All of my gaming-related reading is centered around chess at the moment. I tend to bounce from hobby obsession to hobby obsession. After 12 years of RPGing, I felt the need to push some wood again. I'm having a hell of a time. I'm sure an RPG time out will be good for me and resolve the burn-out I've been struggling with. I'm still running a C&C PBP and will be at Gary Con next March, so I'm not out of gaming completely.


Dragonchess, then?

Let's play!

You gotta a board?

:P

Considering opening the Dungeonesque game I bought. Not sure. Probably won't play it.

Golden Heroes, Labyrinth Lord (my brother-in-law wants to introduce my nephews to roleplaying games) and the rules to the Villains & Vigilantes Card game.

How to write gaming modules that don't suck and associated material. Some good stuff in it.

Currently, B/X modules. Started playing Labyrinth Lord with my nephews, and I'm trying to plan a campaign for them using OD&D, AD&D, etc. modules. Right now, they are playing B1. Thinking about following that with B2, then B3 (The original version). After that, I hope to run the Slavers series. Unsure what to do after that, except that Barrier Peaks is mandatory.

You could add in strong links to the Underdark and the Slavers, so if the party really wants to put a stop to slaving, they could go into the Underdark and follow the slave trade all the way to Lolth and her Demonweb Pits. Skips G1 to 3, but the latter part is what people rarely play though in comparison.

Reading and re reading Mongoose Traveller 2E. Finally get to PLAY Traveller for the first time in what seems like forever. Already created a competent Navy Pilot. Even survived SIX Terms! Yes, SIX terms! Didn't fail either one of my aging checks either! Doing some more character creation tonight (Wednesday night). I know one is planning on creating a Scientist. Hopefully he lasts a long time before dying or getting booted out due to injury, etc... Not sure what the other is thinking of. Anyways, we have 4 players so far, with more possible.

I'm all over The Dungeons of Aufstrag ~ some of the best stuff ever from TLG!!

Also, re-reading Winter Runes (just 'cause of the excellent maps included to augment the fabulousness of the module!!)

8-)

Currently splitting my game-reading time between old issues of the Traveller 'zine Journal of the Travellers Aid Society (currently at issue 6), Dragon magazine (currently at 120), and re-reading some Castles & Crusades for ep 7 of the SFH podcast. I won't let my co-hosts kick it down the road any further, damn it! :)

Nonfiction I'm reading the Idea of Greater Britain; 1860-1900 by Duncan Bell. Nifty stuff about the concept of a "world British state" many ihn the UK dreamed about before WWI. Lots of ideas for organizations and heroic doctrines for Victorious. :)

Man I am all over the place with this one. Gaming ADHD I suppose. I have been re-reading many of my C&C adventures and Airhde stuff, but I have also been reading many of the variants of d100 gaming, like Mythras\Legend\Runequest stuff. For adventure writing, I have been really happy with the Magical Medieval Society by Expeditious Retreat Press. For those that have never read it, it is a truncated medieval history book that really paints a picture of life in the middle ages and is a fantastic resource if you want your fiction or adventures to have that middle ages feel.

Then you will like their Silk Road book as well.

Currently reading all my Victorious material for the game I have finally started running, plus reading Mongoose Travellers 2E High Guard book for a Trav game I am in. Also keeping up on rules minutiae for two other games I am in, one Call of Cthulhu, the other is Legend of the 5 Rings 4E.

I was able to pick up several console games from my "to buy" list and I am slowly going through them as virtually all of them were complete, with box and manual, so that made me happy... can replace the ones that I had partials for, mostly NES cartridges.

I just recently found out there are two stores here in St Louis that cater to "Old School Console Gaming"...

Only been to St Louis once, when my grandfather died, but maybe if I'm ever around that way I can look. Unless they deal online or you're willing to do shopping for me... ;)

But, cool. I wish I had more game stores around, as is, I have to travel at leas 2 hours to get to anything. Not bad but does cut down on frequency. Which is good. For the wallet.

Another flash sale, another purchase (Mystical Companions). How do the Trolls expect me to put my daughter through college if they keep doing this?! ;)

They are listed online, but I did not look for a website. Google them for this area, contact them via phone or whatever is available, and if they have something you like, I can go pick it up for you and mail it if they won't offer to mail it to you. I think they were both within 20 minutes of my house.

Yeah, I picked up the AA Powers book and additional copies of the Victorious supplements.

Just got the kickstarter PDF for the new single book version of Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. An inspiring book, and adds a lot of new art. The Ian Baggley pictures especially put me in the mood for a swords and sorcery game.

FrontierSpace Referee's Guide dropped last night so looking that over.

Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea (Second Edition) arrived. Huge book. Has two cloth bookmarks, and might have benefited from two more. Each volume in the giant book has its own Table of Contents, and the volumes are a little hard to find (but the first page of each is in color, which helps.) The somewhat involved combat sequence has been broken down in a way that makes it a little easier to understand. Lots of new art and a nice map.
