Well were back from Halifax. Was a good but long travel trip. The baby made a lot of the vacation hard since he was in a very fuss filled mood. Overall it was good and thats what counts. Even got a special preview visit of Cliff which was awesome. And ironically we gave him a tour of Halifax lol
Halifax got a lot of ideas going about career and the future. So I’m now actively looking at changing jobs. There is just no consistent future where I am right now. And I don’t really see IT as being my long term goal. This is why I am now working with Marie on opening an RPG / Game store like Levalet…just elsewhere. Now thats like woah but you know what, it was a dream then and it makes you happy. Thing is these days we compromise our dreams for wealth and the mundane.
So right now it’s flipping emails off to publishers and get the low down. We would setup an online store first as Marie needs to finish school and before a physical shop takes place we need to find a place somewhere (NOT QUEBEC!) that it will work well. Now I say not Quebec in huge caps because this place is just a drag. After Oshawa and Halifax and Newfoundland we have discovered quite easily that QC is the biggest collective group of assholes on this planet.
The idea in general is to have something for everyone game wise with a focus on RPG. Basically Levalet but lets make it better. Competitive Canadian prices and a reason to come back. So right now it’s the logistics of it all. Now were not sure about what name to put it under. I was thinking maybe the The RPG Hub but that would be more a group decision since it’s mainly aimed at being a blog and hotspot for reviews, Twitters, etc. Alternatively I was thinking of Rocket Wagon Games or Odin’s Beard lol I could see lot’s of fun stuff being had by all. Anyways, this is all in the works.
So guys, what is your ideal game store? What do other places don’t have that you would like to see?
