Nothing To Say

I confess that I've hit something of a dry spell of stuff to write about related to gaming. This is probably because I am not doing any lately. I want to get a solo GURPS Voodoo-based (but with 4E rules) thing going using Mythic Game Master Emulator, but I am balking at the logistics involved. I have a couple of electronic tools that should help, but I am seriously a Luddite when it comes to roleplaying games. If it isn't on paper, I have a hard time using it.

I am thinking about running a MegaTraveller game using my own setting. But I am also still interested in running a D&D-type game (maybe AD&D). I have a bunch of stuff that I've written toward the latter, but it isn't ready for prime time yet. This is something that I should avoid, though. I should just run it, and let the design work be done at the table. (This is me talking myself into it.)

I'm still writing something for the Obscure Games blog fest, or carnival, or whatever it's called. I'm going to write up some of my suggested changes for Fantasy Wargaming, after all. Wait, I have less than a week to go on that? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Also, I wasted my 200th post on this?

Ray Harryhausen, 29 June 1920 -- 7 May 2013

I wanted to do something nice for today's Ray Harryhausen Appreciation Day, but I couldn't think of anything. My creative juices just don't seem to be flowing at the moment. Maybe it's the heat.

That said, Ray Harryhausen is a man to whom we all, especially gamers, owe a great debt of gratitude. He will be missed.

Another Appreciation Day!

Over at Mesmerized By Sirens, Catacomb librarian is sponsoring an Obscure Fantasy Games Appreciation Day on May 30, dedicated to fantasy games from 1975-1989 that aren't D&D. He plans to make it an annual thing, too, so that's pretty awesome. I will be participating, of course. Hopefully, I'll come up with something different than just another entry into my Obscure Games series!

Maybe I'll write up some of my suggested alterations for Fantasy Wargaming. Or maybe I'll write up a location for Lords of Creation (I dunno, is fantasy plus science fantasy plus crossing genres "fantasy"? I'll have to ask). Perhaps I'll do something else. We'll see!
