Touching base

I haven’t been posting a lot because I’ve had several other side things going on.

The boys continue to do well, growing like crazy, and I have some more pictures and video I need to post.

I’ve got a roughed-out bit of a political post, exploring the financial disincentives for people even at high wage levels to work when you have two non-school-aged children. Current tax policy discourages workforce participation in this regard, and I have the numbers to prove it.

I also have a couple more tales of player silliness in roleplaying games floating around in my back brain that I want to post.

I’ve been working on a Savage Worlds Showdown conversion for Warhammer 40k. Basically, I have a pile of different minis from different lines, and would like to group them by line and have them fight battles. Showdown seems a good way to accomplish this. Of course, I’ll post what I have once I have something to show.

Finally, I started reading Monster Hunter International. Highly recommended for gun nerds and monster movie fans. I mean, in the first chapter, the protagonist’s boss turns in to a werewolf and tries to eat him, so our hero shoots him in the face then pushes him and his desk out a 14 story window. As it turns out, there is already an RPG for it (uses HERO system rules. Not my favorite, but solid), which is likely worth picking up if only for all the fluff to use to do a SW port – this type of monster hunter game is exactly where SW shines. Heck, a Showdown scenario where you’re breaking up a den of vampires or whatnot would be awesome.

So, anyway, that’s what’s doing.
