Happy 2010!

No time for a real post for at least another week, unfortunately, but I thought that I would mention that I’ve made a modest change to the blog. I’ve now divided the list of links on the right hand side of the blog into three categories: ‘Classic D&D’ (which covers OD&D, Basic/Expert D&D, 1e AD&D, and their respective ‘retro-clones’), ‘Basic Roleplaying/d100’ (including Chaosium’s Stormbringer/Elric games, and Call of Cthulhu), and ‘Rolemaster/MERP’ (focusing on Rolemaster 2e/Classic). These are my three favourite role-playing games – or, I should say, ‘families of RPGs’ – and I hope to write more about all three in the future.

If you are unfamiliar with BRP, there is a free ‘quickstart’ version of the rules available here. Also, RPG.net has a positive, recent review of the quickstart rules here.

Finally, I thought that I would mention that a very positive review of Knockspell #3 has been posted here.


(Above is a picture of Blarney Castle. Since I will not be posting anything for at least a week, I thought that this picture would make a nice placeholder.)


  1. I thought you were going to give us a little Blarney. Instead, you give us the whole damn castle.

    BRP was on the shelf of my FLGS. Must get down there and purchase a copy, to see what the fuss is about.

  2. i like what you did to your blog and castle!

  3. Are you on the BRP forum, Akratic?
    I slide by there. I have the books, but no current BRP campaign, sadly.

  4. @ancientvaults: Yeah, I visit the forums at 'BRP Central' occasionally, where I post under the moniker 'Akrasia' as well.
