Well, I don't know that a blog deserves such a term as "relaunch", but here were are!
This is Zachary Houghton (Zachary The First or zacharythefirst) on various Gaming Message Boards, and I've decided to bring RPG Blog back up. Why? Well, for one thing, I miss writing about RPGs, and want to start in again. Life has settled down somewhat, and I think I'm ready to get back in the saddle. I had some issues with Typepad, so we're going to be seeing how Blogger treats us.
(Note: I'd have gone with thte straight "rpgblog" address, but we have a squatter).
So, here we'll stay.
Now, the other reason I'm doing this is because I have been elected as a 2008 ENnies Judge, and one of the promises to voters I made is that I would make the entire judging and evaluation process as visible and as open as I could. To that end, I'll be commenting on many of the products that come my way, and hope to hear your thoughts on the same. The more the ENnies are an award that is truly representative of as much of the hobby as possible, and the more folks feel a sense of kinship and ownership in regards to the process, the cooler I think it'll be! Naturally, in the end, my vote remains my own, but if you're able to get me to look at something a different way or perhaps pick up on something I've missed, or if you end up finding out about a product you might otherwise have overlooked that leads to more fun at your gamig table, then I think this will have been a success.
I'll be doing some housecleaning around here for a few days, but, yeah, we're back in business.
