Lol wut

 Oh yeah shit I have a blog. 

Anyway, I haven't been doing much gaming. I run OSE once in a great while, though mostly it's just a pretense to chat with friends online. Only a small portion of the sessions actually involve doing things with characters in dungeons. The random treasure generators have started to be kinder to the players, and so they creep closer to leveling. 

Despite my lack of playing, my collecting of playing materials continues to grow. I buy books for the covers, or I receive rewards for Kickstarters I pledged to back before the Dark Times, before the Empire. 

In non-gaming news, I'm returning to teach at my old school in a brand new position that was just created. I got the vaccine, so I can return to my favorite pass time of licking parking meters. 

I do, in an abstract way, look forward to gaming with people around a table again, but also I've got this creeping, impossible to ignore feeling that those days are just gone now. KantCon is supposed to be in-person this summer, but the idea of being around that many people, a number of them likely ignoring safety protocols as is the American Way, fills me with a sense of dread. I might have the shot, but people close to me that I care about do not. 

The limited-edition cover of Candlekeep Mysteries is pretty dope, even if WotC is often terrible and 5e is just milquetoast in general.
