Ok, ok. I have no idea how I got wrangled into this, but apparently Lauby has some amazing super-persuasion powers because I volunteered and don’t even feel dirty. (Maybe it’s just that I have no shame? I don’t know.) However, this week was full of a lot of really touching and personal stuff, with some great opportunities to enjoy more than just fluffy nonsense.
1) The Realm of Dungeons & Dragons - The Killing Joke
Lauby: I think we can all relate to this. And not just in games either. The sad fact of the matter is that while change is often good, it is also profitable. In any case this is a great post on the subject that brings up a number of sad similarities with the TTG that most of you/us play. Oh! And be sure you click on the link that Doctor Warlock had in the post. Some very good stuff in that as well. 2 for 1, baby!
Lo: Starting off on a serious tone, a pretty cool thought on the environment of games and gaming, from the RPG side of things rather than miniatures. I’ve got a major soft spot for discussing the way the landscape of gaming has changed over the years, and this post has a great perspective.
