Friday Random Links & Thoughts - 9/15/2023

Weekly roundup.

- I've mostly back on a regular posting schedule. I'll be trying to keep it up.

- Next game is in about a week and change. It'll be Vic's game again.

- HANS posted about Bergmann submachine guns.

- A character for the Psi-Wars game. I'm looking forward to reading session summaries.

- The End of Calidar. I left D&D/AD&D earlier than it came out, so I don't carry a lot of nostalgia for it. I like flying ships and whatnot, but clearly the fanbase isn't large enough to sustain the game. That's too bad - and I know it's something true about some games I like now, too. They have insuffienct critical mass . . .

- I played a bit of Icewind Dale . . . and it wasn't as fun as I remembered. I'll leave it off to the side for now and concentrate on other work.


  1. Too bad about Calidar. I'd only learned of it a couple of months ago while looking for resources for Champions of Mystara/Princess Ark, during a brief BECMI phase. It looked interesting.

    1. It is too bad. It's hard to sustain that kind of work with a small customer base, even given a global reach.

  2. Aw yeah, The Voyage of the Princess Ark, that takes me back. I love 'travelogue' gazetteers.

    I'm also eagerly awaiting mshrm's Psi-Wars campaign as well. I followed his last AtE game, and he writes the sessions up well. Right now I'm playing "spot who is playing what characters" based solely on the Sesh-0 PC write-ups.
