I don’t know about you, but this has been one long week.
I wrote this really cool and interesting diatribe about communication and its challenges.
Then I reread it and realized it kind of sucked. You’re not getting that (You’re welcome!).
Instead, let’s talk about the work ahead.
Starting a New TTRPG Game
I started work on a Monster of the Week game
with my core set of players. I needed a more episodic-style game to manage when players in our
long-term 5th Edition game can’t show up. Monster of the Week is really well geared for this sort of
in-and-out play. That means we can regularly game even when some players aren’t around.
This will be key for maintaining any sort of gaming schedule over the holidays.
I have spent much of Nanowrimo focusing on writing game world content. Ryn continues to evolve,
but I am rapidly hitting the wall with 5th ed. It doesn’t help that I have been looking at
systems that would be a ton of fun to play in. I am hoping MotW scratches that itch. I have no idea
who reads this (if anyone), and I tend to think I am shouting into the void, but feel free to reach
out if you are interested in joining that game. Unlike Ryn, an episodic-style game is a really nice
way to test out a system and a group to see if you are a good fit.
After doing nothing for a long time, I am picking up my camera and getting back out there. I’m also
moving to Flickr (for albums) and (eventually) PixelFed for random image posting. I am moving my content
off of my Exposure-backed site and should be up on Flickr by the end of the month. I want to reiterate
that there is nothing wrong with Exposure. They have been awesome (even more awesome -> they kept my
legacy price, throughout.), but I am not using the site enough, and my use-case and needs are shifting.
I think Flickr is the better option for now, and we will see what comes up as time goes on.
I miss photography. I don’t think I was some wonder, but I enjoyed the work of getting out there and
taking the image. It also was a key part of my health and fitness journey. If I am being honest,
that could use some work, too!
Expect to see new links to the Flickr and PixelFed, soon. We’ll see what comes after that!
