Statement of Intent

I'll be honest: I'm not much of a blogger.

Oh, I've tried it before... but it just never seemed to work out. I'm just not much for sharing my thoughts. (Quiet, shy, soft-spoken, man of few words - these terms and phrases have often been used when referencing yours truly. Of course, this doesn't mean I'm not opinionated, because that term has also been used to describe me.) Unless I see a dire need for thoughts to be made known, I usually just keep them to myself.

Furthermore, I suffer from a condtion I call HADD: hobby attention deficit disorder. I become temporarily fascinated with certain things (games, genres, etc.), immerse myself in them for a brief period, and then move on. (I'm a source of no little frustration to my friends and family, as you may have guessed.)

These two facts mean, ultimately, that I can make no promises guaranteeing frequent, consistent posts to this blog. You have been warned...

That being said, there is a positive side to all of this. As a result of the two aforementioned facts, I have amassed quite a collection of home-brew gaming paraphernalia. From maps to character sheets to house rules to entire rulesets, it's all here - and mostly unshared outside my small game group. (Membership of which has changed very little over the last 20 years!)

So, my intentions are to share these things, especially those related to my first RPG, the one to which I always return - even if only for a brief visit - time and again: Basic (Moldvay) Dungeons & Dragons. (More on that in a later post - probably.) I hope to use this space to share these with the millions of blogosphere travelers who will no doubt flock to my awe-inspiring, resource-rich personal Web log... or, rather, the one or two users who actually happen to stumble by and take the time to peruse this grain of internet sand.

So, with the formalities out of the way, we may move on to the meat and potatoes of the blog... eventually. /wink
