“I am a lineman for the county,
And I drive the main road.
Searchin’ in the sun for another overload,
I hear you singing in the wire.
can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line.”

— Glenn Campbell - Wichita Lineman

All Good Things

… must come to an end. Like they say, nothing lasts forever.

It’s with a sad and heavy heart that makes me realize that my Saturday night game group might be coming to an end.

Just three years ago I had seven regular players around the table who’d pop by and roll dice and socialize, today it’s been just two players and gaming on a Saturday evening has taken a back seat to life activities as well. With players leaving town to seek their education, work and whatever life happens to bring in their way.

Over the years I had players come and go around the table, because the group dynamic didn’t sit well with other players and some players refuse to play with another player at the table. It’s this and with the realization that the town I live in is dying. There are other groups in town that play so that makes rounding up new players tricky.

At one time there were up too three hobby/game stores in town but overtime they have gone the way of the Dodo bird. Now, there is none, no place to put up a bulletin stating that you are looking for players.

I’ve also been running a game or two via roll20 and also Google+ via web cam and on line dice rolling mechanics. It keeps my hopes alive of eventually finding players to fill the empty slots around the game table.

When, or if, my Saturday group perishes there will also be the tabletop online to fill that void.
