I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did. My wife outdid herself with all the wonderful food.
As far as gaming goes, I tend to be behind. I just discovered that Paizo is licensing a MMO game.
This is hardly news to anyone. Personally, I wish Paizo well. I hope folks really like it.
Seeing that this happens from time to time, I keep hoping that someone will license Labyrinth Lord or Swords and Wizardry into a MUD. I wish it would be as simple as downloading Pennmush and creating rooms. I imagine it would take a bit of programming to get the standard classes.
Still, it's a frontier untouched by the OSR so far...
I still remember the unofficial MUD list circulated in college. Once I got XWindows running on my Amiga in my dorm room, I could rely on a bit of good gaming, especially during finals when the brain was fried.
I know that the OSR is more than just nostalgia. It's just that the idea of an LL
MUD MUSH would be the ultimate in retro.
Then again, maybe putting all the rules in an HTML Help file is the ultimate retro. 🙂
I promise to have something more useful next time.
