Today is my birthday. I have hit the grand old age of 43, an age I never would have imagined people actively roleplayed at when I was 13. Go figure.
More importantly tomorrow is the seasonal (more or less) Gathering of Fools. The core of my old High School / College / Life Before our own Families and Responsibilities Group gets together every few months to shoot the shit, have a few beers for old fiends we've lost, watch Army of Darkness for the 27th time, eat lots of beef jerky and basically act like we did 25 years ago.
I like to bear gifts when possible during these gatherings. Castles & Crusades books, OSRIC, Labyrinth Lord, Swords & Wizardry... I've given them all out.
Tomorrow I get to give out copies of Dark Dungeons, some Swords and Wizardry Quickstarts and a single copy of the Swords & Wizardry Whitebox Edition in the collectible box. Think I'll run a mock combat with the S&W rules, last man standing gets the boxed set. Should be a blast.
Posting may be light the rest of the weekend. Or not. One never knows what may spark a post ;)
