Getting started

15 11 2008

Recently I’ve been a tad naughty regarding my idea of finishing the Rules Cyclopedia. I have not abandoned the project but I’ve also stayed away from actually reading the book. I believe that this stems from a lack of precision in my objective in doing so. In particular since my current role-playing situation is pretty much devoided of… well role-playing, I believe I have this subconscious little feeling that even if I do end up reading the bloody bastard (although heck of a book) I will have no person to play it with.

Rules Cyclopedia

4 11 2008

After a bit of a dry spell I’ve decided to dig into this vintage gaming piece of roleplaying. Introduced first to the old AD&D book by my new (on-line) roleplaying group, I started to get interested in the old D&D books. The sticking point… they’re fun to read!

Back to Business

14 08 2008

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been absent for the last couple of days. This has been due to some rather nasty string of midterms (? I’m not even sure what you call them, suffice to say that I’m talking about the final exam in a class) that had me going head over heels… but in a bad way. In any case, having achieved a 75% rate of success (sadly I had to skip one and leave it for December) I can finally say I’m back in business.

Of course that this would mean something if I had actually told you that I was going to be away for a few days but, of course, I didn’t. The good thing is that this whole shebang has been a wonderful learning experience, and I’ve gained much from it. As far as you are concerned, I promise next time you will be dutifuly noticed.

The second piece of news is that my PC has gone completely nuts. Vista decided that my activation code was invalid and now has gracefully locked me out of my system. And seeing that there is no actual tech support where I live I’ll be doing a re-install in the next few days, which might (but I hope not) cause some delays in the posting.

That’s all for now, let’s get back to business!
