Ok, it's time to come clean. I am addicted to creating new crap for RPG's that I will never play.

In recent weeks I have become obsessed with Basic (and Expert) D&D, and have so far written two complete supplements and a new class for it. Just today I spent a little over an hour writing up a Barbarian class for B/X. I think all of my stuff turns out pretty good, but that's not the point.

What is the point? I honestly don't know. I think maybe I am living vicariously through my creations; perhaps living out a fantasy in my head that I am a game-designer of great note and reputation, and that my stuff received by the fans with great fanfare and "Holy bells, how did I play without this?"

In fact, it's all just an exercise in futility. Or maybe it's an exercise in game-material writing, and someday I will put what I have learned into practice and write for a real game that will pay me for my efforts. Yeah, I'm going to go with that.

Anyways, due to scheduling conflicts we may or may not be able to play 5E this weekend. I'll be bummed, but I will live. Also, the DM of my regular 3.5 game recently had a family tragedy, so that game is postponed too. But, that won't bother me. Because family is more important than gaming any day of the week, and I feel for him.


  1. So where is it? I'd love to see it.

    I myself write a lot of RPG stuff that never sees the light of the table. Hey, it's better than wasting a couple hours on the next inane reality show or overbudgeted blockbuster from your local Redbox.

  2. Hmmm...maybe I should make a seperate page here and put all of my crazy ideas up on Googledocs...
