Rusting Sword

It is not the oldest castle. There was one on this spot before this one, and I think one before that.

But to me it is the greatest castle, for I was wandering when I sited it, and arriving was like coming home.

Many were the warriors who once strode the castle halls- some orcs, some elves and many strange others, some traders and some of growing ill repute. Many feasts were held, much jesting, great exchanges of ideas, trades good and bad, and of course tales told of battles lost and won. Great tapestries and paintings were displayed proudly for all to see. It seemed it would last forever- and I know it sounds meaningless now, but in the moment I believed it true.

But how could that be? All things are transitory- I say so endlessly, it seems. But itís easy to forget. We are creatures of the present, living moment to moment- wise if we are even three moves ahead.

And so when the road was moved, when the woods...

Well met!

chas has expanded on Scaperdad's Custom Generals for a scenario, Generalscape, that the Gang of Six (the original Four plus Mikeyblaze and Pauliesmiley) will be playing on Friday, 5/25.

chas says:

I'm happy to say that Generalscape will finally happen after all these years, on Friday May 25. Generals were chosen as follows so far in the following order; we're still open for a seventh player with Valkrill. Note that I had players alternate alliance picking so we'd have a balanced game with whatever number we ended up having as players. If someone can't come and we have an odd number of players, than a) the last player choosing will default to Valkrill instead, or b) if we have a Valkryill by then, he's default to replacing the missing person. Ah, the permutations of running a larger Scape group; a 'problem' I don't mind having:

Kolakoski: Vydar
Taeblewalker: Jandar

How do you know where youíre supposed to go?

Iíve always subscribed to the theory that if you keep doing something, you will at least find out what youíre not supposed to be doing, what direction youíre not supposed to be going in- and thus by default remain on your truth path. But thatís the same as walking into walls to find your way down a hallway.

How can one bypass all that thumping?

When I was younger I thought I knew which way was the best for me. But all sorts of things popped up, and some commitments have developed into families and people who need me in one way or another. I guess thatís what life is, but no matter how noble it sounds to live in the service of others somehow I cannot shake the feeling that there is something I should be doing that I currently am not.

Iíve had much shakeup in my life the last couple years- health problems, losing jobs- and though all of that was sometimes incredibly upsetting,...

or: 4 years and $13.50 shipping later...

I'm reminded of this blog post, where I contend that I'm not going anywhere.

And I wasn't. But I am. Kinda.

This week, I sold most of my semi-valuable figures. I was short on cash, and I hadn't played Heroscape a single time with my collection since GenCon outside of a cool tourney in Calumet City, IL.

I've still got figures that mean a bit to me, like my Gruts, Krug, Nilfheim, W1, W8, and the D&D stuff. But my keeping some of it has just as much to do with how little I can get for them.

I'm bringing this up not for pity or anything, but just to let people know what's up, and to make it less of a surprise for those who end up listening to the Plaid Hat Podcast episode 45 when it goes up next week. Many people would do this kind of thing quietly... but with nearly 7k posts, I didn't do much quietly here. I still spend a fair bit of time posting about games, but...

What's with the pinecone?

Iím art gallery sitting again. Gives me time to think while earning a small fee. They seem to like me- perhaps because Iím not too judgmental, and shower pretty darn regularly. Iím also very imaginative. To me art must have some merit. It can be beautiful, or moving, or have some fantastic meaning behind. Itís got to give me something positive- a feeling, a sense of awe, an insight- or I think itís junk. This is where my good imagination comes in- I can find meaning in things others cannot.

This artist is extremely engaging- very positive, upbeat, happy, smiley, - a real treat. But her show is a collection of sculptures and images which I can describe only as gauze with blood on them. And I donít understand it at all.

There is a really big gauzy pile, sort of tied and sculpted into nothing recognizable, and in spots it is soaked with red colour- it has to signify blood- what else could it be? Then there are some gauzy bloody things on the...
