I am sure you thought I was gone for good or even dead. Sorry, I am still here.
It is hard for me to write these posts. It is not that I cannot find anything to write about or that I cannot find the time. Writing prose is just hard for me. I don't think I am very good, either.
I am pretty sure that no one reads this blog. I don't blame them but it would be nice to get some feedback.
My fantasy role-playing group is on hiatus right now. Life happens. It is hard to get six middle-aged guys together on a regular basis. I have been running a campaign for about two years that is about to wrap up. I look forward to being a player again. Being the game master feels like I am performing for two or three hours when we play. I am exhausted afterward. The group seems to like their characters and enjoy the dungeon crawl that this set of published modules gives.
I am trying to get the group together, minus a few guys, to do something, even it is not my campaign. It has been a month and no luck, yet. I will keep trying.
In the mean time, I have been working on the final detail of the big battle with the Boss. The player know it is a red dragon but that is about all they know. It should be a lot of fun. I am going to try to make it a memorable session. The mood will be important as I want they characters and players to be afraid. It is entirely possible that one or more of the characters will die. If there is not the chance or fear that a character will die then it won't be enjoyable and may be too easy. I don't think I am a "good" game master but we shall see.
