Despite my quietness here, stuff still happens. Like a phoenix from its ashes, my real-world gaming group has been resurrected. It was small before (3 guys) and losing one seemed fatal, but we have added three new fellas and look to be getting back on track. We're playing through what I guess you might call an "adventure path" for Labyrinth Lord in a setting heavily-influenced by Vance's Lyonesse books. We're reaching the end of that now and might be playing DC Adventures next. While I can't claim to be thrilled with that choice, I feel it's fair enough to let somebody else choose the game and give it try.
I've also been running another Dying Sun play-test and again finding out that there are a bunch of stupid things still in the there. For instance, my missile weapon ranges are buggered to hell and back. More importantly, I'm finding that my rules for Large weapons may not work as well as I wanted. Which means - that's right - expect more posts about Combat Mechanics in the near-future.
Finally, there is a potentially very exciting thing (well, exciting to me) going on that I can't talk about. So why bring it up? Because it's eating up a lot of my mental resources right now. I should be ignoring it and getting back to work on UtDS, but I keep thinking of stuff for this other thing that I can't talk about. Ah well.
