LOL! Synchronicity! Synchronicity! Cried in my best tonal imitation of MASH's Father Mulcahy when he would holler "Jocularity!" Jocularity!"

Hi Chris,

I've just updated one of my pages with some material taken from my gaming past that you might like to check out.

Basically it's the cover-art to our group's BASIC RULES character booklets - we made our character sheets into booklets.

This is the link if you are interested !

I'm also happy to report that my blog got linked as a resource page to an AD&D hold out site.

Oh, that reminds me, my Adventure page has a separate address, so if you want to be updated on the latest adventure posts you might have to add yourself there.

My latest post uses a title I ran across when looking through 4th Edition D&D for Dummies. They had a sample adventure and then mentioned a follow up story with the title: The Temple of the Yellow Skulls (of which no details were provided).

Like songs with the same name, I made my own unique 'version' of the Temple of the Yellow Skulls placing it in an Oriental Adventures setting. The link to the Adventure page is here:

Kind regards,

Hey Spooky One!

I will definitely link to your stuff. I am an old AD&D grognard. It's still the game I judge all games by--for good or ill.

I'll admit that in the last couple of years I have been a bit more relaxed about all this--though I still struggle with it. Part of me still longs for the days when TSR was the only real game company of consequence and when you "gamed" it meant you played D&D, not video games.

But as I've searched for likeminded souls I've been drawn in directions that I might not have expected. I'll admit to still not liking some of the new version of the game out there, but there are some new games that I really dig: Lamentations of the Flame Princess; Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG; Adventurer, Conqueror, King; Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea; Crypts & Things; and most especially HackMaster--which I am currently trying to play exclusively to really immerse myself in it.

Who knows? Maybe I'll change gears again soon. But one thing you can be sure of AD&D is and likely always will be my foundational game.

--peace and adventure
