no, i haven't abandoned the blog. i was away on vacation last week with no internet - hence the lack of updates. i was itching to write a little about my last session before going away but i simply didn't have the time. anyway, here's what i'll be touching on for the next few posts:
LACUNA: right before i went away i ran some of my friends through a session of the LACUNA RPG and it was awesome. if you don't know what that is, you can check it out here. highly recommended game!
COSMIC PATROL: we JUST played a session of this game a few hours ago and it was a lot of fun! i picked up the quick start rules on free rpg day and was so impressed i ordered the book (as did my friend dan). you can check that out here. it's like a mixture of FIASCO and flash gordon/buck rogers.
the COMPLETE B/X ADVENTURER: i had ordered this book right before i went away on vaca and it was waiting for me when i got home. from what i've read so far it's great! lots of fun and useful stuff that really adds to B/X without being too complicated. all the new spellcasting classes seem great; the EXCEPTIONAL TRAITS are very similar (yet cooler and better) to some stuff we had houseruled into the game; and the 100 FINE REASONS CHARACTERS TRAVEL TOGETHER is a great character building tool (we've been using that chart for a while now). head here and buy one of these if you like B/X D&D and/or LABYRINTH LORD.
more to come in the next few days.
