Off the Beaten Cobblestones; Still Alive

Well, it's been awhile, hasn't it? I've been off in work land. Huzzah. Well, been working, been thinking, been philosophizing.

I've been running this blog, and others like it. All of them have been rather bland. The problem is that I have massive gamer ADD. There are the seminal favorites, Mordheim, 40K, D&D, Alternity, and the WoD.

The problem is that everything I've done is exclusive. All D&D, all Mordheim, whatever. This has been my most successful blog ever. Which is saying something. I'm not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing, maybe just a thing.

However, I've been thinking about it. Cobblestone Chaos. I tried to go with a very Mordheim feel, since I've been trying to do Mordheim stuff. However, the name itself is actually widely branching. Liberating actually. Within the confines of what I like, it covers everything. If it ain't cobblestones, its chaos.

I want to spout off all the amazing things that I think about. Things are going rough, and will probably continue to be rough until February. So while this will be chaotic. I want to expand and think more about what actually moves me in the gaming realm. I'm not going to be bound by one game, but let my whims hit the streets.

I'm off in realms of dreams of darkness and light. Clattering dice, fanciful worlds, and vast horizons. I've spent time in the depths of my mind and cracking the those of masters of the craft. Where does my mind wander? Here and there, back and forth, to and fro.

What are my latest ramblings, allow me to demonstrate with my favorite things, a numbered list.
1. I think that we might finish up the Mordheim Terrain at work. All during the week during working hours. I think it would be rather appropo that we make it into a ice setting. That way I can get some practice with some snow effects, and its all chalked up to seasonal enthusiasm.
2. I really want to play some Mage. Actually, I really want to play TWO games of mage at the same time. One group Traditions, and the other a Technocracy group hunting them. I think that would be a ton of fun, until one group got smarter then the other, then it would be a shit ton of fun. Cross-overs and double-crosses. The problem is that Mage is not a good starter for WoD, nor is it a good game for most people. I would need some highly dedicated players, and good ones that have a great grasp of the games central conceit.
3. Eldest Child is playing in a 4th ed campaign with his buddy and his buddy's family. Half of me wants to break them of the habit, the other wants to encourage it by showing him other games. Ah, such is life.
