Letter from the edge of Christmas

Okay, calling this blog entry a "letter" is maybe a stretch, but this definitely feels like the edge of Christmas, given that tomorrow I have my office Christmas party and Clara has hers on Friday.

For the first time ever, I started my Christmas shopping in November, although that didn't stop me from waiting until the day before the work party to by my secret Santa gift.

Tabletop Role Playing Games!

Stranger Swedish Things 

I bought a game big game book, based on a long-time love of the work of artist Simon Stalenhag, who inspired many with his paintings of the rural Sweden of his childhood, chock full of giant robots and rusting futuristic metal hulks. Tales from the Loop is an old-school table-top role-playing game, in which you play young teens who solve mysteries in an alternate history 1980s where certain technologies blossomed, giving the world fusion, giant robots and mysterious particle accelerators which appears to be causing strange things to happen in the PC's neighborhood. The game is an absolute delight, it's well written with a really elegant set of easy-play mechanics and a clear focus on group storytelling, and the art is mostly Stalenhags brilliant work. I can't wait to get playing it, one day.
