Another busy week not posting here ;P
Getting on with the DZ stuff, testing out ways of streamlining and clarifying the rules so that the learning curve shallows out without losing the interesting bits. I don’t normally get a chance to go back to designs, so this is an interesting change of pace for me.
I’ve also been doing some research into the 2nd Punic War, and that’s done the usual job of Ancient warfare topics: “facts” disappearing like morning mist in the hot sun as soon as you look closely. I knew it would happen of course. It always does. Still a little perturbing though. That’s evolving into more projects than I’d planned. Can’t fit everything I want to do with it in just the original one.
And then this weekend sees another Mantic Day on Saturday, down at their HQ in Bulwell, Nottingham. And, if I’m lucky, I might make it up to the Triples show in Sheffield on Sunday too. So a busy weekend in store. I should probably re-read some of the rules I’ve been working on over the last couple of years as I’ve got a seminar tomorrow morning as part of the day. The lag between me writing the stuff and it being released is quite long (often over a year), and it’s hard to remember the details people quite rightly want to know about. And it’s not just the time; it’s also the fact that I’ve worked on half a dozen other games since…
So that’s my homework for today, when I’ve finished my other work 🙂
