I wonder.. With the latest word from the CDC< about "those who are fully vaccinated, can now go maskless most anywhere', how THIS will impact gaming conventions?!

Really depends on the convention, I suppose. Some will probably still be canceled this year, just to play it safe. Others might open up normally, or at limited capacity. It will probably depend on a number of factors, such as where it is held, when it is usually held, how big it usually is, etc.

I feel your pain, JDM.

That is what makes the whole thing bearable. Better to be going crazy at work than going crazy looking for work.

On the bright side, I actually managed to put together a game. Sort of.

It's just one player (who is also fully vaccinated). I've decided to convert one of the old HHQ series, specifically Wizard's Challenge, over to 5E. My hope is to eventually build up a full group, some day. But for now, this will work.

She rolled a half-elf wild sorcerer. For those not familiar with the module, the HHQ series were a series of solo adventures--Fighter's Challenge, Wizard's Challenge, Cleric's Challenge, Thief's Challenge, etc. They tend to be roleplay heavy and combat light, since they are designed for a party of one. Wizard's Challenge is basically a magical murder mystery. This particular player enjoys interacting with NPCs and getting to know them, and that's a big part of this one, so it's a good fit. I'm hoping to have everything ready for our first session later this week, or failing that, next week.

I remember those. I use to use them to help get things going when party creation was dragging, This way the players that were done didn't have to wait on slow poke. The benefit was they had a leg up on XP. I didn't do it all the time though. I think drivethruRPG has the PDFs for sale.

As for the thread topic ... a group I played with reached out to see if I wanted to play in person. I would have been happy to join them, except conditions were not conducive to the style of mixed gathering. So I'll keep waiting and enjoy my refound love for paining minis.
