Forgive me, By The Stars, for I am strained. It’s been eight days since my last confession.
The day before Thanksgiving, we had to give back the foster kid we thought we would be able to adopt. That sad event dominated the entire week. I sent out an e-mail about setting up a playtest, but have yet to get any response.
I also watched Revenge of the Sith again. It fulfills nearly every criticism I’ve ever heard of the Star Wars saga. It’s a train wreck of a film, a catastrophic failure of visual storytelling. And while it did get my blood boiling, my anger was all focused on Lucas-bashing and not game-building. So I suppose the experience wasn’t a total loss. It reminded me that anger can only lead to the Dark Side.
