Reality & Fantasy

Just about everything is in hand for my upcoming wedding on Friday. We're planning a dress rehearsal this evening to iron out costume matters and so on. I've been amazingly relaxed about everything, possibly because I've not been entirely idle in my hobbies. They serve as a welcome distraction from planning venues, celebrants and reception menus and so on.

Jeff Bluebear's new
project Mythic Fangarm Quest reminds me of happy times spent playing D&D in the 80's and 90's. My old group split up long ago and of course I'm in another country now; but even so I still have a liking for the fantasy genre. I'm in the early stages of planning a modular dungeon complex scaled to 25/28mm using the Hirst Arts system of molds. The Merlin's Magic casting plaster (appropriate name!) is on order.

Once the whole set-up is built and painted I hope to arrange a play session or two in a local games store. Then if I find a willing customer I'll sell the dungeon and begin anew. That's one of the beauties of the molding system. It helps fund further projects, be they more Hirst Arts molds, wargames figures - or even mundane real-life matters.

AJ,

May your wedding go off without a hitch (except for the intended one, of course).

May your union endure as long, and be very fortunate and happy and humorous!

Hey A.J.

Welcome to the International Brotherhood Of Married Men! (Our motto is, "It's a heck of a union!"

As far as D&D/fantasy stuff goes, GenCon is going to be held in Indianapolis this August. St. Louis is about a 3 to 4 hour drive away.
