So some updates for the Urbanites that I know check in here once in a while.
MWM is humming away on the project. The latest update is here, but the short of it is, they’re working on it. However, the holidays and logistics of making use of their new purchasing power has slowed their output. They are promising more concrete news next month and I will keep you up to date on anything that I hear between now and then.
Urbanite activity remains much the same as it has for these past few months. I’m aware of a Star Wars: The Old Republic group going on Friday nights. I’m also aware of a mumble based pen and paper RPG group going on Saturday mornings. I’ve also heard rumblings of the occasional Champions Online game and that is where many old City of Heroes players went after the fall, so it might be worth checking out.
Personally, I’ve been using this time to catch up on old fiction that’s been laying around, waiting on me to consume. I’m trying to finish up The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I’m watching Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 on Netflix right now (a show so good I may just have to blog about it), and trying to finishing The Tomorrow Girl, as well as reading The Covenant of Primus, and Hyrule Historica. All in the midst of Christmas Preparations.
Speaking of which, I’m going to be taking the next 2 weeks off from the blog after this post today. With both Christmas and New Years falling on Wednesdays this year and all the usual holiday craziness that ensues, it’s just economical for me to take this time off so that I can regroup and reset. Next year I may look at getting ahead with some posts so I’ll have some pre-written stuff to tide over the time when I’m not actively writing, but for now we’ll keep things nice and simple and say we’re taking a vacation until the start of next year.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday season, no matter what or when you celebrate, and I’ll see you all next year.
