So, as you may have noticed, I’m a bit of a geek. I write about monsters and magic and swords. I like board games and role playing games and things of that ilk. So, over the previous weekend I took a few days off from my boring day job and a few days off from writing Eryn’s Tale to take my son to Origins 2018 in Columbus OH.
The trip was good except for the fact my 2 year old vehicle decided that the air conditioner would be broken for a 7 and half hour 90 degree car ride. But, with the unpleasant drive behind us the trip was fantastic and I got to introduce my son to the wonderful world of RPGs.
We chose to introduce him in the most traditional way possible and join a 5 Edition D&D game. He got quite the introduction and my blue haired 13 year old son got to play with the lead game designer of D&D itself. Jeremy Crawford.
Most people likely don’t know who he is. I sure didn’t. But I think it is pretty awesome for my son to get to meet someone who created a game we were playing. And, in fact, he was a fantastic Dungeon Master.
Origins overall was fairly awesome as well as we spent a weekend playing games and giving myself a good vacation from writing that I very much needed to work through the “middle” that I discussed in my previous post.
That being said, it worked! I have finally finished the outline and the rework of Eryn’s Tale. I expect that this entire book to be complete in a few weeks. Then, editing, of course, and after that a launch of the entire book in a few months. I am very excited to finally complete the first three books in the Isiir series.
That’s all for now. Back to the writing for me!
