A year in review 2018

This has been an odd year for me. It started off with being laid off. Then spending the next several months looking for new work. Which I did find, and then most of the rest of the year was learning as much as I could about the new job and working. All of which cut deeply into my writing and painting time. I hope that the new year goes much more smoothly and I can get back into a regular schedule of writing and painting.

Systems that inspire me

So this is as much my hobby as playing them is, and there are certain games that continue to inspire me and change the way I think about gaming. These are the systems that I Continue reading “Systems that inspire me”

Systems that caught my eye

I have spent the last several months away from gaming, but reading a variety of systems ranging from variations on the Apocalypse World rules set (Dungeon World, Monster of the Week and Urban Shadows), the core Dungeons and Dragons 5th ed. books, Call of Cthulhu 7th ed., various Savage Worlds books (Last Sons, The Flood, Stone and a Hard Place, Fantasy Companion, Super Powers Companion), various books from the old Wraith system, Feng Shui 2 and several others that I can’t remember at this time.
