Exciting Arrivals & Tabletop Map Fun

So on the 22nd of February 2011 at 12:51 p.m. local time (23:51 21 February UTC) we all had a life changing earthquake registered 6.3 on the Richter scale. The city is still in ruins, although a lot of rebuild has been made its a long process.

Below is a link to the wiki article


Since then its been a fairly glum day for a lot of us, however this year it changed with the arrival of my grand-daughter,  Ellodie.  I’ve yet to meet her in person but the photo’s are adorable and my son & daughter to be are settling in nicely to the role of dad and mum.

It now will be a lot happier 22nd of Feb around here, although the events will not be forgotten, they are for us, eclipsed by the happiness.

The week itself was consumed with life events, above and others but I did manage to make a tabletop rpg map for a new game I’m starting to run on Wednesday nights. I also picked up a pure red and cobalt blue paint that should increase my ability to make purple (due to the hues in my other red all I get is brown)

    Congratulations to your family 🙂 That sure IS a lovely name. My husband plays Pathfinder (if you heard of that) – I bet he’ll love such a map! Well made 🙂
