Damn, Mike.  Tell it like it is!

Another week goes by for me, and we enter another design season.  Autumn and Winter are both traditionally very busy times for me when new work is on hand, because to maintain a construction schedule in the spring, which usually begins about the third week of February, you have to cram in a lot of paperwork, submittals, construction documents, and assorted materials between October and January.  And so it is for me, right now – I’ve nothing to complain about, though.  Work is good.  I only ever really get edgy when there’s nothing to do, and right now I have as full a schedule as I can hope for.

It also leaves me dreadfully fatigued, though.  Still!  For those of you who are gaming-inclined, it may interest you to know that I just completed a bit of work in collaboration with the team over at Vanguard Miniatures in the UK – a short rulebook for a new game being developed there called “Dominion.”  It’s a unique project in that it’s being released episodically, much like a serial story, and has a brand new line of miniatures to go with it.  You can find out more from Vanguard Miniatures’ website, and download the rules for free if you’re interested!

Oh, and since, unfortunately, I neglected to post these wonderful new SpiderForest Comics last week, here are more lovely new additions to our team!  Check them out!
