Last week, during a Wednesday night game with +Chris C. and +Ken H they spoke about taking a break from gaming over the summer. I should clarify, a break from weekly gaming. We went back and Chris has been a member of our Monday night crew for over two years, Ken I believe was four years. And I think I have been playing steady on Mondays for 6 or 7 years now. Our Monday night crew is pretty dedicated so we only miss a handful of Mondays a year.
As we spoke, a break sounded good to me also. Plus Whisk said she wouldn't mind me taking a break also. Maybe to do a few extra things while the good weather is here. It doesn't last long. And for me, it's another night I could write.
Let me clarify break for me. Just not getting into any weekly games. I'll still play in pick up games once a month or so. Ken, Chris and I still have plans on doing something. I still plan to attend B-Team game, they only happen once every 4 or 6 weeks. Plus I hope to get involved in a few on-line games and game with some new folks. And since my good friend Dwayne has come home, we've been getting together monthly to game face-to-face.
The break is only from weekly gaming. I'll still blog, write micro-adventures and bug people for art for the Manor. None of those things will halt. If anything I hope to be more productive.
I'm sure a month in I'll be looking at the clock on Mondays wondering what games are going on. But I think a few months from a regular schedule game will clear out the gaming chakras.
I've got a few more weeks before my impending break. I'm looking forward to it because I hope to take that extra time to develop a project or two that requires more time and attention. Until then...
I'll be chilling wondering what head to use tonight.
