ADMIN NOTE: This thread should have been in "Around the Campfire" long ago, as it is regarding stories of play and not actually discussion of other TSR games. My apologies that I took so long to move it to the right place.
I ran a game of Top Secret on Saturday. First time running a game in a long time. If you want to read the rpg journals, they can be found in my Facebook notes, MySpace Blog (5 entries), or at Pen & Paper Games Blog:
On March 8, 2008, I ran a game to memorialize Gary Gygax. We played Advanced Dungeons and Dragons; I ran the Keep on the Borderlands. A chair was set aside for Gary at the head of the table. We toasted him with scotch after that game. The man has touched so many lives. I've only now gotten around to fixing it so it can be online.
I finally ran the conclusion to the Aliens Adventure Game scenario Forced Entry (which I originally started in July 2010!). It can be found at Pen and Paper games (in two parts) and in my Facebook Notes (in one part). Here's the link to the former:
In Dark Sun, wizards draw their power from the life forces of the earth. There are two types of spell casters: preservers and defilers. Defilers kill, destroy, and draw the life from the environment around them to cast their powerful magics, while preservers temper their spell casting power in order to preserve the environmental life around them.

You are correct sir. Actually, in the revised and expanded edition of Dark Sun, defilers drew their power when they memorized their spells (which I thought was kind of lame - but I'm guessing they put it in so that players could more easily play defilers).

If anyone is interested, I also video recorded the game, though the sound did not come through very well as I think I have the wrong type of microphone. I'll get a new microphone before I video record again. Here's the link to the first one:

I ran a game of Tabloid! at CaesarCon in March. The title of the introductory adventure was Faux Pas and it had quite a lot: aliens, conspiracy, bigfoot - the works. The rpg journals can be found here:

I ran the Call of Cthulhu scenario Leaflet Mission at CaesarCon 2013 for four players on the Pretty Lady, a B-17 Bomber dropping leaflets on Germany during WWII. My players chose the co-pilot, flight engineer, ball turret gunner, and waist gunner. I also used a model of a B-17 Bomber as the centerpoint for the game. I plan to run another scenario involving the Big Money at CaesarCon 2014.
Role playing journals of the game can be found here:
