First off, allow me to apologize to my readers. Things have been hectic and rough since the holidays. My home life has gotten busier and my work has started booming at the same time. I have also gotten the Castles & Crusades Rappan Athuk game back into full swing, though I do not intend to post play updates of it. I have barely had time to get anything done on the "Equipment & Encumbrance Manual" let alone blogging. For this I apologize, but life must come first. The fact is that this week I have put out my first posts since the 2012 retrospective on 1/1/13! I haven't even gotten to post on the "Dwimmermount Affair" and that has been hefty news on the OSR front. That aside, two things are going on this week that I MUST report on. The first of these is here. The second relates to the "rage" that I was covering back in late November. That's right, I'm talking about the Gygax magazine release this Saturday.
I received this (as many did) in my email this morning:
Gygax Magazine Launch Party
Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 2:00pm.
We'll be opening the first box of magazines at 2pm sharp, and doing a live + video Q&A with the crew: Ernie Gygax, Luke Gygax, Jayson Elliot, Tim Kask, Jim Wampler, and James Carpio.
There's a full day of gaming, including Savage Worlds, Marvel RPG, and Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. Admission is free, games require tickets, sold at the event.
Plus a massive AD&D 1E dungeon delve with the founder of Dwarven Forge!
Magazines go on sale, online and in-store, as soon as the first box is opened.
I'm pretty excited about this, seeing as how I got a quick first shot at the inside scoop, and it seems like it will be living up to the hype! I'll be watching/listening if at all possible this Saturday afternoon.
