Kinda more of the same…

So, last week was really a lot more of the same.

I’ve been slogging through Numenera. It’s been a slog mainly because I don’t have a way to read PDFs on the go, and the Numenera book is a beast at 400 pages. On the other hand, I spent last night combing through DeviantArt, which kinda sparked some ideas for armor and vehicles, so it wasn’t a total waste of time.

I’ve also started to become more frustrated with 4e as a DM. I’m feeling cranky about the tactical nature of the game, as a DM. I’m okay with it as a player, just not as a DM.

A couple of weeks ago, my Living Forgotten Realms character got killed, dead-dead, and then resurrected. I got inspired to build a new mini last week, and then got called into work. I got the mini built and primed by Friday afternoon. I was a little disappointed that our game was missing a couple of players, so we really didn’t get to explore how that impacted my character. I’ve decided he’s gotten a bit darker, and his powers have changed just a hair (his wizard multi-class powers have taken a turn towards the necrotic… 🙂 ). I’m going to start painting him tomorrow, provided I don’t get a surprise call into work again.

This weekend was my 50th birthday. Took a trip to San Francisco, and did nothing gaming related but managed to read a few pages of Numenera in the car on the Boy’s Kindle Fire. Man, I want an iPad. Hopefully, I’ll be able to start saving for that soon.

It’s also been two years since I started this blog. I’m short of one post a week by about 5 posts, and that’s been helped by NaBloPoMo last year. Of course, when I started, I only planned on posting bi-weekly, so I’m ahead of the game, technically. I will be trying to do NaBloPoMo again this year, but I have no idea how focused I’ll be…

All I have for this week. Later.
