  • Aeon is back on track and all the teams are now on the same page. Time for the interweaving storylines and the big plot moves forward will everyone working at it from different angles.
  • I have continued to work on my new campaign. I am surprisingly ahead of my projections, but there is still work to be done. My players and several others are very interested in what I’m putting out so I’ll take that as a good sign.
  • Should be ready to go somewhere between August and October. Probably October since you know Diablo 4 is going to eat my soul in June and then my birthday month I usually take half off at least.
  • I continue my learning in the Virginia Board of Workforce Development program. I’m now into Phase Three and it’s going really good.

I’ve been looking forward to this game since 2018 and if the betas are any indication of it it’s going to be a helluva fun ride.
