Run-around Friday

Work today has me running around to and fro but at least its a change of pace.

Reading: I’m finishing up Iron Council and then I’m off to Desolation Road about a small railway town on Mars. The first few pages grabbed me. Also…western on Mars. Done.

Planning: Lady-friend time this weekend.

Wearing: Jeans and my green button-down.

Writing: I didn’t do shit this week.

And you?

  5. Reading: Just finished Delia Sherman’s The Magical Mirror of the Mermaid Queen, the sequel to Changeling (Think Neverwhere if you didn’t bother with the normal world, it were NYC, and the protagonist were a young girl. Lots of fun.) Also started rpg Dark Aeons. Content is interesting thus far, and someone else has seconded my thought that the system could be used for a Dresden setting, but I want to shake whoever did this and say, “Get an editor!” This isn’t for the (extreme) purpleness of the prose, but for basic grammar and sentence structure.

    Planning: Meeting a friend coming into NYC. Job hunting. House cleaning.

    Wearing: Brown pants, Cthulhu fthagn t-shirt.

    Writing: Transcribing my notes from Origins and DexCon, working on notes for a game session based on one of the Kindaich manga. I’ve already figured out where the point of entry is (e.g., skip prologue, and change point of view to fit who the PCs actually are). Need to review default sequence of events, find potential break points, and figure out if I need to do anything about them, and, if so, what. Sometimes, “Okay, if the plot breaks here, cool.” is the correct answer. Sometimes, that answer means, “And then, you end the session after five minutes. Nope, try again.”

  13. Desolation road is one of my favourite books ever. You’re in for a good time and i envy you the experience.

    The not-really-sequel Ares Express I only found so-so though.
