You know the story. Fell in with a group, group falls apart, but you want to keep playing. Who tells the story? Who takes over for DM? Well, if no one does, you stop playing.

So that’s why I started telling stories. And I’ve been doing it ever since. Now we’ve gone well past books and into the digital world, and so I’m going to try building a story using an editor.

The game is Shadowrun: Returns, specifically Dragonfall. Now, I don’t know a whole lot about the Shadowrun universe, so I’m going through all the primers I can, but more importantly, I’m going to figure this whole editor thing out if it kills me.

I’m blogging mostly to have a place to store ideas. I want to keep track of how many hours I put into this project, but I also want to track thoughts and ideas. Also, call it a stretch of vanity, but having stepped up in my group because no one else wanted to, I want to lay a foundation for others. It’s not the first time I’ve ever attempted an “advice” column, but here at least there’s some context.

I’m not a vlogger; I don’t do the facecam thing. I write. So that’s what I’m gonna do.
