Redbeard's Gaming Blog

Howdy.

This blog will mostly be about gaming, with occasional other nerdy cultural topics. I've got plenty of other interests, but lately I've been typing more and more about gaming.

Current Gaming Interests
I've been running a 3.5 campaign for nearly three years. I love the group, and I love the depth that these players tolerate and that the long running campaign allows. However, I am more and more hateful of the system. You'll likely hear what I do and don't like about 3.5. You'll also hear me enthuse (and occasionally complain) about this group of friends, and my devious laughter (or painful tears) regarding schemes I'm plotting.

I also play and run in a Castles and Crusades sandbox. It is set in Greyhawk, using Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg. This is actually where my gaming passion lies these days. This campaign is co-DMed and has a large community of players (14!) so you'll likely hear about the unique situations that brings up, as well as my thoughts on C&C rules and my creative process in this campaign.
