marcus 2013


Just signed up for Continuum, the biannual three-day games con at Leicester university at the end of July. It's a fun con with an emphasis on Runquest / Glorantha / Call of Cthulhu and a lot of freeform games - I've always had a really good time, and I'm looking forward to more of the same.

Vaguely thinking that it's about the right time to launch Flatland as a stand-alone game if I can get my act together in time.

See for details of the con. Hope I'll see some of you there.

So after I'd voted I went out to the pond in my sister's garden to get some weed for experiments for work. They warned me that there were quite a few tadpoles, also frog and toad spawn, so I ought to be careful not to take any. And indeed the water was churning from all the tadpoles eating goldfish food. Not to mention the fourteen adult frogs I counted clustered in the water, mostly around the edges of the pond, presumably the survivors from last year.

Not bad for central London and a pool that's only a little larger than a bath. At the weekend I'll try to get a few photos if they're still there.
