Two Years And Counting

I almost forgot that today is the second anniversary of Strange Stones! I certainly haven’t been posting at the pace I started out at, but I also haven’t managed to give up completely. So I’ll call it a victory and keep on keepin’ on.

I would be remiss in noting this anniversary without extending hearty thanks to all my loyal readers. You dudes & dudettes make this something worth doing and I’m glad I’ve gotten to know some of you by way of this exercise in geeky self-indulgence.

Also, I haven’t given up the idea of trying to run some kind of game or another online with you fine folks. I just haven’t had the time I’d like to have to really delve into that kind of thing. Soon, though, I should. And then you’ll all be in trouble. Muhaha.

    And a happy, content-filled two years it’s been, too. Please keep plugging away.

    V.P., I’d play in any game you felt like running. A Southern Gothic in which all the PCs are members of a once-proud plantation family reduced to quivering patches of green slime? Check. A mini-campagin wherein the characters are former 80’s sitcom child-stars, now reduced to a nihilistic existence washing cars or doing dry-cleaning while dodging creditors and fighting off addictions? I’m there. With bells on.

      Aw, thanks, G. But how did you know about the “experimental” campaigns I tried to run in the late 90s? 🙂

        I used to play Aunt Tillie, remember? The aging southern belle known for her absinthe-drinking, flower-arranging skills, and occasional, winsome indiscretions with Randy Willows, the gardener.

        Before she was turned into a 2’x2′ patch of green slime, that is.

          You never really knew just how uncomfortable those scenes with Mr. Willows made me, did you? I hated to turn Tillie into slime, but it was the only way out, man!

          But I truly did enjoy your turns as Oscar Guardado (TV’s Pedro Jimenez from That’s Our Pedro!). I still wish that campaign hadn’t ended. But you know, when half the players get busted for smuggling Chinese knockoffs of YSL bags & Ray Bans frames and lead-tainted cabbages into the country, it really is just time to quit.

            Oh, you’re talking about 80’s Faded Glories, not Green Slime Gothic, now.

            Actually, Rodney played the Pedro character. I played Graham Niles from Honey I Co-Signed for the Kids! The one with the failed comeback career as a children’s book author? You remember him. Ended up as a renaissance fair male prostitute.

            Personally, I thought smuggling the Ray Bans past customs was thrilling, and a high point of the campaign.

      Thanks, Rob. And early congrats on your own impending anniversary! These last two years have been an awfully nice time to be a geek. Here’s to many more for both of us!
