Happy New Year 2022!

I am grateful for my readers, and want to say "thank you" for coming back.

In 2022 I have a lot I want to do.

  • Finish Deahtrap Lite: technical issues killed my productivity in December.
  • Finish a silly side project game about American soldiers fighting dinosaurs and Cthulhu cultists in 1976 in Vietnam.
  • Get Midnight Zone complete.
  • Finish my adventure module based on my House of Amber Lanterns planning exercise from 2019
  • Draw often enough to feel confident in illustrating and releasing three DCC RPG modules I have written, but not released: Vikings on a Starry Sea, Grimki's Jewel, and Slither, Witch!
  • Review my backlog of books (most already read and many played;)
    • Swords and Wizardry
    • Castles and Crusades
    • Ryuutama
    • Shadow of the Demon Lord
    • Hyperborrea
    • Machinations of the Space Princess
    • Star Adventurer
    • Goblin Quest
    • Shadowdark
    • The Thot Trilogy for Alpha Blue
    • The Tome of Adventure Design
    • Low Fantasy Gaming: Deluxe Edition
    • Numenéra and my favorite supplements for it.
    • I have Cha'alt: Chartreuse Shadows coming.
  • I also hope to get my hands on and review the Mothership boxed set, Deathbringer and Knave 2e.
  • I wouldn't mind getting my hand on Warhammer Fantasy 4e, Zweihander, & the upcoming TTRPG based on Goblin Slayer, either. 
  • I have some thoughts to share on sex in TTRPGs, and keeping it fun and positive.
  • I plan on doing more discussion and review of planning tools.
  • I might do some short format videos to summarize older reviews.
  • Crawling the Purple Isles is in need of updating, but the next set of adventures got so big, they beg a simpler format.
  • I want to feature some podcasts that I love.
  • I would like to try my had at podcasting again, but maybe something simpler, like a Shadow of the Demon Lord campaign.
  • I have been building two campaign worlds: one for OSE / BECMI D&D and one for Castles and Crusades.  I might share them.
  • The Cyclopedia could stand some extra additions.
  • I hope to do my interviews and guest posts, too.
  • I have been reading a lot of Appendix-N material, and I would love to offer some perspectives. 
  • I want to discuss the impact of Final Fantasy and DragonQuest on TTRPGs,
  • I plan on spending a couple of week's worth of articles on the GLOG.
So, in other words, I still have lots to say, and I am glad you are here to read it. If there is anything you would like to see me cover or discuss, let me know!
