So hello all. For anyone still happening to come to this blog every now and again, I'm sorry to say I've been out of the blogging loop for awhile. I was trying to get into the rhythm of posting once a week but like most bloggers I ended up getting a little too busy.
I hate the thought of being a 10-post wonder, as many blogs end up being. We write a few good posts and then disappear for awhile. My excuse is that my old roommate was moving out, with a new one moving in, some major living arrangement changes, stuff at my job intensifying, and trying to maintain some form of a social life.
Things have settled down enough now I may be able to post every now and again and I hope to do so. The big reason for my triumphant return is Erik Tenkar's Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day. The blog list is growing by the day and I've sent an email to Erik asking to be part of the list. I hope I'm on there, and even if not, I'll be doing a blog post about good ol' S&W. It's my current game of choice and now that I ACTUALLY have a gaming group going (sort of) that's the system we are using.
Tentatively, my topic is going to be 'Why play Swords & Wizardry?' though I think there will probably be a lot of other bloggers doing something similar. I look forward to reading all the reviews, new monsters, opinions, thoughts, etc. on the 17th!
In other news, Frog God Games' shipment of the S&W Complete stuff arrived a while back. Everything is really spiffy and worth a look. The new Monstrosities is excellent, and it's wonderful to have sitting next to my Tome of Horrors Complete.
My OSR gaming bookshelf continues to grow, with a copy of DCC RPG on it's way. I wanted to find a copy of the Gold Foil Limited Edition but all copies at vendors I frequent are sold out. I missed my chance I suppose. I'd like to make a larger post or series of posts int he future featuring all my OSR products and my general thoughts on each of them. Not a true review, but a quick paragraph for each. Might prove useful to a prospective buyer.
Anyway, thanks for reading. See you on the 17th!
