The Blog That Crawls (out of my to-do list)

Welcome to my blog! My New Year's resolution was to finally get this thing started, so...let's do this.

I run a more-or-less weekly game of Lamentations of the Flame Princess set in my version of the setting of Bungie's Myth series of computer games. I call this campaign "Lamentations of the Fallen Lords," and I have some pretty weird house rules (many of which are probably broken or otherwise ridiculous) which I'm sure I'll talk about on this blog.

I've been a D&D fan for most of my life. I originally got into it through 3rd Edition/D&D 3.5, but I've gotten into older editions, the OSR, and retroclones over the course of the last year or two. LotFP is my favorite non-TSR/WotC take on D&D, and my favorite tabletop game in general right now, but I'm open to just about anything in this regard. I'm also greatly interested in other tabletop RPGs, especially Call of Cthulhu, and I would be interested in learning more about board games and tabletop war games and similar hobbies.

There are four main things I want to talk about on this blog:
1. My LotFP campaign - Actual play reports and such. A lot of pretty funny or otherwise interesting things have already happened in our games, and I'm sure there will be plenty more. Writing about Lamentations of the Fallen Lords should also help me keep my memory of past events fresh.
2. My thoughts on the LotFP product line - Reviews, opinions on the rules and implied setting, thoughts about the community, observations, and probably a lot of stupid jokes.
3. Homebrew material - Ideas that might be useful, house rules, random tables, inspirational material, adventures, adventure hooks, monsters, magic items, and custom stuff in general. Maybe even some fiction if I think it might be useful or relevant.
4. My thoughts on D&D and RPGs/games in general - AKA pretty much whatever else I want to talk about, although I'll try not to go too far afield and stick to "games," at least.

So that's it for the dry introduction. Onward to glory!


  1. Awesome sauce.

    [ an aside, I can't help reading your blog title and humming that "Shake It Out" song. Not sure if that was intentional...]

    ; )
