All kinds of ideas were flying around my head last night, and I was far too groggy to do anything about most of them. Thankfully, a few of them survived the sleep cycle that I can write about them this morning. Like, there’s this dice thing I need to get off my chest. I wanted to switch my focus from The Ascalon Horror back to remodeling Arkham Horror again based on a dice issue.

Namely, I figured how to integrate the Elder Sign dice into Arkham Horror, and that’s what I want to do first, because I have the materials available for it. You know, unlike The Ascalon Horror, which will use a number of custom elements I simply don’t have on hand. I know, it’s kind of petty, and I was doing so well, too!

Well, then I remembered these funny little 1x1x1 wooden cubes I picked up from Michael’s back when I was running the convention circuit, which I used as stand-ins for characters when it was too cumbersome to lug around a bag of D&D Miniatures. I realized I had easy access to custom dice if I was willing to do a little drawing.

It must feel like a tug-of-war, seeing me blog about some triumph related to The Ascalon Horror, then go silent on it for several weeks, then post about another triumph, then fall silent again. It certainly feels like tug-of-war from my end. Despite clear interest, I’ve been rather scattered this year. I feel like I’m on borrowed time.

So, it’s back to the salt mines once more, back to make sure I’m cranking out those encounter tables as quickly as possible. I do have a vested interested in the completion of the project. I do. And I have the wherewithal to finish it, the talent, and the motivation. (I do, right?) I just need to knuckle down and keep working at it.

“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.”
