What are the Gigantic Melancholies?

Hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.
— Robert E. Howard, The Phoenix and The Sword

And there lies the origin story of the category's title.

"Why are there no posts?", you ask.

Well, you may never know. Or you may be surprised.

The category is an iTunes RSS feed of session "raws," currently a mostly unedited feed of D&D sessions for my personal use. "Mostly unedited" because I have taken the barest amount of effort to trim table chatter from the beginning that might be personal or work related.

Initially, this category would host a podcast "review" of over 100 sessions of a WFRP campaign. It got started, but fizzled. Those session raws are safely ensconced in a cloud so maybe. One day. Currently, I'm using it to publish my raws for editing. It's a bit of a hack to leverage my "pod catcher's" playback tools, e.g., 2x playback, when taking time notes for editing.

I'm currently filtering those items from the blog via the back-end, but the template is "category aware" and still displaying it on the front-end. This can be corrected of course, and if it were to disappear, you know it has been.

Watch that space? Who knows what may suddenly begin appearing... or disappearing.
