First, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and all that stuff.
Alright, this is sort of old news, but there's some fanart for OMS that can be found here and here. Does it count if Breland is a friend of mine and awesome, or that MihoshiK is some kind of badass for commissioning a piece from jaggyd? I totally like to think it does.
Picked up Monster Hunter 3 the other day, but I haven't had a chance to play it much yet, though what I did play through was pretty neat; I'm still too busy working with New Vegas and being distracted by City of Heroes. I'm also trying to use the time that everyone's on break and there's a lull in tabletop gaming as folks go see their families to get caught up with my buffer. I've been doing two pages a day for this last week. While I haven't gotten back to the buffer I used to have, I'm at least into February with the pages.
I've been reading over Fantasy Craft lately, and it looks like a lot of fun. I was thinking about seeing if I can't take the setting of Ten-Ghost, wind the clock back a couple hundred years, and bang and smash the rules into working and running some local folks through an advencha! or two. I'm totally going to write up a Path of Ether and also use family names and guardian spirits as alignments.
In other news, I've since moved to using three-dimensional models to represent time and plot threads in OMS, since I couldn't make one on paper without it looking like a total mess. Also, after a discussion about gravity, photons, neutrinos (and the dark matter properties thereof), the dual aperture experiment, and quantum cascade lasers, I realize that if the Higgs Boson exists, I owe somebody five bucks. Take that as you will.
