My daily activities have, of late, been thrown into some confusion by a sudden development. There is, as so often, a young lady in the case - be that as it may, to cut to the quick of the matter, the East calls to me. Within mere weeks, I must gather my humble possessions (or rather, a small and portable selection of them, the remainder hopefully finding refuge in the attic of one relative or another) and depart for the Middle Kingdom - to Chang'An, the immemorial heart of China.

 

To put it another and less purple way, I am (visas permitting) heading off for a new job in Xi'an, in central China. And oddly enough this is pretty disruptive, so my communicating, writing, posting, gaming and generally everything is getting dropped while I try to sort it all out. Sadly this mean I have not been spending much time on the forums, and none at all writing posts, blogs or even scenarios. It's a bit of a wrench. Still plenty waiting on the back burner... I'll probably be fairly sporadic until late autumn when I've had a chance to settle into my new job, lifestyle and suchlike. After that I'm hoping to leap back into the fray and try to pummel some more of my ideas into shape. Fingers crossed that Yoggie doesn't fall foul of the Great Firewall!

 

One sad outcome of this is that I won't be able to attend Games Day this year, which is a huge disappointment. Unfortunately I don't have the freedom to take a holiday that soon into my new job, and I'll be tied to university terms anyway. I'll be very sad to miss it, and hope everyone else has a fantastic time and records everything for my vicarious enjoyment! Maybe some sort of virtual YSDCGD can be arranged for those of us unable to attend? No promises, but let me know if that might be interesting.

 

I'd also be keen to hear from any other Yoggies who might be around those parts - even in a roughly similar timezone would be nice. I fear a dearth of gaming lies ahead.

What a brilliant opportunity! It sounds like a great adventure ahead.

 

We will very much miss you at Games Day. As far as I know "Olde Yoggie" should still reach you. 🙂

Thank you both! I hope you both have a great time at Games Day. Roger, I'll be back in touch about those projects when I have some time.

Wow that's a big move! Hope you have a fantastic time. What an exciting adventure.

 

If you can't find face to face RPG players maybe you can manage something online? Either via Skype or Google Hangouts, or what about play by post forum play at https://www.callofcthulhu.org.uk/pbp/ I've been happily playing there for a very long time, in a large number of Call of Cthulhu games, and it works very well. It also caters for players worldwide, and in different time zones.

 

All the best!
