Master Mines

We’re digging RPGs

To sleep, perchance etc.

So, I really don’t know what the next step is for OM, and I keep having ideas for new games (and even a complete draft cooked up in a couple hours at Go Play NW after playing Sea Dracula, the most awesome game ever cooked up in a couple hours). To me, this says that it’s time to lie fallow and let things germinate for a bit. I’m gonna take a few weeks off, maybe work on some music. I am still reading and commenting.

Speaking of digging around in Vincent’s old stuff, I found this thing on journeyman games. I thought of it this weekend when I flashed on a game idea so huge and terrifying that I am not even going to think about mechanics for a good long while. I’m just going to pick up some books, do some research, and plant that stake in the ground somewhere out in the future, a game I’m going to do when I’m ready.

  1. Sounds good, Mike. It takes guts to make decisions like this. Does this mean we may get another ep of OCAR soon? 😉

  2. In a lot of ways, A Penny For My Thoughts is consciously intended as a journeyman work. It’s not the big, huge, awesome thing that I’m dying to get out there. It’s the first step in figuring out how to put the ideas I have for games into workable form. I’ve got other ideas for things that come later. So yeah, I can see where you’re coming from.

  3. I’m not the (only) bottleneck on OCAR, but coincidentally, yeah, we’ll have something soon.

  4. Let’s set a “ping time” of shortly after GenCon, to see how things are germinating for you around then. That work for you?
