Okay, started to share this with people for the first time. I had intended to last week…but then the Hard Drive madness got in the way.
My hard drive has been failing, and while I still haven’t replaced it, I had to fdisk and reformat the sucker. I am not running windows 2000 and it feels weird, like reading the history of an alternate universe and seeing things are similar but different than what I knew.
I don’t know what OS I will put on the new hard drive, when I get it.
I managed to save most of the text files and other miscellany, but a lot of other stuff is gone, and lost. The center of corruptionw was around the windows directory, and so I had some limited DOS access to move stuff to the small auxiliary hard drive.
Thus, my game slowed down but I am now finally returning back to the swing of turns. I have high hopes for the Festival of the Unicorn and I do want to get my players involved with the events of that day.
What this means, in effect, that you must post something, after a template change, in order to see it.
Okay, the most boring game on the planet is on…can’t the NFL schedule games better? 0-4 Redskins vs 0-4 Cowboys. Ick
Okay, now I figured it out. Had to change the template on Blog…not just upload the HTML to the space on my site. It reposts the thing from scratch every time, rather than adding to the existing HTML file. Interesting.
Hmm, Strange, the template colors didn’t take. Curious.
Okay, I changed the template around somewhat, to colors more of my own. I’ll probably tinker with the thing for quite some time in the future. A new toy! Now, some actual good content.
I’ve been reading a bunch of RPG books lately, buying them like popcorn. I am very interested in the upcoming Nobilis, and another game, Agone, looks interesting too. Maybe I will pick up the latter when Nobilis comes out.
3e Manual of the Planes was and is interesting. I caught a Zelazny reference…the new link between alternate prime material planes (game worlds) is…ta da, the Plane of Shadow. Even more clinching, the description of the terrain changes on the POS trying to go from the corresponding area on one world to another sure sounds like shadow shifting to me. Pretty neat. I had disliked the idea of splitting up the Prime Material Plane this way (in the old 1st and 2nd edition, all the Prime Material planes had the same set of outer planes…but now, conceptually, D&D worlds can be easily plunked into an Amber universe with a lot less fuss now, if you wanted to do such a cross.
Well, here we go. After looking at Arref’s, and Meera’s and a couple of others, I finally decided to get one of these things, too. However, since Mindspring gives me more than sufficient room for my webspace, I am going to host it on my own site, rather than on Blogger’s. I just don’t like ads, and I can hopefully modify and alter the template to my liking.
For those who are browsing me for the first time, my name is Paul Weimer, a 30 year old resident of Staten Island, NY, and this is my BLOG. Enjoy.
