It's Worse Than Writers Block!

Somedays, I just can't decide what I want to write about.  I may read someone else's blog, and think, "What a great idea!", and I will want to explore their ideas further.  I've also been wanting to give my perspective on the OSR and gaming in general, since I have decided to return to this great hobby.  Then there are the campaign ideas I have, the house rules I'm contemplating, and well, you get the idea. 

If it was writers block there are tricks to get around that, but when you have TOO much to write about what do you?  Prioritize I guess.  Sometimes I think that the bloggers that follow a very specific theme have the right idea, and I enjoy them, but I also like the freedom of being able to cover what topics I want to cover, even if it's only remotely connected to gaming.

Oh before I forget again, I received my stuff from ze bulette, blogger of Dungeon and Digressions , for being the 100th follower.  I received a nice hard-back copy of Fantasy Wargaming, ( which actually replaces my copy that I lost in one of my "Great Cataclysms" ), some Pig-faced Orcs from Otherworld Miniatures, and a bonus!  A copy of christians, ( of Destination Unknown fame, and video blogger extraordinaire ), fan supplement for World of Darkness, Faces in the Crowd, Volume 1.  Now I don't play WoD, but after reading it a bit, I know I can plug these characters into a modern day campaign using just about any core rules.  This 'zine has some very interesting character descriptions, and the stat block will help if you want to convert them to another rule set.  I don't know if he has any left, but if he does, and you like WoD, you should get a copy, and no, you can't have mine. Woot!  Great stuff!
