So far I'm really happy with what I've done here on HDWT. I have 12 followers, and that's 12 more than I thought I would have. This is the 21st post. I think the next milestone should be 50. If I make it to 50, that will be good. I don't have an accurate hit count, because I accidently deleted my original counter, but I think I may have had around 500 hits.
When I first started this blog, I considered writing a mission statement, a statement of purpose, but the more I think about it, it would, or might, limit me in what I want to do with HDWT. However, here's a brief statement of purpose: I want to promote gaming in all it's manifestations, whether it's role-playing, wargaming, or board games, and as a adjunct to that, to encourage and foster creativity, and utilizing it in gaming. Have Dice ~ Dice Will Travel is also a journal of my return to gaming after a long hiatus.
So I have a fairly simple "mission statement", and covers what I want to do with HDWT.
On another subject, I like old school, but I'm not dogmatic about it. I like to think of myself as "cool school". Hah! Maybe that will catch on, I need to define it better. Some of the blogs I've read seem to come from the "cruel school", but hey, to each his own. Okay, enough digressing...
As I said before, I like old school, but I'm not married to it. I haven't played D&D 4E, but I wouldn't be opposed to it. I really doubt I would buy the books, they seem way too expensive to me. I could go buy used copies of 3.5 for less than the price of an 4E D&D book! Oh, and I haven't played 3.5 either, remember? I took a long hiatus from gaming. A looooooooooong hiatus.
I think the last RPG I played was Rolemaster. In fact, I remember what happened to my character. He received a mortal wound, and was gushing blood. He had 10 rounds to live, if I recall correctly. He made some amazing rolls, and took revenge on the beast that was responsible. While I was fighting the beaast, the other players were chatting about how they needed my magic items, and planned on looting me. I wasn't really happy with this, and in the cavern we were in, there was a lava flow. So to thwart their greedy plans I ran and leaped into the lava. The GM laughed, and the other players were, to say the least, ticked off at me. Ah, good times...
It looks like I won't be able to attend the North Texas RPG Con. I had forgotten about a prior commitment, and since it was largely my idea I can't back out. However, I'm still working on attending Texicon, so that's still up in the air.
Okay, enough rambling. Everybody have a great weekend, and hopefully you will get a chance to game, and roll some dice.
