wednesday night gaming -7TV ghost busters.

Had afantastic game of 7tv last night using the paranormal investigators supplement ,I did mean to do a full report with loads of pictures but got that wrapped up in the game I forgot ?. Johnplayed the ghostbusters with aman in black and 3 bystanders in support ,I played the spooky side with a fine array of things that went bump in the night . After taking a mighty beating and losing almost half of my cast I managed victory by retaining the Babalonion chest containing the ancient scrolls also known as a Maguffin ,great fun with lots of tension .The game recived lots of interest and nice comments as well .Rules and most of figures by crooked dice ,buildings mainly TT combat and mat by Urbanmatz.

Naseby

Visited the Battlefield at Naseby this weekend and it was very worthwhile ,recently added viewing platforms and information points made it most enjoyable and informative .We started at Fairfaxs viewpoint then called in at the obelisk the original monument to the battle.then through Naseby to the Cromwell Monument then onto Sulby Hedge and the possible KIngs Oak location ,this was a good walk from the road across farm fields but the farmer was very nice and pointed us in the quickest direction .Then we managed to get lost on our way to retreat viewpoint ,then we missed the ROC viewpoint and went straight to Prince Ruperts view .We doubled back to the ROC viewpoint before heading into Market Harborough to see Bloodymans ford .
