It has been a while since I have been around. It feels like I betrayed family or something. There are a lot of new faces and plenty of old ones so I am looking forward to settling in again and meeting some new folks to chat with.

I have been pretty busy with the real world stuff it appears there is some light at the end of the tunnel finally. Here is what has been going on for the most part.

The bad stuff that has happened:
- Folks around me losing their job, and trying to do what I can to help them out.

-My house is falling a part a huge limb went through the roof, I have it rigged but I am going to have to wait until spring to do it right.

-Garage door broke which results in me having to park in the yard because of the slant of the driveway. It isn't much of a yard now though it is more of a mud bog.

- I had a ton of stuff in the garage and I can't readily get to my terrain supplies, and I can't bring them in because we have a new puppy in the house.. not really a lot of room to store stuff and the puppy will chew anything left out.

- It has been cold as crap outside and I have been hibernating inside. Good for spending time with the kids.. bad for body.

Good Things that have been going on:

- I have gotten pretty darn good at Rockband 2 on all three instruments. I also discovered a very fun game called Little Big Planet where you get to make your own characters and levels and play other folks... very very fun.

-I have been able to get some of the behind the scenes thing done on roguescape.com to make it a little better. It is still in the test phases but it should turn out to be a little more user friendly and fun once it is done.

- I have got some sketches done up of some more terrain I would like to do some tutorials on this year for the website as well.

- I have been bonding like mad with my kids since we have been cooped up in the house for the most part. We have all had some really good times.

Anyway, I just wanted to post a bit to let folks know I am still alive and I look forward to talking scape with ya all again.

Welcome back BC...I missed you...and am glad you are OK...well as OK as you can be with everything going on.


What's good about family is that they are always there waiting for you to come back home for a visit. :-)

Good to hear.
Can't wait to see what you have planned for terrain.

I've been watching a particular particular tree (50ft pine) in my yard that died over the winter after half of it fell last summer (away from the house). The rest of the tree is angled towards my family room, and I'm just waiting to hear the 'crack' and 'boom.' Maybe this is a sign I need a preemptive strike.

Looking forward to more roguescape.
