Aside from getting married, 2021 fucking sucked.
Anyway, this blog is about gaming, so.....
....gaming in 2021 fucking sucked.(Until the very, very end of the year, that is.)
-Started the year continuing the OSE game I started in summer 2020. It wasn't great. I've been working on a blog entry exploring why for a long time. In April, we took a hiatus for one of the three players to work on some creative/professional stuff, and I took the opportunity to quietly deep six the game.
-I had prepared to run six tables at KantCon, the tables all filled up, and then I had to go and cancel my trip and pull the rug out from under the convention. I didn't go for a lot of personal reasons I needn't discuss here. I'm embarrassed enough about my last minute cancellation, and leaving six tables empty, that I'll likely never return.
-Ran nothing else until December, when I started up my OpenQuest 3 game, of which I snuck in two sessions before the year closed. One of the players in OQ3 was in the OSE game and she much prefers the former to the latter.
-Presently have a manuscript of a game I've been waiting for quite some time. I haven't had a chance to dig into it, also because of various personal things, but I plan to start very soon.
I will probably write some thoughts on OpenQuest again in the near future. So far, the game is so simple it's hard to have much to write *about.* (Yes, that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Simple games, yo.)
