(scratches chin) Hmmmm......

I've been thinking where to take Farsight Games and one option was to open up a fully-fledged shop, with premises, window displays, rent costs and everything. I'd open it in my city of residence because we're pretty central for the towns around us (all buses come through here) and we're pretty easy to find off the motorways. I reckon we'd service the local gamers quite well - the more I looked into a roleplaying club the more came out of the woodwork. Not only that, I was in a gaming store (which is, by the way, more than an hours journey away from where I live) last Saturday and there were two 10/11 year old kids with their dad getting excited over 'Pathfinder' ('Dad! Dad! This looks better than the 2nd Edition we're doing!'). This kind of made me smile because it was nice to see the pre-teen generation getting excited about RPGs and it gave me hope for the future. There will always be people with overactive imaginations...

I've even had a look at a business plan and considered some properties online. I think it's doable. It's what my area might need to help revitalise the gaming hobby, not just RPGs but wargames, boardgaems and card games, too. My city has never had a dedicated gaming shop of any description so perhaps because of that I might have a whole slew of new blood to entice.

Who knows. It's all just daydreaming at the moment.
