Panic levels dropping...

I'm still panicking though.

A week and a half till I fly down, less than two till the actual convention, so of course I am panicking.

However, all the living characters for Dead Reckoning as written, and I've completed the first two of the dead ones, meaning I'm at half way of the character sheets. I've also written out the rules sheets, plus a brief history of the town it's set in, but an overview of the US - Mexico War (don't ask) but most of that was swiped from the web anyway.

More importantly I understand what I am doing now. The characters are no longer running around willy-nilly, individuals all, but are instead well understood parts of a whole.

It's gone from "Will I get this finished in time?" to "Will I get this finished in time to my standard?" to "I will get this finished in time to a high standard, but will I have enough time to do everything else I want to do before I leave?"

Strangely enough, the 10 living characters I have done have been the hardest. The two dead characters I've done were easier to write (but took a lot longer, due to there being a lot more information) than all the living one. I think I know why.

The game revolves around the dead characters. They are the entire reason for the game. As a result, they have been developing in my head for a long time (since Conquest last year, as a matter of fact) and are almost complete before they even make it to paper.

The living characters I didn't even worry about for the most part until I actually started writing them down, so as a result I am inventing them as I write them, making them a lot harder to do.

Back to writing dead people...

paradigmshifty, are you going to be an assistant GM for me? Scott is, and I was wondering about you? For both Dead Reckoning and No Heir I think I'm going to want extra.

May well depend on when your games are scheduled. Family will be arriving sometime over Easter, so I possibly won't be available after that point.

Cool.

Dead Reckoning is scheduled Session B (Friday 4 to 7pm) and Session G (Saturday 7:30 to 10:30pm).

No Heir is scheduled for Session E (Saturday 12:30 to 3:30pm) and Session J (Sunday 4 to 7pm) with possibly another one Session A (Friday 12:30 to 3:30pm) or Session L (Monday 9am to 12pm).

If you can make it, I would really appreciate your help. If you can't I understand perfectly, as family always takes priority (especially when it's that family). :)

Sunday/Monday will be the problem days - best not to count on me for those two.

I'll be happy to help for the first two though.

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
