On Standards and Practices

The funny thing about writing a blog that nobody is reading is that, well, you're writing a blog that nobody is reading. In case somebody does read this blog, though, they should have some idea of what they're getting themselves into. So ...

I am not going to discuss politics or real-world religion. Not at all. I've had my share of bad experiences in this arena, and I, for one, would like the world of hobbies to be a no-pundit zone.

I am not going to discuss blog dramas within the Old School Renaissance. Just not interested.

I am going to be light on theory, and heavy on practice. I've been running a game for many years now (unfortunately on hiatus) and have, like most Refs, accumulated tons of content. That content is what I'm going to highlight on this blog. We're talking new monsters, a few new classes, some notions on rules and some of the encounters that dot my sandbox setting.

Although I've played Moldvay D&D (what I cut my teeth on in 6th grade), AD&D in all its editions except the 4th, and Castles & Crusades, my system currently my favorite is Swords & Wizardry. That's the system that will lie behind my flowery prose. I prefer it, because it allows for a minimum of mechanical intrusion.

So, that's the plan. Let's get to the (hopefully) good stuff.


  1. Oh, we are watching. Just quietly.
    Best of luck with the blog!

  2. Watching and wanting to follow. I'll pop you on my blogroll anyway...

  3. Thank you so much for the friendly response! I have put the follower gadget on the blog, and hope to soon collect a veritable legion.
