Getting Back Into the Groove
I had big plans for filling this blog with a wide variety of posts this year. Obviously, that has yet to happen so far. Real life reared its' ugly head and I got sidetracked. First, we moved and the unlimited high-speed internet that we've had for the last 3 years and were assured would be available in our new location WAS NOT available after all. We have Internet and it's plenty fast but it's restricted. Second, I'm on the executive board of the local UAW 5010 and things have gotten pretty time-consuming in the last 6 months; it's required a lot of extra work but things are looking up in our plant now. Third, my wife had a cancer scare that I'm glad to say she made it out in the clear. I picked up a bunch of the slack around here with the kids, chores, and other duties while she was going through tests and getting everything in control. She'll be going to a hematologist and will be on some supplements for a while but she doesn't have cancer.
I will ease back into posting sometime soon but it will probably just be once or twice a week from this point on. If Jamie Hardy would like to contribute more posts in the future then I would definitely be up for that. I asked him for some guest posts and then all of this real life stuff accumulated and I took an unscheduled break on the blog. I appreciate him keeping some new content going here and hope he wants to contribute in the future. Thanks, Jamie!
A few posts to watch for in the future include:
1. More resources and ideas for SteamCraft.
2. Familiar rules for Swords & Wizardry.
3. Incorporating Arneson's old D&D house rules into a retroclone.
4. More on my campaign world.
5. Updating some old ideas.
