I started a new campaign and decided to create a blog to post session notes and house rules for my players, as well as essays on my gaming philosophy so they'd have some idea where I was coming from and why I do things the way I do.
When I first set up the blog, I didn't intend it for public viewing, but I went ahead and allowed unrestricted access because, although I didn't think anyone but a player in my campaign would be remotely interested in my blathering, if anyone wanted to read my posts they were welcome.
Somehow or other I've managed to attracted 81 followers over the past year and, ironically, only one of these actually plays with me. So, I've missed my target audience, but inadvertently found another. Even more surprising is that after one year and more than 140 posts, I'm still here and blathering.
That campaign I started last April is still in progress, although we've put it on temporary hold to take a break from dungeon delving and, instead, spend our Sunday evenings engaging in spirited table-top miniatures battles. The consequence of this is that I no longer have a steady source of inspiration for blog posts. So, hopefully, we will soon be back in the dungeon and I can continue my scheduled broadcast.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read, and most especially to post comments. Getting to know you all has been the most rewarding part of blogging. Here's to another year.
Welcome Back to the Labyrinth
"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."
"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."
"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"
"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"
