Friday Waiting

Reading: When Peoples of Middle-earth came in the mail I had to pick it up and read through The New Shadow.  I will post about that in its own post, once I have digested it a bit.  Before They are Hanged is still in my bag but I haven’t been reading these past few days.

Planning: Seeing my ladyfriend this weekend, gaming tonight and later this afternoon, a visit to the ole knee doctor to see what the MRI could see.

Wearing: Thermal underwear is a must today, some jeans and a long sleeved shirt.

Writing: A critique of a friend’s chapter and a chapter of my own for next week.

And you?

    Planning: On playing in my eldest son’s Eberron game tonight (have to finish creating my homonculus). Going to see my youngest play basketball, The Lightning Thief and hopping to get my Back to Basics D&D campaign going again this weekend.

    Wearing: Jeans and long sleeve crew. First day without my snow shoes (dress down at work).

    Writing: Lots of blog comments here and elsewhere, toying with my Lightning Thief hack of Ghost\Echo, and trying to give structure to my new old school sandbox setting Icosa.

  2. Reading: Marcuse’s “One Dimensional Man” and almost done the comic series, “100 Bullets”. Cicero is on hold.

    Planning: Get the new game (“Fast and Dangerous”?) out of the skunkworks and into a real text, then think about making it a product. Oh crap, I still have six pages of errata to put into “Diaspora”. Okay, first we get that out the door.

    Wearing: Daytons, black jeans, khaki t-shirt, black leather hat.

    Creating: Rolling around ideas for hacking In A Wicked Age to require the production of artifacts that allow people to join ongoing multi-session games and be able to understand the aesthetic the existing players have established. (VERY HARD).
