I use my own blog as a sort of soundboard plus a way of disciplining myself to write. Although it's hard not to feel some pressure to cater to an audience, I think of the readership more as a focal point to rally what I am interested in, and if by coincidence lighting strikes a chord with a large crowd then kudos, but don't make it change the real purpose of the blog: to keep myself engaged in the creative process. I think you could manage to dial the Trollish Delver back to an area where you are comfortable; blogs which move away from that personal touch tend to feel a bit "fake" anyway, so I think you'd benefit from it more than anything else to inject more of yourself and your thoughtstream into the process, anyway.
Friends, loyal readers and randomers from Google - I need your advice. If you've been reading this blog from the beginning then a) you're fucking awesome and b) you've seen it go from a small brain dump about Tunnels & Trol...

Very cool. I think a lot of people ended up in RPGs via Gamma World and B/X....those were the right games at the right time for most people.
Well, the weekend derailed my initial plans, but I'll get three up today, I swear!       As I have mentioned in numerous places at various times, I started gaming with Gamma World on Christmas morning, 1981, when I ran ...

I always thought of the cleric as the "exception to the rule." The cleric was that holy man who actually could do miracles, and most priests were just zero level characters, essentially. The split between paladin and cleric for me simply clarified "knights with a holy focus" vs. "priests with a penchant for war." My favorite edition of D&D to handle clerics was 2nd edition, with its great builds on priests of specific mythoi.

I like hobbits but weirdly have never played one as a PC...had plenty of hobbit NPCs over time in my games. I might need to make a hobbit character next time I get to actually be a player.

I hadn't played one for almost 20 years when I discovered the joys of playing Tomman. :)

Always nice to be reminded of how ridiculously draconian TSR was. A nice reminder that today's chant on how "WotC-bro is teh evulz" need to be put in proper perspective....
