Not exactly radio silence
Sorry for the quiet week, gang. There just hasn’t been much to write about.
…well, that’s not entirely accurate. There just hasn’t been much that I can write about, whether it’s due to an aversion to counting chickens before they’ve hatched (my favorite reason to keep quiet!) or simply not having enough information yet (still waiting for the answers for some questions before I do my Champions re-review, Cryptic!).
In addition to taking on the job of remote-personal-assistant for my very best friend (who just got AN INSANELY CUTE DOGGY OH MY GOD), I’ve actually not been doing a ton of gaming this last week. My mind needed a change of pace, apparently, and it’s gone after it in three ways: drawing, reading, and worldbuilding.
I spent all day yesterday bouncing around OCRemix (which you should really do yourselves — djpretzel and McVaffe in particular have some amazing tracks) and drawing dragons, because I could. There is no better or more valid reason to draw dragons than that. Dragons rule. Draw some.
The day before that, I spent reading Ender’s Game. Why the hell had I not read that before? Once I finish Howl’s Moving Castle, which I grabbed on the same trip to the bookstore, I’m going to read it again. That book deserves every heap of praise it’s ever gotten. Seriously.
Today has mostly been spent being excited about things that are mere possibilities, and months-to-a-year down the road, to boot. Fucking maddening, but better than having nothing at all to even possibly be excited about. While I’m doing that, I’ve also started GMing an Old Republic-era Star Wars RP for some friends, which I hope will be fun and drum up some interest in the inevitable TOR guild. I know we’ll have one because the website and forums are already up.
