If you build it, they will come

Well, we're very nearly at the end of a year that has seen an incredible growth in the OSR. For myself, it was the year that I finally stopped talking about restarting gaming and actually did it, with the eager assistance of both Junior Grognard and my good buddy Old 4 Eyes. It seems strange to think that I've come so far in such a short time and now have a presence in the blogosphere and 26 followers.

26 people who are actually interested in what I do and what I have to say. Wow.

I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments and suggestions and for setting up and running some very entertaining, encouragingly good and useful blogs of your own.

What does 2010 have in store? Well, I hope to recruit some more players, get a real campaign going, maybe get some playing in, get involved in TARGA in the UK (there must be some Brit Old Schoolers, surely?), convert my Training Dungeon to S&W and venture into publishing OS material in partnership with Old 4 Eyes (that last one is the scariest but also the most exciting). And of course more posts that I hope will entertain and stimulate as the year goes on.

Keep rollin' those dice and may you make all your saving throws!
