Got a bit of the burnout

Just looking back on the year of gaming. Honestly I managed to play a lot! Which is always good. I'm also looking forward to the new year and more gaming. I have a few ideas for the upcoming year. They do however involve less writing and drawing of maps. I've come to the conclusion that I really enjoy running games and playing in them. Creating has become a lot more difficult this last year. Partially because of the changes in my life. As most of us "creators" can attest, I've got a google drive filled with half baked ideas. I'm intending on downloading all of it and cleaning up my drive.  Hobby wise I think I'm going to find something to do with my hands, possibly build guitar pedals. I'd like to have something a complete that I can hold. If that makes any sense.

I'm obviously going to continue to blog, it may however be more play reports, random tables. Less reviews. It seems that I've become a bit less frequent than I used to be. I guess my focus has changed a bit in the last few months. (new job and responsibilities).

Gaming wise, I'm taking a holiday break and then I'm getting going in January with my Wednesday afternoon bx on roll20.  Eventually I'd like to run 2e in greyhawk on roll20.

The Monday night miserable bastards game is every Monday, and I play skord the spear. A fighter who likes to solve problems with a war hammer. This game is so much fun. Our gm is mr. Tim Shorts (who just restarted his old blog, check it out).

I'm considering ditching my isle of dread game and moving to a 5e game at home. My two players are into crunchy, and levelling up frequently.  I haven't decided if I'll run the starter set, a homebrew game or maybe saltmarsh or princes. Kinda leaning towards a home brew game.

I'm looking forward to a bit of a break and then I'll get back at it!


  1. This is a wonderful recap of a great year in gaming and in personal growth. I’m so happy for you!

    Good luck with your Wednesday game. Can’t wait to hear some real play recaps
