The December issue was released on December 12th, 2010, and was the seventh issue of Volume One of Roll Call.
The Director did not submit a dialog for the month of December.
December is a busy month for many people. Holidays are happening, college semesters are ending, and many people are traveling. Needless to say, it's a pretty stressful time for a lot of folks. It's also a time that causes many a game night be canceled.
I believe that making sure to reserve a few hours out of the week to do some gaming is a great way to keep the stress from overwhelming you. I promise it won't kill you to relax for an evening and have some fun with your friends and/or family (assuming there's not been a zombie/robot apocalypse. in that case, you must stay on your toes at all times). If just a member or two of your regular group absolutely can't be there, consider playing a different game than usual. Perhaps a one-shot adventure, or just break out some board games.
In some cases, travel or some other situation will absolutely keep your group from playing, possibly for several weeks. If this scenario seems likely, don't let it creep up on you and your friends. Confer with the others and decide if your group will have to take a holiday break. In that situation, you should try to make your final game session of the year a memorable one with an ending that gives the game an easy point to jump back into after a few weeks of holiday madness. Be sure to take more notes than usual, so that the first session after the break can have a nice re-introduction to what was going on in-game.
Whatever your plans for the season are, I hope you all have an excellent December. Good luck, and good gaming.
Dir. of Comms. UpdateEdit
As our first full year as an official organization (as recognized by the US Government - and not just a few guys around gaming tables) comes to a close, its nice to look back at the progress we’ve made since January.
We’ve welcomed a few new chapters to our mists, including our first online as well as non-American chapter; we celebrated our first hosted event with the unique Camp Oggie; we received recognition from gaming companies both big and small; and we began to put the foundation in place for future years of advanced productivity and cohesion.
We’re looking to put the emphasis on chapter expansion for 2011. From the ground up, we want to get an Ogre in every city (Oggie likes to travel, after all) and develop a better and more used form of communication between chapters to help develop the bonds of brotherhood for us all. In order for this to work out, we’ll need help from members like you! Mention O.G.R.E.s at your local gaming store or any non-chapter gaming events you attend!
There was no Treasurer's report for December.
