Hello, I don't know if anybody is still out there but I am finally clear of law school, bar study, and my trip to Viet Nam. I am settled in at a regular 9 to 5 (actually 7 to 4) job again as a lawyer for the U.S. Government in MD. Working for the Federal Government was my goal entering law school, so it is Mission Accomplished over here. I enjoy law, but money is a horrible motivator for me, knowing I am helping my fellow citizens makes me eager to get in every day.
From a blogging standpoint this is also good news. I know my postings have been pretty slim around here for the last year or so, but I have built up a good backlog of posts so you should be seeing a lot more, even if I have busy periods.
While things have been bleak on the blogging front, they have been great on the gaming front. For a period of time over the last year I had three regular games going at once: an OSRIC game in Stonehell (DM), a Pathfinder game (Player), and a Castle and Crusades game set in the City State of the Invincible Overlord (CK). The Stonehell game continues and we will be playing a session this weekend. The Castles and Crusades group carries on without me with Drance from Once More Unto the Breach at the helm.
I will be checking out my FLGS here in southern MD on Wed. for D&D encounters, to try to meet some local gamers. While my ultimate goal is to get players for some old school gaming, I am also excited to try out the Encounters format. I ran a 4th Ed. game through most of the heroic tier when the game was released and enjoyed it. I admit that I have not paid much attention to 4th Ed since then, so I will basically be a noob.
I went to GenCon again this summer, and I will have some (very late) things to say about that. I also acquired Hexographer/Dungeonographer and I have been making maps and write-ups of some very, very old adventures I wrote using those programs. I hope to post some of those soon.
As a sign of good faith, you will be getting another post from me.... Now
