It's simple and not cluttered.

I'm rebooting the blog in an effort to write more. At the moment, I tend to write more at Google+ instead of here. That's not a bad thing, except that I have larger pieces I want to write. Outside of this site, I have two more personal writing projects for my family. I may share those at some point, but for the time being, those are more personal.

On this blog, I plan on posting about two different things: Magic Systems in RPGs and Swords & Wizardry.

Every Monday, I will have a post about various magic systems. I love magic systems, especially ones that I can get to work in a game. Outside of an explanation of the system itself, I'll include a way to somehow shoehorn them into either Swords & Wizardry or some other D&D clone. The first set of posts will start with systems found in old fanzines, textfiles from various BBS's and my personal notes from 1981 - 1988. Other sources will include systems mentioned in Dragon magazine and various d20 products. I look forward to seeing what comes of it.

Other posts will appear semi-regularly. I am one of a handful of editors on the Swords & Wizardry SRD site, so in addition to various changes happening there, I want to add content to the forthcoming third party section of the site.

Discussion of this post can be had below in the comments, or here on Google.
