Yes. Yes, it does. I remember the first time my
D&D character walked upon the Dark Sun sands of Athas. The first time
a character licked blood from an evil blade. The first time my Half-Orc
rogue shot an arrow through that NPC’s throat as a sneak attack, killing him
outright… even though he was supposed to tell us where to go and what we were
supposed to do that night. Aged gamers, like myself, are far from
virgins; however, the spray of gore still feels fresh, not to mention wet, upon
To go with my renewed lust for pen and paper tabletop roleplaying
games, I have a recently created youtube channel and, now, a new blog.
This one. During the last couple weeks, I was thinking of creating
a new website to hold all my ideas and passionate musings on setting, character
creation, the sword & sorcery genre, “official” vs. home-brewed rules, as
well as, the activity of roleplaying itself – what actually happens when we sit
around a table with friends, collectively imagining ourselves as different
people existing in a world not our own.
As luck would have it, a poker friend of mine, Brent West,
discovered this Empower Network thing. He blogged about poker. It
looked like something I might be interested in, so I jumped in with flashing
blades and a cold, dark fury in my eyes. Here I am. This is my new
blog. I’m paying for it right now, but soon… it will be paying for me.
Gah! Damn you, Empower Network, internet pyramid schemes, and my own foolishness! Damn you all to Hell!!! Continuing on...
So, keep coming back to see my daily posts on all things RPG.
Reviews, rumors, and dread ruminations! I’m mainly focused on old
school fantasy D&D type stuff right now because it’s what I’m currently
running on Saturday nights… Dungeon Crawl Classics, AD&D, and everything
related. However, I love other games from my nostalgia tinged
youth like Vampire, Paranoia, Call of Cthulhu, and Star Wars (especially West
End Games’ d6). I’ll get to play, run, and write about those, too, I’m
sure. All in good time.
