Back From The Dead

It's been almost a year since I began this role-playing blog, and I've added nothing to it beyond the original two posts. The reason for this is that my interests tend to shift back and forth from role-playing games to theology/philosophy in long cycles. I began this blog at the end of one cycle, but now I'm back to talk about some games.

My three favorite games right now are old-school D&D (and it's clones Swords & Wizardry and Labyrinth Lord), Savage Worlds, and Barbarians of Lemuria (including the fantastic post-apocalyptic version, Barbarians of the Aftermath). Unfortunately, I haven't played anything in about a year (and even then it was very short lived), but I'm trying to get a new group together to play some Barbarians of the Aftermath.

Strangely enough I'm also working on a retro-clone of Fantasy Wargaming by Bruce Galloway. Why? Because that book grabbed my imagination when I first bought it in the 80s, and it still makes me want to do something with it.

Finally, I'd just like to say that blogger elf23 over at The City of Iron has some excellent D&D-by-way-of-Savage-Worlds stuff that you should check out. Two great tastes that taste great together...


  1. Thanks for the link to The City Of Iron.

    Looks like an interesting blog!

  2. Not yet it isn't, but hopefully it soon will be ;^)

  3. Oh wait, you meant the City of Iron being interesting...(duh!) :(
