Site Update – The Plague

January 9th, 2013

I generally eschew the “I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting!” sort of posts (since I believe that most people don’t actually care and would rather just see the next substantive post pop up in their RSS feed). But I’m making an exception here because I know there are some people waiting on specific updates.

The short version: There is a very nasty flu going around Minneapolis right now and everyone in my family got hit with it. My mother was hospitalized with it; my wife is on Day 12 of it (and she caught it after being sick with a sinus infection for 9 days); my brother and sister-in-law have caught it; and my stepmother-in-law also has it. Personally, I’ve spent most of the last nine days running 102-degree fevers and fading in-and-out of patchy coherence. I’m definitely on the mend, but today was the first time I’ve been able to to do anything resembling constructive activity… and that’s only been in a handful of 10 minute bursts of energy.

So, generally speaking, this has sucked.

Long story short: I’m going to be working to get things back on track, but I’m basically behind on everything now so we’ll see how it goes. Expect some L&L updates in the next few days as I continue to mend. Expect actual new content for the Alexandrian to be a bit further out.

For right now, though, I’m going back to bed.

    Rest well, and I hope the rest of those troubled by this biological scourge are quick to mend. Healing Potions?

    Hope +1 on saving throws helps a bit. For one minute.

    The flu is no joke this year? (102 fever is no joke either!) Hope you and your family are feeling better now.

    Thanks to everyone for the sympathetic words!

    I’m still trying to get back on top of everything. My immediate family lost something like 50-60 productive days to the flu and my mother is still in hospice care as I write this. And it all came at pretty much the worst possible moment for me.

    I’m hoping to keep the Alexandrian seeded with some material from my personal campaign for the near future. But some of the dedicated Alexandrian content I was hoping to execute in 2013 will have to wait until later in the year I’m afraid.
