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.
