Hello readers. If there are any of you out there. I know my last blog post got some traffic due to my Slumbering Tsar conversion project. And YES, it's been a year since I last posted. I hate being one of those folks that writes plenty for a month or two and then dies off, but alas I am/was.
So what have I been up to? Well I found a wonderful lady to be my girlfriend, moved to a new place, dealt with some career stuff (good stuff), and tried to keep a regular RPG group going (to little success).
The Slumbering Tsar project ground to a halt. However I've been noticing some interest on the Google+ communities and the FGG forums for the conversion. I may try to give it another go, complete what I started. I had a hard drive corruption awhile back and lost a lot of my notes and work from before. I still fortunately had part 1 saved to google docs. We will see what happens in the coming weeks.
Gaming wise, I ran a group for awhile. We did Swords & Wizardry for bit, ran +Matt Finch's Grimmsgate for a bit, but due to player attendance problems things sort of fell apart. I was able to run a great session of White Plume Mountain and I have to say I really enjoyed it. May need to make separate post about that day.
And even more recently I had revived my group to play +Kevin Crawford's awesome Stars Without Number game using his Hydra Sector as the setting. We played two sessions, and my move caused the gaming to halt and now I'm in a gridlock. I am pretty burned out on DMing. Even though I haven't actually done much of it over the past year, I miss being a player. I've been the DM for so long I have forgotten what it is like to play. Whenever I really want to play RPGs, it's always up to me to get the group together. I have discussed with a consistent player of mine the possibility of him DMing a game, and I offered to trade off DM duties from week to week. He is still thinking about it. Lately I've been very interested in playing or running Adventurer Conqueror King and I have the books for it. I imagine my friend would run Swords & Wizardry though, unless convinced otherwise. In order to prepare for those games I may be spending some time creating a new sandbox compatible with ACKS's systems. Would need to balance that against the Slumbering Tsar conversion.
Anyway, thanks for reading. Here's to hoping I get off my ass and starting working on stuff again. Would be good to see the Frog God Games folks at PaizoCon and let them know I got a reason for more people to buy Slumbering Tsar.
