I feel like giving up!

Today I discovered White Wolf’s newest line “Scion: Heroes”, (thanks to matt’s accidental discovery of it).

From the White Wolf’s web page for it:

Find your Destiny

The savage Titans have escaped their eternal prison to wage war with the Gods once more.

Their battles in the Overworld have spilled over to ours.

Armed with abilities and weapons granted by their divine parents, the Scions stand as humanity’s only defense.

Sounds great huh?

I’m not saying White Wolf are evil, don’t get me wrong. It is just that my big RPG project (LH) is based on scarily similar themes. (I’m not accusing White Wolf of stealing my ideas, I’m not paranoid and there is sufficient fundamental differences in my work and what I have seen so far of White Wolf’s). The issue for me is emotive, even if my LH ever does get out there into the wild, it will be compared to it and I, full-time working father, cannot compete with an army of freelance writers, fanboys, artists, editors, etc. and a company that knows how to market. It’s enough to nearly give up the game.

But I won’t. Not yet at least.

What makes it so tempting to quit, back up the files, and focus on other things, is how frustrating my “time management” is these days. It’s hard to get a big enough gap of time to sit down and write. Even when I do, I often have to stop and run off to do something for five minutes right in the middle, breaking the precious flow. But that’s to be expected. With a new baby only two months away… I guess my passion these days is my family. Gaming takes a second place, will always take a second place to that. (Well actually third, our Nintendo Wii is coming in second these days).
