Job Hunting Blues

My apologies for the long drought of material - job hunting and spousal dental surgery has kept me in a place where writing has been impossible.  I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so writing will happen again in the near future, but probably not until August.

In the meantime, the weekly Shadowrun game has continued and I have plenty of notes from that to convert in to proper summaries and the Champions game is stuttering, but the current Issue should complete this month.  I'm also distracted by the New Shiney of a D&D 5E campaign set in the Holy Roman Empire, circa 1648.  I like the idea of running a game in a semi-historical setting and the Holy Roman Empire is a wonderfully fragmented mess of states, each vying for power while scrupulously avoiding being gobbled up by the larger powers.  In 1648 the Thirty-Years War has just concluded and the Germanic states are decimated, providing a post-apocalyptic setting with a thin veneer of civilization on top.  Should be fun.
