Happy St. Cuthbert's Day

It has been a rough 2017 for me and mine. Someone in the house has been sick continuously since January, thus I have not been a position to do a lot of stuff here. However, on this auspicious day for those of us who love this hobby, I'd like to give a bit of an update on some of things that have slowly but surely been taking shape:

  1. I've been piecing together a version of Moldvay's Basic as it might have looked with only MMII monsters available plus a few ideas thrown in for fun.
  2. More slowly is the adventure that would come with the MMII Basic. I am toying with idea of having them in one volume rather than two, but that depends on how motivated I get in terms of finishing the adventure.
  3. My oldest has been keen on trying her hand at being a Referee. I figure that Swords & Wizardry Light would be a great little system to cut her teeth on and we have been working on a mini-campaign that would cover levels 1-3. She and her friends are big fans of the school of magic trope in fantasy literature and S&WL has lent itself quite nicely to the concept. I am planning on compiling our ideas into a nice 16 page 5.5" x 8.5" booklet.
Hopefully these will be done and shared sooner rather than later, and that by publicly announcing them I will be even more motivated to get them finished.

May the intercessions of St. Cuthbert bring blessings to us all.


  1. I'm grateful that you're still posting when you can, in spite of all your travails. I look forward to Moldvay a la MMI. :)

  2. The idea of making your own personal version of a book of rpg rules particularly for your your 'oldest' is a lovely idea. Put some of your own drawings in it no matter what your drawing skills are. Things like that last for good reason.
