I can’t talk to my Mom about my gaming angst

She wouldn’t get it.

Kind of glad I missed out on PAX. Kinda going through a bit of a mid-life / GMing crisis. ugh.

update

Haven’t really been keeping up with this as well as I’d like, but I guess most of my work is liable to happen on the weekends, anyway.

Orks are progressing, slowly. I’m taking Monday off, so I plan on completing major assembly then, including adding wires & gubbins and such. Will have to try and get them primered if it’s dry out.

I’ve been more or less corralled to run Dark Sun for the Saturday group. I guess I’m ok with that, just still a tad bit nervous. It occurs to me that “making things cool” is harder as a DM (than as an author, frex) simply because I don’t have as many tools. I’m mostly limited to showing the players what their characters see, which can make getting plots / NPCs “screen time” without just railroading and going off on monologues / rants pretty tricky. I’m pretty sure the game is going to be about “What happens to Tyr, now that it’s ‘free’?” and focus on the 2 to 3 years after the overthrow of Kalak. I may have some other craziness to throw in there, but I’m kind of leaning towards K.I.S.S…

I also need to email everyone and see what their ideas are…

(Almost) Ready to Begin

Acquired Dark Sun Campaign Guide and far more Ork bits than I will possibly need for this project. Need to read the book and lay out what bits I’m going to use for my Nobs mob. I figure I’ll start with 10 Nobs, I can always use some of them in my Boyz squads later. I have an additional 5 models, I think I want to try to make them into Meganobz, but that comes later.

I need to see if I can get my camera working. I really need a desk lamp, or better yet two.

New Hobby (not really)

I’m working on two projects right now:

1) Come up with an idea for a D&D campaign that I’d like to run. An actual campaign, not just the random stuff I’ve been doing. With an actual plot and stuff… Not actually inspired yet, but I’m working on it and determined not to just cave in and run just anything.

2) Orks. Just collecting / modeling / converting / painting right now. Specifically, I want to actually finish a unit (Nobs at the moment). Not going to go completely crazy and claim I’m not going to buy / fiddle with more random stuff in the meanwhile, but I actually want to get something accomplished.

So- that’s basically what this blog is going to be for (more or less): keeping track of progress / accomplishment in the area of my hobbies. I want to feel the same kind of satisfaction that I do getting through a day at work from participating in my leisure activities. That’s a goal.
