Started writing

The weirdest thing just happened. I just sat down and started writing the synopsis for a module I have been thinking about off and on for a long time. I doubt there will ever be anybody playing this, or me even finishing it, but I must admit it feels nice to use my brain in this way again. The constant sensory assault of modern day life seems to be toned down just a little bit when I can focus on writing. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh yeah, my paladin is now level 7.

What to read now

It’s a little funny. Through out the years I have been meaning to kill this blog. It serves absolutely no purpose at all, and everytime I try to get into the habit of posting regularly ´, well, it just never happens. Lately I have taken to jo repost tweets and Youtube videos, so one could argue that this is just getting ridiculous. Yeah, it is getting kinda stupid. Especially since I decided to pay for a domain name to host the blog on. Seriously? I must be on crack. Speaking of crack, I am considering reading the Dragomlance Chronicles again....

New old project

Ever since I started this blog in 2009, I have wanted to create  list of all the RPG materials I own. I have considered many different approaches, from wikis to an Access database, but I have decided to keep in simple. I have just created a couple of pages where I will document my stuff. There will be no fancy functionality, just a couple of lists. I used Krynnwoman’s list of novels, as my books are packed away. So, thanks for sharing your work

Moving from Blogger to WordPress

Ever since I started blogging about RPGs I have been using Google’s Blogger service. I figured I would never really get into blogging, so I figured that a free and fairly easy solution would be to use Blogger. Blogger has served me pretty well throughout the years, but I have never really grown to love the service as such. The design options are pretty bad, and lately I have noticed that I get a lot of spam, so the time has come to ditch Blogger and move over to my self-hosted WordPress domain. In moving from Blogger I will also...

The end is nigh

I know it sounds pretty gloomy, but it is not meant that way at all. As you probably gathered from my last post, I am putting this blog hiatus, probably forever, but since I have had so much fun writing this thing, I thought I would go through my old stuff and publish it here. Who knows, maybe someone can actually use it for something. Anyway, I posted a piece I started some years ago about thieves guilds, which I intended to use in my Daltigoth campaign. The idea was that the guilds were an important part of the conflicts...

Happy belated New Year

As any reader of this blog, and I know there are next to none, will no doubt have noticed, I have pretty much stopped blogging here. In fact, I have been considering dropping this blog for good, and use the domain for something else. As it is, I can’t really get myself to drop it, so for now it will remain here, and occasionally I will hopefully write a post or two. As we have entered 2011, I feel that it is time to have make a status of the gaming situation for me, so here we go. New Dragonlance...

Long time no see

It has been a while since my last blog post and as always I feel like I should apologize for my lack of activity. However, this time I think I will refrain from that and instead dwell a little at the fact the I have not written anything, even though I promised myself that I would do it. First of all, I have been invited to join a group who plays the board game Dune. I was actually invited by the director of development at my work, so of course I was a little skeptical. It turned out to be...

Nothing new

So, I decided to go ahead and compile all my old Dragonlance writings into one big file, and guess what – it has happened yet. I guess I could try to come up  with all kinds of dumb reasons why I never got beyond the introduction, but I am going to spare myself the indignity.The project is not really dead as I see it, but for me, it is important that I sit write when I feel the urge to do so. Right now I do not. It’s not that I have abandoned Dragonlance, I am actually reading the annotated...

Done for now

Well, I finalized my blog redesign for now. I was looking around for a couple of extra social networks to add, but I decided to stick with Twitter, Picasa and Google Friend Connect. I played around with StumpleUpon, but I could not find any way to syndicate the feed, so I have abandoned the idea for now. I might look in to it at a later point. I am considering a new de.-icio.us account to share various links, but I think I might be able to do that using Twitter. Time will tell. As for some content, I have been...

Blog redesign almost done

As I have talked about on numerous occasions, I have been looking into redesigning my blog. I don’t think it will make much if a difference in terms of how many people read it, but I like the idea of using a customized template, which hopefully gives the blog a more personal feel. There are many templates out there on the Internet, but I decided to use Google own tool for the mew template. The template allows me to easily change colors, backgrounds and all other stuff, and I find that important because change to the template makes the blog...
