Campaign Kludge

Continued planning for my current Midderlands Game Anyone who knows me will be aware that I’ve fallen heavily for the OSR side of the Force (it even replacing my once-beloved Fate in my affections).

Red Dice Re-organisation

So, UK Games Expo 2019 is over, I had a great time GM-ing for Games on Demand with my wife, Lloyd Gyan and all the other excellent GMs (and of course players), now I’m sliding into that post-Con funk stage of existence.
