Enthusiam Only Goes So Far...
A little over a month ago, I was exhausted but still somehow buzzed from all the excitement that was Montreal Comic Con. I didn't realize how tired I actually was though! So, I took a bit of time for myself and did just a bit of work on various Arcana Creations related projects. Then GenCon came around. I didn't go to GenCon this year and the last time I went was three years ago. Even if I didn't go to GenCon, thanks to social media, I was able to experience a some of the excitement through others that manage to go.
Sadly, there was some ugliness that happened there and a bunch of my respective feeds got cluttered with this crap. I remember a time not so long ago where the biggest divide were regarding which editions of D&D you prefered and played. Things have gotten a lot darker politically speaking.
It wasn't all doom and gloom but I 'switched off' for about a month and took it easy... at least as much as working a hectic 9-5 job can permit anyway. I started assembling and painting a Kill Team for one of Games Workshop latest offerings as well as 3D printing some terrain for it. Got around to playing a couple of games like The Island of Eldorado which ended up being a lot of fun. Also finally got around to seeing a couple of movies like Antman and the Wasp which was a lot of fun!
The time for 'play' is winding down and I really have to start thinking about our next show in about 8 weeks. Some things have to be re-stocked and a bit of prep needs to be done. I also need to see about running a game or two at the event (time permitting). Should be good and I'm looking forward to it!
More importantly, it's also time to start writing about the new Ballista line this week as I intend to launch the Kickstarter campaign for the line in less than a couple of weeks!
