Muppet Mondays! - A Great Muppet Caper

Here's a Muppet News Flash!

We go now to the Muppet Newsroom for a late breaking report.

"This just in from our New York City affiliate. Adam Dickstein will be running his homebrew Muppets Role Playing Game at NerdNYC's RECESS gaming event on June 18th, 2011. The theme for this RECESS is Video Games and although he has not said which video game character will guest star he did say he has a secret game guest ready for to appear in his Muppet Show episode. More details as they become available."

Yessiree ladies, gentlemen, frogs, dogs, pigs, penguins, aliens and vegetables, I will be running a session of 'The Muppet Show' using my very own Muppets RPG at the next RECESS event. If you're going to be in the New York City area on that day, I highly encourage you to attend. I had a blast at my last RECESS and the people who put this thing together are really great. For more information check out the nerdnyc website.

Some additional notes and thoughts on this Muppet Monday...

I really feel bad that the PDF isn't done. Real lifeTM and tough finances have required my attention and focus and so the project is not where I want it to be. What I mean by that is it's not in the state I want it to be in to put it in PDF format. Yet. It will be. I love this thing and I will finish it. Hopefully before RECESS so I can have a copy made into a book to bring to the event. Lulu? Can that be done that way? Probably right? Thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.

Some Muppet Mondays are going to be about whatever I have on my mind as relates to the subject but some will be very, very specific. Case in point, I want to address Locations as a game element next week. Similar to Sesame Street's Playgrounds, these are locales that will have some effects on or advantages for your character(s) and maybe hinder others. I have some interesting twists in mind to be sure.

Running an ongoing game of the Muppets seems unlikely at this juncture because, frankly, it isn't what either of my groups want as their mainstay and I can totally understand that. At the same time, I'd love to run it more than once every RECESS which happens maybe twice a year. Quite the quandry will an intriguing solution. Online? Over Skype so my Muppet impressions can be appreciated to the fullest extent? Not sure if I'm really considering this or simply daydreaming ideas. We'll see.

OK, that wraps it up for now, looking forward to fuller and more expansive Muppet Mondays as my schedules settles. Until then, we'll see you next time on the Muppet Show...

  1. Lulu's pretty easy to use and you can put up private content that only you can order. Just make sure to allow for 3-5 days manufacturing time on top of whatever shipping speed you select.

  2. Right! I forgot you can be a one off gift type thing. Thanks as always Doug. You the man!
