Today I’ve finished another bit of Deadzone, am playing Mars Attacks in a couple of hours (when I’ve finished the new scenario) and will be leading out the Orcs tonight for a God of Battles fight or two. Or maybe even three. I’m also composing some more bits for DreadBall and Eternal Battle in between those, which just leaves a few fleeting moments for me to be a little confused.
Flitting between systems without getting lost is a skill that I’ve learned slowly over the years, but which seems to be impossible to entirely master. It is, however, extraordinarily useful to be even half-competent at because I need to be able to do it all the time. Of course, I am trying to make things easier for myself by writing things like Eternal Battle, which will allow me to focus on a smaller number of options, but there will always be more than one.
In many ways I envy the folk who have such focus that they can concentrate on a single period and scale to game in. You come across them occasionally, usually toting beautiful armies and bags of bespoke scenery for their chosen passion. Professionally I cannot do that, not that I ever got anywhere close privately either. Still, I do sometimes gaze on in wonder.
How can they resist all the shiny baubles?
