The Point of this Blog

I have in mind several purposes for this blog. They include:

1. After-Action Reports of my Home Game.

I have played B/X, 1E, 2E, 3,5E, and tried 4E. I am currently interested in rule-lite gaming. Right now, my group has settled on a Moldvay Basic/Labyrinth Lord but with basic rules for mini use. If you live in the Niagara Region of Ontario and want to play, get in touch.

2. Review Academic Journal Articles devoted to the Study of Role Playing Games.

I work as a professor in Ontario, Canada. I plan on writing a cultural history of D&D, and need to review academic material of note on the subject. I'm hopeful to bring material to light that some in the gaming community may not be aware of. I'm doing this blog for fun and to engage with other gamers, it won't become another job. I have too many of those :)

3. Discuss personal points of interest related to Old School gaming.

Occasionally, I bump into really neat stuff other people are doing on their blogs, or I just need to rant about a particular subject and get something off my chest. I'm hopeful you will bear with me.

Thus, the purpose of this blog is to review and discuss D&D in public fashion and, hopefully, provide a platform through which to debate and discuss the game with like-minded gamers.
