Ran a goddamn amazing session of Monsterhearts 2 on Saturday.
I think our group has finally figured out how to do this game.
I went into this with zero prep. I mean, I had established NPCs and things that were going on, but I didn't have to lift a finger- the players drove the entire session. It came together incredibly well.
With things neatly tied up, we're switching back to Monster of the Week now. We'll play out another season (which seems to mean 5-6 sessions for this particular group) before switching back to Monsterhearts 2, probably right around the new year.
While I'd still like to have some B/X in my life, my time is pretty limited during November-December from my activity coaching. Perhaps I can make it a goal for 2019.
