So yeah, umm…

I’ve let this thing get very dusty. I got busy, then dad got very sick, then I got laid off right before COVID. Oh, and then we had to move in the middle of that. You’d think that being laid off during the pandemic would have been a great time to come back to this…

You’d think…

Anyhow, I’ve started dusting off the site and discovered that I was many, many versions of WordPress and PHP behind current. That’s all fixed at least.

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to try to get back to making characters for my owned RPGs again… and hopefully make some non-gaming posts as well.

I’m toying with the idea of a patreon, but the sole goal of that would be to underwrite the hosting costs. I have no illusions of making money at this.

So, I’m back.

A bit remiss

I’m a couple of weeks behind on updates due to a combination of life events and the holidays. I hope to address this in the next couple of days. Of course, this morning I actually get a train car with a table, and don’t have my books with me to finish up a character for High Fantasy.

I’ve had a couple of Kickstarters deliver in the last couple of weeks, so I think I will take a break from old school games for a bit and make characters for some of these new arrivals. So, in the next couple of updates I hope to do entries for Cavaliers of Mars, SIGMATA, and possibly Ebonclad.

My holiday break is also approaching. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get enough people that I can run one or more one-shots, or possibly a game of Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Additionally, it would be nice to maybe get my Starfinder game going again.

Minor edits…

I am now enrolled in the DriveThruRPG.com affiliates program. You’ll see two RSS feeds listing top sellers and new products. I’ll mostly be using this to link to PDFs of the games I’m posting characters for.

Starting new job

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.

Ideas for Upcoming Posts

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?
