Convergence finally asks me to be an Invited Participant, and what happens? I’m not even in the country for it.
It’s been a major break between posts here, and for good reason. At the beginning of May, I started a new job here in Taiwan. Yes, Taiwan. I visited again last summer and, as has now happened multiple (well, two) times with me, a short taste of Taiwan led to coming back for longer the next time. Since my last post, I’ve been incredibly busy moving and then establishing myself back here.
I’ve managed to have a few real-life adventures. Going to a different country is a sure-fire recipe for that. Looking at graves on distant hilltops; getting chased by barking dogs, and succeeding pretty well on my Intimidate roll with their irresponsible owner; going to see the sun set over the ocean and the mountains; lots of little side-adventures to explore this alley or that temple. And of course all the usual hardships of trying to establish oneself in a new country. Not a lot of time for blogging.
Gaming has been sparse so far, but I’ve now had a very successful session of my monthly Blade & Crown group via video chat. It is very nice, but very busy, to live in the future.
Hopefully, as I get more settled, time will allow for more adventures and more blogging. Hopefully we can all keep having adventures — the good kind — in the meantime.
