New tradition: when I sell out of games, it’s dog getting tickled time. On loop. For the rest of the convention.
Walking out of the convention tonight after closing, I looked in here and spotted a copy of my game sitting there. You can see it to the right. People had borrowed it from the game library. They were playing it. Right up until they got kicked out. I stood there for a good five minutes looking at that game. People probably thought I was drunk or lost. I’m at least one of those things as I type this, but was neither then. I was just happy.
About to do another multi-state drive this week, and once again really only seeing America’s litter box.
Things will get greener and international later this year, but for now it’s more desert and roadside dinosaurs.
Which is just fine with me. Because the road is the road.
And I have developed a weird sort of love for the desert.
The path of Chapter One of Find the Starlight ended at this poem. After people dug up wood boxes from ghost towns and observatories, held old photographs over flames to reveal hidden writing, traveled to San Francisco to find a specific card from a fortunetelling machine, lined up holes in medallions to find cities, and stared at ceilings in distant hotels, they are now exactly halfway through this poem that will end the chapter and give a very important key to someone before beginning chapter two. This story is far from dead, despite the fact that M suddenly and mysteriously vanished months ago. There is a very active community of people faithfully working on these puzzles. I don’t post about it all because their work belongs in their hands. But it is very, very exciting. I think the rest of this poem will go very quickly for them, as they are almost out of the woods, so to speak. Then the first book comes out, and this story really begins.
Q:Played SuperFight! for the first time last week and it was a hit with my friends. So now we're going to have a party for it where we send out pre-selected cards and everyone dresses as their given fighter. We are all very excited to say the least.
Welp. Apparently someone beat me to the entire story for Find the Starlight.
