Whats Happening Now

Sooooo, it has been several months and not a peep.

My Bad

The truth of the matter is that between the demands of my job and everyday life I have not had time to blog anything. I have been running an Adventurer Conquer King Campaign using the Obsidian Portal. This has eated up most of my blogging time. I probably should post some of my adventure logs here on my blog.

Stamus Contra Malum: 1013 YE

Stamus Contra Malum is an old school D&D campaign. The previous campaign we used the 1981 Dungeons And Dragons Basic and Expert Setmore commonly referred to as B/X D&D. For this campaign we are updating things a bit and we will be using the Adventurer, Conqueror, King Rules System or ACK, it is to me the spiritual successor of the 81 Basic/ Expert Rules.
The setting campaign is roughly based on the original D&D settings, The Known World, which was first detailed in the 1981 Dungeons & Dragons Expert Set and the module X1 – The Isle of Dread. Using just the information in these two books I proceeded to personalize it and made liberal changes.
With the update to the ACK Rules System, I took the time to add additional detail and retconned some minor details from the previous campaign using the default setting for ACK, the Auran Empire.

What Happened To All the Miniatures?

When I first started this blog it was going to be about my miniatures and my painting. I have posted any pictures in a long while.

The reason why is I have not been doing a lot of painting. I love painting and it kills me not to be able to. Unfortanutely painting has become almost impossible for me due to the fact my eyesight has deterioated to the point that I have lost depth perception and the ability to paint small detail.

After consulting with an eye specialst I was diagnosed with keratoconus in my left eye. The bad news is that it is irreversible short of a cornea transplant. If I am lucky it will not get any worse.

The good news, with a special contact I will be able to see more clearly and be able to paint again.

So I am looking forward to posting picture of my work again.
