Well, I certainly didn't expect my New Year to start off with a gaming bang, but that's precisely what happened. Here are a few of the highlights and happenings from January:
-Our Pathfinder game went on hiatus. This game had marked the first time I had been a full-time player in several years. I'm now back behind the screen for 1867, but I was happy to have the break. I wouldn't be wild about GMing Pathfinder these days, but I'll happily play it anytime.
-Wizards of the Coast came to their senses and released their pdfs for sale online once more!
-I printed and cut out roughly 250 Disposable Heroes for my 1867 campaign. Miraculously, this didn't result in carpal tunnel syndrome. I need to have a cut-out party with my gaming group next time!
-I ran and reviewed BareBones Fantasy, which has been rocking my socks off to no end.
-I discovered a stash of Knights of the Dinner Table back issues, and have been happily reliving some of the greatest (mis)adventures of Muncie's finest gamers.
-My daughter remembered to check for traps before opening a dungeon door for the first time ever.
-My gaming group agreed they still wanted to play on Super Bowl Sunday, which might be the best vote of confidence I have ever received as a Game Master. Of course, I deeply suspect it has something to do with my wife's wassail and buffalo chicken dip...
That's a pretty great month of gaming action and interest. If February can keep pace, I'll feel very lucky indeed.
How was your January in terms of RPG news, play, and excitement?
