|It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.|
I am no longer mostly dead and am mostly alive. While I still have some obstacles to overcome, I feel a bit better and am able to rejoin my friends on GooglePlus and other places on the Net (as well as in r/l) for gaming and game talk once again :)
Today was the first day I hit G+ in earnest since May. I was pleased to chat with a few of the peeps after listening in to Michael Moscrip's Castle Nicodemus session. As Brother Damien, whom I used to run in Nicodemus, is retired as an NPC in my own setting, I need to create another character to run. I will also use the same character for Evan Elkins' Nightwick Abbey.
Brother Damien was built for FLAILSNAILS games using the Lamentations of the Flame Princess ruleset. I am considering that again, but since I am still unsure as to what kind of character I want to run, I will leave the decision to later as to which flavor of Original system I will eventually settle on. Swords & Wizardry and "real" OD&D are certainly in the race.
As I get back into the swing, I will start playing games again and ease back in GM'ing as soon as I feel up to it. I will return to blogging here and until I get more posts going (which should be almost immediately!) I remind people that besides the archive posts here at the Aeternal Realm of Sylvaeon, my old blog, RETRORPG still exists for you enjoyment :)
