My wife and I have decided that there is no way that we are going to get our house on the market by the holiday season. That takes the pressure off us a bit and will (I hope) free up some time to start blogging again. Unfortunately, adjustments made to my routine to accommodate the house push have effectively eliminated my quality blogging time. I'm still struggling to work it back into my daily schedule.
Posting by email might help so here is my second attempt. I wasn’t happy with how things were formatted last time and I need to work out the kinks before I can consider it to be a viable option. Now, anybody know how to work images into an email post? (I’ve included one as an attachment here)
Now, just because blogging has been light doesn’t mean that I haven’t been thinking about gaming. It’s October and I’m starting to really feel the need to do some spooky gaming. I also tried out some new iPad software for game prep called Index Card and I’m really loving it. I sketched out my Moon Soldiers Must Die! Game as a collection of possible scenes and it was all the notes that I needed at the table. Yeah, I could have used paper (or real index card)s but for some reason I found this to be more fun and easier to manage.
In other news, I’m getting close to nailing down a list of Space Words for my next inspirational PocketMod. Anybody have ideas for evocative words that could appear on a system or sector level space map? I’ve got 240 words but I’m definitely going to need help if I want to pad things out to the 360 required for a d30 version.
In other other news, Robin Laws’ Hamlet’s Hit Points is on my mind again. I’m currently working through some ideas for turning it into some kind of game engine. I hope I’ll have more to say on that later.
