First Friday Back in the Cold

Reading: Wendy and Peter in order to get some background for some Peter Pannish fiction I wrote a few weeks ago. Tinkerbell is a jealous psychopath.

I finished The Alchemy of Stone and The Etched City while on vacation and will have to write short mini-reviews of them soon.

Planning: Burning Wheel tonight, D&D on Saturday, prep for classes on Sunday and classes on Monday.

Wearing: Jeans, John’s Go Play NW t-shirt and a brown hoodie.

Writing: Magic rules for Warlock Corner, a 1st Quest setting.

  1. Reading: Gave up on Monchinski’s Eden (for being to cliche and boring) last night and have moved on to Mean Streets.

    Planning: A one-shot Obsidian LARP and looking at our convention schedule for the year.

    Wearing: Jeans and a comfy sweatshirt

    Writing: Mostly editing currently, but after this anthology wraps up I’ll be back to writing my novel.

  5. Reading: “The Revelation” by Bentley Little. Haven’t gotten very far yet though.

    Planning: A fun art studio day with friends tomorrow. And going to see Russell perform a solo in a Mozart Requiem performance on Sunday.

    Wearing: Pinstripey pants, a brown skull shirt from Target, a black sweater and striped arm warmers. Oh! And socks with foot bones printed on top that give me skele-feet.

    Arting: The few Dresden Files pieces that are left and a character design I’m doing for someone.

  9. Reading: “The Escapement” by KJ Parker (volume 3 of the Engineer trilogy) and “The Fall of Constantinople: 1453” by Steven Runciman

    Planning: A Star Wars Saga edition short-run game and a Mouse Guard one-shot

    Wearing: green denim shirt and khakis

    Writing: Not much. I need to work up some feedback/notes on a game a friend is working on and at some point or other write a section about teen psychosocial development for another game, but this isn’t the weekend for it.

  13. Reading: Fellowship of the Ring. Did you know Tolkien is so much more enjoyable when you skip around rather than read straight through?

    Also- after having read Moldvay D&D a few weeks back, I’m thinking of digging through Rolemaster as a compare and contrast of old school gaming.

    Planning: An actual weekend. Where I’m not doing everything and a half, and I can just chill.

    Wearing: Sweats and hoodie.

    Writing: Magic Sword, my retro D&D rules based on a mix of Moldvay, Dragon Warriors and Last Remnant.

  17. Good to hear you’re still doing 1st Quest stuff! I’m also looking forward to those mini-reviews. I need some more books to read. I would have bought the first of the Glenn Cook Black Company stuff, but it wasn’t at the bookstore last time I was there.

    R: Just finished Chaosium’s Innsmouth Cycle collection. Started up on The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard. I also just finished listening to a great podcast, The Roman Empire by Isabelle Pafford. Now I’m listening to European Civilization from the Renaissance to the Present which is already fascinating during the very first lecture.

    P: Consulting on a cool D&D project for a buddy.

    W: Weirdly, a t-shirt that once belonged to my mother-in-law.

    W: Nothing. D’oh!

  21. I didn’t care for The Etched City.

    Reading: Just finished Patricia McKillip’s latest, The Bell at Sealey Head, which was lovely. Fantasy, Austenesque in some ways, I think deliberately so. And very much a writer’s book, with her writer character constantly working on a story, and the young innkeeper (named Judd) reflecting on the oddity that all voracious readers, including himself, always want more books.

    Planning: Singing at GAFilk. Just heard the Suttons singing the “I Am Not a Pagan Polka”, and when they got to the line “Why aren’t you singing?”, they directed the line to , who said, perfectly reasonably, “Because I’m Jewish.” We’ve just recovered from all falling over laughing, and now Crystal’s singing “Ronald Reagan Carl Sagan San Diegan Pagan”.

    Wearing: Sneakers, black jeans, Flash Girls t-shirt. is wearing an Eddie and the Fay t-shirt. We are doing this deliberately, as the Secret Guest of GAFilk is Emma Bull.

    Writing: My comments on Alarums and Excursions #400 for my zine for the 401st issue.

  25. Watching: you, Jeff and Storn’s first videocast. Highly entertaing.

    Reading: re-reading Silence makes me a victim and trying to put an email of thoughts about it together for Clyde.

    Planning: Games for Conquest NW this weekend.

    Wearing: Jeans and my work boots, t-shirt abandoned due to messy pork roast dinner, or perhaps my enthusiasm for my own cooking is my undoing.

    Arguing with myself about: whether i should go have another cigarette before bed. it’s cold out there.
