Prompted by a comment on my previous Colony post (hi Marcus), here's a quick update on the state of the game.
The good news - My call for players garnered a strong response, and we have a whole ream of vict... er doughty adventurers ready to roll (almost). Aside from some final inventory tweaking, we're almost ready to go.
The bad news - In early February, I came down with a case of shingles (which, trust me, you really never want to do). They've affected my eyes and made it nigh impossible to work at the computer. This makes running a PBM game... challenging.
The bottom line is, the game is in a limbo state until I'm back to normal. Hopefully, soon.
