Well I looked further into the matter of DnD at my college.
Currently being run are 2 three-hour games of 4e. Neither of them are at times when I can come in without missing practice on my forms routine for an upcoming martial arts tournament that I've recently decided to enter. That sucks.
I've also been considering how much time I can really afford to spare towards running a campaign between studies, tournament training, my novel writing, my participation in LFR, and part-time work. (yeesh full plate) The workload for my classes this semester is going to be more than I had estimated it might be.
The hard reality has a bitter taste.
At most currently, I can (safely) write and run short 1 or 2 hour games on a regular weekly basis instead of the long 6 to 8 hour games I had my hopes on.
If I were a rich person I'd have just enough time to do the long games. Alas I am one of the many who worry about basic financial needs. Ah well.
When I get a certain amount of my work and studies for the term done I may be able to run my desired long games but I've got to make sure my more important priorities are not endangered by my indulgences.
It seems like I won't be able to get long games this Spring. Perhaps not for Summer either. Maybe in the Fall or Winter...
For now it will be build up towards when I begin running long games for my homebrew campaign.
