As expected, fatherhood has somewhat diminished my hobby time and many of my energies have been diverted to aspects of the hobby that can be done through books or my phone, reading, researching, planning, etc. I've also begun dabbling a bit more in play by post RPG games which has been fun, as well as … Continue reading Progress Update – May to August 2022
