Arcanacon, here I come...

The good news is, the game is basically complete. The only things outstanding are printing it off (and that's going to take a while) and working out my script for the game introduction. I'm probably going to run out of paper before I finish printing everything, but that's only going to be due to the fact that I will be doing my usual trick of taking an extra copy of the game along with me.

I'll be able to print out everything for the two sessions I am running, and some of the spare copy, and I'll pick up some more paper to print the rest tomorrow.

Arcanacon is Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (20th to 23rd of January) in Melbourne. I am running a 12 player freeform called 12/1 in sessions E and J (Session J is full). I hope to see some of you there.

The bad news is I am not sure what's happening with regard to accommodation while I'm down there.

The original intention was to crash at Stephen's place (paradigmshifty) for the duration, however, due to a universe beyond his control that may be a bit difficult. We will see what ends up happening.

For those interested, I am flying in on Qantas flight QF0621 on Wednesday the 19th, landing at 1605. I depart on Qantas flight QF0618 on Monday the 24th at 1305, landing in Brisbane at 1410.

Have fun in Melbourne. I'll be in Canberra at Cancon this weekend, playing in the DBM :)

As I have offered before, if your back can withstand sleeping on the floor for a few nights, you're welcome to stay at my place for the con - looks like James isn't going to be over from Adelaide and my darling Kim can't get any time off work, so I'd appreciate the company on the drive in :)

Thanks for the offer.

As soon as I find out what's happening from Stephen I'll let you know.

It's sort of sorted, I think.

I am not staying at Stephen's place, due to a lack of something to sleep on, however Martin and Lilli have volunteered their place, since they do have a spare room and futon.

However, the issue now is going to be transport. Martin and Lilli aren't even sure if they are going yet, and Stephen is only going to be there for the sessions he is running. Since I want to be there for the entire con, I'm not sure how I'm going to get there.

They live in Cheltenham, and I have no idea where that is in relation to you and/or the convention site. Could I get a lift if it's possible?

Sorry, I live in Croydon, which is about forty minutes away from Cheltenham, almost perpendicular to the direction I need to go to get to the con - for an idea, go to whereis.com and do a map directions from Bayswater Rd Croydon to Chesterville Rd Cheltenham to Hoddle St Collingwood and you'll see what I mean. You might be best taking the train in - change at Flinders St for a train that stops at Collingwood, which is about a two minute walk from the con and Cheltenham station looks to be about a ten minute walk from the Ludwells.

Cool.

Not knowing much about the make up of Melbourne I have no idea what's where. I'll work something out.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
