It’s official, me and 4 of my good friends are going to start our first Call of Cthulhu 1990s game next week. I picked people who I not only get along very well with, but these guys are also not as nerdy as one might think. Alright, we’re all a bunch of geeks, but they have about as much Pen and Paper RPG experience as I do. I’m gonna fulfill two roles during the campaign: that of the Keeper (COC’s equivalent to a DM) and the part of a nerdy and awkward, but witty and sarcastic journalist named Warren Lawrence. His name was taken from two of my favorite musicians, Warren Zevon and Steve Winwood (middle name “Lawrence”), and his physical appearance is based on those of Zevon himself and John Lennon, with none of the sex appeal. I though I might show you guys my character sheet.
Wish me and my players good luck. We’ll need it. Especially them.
I’m on vacation for a week! This means no comic update for that time, so I hope you can forgive me while I’m having fun away from the computer. The highlight of my trip will be tomorrow, when I’ll be at the Centre Bell in Montréal to see my all time favorite musician, Mr. Steve Winwood. His career spans over 4 decades and he never stopped evolving as an artist. He might be best known on the internet because Eric Prydz’s hit techno song,”Call on Me”, which sampled Winwood’s own “Valerie”. During the 80s and early 90s, he arguably wrote and performed the most mature in the pop genre, while he touched on about every musical style you can imagine during the other decades. From the Blues and RnB roots of the Spencer Davis Group to the psychedelic rock of Traffic and Blind Faith, he’s worth discovering not only to see if he’s your cup of tea, but to hear that he had the exact same black blues singer voice when he was a mere 16 years old.
