I got a little busy.
WednesdayWalk: down by the river
As requested by @dreemit who assures me that WednesdayWalk just has to be posted on Wednesday and doesn't necessarily have to occur on Wednesday. As luck would have it, we actually went on a nice walkies on the correct day.
And I'm a day late for me because shenanigans happened but I have the advantage of being on the side of the world where a day late makes it on time for the other side of the world? Aargh shenanigans.
March ProgBlog #2 - eternal tooling
I had a cascade of stuff happen over the last two weeks.
Just stuff, nothing really major or bad but enough of that and not enough sleep that I can't remember what most of it was.
Also enough that when I was supposed to progblog last week I looked at how much progress I'd made from last week (virtually none) and went nup and bailed.
First, let's cover some prog (seeing as that's the original purpose of these and probably what most people are interested in).
I have two more toes to go on Gundry.
TTRPG writeups: Madcap Redcap Recap #1
TTRPG writeups: WoD Modern 2 - Vampires #1
When the kids expressed interest in playing Vampire, I told them that I hated the subsystem. Mechanically it's not any different from Changeling, it's the lore that I don't like (there's nothing wrong with it per se, just not my style), and while you can be combat heavy with it (which given the insane strength and speed vampires have can be quite entertaining and occasionally interesting to manage), it's generally geared towards more political intrigue which I am absolutely terrible at because I'm lucky if I have Wits 1.
December ProgBlog #1: ramp
Stuff is ramping up.
I've been mostly working on photobooks trying to get them done in time for printing and shipping back to the island in the vain hopes it might not get there too late. I've also been working on my dice system (it has undergone two major overhauls in about as many days) and roleplaying notes (gained a bit of extra time as the kids didn't feel like playing the weekend just gone, I brought the stuff over anyway just in case I actually needed it but got to just hang with my friend the entire time).
And I need to try harder to catch up with the homeschool miscellanies and ttrpg writeups. I don't seem to have taken any photos at all in October (not even normal ones) so there's just November and December to do. And I'm apparently getting a new moderator next year and am probably going to make a great first impression with the nonsense this year has been.
November ProgBlog #4: railroading
I'm apparently that good at not being too obvious about railroading (unless I make it obvious like when I want to end a session, like I did on the weekend and had my players playfully accusing me of railroading when after a while I was like "YOU'RE GOING BACK TO THE FREEHOLD.") that I can't even railroad myself when I need to.
Weekend was busy again with gym events so once more not a lot got done. I worked a bit more on the dice system, and some notes, yesterday I got started on Gundry.
TTRPG writeups: WoD Modern 2 - Mercenaries #1
Mild content warning: occasional swearing and mild adult themes
We had a slight derailment right at the outset as S was unable to make the session. I only do character driven stories so players not being able to make sessions can make things fall apart, so normally we would just skip (I had previously tried to encourage the kids to make Redcaps that we could use in a casual drop-in/out filler game as a Redcap gang lends itself well to that, plus they could get any murderhobo/random dickishness/silly out, but the older boys had decided "Changeling is cringe"). However in this case seeing as it was early on, I managed to restructure stuff in my head (and later on in my notes) enough to postpone S to the next session.
TTRPG writeups: WoD Modern 2 - Mercenaries #0
System: World of Darkness (edition uncertain as the sourcebooks are all over the joint and also I fudge and homebrew a lot)
August ProgBlog #1: branching out
The scales are still going. The only thing that's changed is that I'm now in the
yellow PURPLE section! XD
