Akratic Wizardry is 10 years old

It’s hard for me to believe it, but I started this blog ten years ago today.

Over the past decade the blog has received almost a million page views (930,000). After the first year or so, the blog usually has received 6,000 – 11,000 page views per month. One month it received 23,570! (The second highest was 13,387, so that one month was anomalous.) A few months the blog ‘only’ received around 5,000 page views (which still seems like a lot to me). 

I’m amazed and grateful that so many people have bothered to visit and read my scribblings. I certainly haven’t been very disciplined in maintaining this blog (among other things, I still have to finish a few of my campaign logs). But I definitely plan to keep posting here so long as I feel the need to procrastinate—err … express my views on various fantasy and science-fiction novels, movies, television shows, role-playing games, and so forth.

Thanks so much for reading and commenting over the years!


  1. Congrats. First time commenter long time reader, wanted to say that your swords & wizardry house rules are what got me into old school roleplaying. It was kind of a lightbulb moment to read them and realise you could just... change things. Add rules, modify rules, put a simple skill system in the game, change an entire class. It's what clicked me on to light rules being a strength rather than a weakness of the oldest editions.
    I think I found this blog back when you used to post on therpgsite... back when I browsed therpgsite. Good times? Different times at least haha.
    Keep on blogging mate

  2. Congratulations and thanks for all of your contributions and commentary.
