Must...Organize...Useless...Ideas...

Once upon a time this blog had zero followers. Assuming you are reading this before the end of all things, it probably now has more than that. Here's a highlight reel for anybody who might've jumped in mid-stream.

WTF is This Blog?

Some rules & DM tricks I use and, sometimes, why I use them:

  2. Zak, I may be blind, but did you post your answers to the GM Questionnaire anywhere?

  3. I don't suppose you have any tips for how to get more followers?

    Easiest way: consistently write posts i want to read. Then you're on my blogroll, then you get followers.

  5. It's interesting going back to read some of your earlier posts.

    Sometimes I forget where the ideas and discussions that had a large influence on how I think about the game came from. The Conan knew more about Cimmeria one in particular was a pretty key one.

    A good long run you've had here.

  6. Zak, I ran across your blog (and IHIWMA) at just the right time. I'm digging your rules-light, seat of the pants approach. I've been flopsweating (sweating flop?) because I'm slated to run a D&D game for a group of RPG newbies in the 11 to 16 age range and realized:

    a) I haven't run a game for teenagers since I was a teenager (so late 80s early 90s), and

    b) even though I've started up lots of newbies, I've been running pretty much the same player group for 7 years and

    c) it's 3.5/Pathfinder, so lots of crunch.

    Man, I wish I could buy you a beer and pick your brain for a couple hours! I guess instead I'll have to troll your blog some more. Thanks!

  10. Zak,

    Somehow I ended up at your blog today (must have opened the door to the treasure room). Great posts, awesome art, cool to find out about the girls as real people, and very impressed with you.
