Life, the Universe and Everything - January
January is the busiest time of year for me at work, which has left me with little time to properly concentrate on role-playing, despite my recent postings, as most of which have been 'on hold'.
This means that Febraury may be incredibly quiet while I catch up and try to get time to play, this hasn't been helped by a virus, hence the latest of this post.
On a plus side I've agreed with my partner that I get a monthly 'Geek fund'. In the past it's been a case by case basis and it's pretty hard to justify a lot of my expenditure, now it's possibly a little less, but I have free reign and a new streamlined purpose.
I've also managed to enthuse my kids, and I am waiting for the time when we are all free to test out my DP hack (very imminent!).
On the additional plans front I am looking for pirate ship deckplans as the girls have both chosen pirate-y girls and love Pirates of the Caribbean, the trouble is there are so many!
I am currently looking at 0 hrs Ships, Lord Zsezes Pirate/Ghost ship, and GameScapes Pirate Islands. I have of course the Ron Shirtz tiles free from Ye Olde Inn, THE best resource for the Milton Bradley boardgame Heroquest, but I need ships large and small to attack and defend, so if I've missed something terrific let me know.
I am also going to try and find time to try out my solo dungeon delving/minis rules. Really it should be a case of bringing everything together, and as I do so I'll try and release documents to support the whole lot. Not sure where to host them, or where to get the time to bring them together, but I really hope to.
The biggest problem I currently face with them is activation rolls. I don't know if they will add or subtract from the game, I'd like variable initiative but wholesale freezes I'm not sure about, something to ponder on and try out.
As always I have things in the pipeline that I hope to reveal this month, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Until next time Steve
