You Know What I'd Like?
To play some games. Not run them - play them. Particularly, I'd like to finally get to play Talislanta (one of the older versions) or give Dungeon Crawl Classics a whirl. Hell, I'd actually love to play Pars Fortuna or Mystery Men!
And I'd like to wargame. Nothing overly grand or complex - something fun and simple. Jason Sholtis has shared some spaceship combat rules with me and they look like a blast. There's also Swords & Shields from ckutalik at Hill Cantons, and I just got wind of a game called The Green and the Tan by Nathan Russell from Peril Planet. Even some old Warhammer would be fun. Best of all, though, would be Wells' Little Wars.
I'd like to sit back on a couch and read comic books for the better part of a day - Silver and Bronze Age stuff - classic stuff - and classic weird stuff like Weird War Tales and Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane. Just me and some comic books and a cold beer.
I'd like to take a road trip - maybe walk London Bridge in Lake Havasu and then cruise down to the Grand Canyon - or go to Zion. Throw some drinks and food into a cooler and take a road trip.
And I'd like to learn to draw. I used to mess with drawing, and I know that I'm never going to be an artist in that regard, but sometimes when I'm writing, I'd like to just be able to sketch something out, point to it and say, "Here - that's what's in my mind's eye."
That's what I want at the moment - which, when you get down to it, indicates that I have a pretty damn good life if those are my major desires.
