Happy New Year Everyone!
2018 is off to a promising start on my end, with my eyes set on several of Modiphius’ 2d20 games starting with Conan, and quite possibly Star Trek Adventures and the upcoming John Carter of Mars RPGs on my plate this year. Add that to a new edition of L5R and I’m a pretty happy gamer right now.
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the way things are going. With a lot of attention going towards Fate and PbtA games I’m glad to still be able to retain my corner of the gaming space with my medium to high crunch games with sophisticated, large time investment settings.
There was a time last year when I thought that switching to lighter systems would be a good thing for someone with my workload and stress levels, but it was in the midst of studying them that I realized that it wasn’t working for me. Nothing wrong about them, to be fair, but it was just not my flavor.
Learning about and exploring the spaces of a well defined setting is one of those sources of fun that I didn’t know I drew pleasure from, and probably explains why I delighted in games like L5R.
This year I’m hoping to be able to put more time and effort into the blog and get back into the thick of things with reviews, Let’s Study series and maybe some GMing tips again.
