Another crash of a hard

Another crash of a hard drive, and this time an outlay of money to do it “right” .
But I am back, and back for good.
Ambercon news…it seems unlikely that Arref is going to go. I shall miss him and Anne, to say nothing of EGB. Damn. Then again, buying a new house is definitely an order more important and complex than a gaming convention. I wonder, if in his absence now, I should try and start an Amber campaign at Ambercon…something sufficiently free form and loose so that players could swap in and out.
Something to think about, anyway. Also on that front, Felicia has reminded me that doing a sequel to last year’s Dreams Made Flesh might be fun and could definitely get the interest of the players involved. Cal Westray, among others, had a lot of fun with our game and wouldn’t mind returning to the setting. Of course…it would require a “plot”.
Just finished reading Michael Swanwick’s IRON DRAGON’S DAUGHTER. A very different take on faerie, I shall have to mention it to Arref. It’s not to his vision of “In the Shadow of Greatness” but its a unique vision that has pinged the “idea meter”. Industrial Faerie! Draconic aircraft! Rich, rich rich. Swanwick can infuriate, titillate, and amaze…his prose rarely bores you.
