What do, WordPress?

So, the “new” layout is awful and I really don’t care to use it.  I’ll see what happens in the coming days, but it might be time to jump ship if things don’t work for me.  I’ll figure out something, hopefully.


Also, I guess May and June are Elemental Planes themed…

I couldn’t think of a title…

So, I promised monsters.  I’ll still work on something, I promise.  As for filling in gaps by converting Guardinals, Gehreleths and then some?  Hopefully, I can get around to that at some point.  I might put those up on the Guild though, I’m not sure.  I’m hoping to back port many of my homebrew ideas to 2E as well, for the sake of original Planescape.  Such idea is probably madness though.  That said, I’ve continued to explore other games outside of D&D, including things from outside of its usual genre…  Well, far more since quarantine.  I’ve played plenty outside of it, but now I’m taking the time to actively binge read.  So, how will that affect things as the year progresses?  Not sure!  Also, while I’m a bit tired of 5E, I still like it to a degree.  A good break from it might actually rebuild my interest in it.  We’ll see.  In the meantime, I wanna finish up my stuff on the Inner Planes.  From there?  Maybe a quick thing or two on the Astral and the Ethereal… Maybe?

New Year, New Me?

We made it to Cyberpunk 2020!  Happy New Year!  Happy New 20s!  Anyway, I needed a break from gaming stuff.  I’ll be back soon enough.  Plus, I’ve been rereading some other RPGs.  I think for a new year and new decade, considering other systems might be in order after all.  To be pretty honest?  I’ve been feeling a bit tired of D&D 5th Edition.  Will 2020 be the finale for 5E content?  I’m still deciding.  In the meantime, I will roll out a few neat posts about the glories of the Lower Planes, maybe something else when they reveal the Spring 2020 big adventure thingy that I won’t buy…  Who knows?  It’s a new year/decade of possibilities!

Coming back to form.

Well, the past month or two haven’t been too easy for me, to say the least.  Without intended, I basically went on hiatus for pretty much a month.  There’s been a lot going on.  Quite frankly, I haven’t really had my heart in the page for a little bit.  This isn’t anything against my readership really, mostly with myself.  As always, I’m looking for ways to improve.  This isn’t just for the games that I love, mind you.  Despite my frequent blinking out, as well as older pages vanishing (and sometimes mysteriously teleporting onto a semi-private Patreon workbench, like some Ravenloft domain plucked from the Material Plane), I want to come back as often as I can to create and provide all sorts of material and ideas.  I do this because of the games and the communities I love.  As always, thanks for reading.  With any luck, you will see more of me very soon.
