Exploring worlds - off the gaming table...

I'm too embarrassed to look at the date of my last blog post - it must have been months ago!

To be honest, I haven't given the blog much thought for several reasons.

1.) I have barely played any Warhammer 40K over the last few months. I got in a game of 8th edition with my Black Templars against some Orks (and lost).

2.) I have lost interest in 40K and Age of Sigmar. For both, I just can't keep up with all the news, new releases and other information that is floating around. A bit too overwhelming for a casual player such as myself and not worth the effort until a Codex for the Tau comes out (hopefully not too far away now).

3.) I have been completely engaged in computer RPGs, and have found them completely engrossing. I have clocked hundreds of hours into Divinity Original Sin 2 (100+ hours), The Witcher 3 Game of the Year Edition (almost 200 hours), Witcher 2 Assassin of Kings (30 hours so far. I have been boring friends with just how amazing the Witcher 3 was and how it may have ruined other games in the future because it is just sooooo good!

I have always enjoyed CRPG, having played the various Baldur's Gate games, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity etc. but Divinity 2 and Witcher 3 helped me fall back in love...
...hard! I'm already trying to find something to play in anticipation of finishing Witcher 2. (Pillars of Eternity 2 should be out this year, and other likely interim options are Dragonage; Inquisition, and Tyranny. )

So, where to with my tabletop gaming?

I don't seem to have any enthusiasm for painting at the moment, and until the Tau Codex comes out it will be difficult to get enthused about other armies. However, I could use this time to start saving up for the new Codex. It might not be long, as some rumours have it as the next codex due. 

We'll see!

In the meantime Witcher 2 beckons. I need to help Geralt of Rivia find some king-slaying assassins, locate a lost love, retrieve my memory and clear my name!
