      Hi everyone. Sorry for posting this on such short notice, but I didn't really have the time to do it earlier, so I had to get on it now.
      In my previous blog post, I mentioned that tomorrow, I might be required to come in to do some work on my previous casual job that I was phasing out in favour of my new one at Seeing Machines as I did not seem to be enlisted on their roster for tomorrow or Saturday, and this would mean that I would have to reschedule my planned hold on Discord. Well, as it turns out, the managers there would like me to come in, and while it is only for a small amount of work, it will still need to be done in the morning. Fortunately, the CIT class that I usually have on Thursday mornings isn't running at the moment as we're just working on an assessment item that includes a presentation component, which do not seem like they will be done until from next week onwards. Because of this, I've decided to push my hold back from tomorrow to Thursday. Thankfully, this still lines up my preference of trying to space each hold apart by half a month, so I can make such a change in good conscience (with regards to my OCD, of course).

      Hello! I think it's well overdue I actually post this thing. The set is now fully complete and has gone through a few internal limited playtests. The set is essentially in a finished stage at this point, but may still change based on feedback now that it's available to everyone.
      Special thanks to @ZirconiumPen for invaluable assistance with wording consistency and general editing, as well as participating in several enlightening playtesting sessions.
      Big thanks to @Biku, @Bombality, @Sunflower and @Jailor Eckman for allowing me to use their art for cards. Not all cards have art, but the once that do are elevated by these incredibly talented Omorashi artists.
      This is just the visual spoiler (that is to say, the cards themselves). Additional resources such as a Cockatrice package will be added in the future. Enjoy!

      Hey, everyone. Quick update on my second Discord hold for this month.
      I said that I'd be having it done on the Wednesday of this coming week, saying that this was under the assumption that my proposed schedule for working at 'Seeing Machines' did not end up going ahead. It turns out that it HAS, but there's a bit of an amendment to this. Apparently, next week, it's possible that I may not be written in to work on the Wednesday due to some issues with the roster formation. The problem there is that, if this is the case, then I might not actually be able to do the hold then. I think I've mentioned the casual job I had before going into 'Seeing Machines', saying that it's something I do on a fortnightly basis on Wednesdays. If I'm not called in to work at 'Seeing Machines' that day, I may go to that other job instead. I'd sent out an informal notice of resignation to the manager, but I think they're still looking for someone to fill in for me, as the other person who does the job also works every other week, and they'd need someone to fill in for me once I'm out. That said, I did mention that I'd rather not be juggling two jobs at a time, so I don't know how likely this is. Besides: they may have found a replacement for me by then. We'll still go on the assumption that I can do the hold on Wednesday, but if not, I'll write another blog post to say it's been rescheduled.

      Hey, everyone.
      Just got started on my newest upload block, so I figured this was a good time to make a post on my next Discord hold. Those who were there will know that it was a session where I drank an additional fluid alongside my normal water, so this next one will just have water. I'm going to make an attempt to drink two whole loads of water from my 750mL bottle, because I've not been doing that lately, and I REALLY need to give myself that push to adjust my bladder capacity back to that point.
      The time's gonna be the same: a two-hour hold, going from 10:30AM to 12:30PM AEDT. The actual day is a little harder to gauge, though. I'm starting my first full shift at Seeing Machines this Monday, and it's gonna be going for eight hours. Currently, I've stated that my preferred schedule is to work the shifts that run from 7AM to 3PM over three days in the week, those being Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. At this point, only that first shift is confirmed, so I need to hear on what's going on with my other preferred days. You may remember that my previous hold was on a Monday, that being the 9th. Because of my usual policy of having my holds be half a month apart, there would be either fifteen or sixteen days between it and my upcoming one. The problem is that if I do sixteen, then the next hold would fall on a Wednesday, and if that's a working day, then I can't do it then. Because of this, I'm probably gonna have to do it on a Tuesday. In this case, that would be the 24th. Also, my next "Garry's Mod" upload falls on the day that I work, so I don't have a whole lot of time to make something in "Garry's Mod". I'll still do my best to deliver, though.
      Something else I want to just bring it up quickly: up until now, the only alternate fluid I've had with water is various flavours of fruit cordial, and even THAT's just 80% water. I'm gonna see if I can get my father to buy a case of the beers that he sometimes gets to use. I'm not gonna tell him WHY I want them, obviously, but I'll see if I can give him a nudge in that direction.
      So that's it for now. Talk again soon!

      Hi, everyone. Got some rather unfortunate news to share with you.
      Following the end of my previous upload block on my "Garry's Mod" image thread, I mentioned that I wasn't sure if I'd be able to continue doing them for much longer, especially given that I had reached a thousand active addons. I've been doing a little bit of fiddling around with it for the fast week or so to test exactly what's happening with addons, and what I've found is something that is... quite a problem. Turns out that one thousand IS the limit to how many active addons I'm able to have for any sessions of the game I run. I figured that what would happen is that the earliest of my addons, which would be the ones I've probably got no more use for at this point in time, would not be mounted to the session, and I would only be able to use the most recent ones. As it turns out, this isn't the case. In fact, it actually seems to be random on which addons are available for me to use within a session. This means that if I try getting any more, there's no hard guarantee that they'll work within a session. I want to make sure I know with 100% certainty that they'll be working, so this isn't something that sits well with me.
      Something you need to be aware of, which I have mentioned before, is the fact that I don't just use "Garry's Mod" for the content I put up on here: I use it to create stuff for myself. Sadly, if I'm having to delete my older addons to make room for the new ones, I'm gonna eventually reach a point where those addons that I treasure the most would need to be taken out, and that's something I just can't bring myself to do. For the longest time, I've maintained a policy of trying to not reuse characters for scenes that I do, and with this revelation, it seems I was right to have that in place. Ultimately, I would like to preserve my map addons more than I would my model addons as I like to experiment with different characters in different places. Not something I'd necessarily put up here on the site, mind you: it'd be just for my own amusement. All up, I'd say that around half of all of the addons I currently have are ones I know I'd like to keep, but I don't know if I should just toss the rest out in case I find myself wanting to keep them as well.
      Suffice to say, this is NOT an easy position I'm in. At the end of the previous block, I mentioned that if I WAS to do another one, it'd likely have to be another very short one. There's a CRAP-ton of other things that need my attention at the moment, and I can't afford to have the stuff I do here divert me from them too much. Plus, I've mentioned a number of times now that when "S&box" officially drops for the public, I'd be dropping my "Garry's Mod" content completely and transferring over to it. However, that depends on how many addons are available for IT at the time of its release, which I don't imagine will be very many, if any at all. It's still slated for a Q2 release this year, so it'll most likely come out at the end of June.
      As for future "Garry's Mod" content: that potential future upload block is mentioned will be going ahead. Previously, I've stated that I'd rather not wait more than six weeks between each of them. However, for this one, I've decided to say 'stuff it' and have it start six weeks and one day from when the last one ended. The previous one ended on the 1st of April, so I'm planning to have the next one begin on the 14th, which is just over a week away. It's only going to contain six images, which means IT will become the shortest block I've done to date, breaking the record set by my previous one which only had eight. Also, because it's that short, I won't be taking any requests for it. I mentioned that to make it feel like it was substantial in its content, I MIGHT have everything I do for it be done as a comic. Honestly, though, I don't know how likely that is at this stage. I might have to walk back on that. If I end up doing another block after it, though, I'll definitely make up for the lack of content by making it my new LONGEST block to date, breaking the prior record of twenty-eight scenes on the one started last year that went through to this year, with a whacking THIRTY scenes. Again, though: that's not something I can guarantee at this point in time, so we'll need to see what happens in the coming month.
      That's all for now. I'll see you at my next Discord hold this Monday, and then... then we'll see what else is in store. Catch you then.
