Sometimes life can get very heavy. Things from every direction, even the unexpected directions that have no angels that a human mind can perceive strike you and weigh you down. Holidays, the shopping and money sink those Holiday’s represent, the ever-changing dynamic of family life and the collapse of a church community can all hit and hurt. Surprising I have recently found that I am afraid of my blog.
After October’s tremendous, record breaking numbers (over 9,000 views!) I will sit down, begin an article or a review or just some random observations of the gaming life and get scared and start to wonder what exactly I am hoping to achieve. Is what I am about to commit to .doc and blog worthy of those 9000 views? Is what I am writing up to the level my readers expect from me? I don’t know. So far the result is a very bad blogging month for me as so much from my normal life combines with so much from my gaming life. Innsfjord hit a dead end when I realized I couldn’t afford the needed artwork and maps and is pretty much limping along thanks to the dedication of the one artist I so far hired (thanks to you oh artist I will not name!). Helena is going pretty good, but with so much time now being taken by work (I work in shipping this time of year is hell) I barely have time to watch Sleepy Hollow much less do adventure design.
Since I’ve started the blog things have come along way. Originally a front for my Eira development I would like to think that Genius Loci has become much more, a place of sharing ideas, creations and thoughts with the rest of the gaming community. Which is actually why I write this post today, to give a small thanks to everyone who has visited here, everyone who has discussed my adventures, monsters and mechanic ideas with me and with each other. Genius Loci has now been around for six months and I am quite surprised it has lasted this long, quite surprised that on a “bad month” I drew 5,000 viewers and maybe, maybe have changed how some of you play your games or the creatures you have faced.
So, thanks guys! Let us hope for another great six months … and then worry about the future!
