Hello, Everyone… if there is anyone out there. 🙂
I created this blog a while back to write about my life as it pertains to gaming. I quickly established my Set Pieces and planned a lot of other things that life got in the way of. You see I sort of started my blog prematurely. I bought a house in Late November so the last few months have been all about packing, moving and unpacking, all while going to work, raising a 5-year-old and trying my best to keep up with my wife’s honey-do list. Seriously I think I put together about dozen pieces of furniture. (6 shelves 4 curio cabinets, 2 storage units and a teepee… ok the last one was easy) We had Christmas, My Son’s Birthday, and we now have an exchange student from the Czech Republic.
It’s been a busy few months. I have also done a lot of gaming. It is interesting because a year ago I was running 2 games and playing in none. Now I am playing in 4 games and running none. Quite a change for me. (I’ll talk more about them in future posts)
So, I wanted to write this piece to talk about my plans for this blog. Set Pieces will still be a thing. Hopefully still on Weds and on a more regular basis. They are long pieces and take quite a bit of time so I might have to schedule them for every other week or so.
I still want to do adventure write-ups. We just had Session 4 of Gods of the Fall so I am a few sessions behind but plan on catching up. My Android Cypher game ran into a few problems that made it hard to write about. A player left the game and the plot got complicated. I misplaced my notes during the move so I couldn’t continue the write-ups for some time. After that, well, we found new players but have decided to change to a different game. So sadly, I’ll have no more write-ups from the world of Android.
I’ve been working on a couple ideas for making a Dark Souls-like Cypher game, that includes adapting some of the rules for a solo campaign (1 GM 1 PC). I haven’t started playtesting yet, but I might put some of that material on here.
I’ve also been experiencing quite a bit of gaming awesomeness. Whether it’s some cool Actual Play Podcast I’ve been listing to at work, or some fun Board games I’ve been playing at home, I plan on writing a bit more about things I find that I think are cool.
Another thing I want to start putting on here is some fiction. I had thought about doing NaNoWriMo and posting the stuff up here but I was in the middle of packing up and moving in Nov, so I didn’t have the time.
I don’t want to commit to a schedule for this blog because, A. I don’t want to disappoint people when I inevitably can’t stick to it, and B. adding a schedule makes it feel like an obligation to me so it ends up being less fun. But I will commit to having more post more often.
Thanks, everyone for bearing with me. I hope you enjoy what I will put out in the future
