Missing PentaCon

Well, PentaCon is over and for the first time in 20 years, we were not there.

I really miss the friends we have made over the years, many of whom are right there at PentaCon.

Believe me, I miss the people.

This has been the worst eight months of my life, and to have to miss seeing friends on top of it, well, it makes me just a little sad.

It is important to try to balance these trials with positive thoughts, and right now, I am hoping things improve enough for us to get back to PentaCon next year.

Late, but here it is.

I got the Universal Boon sheets done and posted today. I had a couple more things I wanted to do, but with only five hours left before I have to get up and work with Sue on her meds, well, just not going to happen.

I have two more sheets I need to get converted for Tim. Those I will get done with spot work during the day. Should have done them already. Oh well, do what you can.

Next up I want to go through the comments on the Universal Betas, divide them into "P" and temporary cards. Should be 2-4 sheets. I would like to get them up Sunday night.

With those in hand we can go over a number of sets for players races, shifters, special abilities and professions and make them work with, enhance and expand the Universal cards.

I also want to get back to some GM cards. The last I checked almost every DS game has a GM. They appear to be very important, as any player without a game to play will tell you. I guess that is why, as players, we treat the GM's with respect and chocolate. (How do you give your Skype GM chocolate? I need to check into our selling Gift Certificates..)

Just a little DS Work

I am working on two sets of Universal Boon type cards for 2.0. Three of the eighteen did not pass early muster and others need a little tweaking.

A few of these are too complex for the standard card. I am going to lay them out as full text cards.

I managed to get a couple of hours in today, so I am through the first nine. I only have six right now for the second sheet, I thonk I will take a look through the Universal "P" type cards and see what fits in. I have an Herbalism card I like, but that would mean working on the herbs next, and I am not sure if Herb would like that.

I am really going to miss going to PentaCon, sigh.

Working out the weeks schedule

Need to work with Sue to on getting her something to do. Not as easy to do as you would think. She has the vision problems plus she has spikes of mental difficulties that distract her. Frequently it is a choice of working with her or doing my own work.

Got cards done over the weekend for the orders. Need to pack them and get them to the post office.

Have doctors appointments Monday and Thursday to work around.

Prioritize partially finished projects.
GM Primer book, got some good chapter headings, now I need words.
Talking Elethay for the new Talismans and Gift Ceremony. Using info in Kanchaka and Continent books as foundation.
Talking Armor. New shield system is good, it is going to open up the making of magic shields, but takes some explanation to help people know what we mean.
Review and correlate comments on the new Stealth set. Maybe it is good so few people want to speak up.
One more revision of Awareness Betas with Sue, then onward.
Want to update Griffon Betas, because I am using them.
Continue going through Universal sets to get Sue big cards.
Have several requests for beta updates, nightwitches, fire mages, prismatic wizards most frequent requests.
Work on site revisions to drop web sites, cost considerations. Get comics into Sue's site, Guild into DS. Pretty much have the Betas moved, at least the pieces people use.
Revise podcast outlets. Have 35,000+ downloads, but need cheaper server. Also need to get back to them. They are fun to do.
Zazzle needs more images, seeing some responses, and slight income.

Ok, looks like I have a month of tasks here, not a week.

Anyone have suggestions?

Well, maybe it never ends

I have just had three teeth pulled. Such fun. Now I think I will ignore the world for a couple of days.

Good Valentines Morning!

Valentines Day. One of the Hallmark holidays. However, in this case, I think I like it.

It is a wonderful excuse to show someone that you love them, and I have someone I Love. (Hi Sue!)

As my protest against the commercial holidays, no card, but we can share a steak!
