Time is a Variable Thing

(free swag - post a comment to this thread by sometime in the morning of November 6, 2011)

The months leading up to my wedding on this coming Saturday seemed to take forever, but the days of this week so far have blown past me, and today has gone by in the wink of an eye it seems.

All this, of course, is the exact opposite of the typical RPG campaign.  There, days, weeks, months... sometimes years go by with a few words from the GM.  Then you hit combat, and 5 minutes of game time can take an hour or two of real time to complete.

I've been reading some more of Designers & Dragons in my spare time,  It's an amazing read, but I doubt I'd be reading it if I hadn't received it as a reviewer's comp.  Content wise it is a home run and a half, but I can't help but compare it to the Castles & Crusades Castle Keeper's Guide - great piece of work, but the pricing is a bit high.  Maybe it will come down in price, maybe it will sell at it's current price.


  1. You might not want to compare your upcoming wedding to game time, but congratulations - and I hope you're as happy as I am.

  2. @Tim - my anxiety over the wedding day is hoping everything goes off OK. I'm looking forward to the day after the wedding, when I'll actually be able to relax and cherish it. :)

    Still, if you ever need to remove gold from an adventurer, let him get married. I never realized all of the costs involved. On some level, I think I still don't. Ignorance can be bliss at times... heh

    @Whisk - thanks for the wishes. We have our marriage license in hand

  3. ...oops - marriage license in hand and we're not afraid to use it!

  4. Good luck and remember to have fun!

  5. Time is funny. Seems like I just met my wife and we have a 2 year old son and celebrated our 4th anniversary this week. I love her more now than I did the two times I married her (once in a small legal ceremony the second in a bigger destination wedding).
