Turning 10

Ten years ago today I launched this blog. Man, ten years. I was 39, might have weighed less, might have had more hair and hadn't started playing RPGs with any of my current group, people who have become my best friends.

It's funny how life works. I always wanted my gaming group to be my best friends and when I let that expectation go I finally found it. Isn't that always the way?

That also means I've been playing a version of DnD 5E for ten years. I keep wondering if the 50th Anniversary version will have a public playtest? Sure hope so.

I know I post less than I used to but I don't think I can imagine my life without this blog. While I'm taking a break from the OSR I'll be supporting 5E and I might work out some ideas I've had for a Percentile system, something I've been working on for, well, decades. It takes most of its inspiration from R. Talsorian's Castle Falkenstein and Chaosium's Basic Role Playing. Its hard to have better DNA than those two systems.

If you are reading this and thinking, "I wish I could make a blog", then DO IT! If I can do it then anyone can. Our hobby is better with more voices and it would be better with your voice too.

Oh, I also just surpassed 2.5 million views. Can you believe that? I can't and I've done it, which means anyone can do it.

Thanks for reading this and I hope we have at least ten more years together.
