Just Talkin'-

* Poor James Maliszewski of Grognardia fame. He has become so central within the, um, whatever one calls the resurgence of old D&D-type games ;) -community that when he posts a 'think aloud' article, folks far and wide descend upon his blog to engage in all manner of speculation, wandering from the topic, and outright personal attacks (both against other posters as well as James, himself). Whew! 'Can't win for losing' is the term that comes to mind -- yet, I hope it doesn't get to him, because Grognardia (even on the very few times I out-right disagree with him) is very much on a wavelength that resonates with me (plus, he has great artistic taste).
Keep up the good writing, James! :D

* I am recovering from a few days of illness, and feeling the weight of my self-appointed deadline more strongly due to my diminished output.
I think I may be able to finish the 16 pro-adventure locations with their leaders before too late this week, but I really doubt that the Ancient tech, and a gaggle of creatures will be complete before the 1st, but we'll see what happens. Hopefully I can complete the initial Aberrations/Mutations tables and write-ups before Deadline. After that, I've given myself another 30 days to whip-up the Beta .pdf.

* I'll see about posting something useful to you folks later today.



  1. It will never fail to amaze me how many intelligent people waste their time blogging about this.

  2. I hope it will all blow over soon.

  3. See why I have such an innocent blog? What controversy can I kick up? That was quite the storm over there and it has caused ripples throughout the blogosphere. James is a sharp cat and a great writer, and he does defend his view very well. Compared to the rant against the oldschool revolution on therpgsite, James is a very polished writer.

  4. Also, hope you are feeling much better and that the lupey-ness has subsided, or is being lupey better?

  5. Thanks, Bat.

    My fever spiked last night and I couldn't sleep until 6am, but boy-o, did I ever post a lot in the blogosphere yesterday.

    Vague memories of watching Pulp Fiction, or something... ;)

    I am doing much better, but my Pops isn't.
    When it rains, it pours...

  6. I think I figures this out; I've put your blog up on me own - I love your writing!

    Glad to hear you're better, but very sorry about your dad; been there, too...

  7. > swoons! <

    The co-author of Qadardalikoi digs my writing.

    Thank you, Chirine ba Kal.

    Mum just phoned and said that my father is practically wheeling himself out of the hospital, and that they'll return shortly.
