So, my blogging heads into its third year.
This year was a bit of a roller coaster for me, gaming wise. At year's start, I was running my beloved AD&D 1st edition campaign, which fell apart in May, much to my chagrin. After that, I ran a brief dungeon crawl game of house-rules Cyclopedia with some of the guys I train with. That only lasted a few sessions due to massive flaking out. I run some B/X D&D and Mutant Future at the local convention in July, and haven't run anything since.
Playing-wise, I joined my current Sunday group back in May. Back then it was RIFTS only. It was a goddamn disaster. The GM was the biggest douchebag I have ever gamed with. I was ready to quit when the group had La Revolucion, and he was replaced. Now we take turns running things, said DB moved away, and we aren't just RIFTS; we play Deadlands, Shadowrun, and have a number of other things on the docket (an adaptation of the Midnight d20 setting to Savage Worlds, AD&D1, Mutant Future, a homebrew based on Traveller, etc.)
As we start 2011, I am less than a week away from starting up my Traveller game. I find that I'm a little nervous... I haven't run anything since July. I've had longer breaks than this, but for some reason I feel a bit unprepared. I think maybe "underconfident" is a better term. I wish I had used more of this break to prepare for the game, but there was just so much slacking to be done.
I'm sure that I'll adapt quickly to being back in the saddle, as it were. Do you all feel out of place/off your game after a significant break?
Odd... in 2009 and 2010, I had 171 posts each year. I guess my goal for 2011 is to have exactly 171 posts...
