A short and primarily pointless post

I’m back. The net silence is over, and normal service shall be resumed over the coming days and weeks.

Here’s some, all, or none, of what to expect (depending on how the mood takes me):

  • D&D Next Now. Terrible name for an equally terrible idea: adapting an unfinished rules system to Modern Day role-playing. Can it be done? Should it be done? Only time will tell.
  • A new blog category cometh, and it shall be called Tech. Expect posts about Windows 8, computer gaming, Android phones and anything else that takes my fancy. If you only come here for the RPG posts, please let me know if this is a good idea, or if it should be shot down in flames immediately. Your opinion is important, etc.
  • Is that a new RPG Week on the horizon? And what are these strange letters WHFRP? What can it possibly mean?
  • More D&D Next stuff than you can fire an Eldritch Blast at.
  • Pretty (or not so pretty) Renders to break up all those words. There may even be a Tutorial or two (at long last!).
  • … and last but not least, the return of Character du Jour!

Watch, as they say, this space.

  1. Good to see you back in action.

    I’m afraid I’m a real Luddite when it comes to new technology – having no interest in it beyond its surface flashiness – so I’m afraid that sort of article is of no interest to me personally.

    For your D&D Next Now – why not simply D&D Now?

    Always enjoy your renders and your insights into RPGs :-)

    1. Thanks for your feedback as ever, Tim. Much appreciated!

      I’m thinking about doing one tech post per week, mainly to get my thoughts about tech-related stuff out of my system without having the burden of creating/maintaining another blog. Would that be off-putting to you, or an acceptable speed bump in the blog?

      D&D Now may well end up being the final title for my D&D Modern hack. It’s still very much a work in progress :)

      Thanks again!

      1. I can totally understand the need to get “stuff out your system” (I’ve had a few posts like that of late) and I see that as par for the course with blogging.

        I’ll be honest and say I probably won’t read a tech post, but then again knowing your tastes – and where we overlap – there’s more chance I’ll read a tech post on your blog than pretty much anywhere else ;)

        It certainly wouldn’t be off-putting as the majority of your posts would still be game-orientated.

  2. Always happy to see a blog start back up. I wouldn’t mind a Tech article once in a while (it’ll keep me abreast of gadgets I can use for the table).

    Still, me being mostly an OSR grog (Basic and 2E bring my poison of choice), I’ll probably ignore the WHFRP and D&D Next stuff in favor of Old School Goodness.

    All in all, keep up the good work.

  3. Having the odd tech post would be no problem for me. Yeah, I come for the RPG posts, but your writing tends to be a worthwhile read even on tedious subjects. :-) Hmmm, WHFRP, which edition? I’m going back to 2ed using the 1ed setting for an up-coming campaign. Nothing like a tongue-in-cheek grim and perilous fantasy setting to keep things amusing on the gaming front.
