka
Uno on acid. I'd tell you the rules only it's against the
- Gin: And gin rummy and all like that there. Taught me by my
grandmother, and something of an in-joke.
- Solitaire: I know more
versions of this than.... I dunno. I may put rules up on this page
eventually, in case anyone cares....
Weird games with cards:
- Magic: The original
collectible card game/obsession. Magic magic plaaaaaay Magic!
- Jyhad: (Now called
"Vampire: the Eternal Struggle." S illy WotC.) Vampire. From the makers
of the Magic.... I long for other players on campus....
- Illuminati: New World Order
(INWO): Weirdness incarnate. The trilogy was better.
- And I
have even st ooped to play Spellfire.
are my passion. The
concept of getting into someone else's mind and being that person
fascinates me as a writer.
- Shadowrun is my favorite genre
at the moment. It si cyberpunk with magic, and just plain nifty.
Shadowland is a Web site devoted to
this game which I waste entirely too much of my life on.
actually play are:
is a game set in the same universe as that of Shadowrun - but something
like 10,000 years earlier. My character is the T'skrang Archer K'harra Shustal, also known as Heartsong
Soulspeace. Earthdawn is a lot of fun, but I'm not up to describing it at
the moment. On K'harra's subpage, there is a link to Kevin's Earthdawn
which I will also put here for cleverness' sake.
- Chaos is an as-yet
unpublished gaming system, created by my beloved roommate's beloved, Eric
Reuss. It is INCREDIBLE amounts of fun, just by its purely random nature.
My character there is named Wonder, and she also will be acquiring a page
sooner or later.
The Masquerade oughta be nifty if Bigsis
ever gets around to running it. My character, Gabrielle, is a Gangrel.
- WACKO: (red-branch.mit.edu
This is an exercise in weirdness. Bug me there as Rastaban, the
psychedelic blue dragon. Also keep an eye out for Arcadia, my IC
(in-character) daughter, and Auradon, an other incarnation of Kevin....
We're all friendly people, if often bewildered.

There I am Ellia of Harper
Hall, Ch'ran of Fort Weyr, Kirnin, of the
Western Train of Traders, and Ryai, a rather imposing sort of cotholder.
I have recently added a little chart of my family there, for my own
personal amusement, and also to prove that I can do html tables to the
universe. Therefore, here is the family
- New England: the
Reckoning: (haven.idyllmtn.com 6969) A MUSH based on the White Wolf
Vampire/Werewolf RPGs. It is set in 1730's Boston, and is rather a lot of
fun. I'm the web page admin, but please don't bug me about the fact that
the page isn't finished yet. I've been busy. There, I am most frequently
known as Gabrielle.
A very tiny Pern-based MUSH.
There I am
known as Rhaeda.

MUSHes. I'm Jorinne, weyrbrat extraordinare, and J'rily's daughter.

from the head wizards' minds, but it is really really nice.

Silver this time. The theme is based off Katherine Kurtz's Deryni

I am code wizard (pity me please). My character there is Alyssa.
- Necropolis: (telmaron.com 4250) A fascinatingly dark world, home to
demons, vampires, were-creatures, fae, mutants, and ordinary humanity....

- Fionn Fionnbharr, a Pooka Fae (Fi)
- Irene Maria de los Fuegos, a Demon Half-Breed (Ira)
- Spock: (fledge.watson.org

There, kill things with great vigor and excitement- but don't get It, or
if you do, TAG SOMEONE!
There, I am the Minotaur Mage
- Ancient Anguish is another
MUD, and this one is a bit more traditional.
- Asich is a Ranger of the House of Midiar
- Nightpaw is a Fighter of the House of Amros
that's a largish list.
From here you could go back to the havens or start over. Or there's the things to chew on.
