GEORGIAN MAPS OF LONDON

Since writing my Appendix N post discussing a book I’ve been reading concerning the Georgian era (you can read the post here), I’ve also been searching for maps and other interesting things related to the same era on the internet and thought I’d highlight a couple of the more interesting websites that I’ve stumbled across:

A Visitor’s Guide to Georgian England

Okay, it’s been a fair while since I’ve released any non-review Youtube videos, but recently helping my friend Fozz do some vlogging in Coventry has inspired me to pick up my (admittedly cheap) video camera and give it a go again.

It seems like today is my day for posting about things faded or disappearing (see my previous post on deleting my Google+ account). If you’ve been keeping up with the various games and actual-plays that I run you may have noticed that there was no session video for my Rose of Westhaven game last week.

This is unfortunately because the game has currently gone on hiatus due to some unexpected scheduling issues with the group, rather than continue the game and try to re-cast I have made the decision to put the game on pause for the moment (although I may revisit it in the future at some point, who knows?)
