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.
