So, I am starting a new job as of today. I hope to keep updating this thing at least once a week. I have a few things to post on, AND I think I have an idea for the start of a Starfinder game, maybe for over the holidays.
I promise not to do this too often, but I currently have some stuff posted for sale on my eBay store, including a copy of the classic Call of Cthulhu campaign, Beyond the Mountains of Madness.
So, I am throwing around some ideas for upcoming posts, seeing as how I’m not currently running anything.
- Get back to more coverage of Starfinder… how it differs from Pathfinder, media inspiration, and maybe some example characters.
- Short reviews for games that I have acquired recently. The short list of these at the moment would be: Mighty Protectors: Villains & Vigilantes 3.0, the current Conan RPG, Mercenary Planet, the Schlock Mercenary RPG, Blue Rose (AGE), 7th Sea 2nd, and Coriolis.
- One idea I had long ago was to write up a character for every RPG I know. That’s obviously a long term project and would likely require that I find a way to host a wiki, or find a wiki service.
- Then there’s the game ideas I have, but some of that would result in giving away spoilers for my potential players.
- Some sort of Tabletop tool review. Last year at Dundracon, Ken Hite expressed the opinion that we’re sort of living in a new golden age of RPGs. That the cost barrier to entry has dropped low enough that we’re seeing all sorts of new and different things. It occurred to me that the same could be said of tools for tabletop gaming as well. Software, etc. I wish I had the bonafides to lead a seminar at Dundracon on this.
So far I have only seen comments from two people, so I’m not entirely sure what my audience is. Yes, I know I need to find a way to promote this more so that the audience issue is no longer true. That said, what, if anything is of interest?
Should I use the ‘Read More’ tag for longer posts?
So, I’ve decided to get off my ass and get some of my thoughts regarding tabletop gaming (and some related interests of mine) down in some form other than gray matter. Gray matter is great, but difficult to distribute to others in an accessible format. If you’re reading this, you either got really lucky entering a URL or you’re someone I’ve given this link to. Eventually, some time after this Memorial Day weekend most likely, I will open this up to the world. Until then, and likely afterwards, feedback is most welcome.
