Games, games, games...

Arcanacon should be open for general entries about this time next week, so those of us who are running things at the con have been given a sneak peak at the website so we can check for errors, formatting and the like.

All I have to say is that the convention is going to be a problem. At least, working out a timetable is. There are 8 Freeforms (of which I want to play all of them, including the one I'm running), 2 Multiforms (probably want to play both of them) and 15 tabletops (of which I want to play 7 or 8 of them). That means that there are 16 or 17 sessions of a 13 session convention theoretically filled, and I have to run my game at least once, possibly twice, depending on numbers.

Oh dear. This looks like it's going to be fun.

I don't get to play at all :( Canteen is my domain this year. Oh well.

And you will do a marvelous job too!

You could arrange it to take a single session off sometime perhaps. That way you at least get to play something. Hilary usually managed it.

BTW - there are now D6 stress toys available, with the 1 side blank for printing...

Neat!

The important question is, however, how much?

I haven't checked yet. I'll let you know when I do.

Doh! Bad luck. At least it simplifies the timetabling issue, slightly. :)

Which one?

For you, anyway.

Not simpler any more. They've asked me to fill the gap with The Wake.

People actually play games at conventions?

Well, since I don't tend to run tabletops at conventions, and the most sessions I've ever run at a convention is 5 (three individual games), what else am I supposed to do in the free sessions? :)

And I wouldn't exactly use the term "play", more like socialise in a set context. :p

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
