Awesome thread on the Troll Lord Games Forum discussing adapting Castles & Crusades to the Middle Earth setting. It started a few years ago, but it keeps coming back….Troll Lord Games :: View topic – C&C Middle Earth. One could use a lot of the material for adapting any game to Middle Earth….

When adding new players to a new gaming group, it can be good, bad, or both. I’ll tell you….we’ve had some rather interesting characters (meaning interesting players actually) over the years. This blogpost by Samuel Van Der Wall seems to touch on a lot of that.

I live…..again. OK folks. I’ve officially arrived at a decision. I’m returning to the “active GM” chair. No more just tinkering with mechanics. I’ll aim my tinkering to a specific game/group. And it won’t be for a planned out, extensive campaign. It will be for a one-shot…just to play. That one-shot may grow into something bigger, but for now I’m aiming for a one-shot game. Details to follow…..but as a teaser, I’m thinking some Atlantean Fantasy goodness is in order.
[As an aside, I really need to trim the number of categories I have…..jeesh.]

And we’re back! I’ve been MIA for a few months really (wow it goes fast). Between work, family, and a general high-level of entropy in my corner of the Universe, gaming just hasn’t been able to fit into my life of late (other than reading on odd blog here or there). That being said, we’ve turned a corner and a little bit of space has opened up…so we’ll snatch it and add some gaming back into the mix.
One of the topics that I read of late (in blog posts by The Ogre Lair Times and Purple Pawn) was the “revelation” by Boston Herald staff writer Laurel J. Sweet that the U of Alabama shooter was a gamer….It seems equally coincidental that she also studied biology, watched TV, and wiped her own ass (sources close to the aledged shooter indicated that her ass-wiping activities dated back to childhood, but declined to be quoted as the investigation is ongoing and they were not authorized to speak with regard to said ass wiping), and voted for Barack Obama……all, subversive activities that obviously led to her murderous rampage. All sarcasm aside, I declare:
Shame on you, Boston Herald! You’ve sunk to tabloid status in my book. Any journalistic organization worth its grit wouldn’t have posted such a sensationalist piece, especially since there have been studies that refute any link to violent crime/suicide and role-playing games….other than to reduce them.
