Late to the Party...

... as usual.

So I just discovered that Christian successfully cast raise dead on the destination unknown blog last week. Thank goodness! I just wish I'd known sooner, though. I've been seriously bummed since hearing it was going way - which, by the way, was after it had already gone. (Like I said: "as usual.")

Christian's blog is - to me - the old-school blogosphere's equivalent of the quiet book shop you sneak away to when the rest of the world gets too intense; a nice, friendly place, mercifully free of sturm und drang.

Now I just need to find a cleric who's willing to cast remove curse on the Rust Monster blog - for less than 5sp, preferably.

"N is for Neville who died of ennui"

Thankfully, my name is not Neville - for multiple reasons, but in this context for the apparent potential of dying of ennui if so named.

I hate New York state. At the moment, this is primarily due to the soul-leeching winter season that in the best of times makes getting through to spring an arduous task. Of course, as regular readers may know, this particular winter has been far from "the best of times" in my part of the universe. Double whammy.

Anyway, I wanted to apologize for my lack of useful posts of late... just finding it a little hard to get motivated these days. Although suffering from lethargy and a concerning cough, I promise that the Rust Monster blog is not on its death bed. I'm confident it will be up and around in no time, although it may be a while before it can resume normal activities.

There's a New Rust Monster Coming to Town

Actually, a pair of 'em!

Otherworld Miniatures - purveyor of excellent old-school minis - is planning a mid-March release of a two-mini set of rust monsters. I must be slipping, because I wasn't aware of this. I have to thank Richard Scott for the friendly heads-up about it.

I'm getting a bit ticked off at Otherworld - their stuff is just too good to pass up! Now I have yet one more set to add to my seemingly-ever-growing Otherworld-ly wish list. First, those amazing pig-faced orcs. Then, the demon idol. And now, this...

When will this madness end?
