Strahd Eternal Effervescent

We had the poll a while back, but no clear decision. Nate never voted and Fuck All can't make any of the dates, but other than that the 14th and 21st seem to work equally well for all (including some extras). I'm going to call it in favor of the 14th. See you then.

When's the next game?

Next weekend?

Reiterating an Old Point.

Even though there has been some discussion here lately about Ptolus and 4e and the like, I think I should remake a point that I made a long long time ago. To wit: this probably isn't going to happen anytime soon. I simply don't have the time to DM anytime in the near future. This is more painfully apparent to me now than it has ever been before.

In less than a month I have to take the Multi-State Professional Responsibility Exam.

I have to make sure to graduate by not failing any of my classes and keeping up with my Law Review duties.

I have to take the Bar Exam in July. In the meantime, I have to study for the bar exam. That means, of course, that I will have to review and then be tested over EVERYTHING that I've learned in the past three years. Plus a few things that I haven't actually had classes in.

And, of course, I have to find a job.

I think all of these things will preclude me from doing anything game related (other than a possible turn as player or DM in a one-shot Saturday night game at some point), well into 2010. So, I'll be running no campaigns. I just really don't have the time. I shouldn't even be thinking about D&D right now.

Resources..., or How Big of a Geek am I?

So, there remains a split of opinion on 4e vs. Ptolus. Of course our options are not limited to those two. As you can see... I have resources. On the left you will note the growing collection of 4e stuff, including the first three modules. Of course, there's quite a bit of 3.0/3.5 stuff in the middle, including a bunch of modules and Ptolus. I probably should stop buying RPG books now, as I've got enough adventures to last for years and years of gameplay... but I just love collecting them. I think it is highly unlikely that I will ever DM a Basic or Expert game, but those books remain in the collection (I've had them longer than any of the rest)-- as do the Basic and Expert adventures. I wondered what the collection would look like unpacked and all in a row... not actually quite as unreasonably large as I expected. (Though this must not be all of it-- for instance there are no Star Frontiers books pictured here-- I wonder where the hell those are?)
