-Let our flight to New York be soothing and quiet and give me time to finish reading both my Jack Vance book and my Donald Barthelme book.
-Let my readers be apprised that even such highbrow and literary-establishment semi-acceptable reading as Donald Barthelme contains RPGable ideas such as "We have rots, blights and rusts capable of attacking his alphabet."
-Let my pal in NYC have the time and inclination to run his Oriental Adventures game, and let it be like this Takato Yamamoto drawing:
(but let my guy not be the skull).
-Let character generation, taking care of John's kid, and all such non-oni-killing-related business not take too terribly long so we have lots of time to play.
-Let someone produce or let there already be--despite the technical difficulties involved due to the number of undercuts required and the number of pieces it needs to be cast in--an awesome miniature of a hydra. Let it be not all simplified like the D&D minis Fen Hydra, let it not look like a bunch of alligators sewn together like the Ral Partha Huge Hydra, and let it not look like a bunch of alligators with beaks sewn together like the Dark Elves War Hydra.
(Oh fuck, wish came true--from Reaper:
....also from Reaper:
...and this thing is a "Hybrid Hydra" for something called Urban War Koralon, but it looks like it'd work perfectly well for anarchist Warhammer 40k...)
-Let Reaper minis relocate their factory next door to my house and have the people who work there decide I'm cool and give me stuff whenever I walk by on my way home from the 7-11.
-Except not the fumes.
-Let someone put together a miniatures database that's nearly comprehensive and contains every mini yet produced. Let the internet realize that, come on, if it can't do that then what is it good for?
-Let Caroline Pierce not hit traffic and arrive on time for the spooky-tower-exploring adventure I plan on running monday night before getting on the plane to New York.
-Let me remember where that adventure left off last time she drove down from Vegas.
-Let there be enough stuff left in that tower to keep them busy for an evening.
-Let me be able to cannibalize the unused stuff in the other dungeon I'm running suimultaneously if there isn't.
-Let my players always advance at a rate precisely tuned to the speed at which I tire of whatever monsters are appropriate to their level.
-Let me one day think of a scene in an adventure awesome enough to justify using the following image as a visual aid:
-Let Mandy finish her Creepy Enchanted Forest soon because all the weird pictures she's been grabbing off the internet to use for it are so cool--especially the Ivan Bilibin ones--that it's making me anxious to play kind of like the way you'd get a game for Christmas and stare at the cover for months until one of your friends decides to play with you.
