Procrastinating on Fun

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Obdormio @ 00:00

I’ve pretty much decided to try this online game idea. However, I also know that I don’t really have the time for the start-up yet – life’s a bit hectic at the moment. The result is that I still putter around with the idea, but not with the parts that actually matter.

See, all the important stuff from here on will depend largely on the players, should I find any, so until I’m ready to go looking, I can’t very well do much of the real work. So, in a characteristic move, I obsess over needless details. Except, in my head they’re obviously not needless. If I’m aiming to run a campaign focused mostly on a sea voyage, I want to know which sail I’m talking about when one of them catches fire.

I’ve been puttering around with the details of this ship for a couple of weeks now. I made a little floor plan, gridded out should combat arise, based on some other ship maps I found. I’m pretty pleased with the results, so long as I don’t think too closely about the scale.

So, yes, I’m procrastinating on something that is supposed to just be fun. That’s the level of procrastination I rise to.
