Well, the 2nd draft of the 4th “Effectuators” novel is finally done. This has been a huge job, but a joyous one. I’m very drained now – time to take a rest! It will take a few weeks for the edits to come back, so I can clear my head and remember what sunlight looks like at last.
I’ve been back to reading through several of the “Dungeons and Dragons” 1st/2nd edition reboots: “Castles and Crusades“, “Labyrinth Lords“, “Lamentations of the Flame Princess“… and enjoying them all. I’m very keen to run this sort of game again. The new ‘Torchbearer” rules from Luke Crane are also extremely good (though complex). I think the best solution is to run a hybrid of these rules – the best aspects of each. But I want to do something with the wonder and the magic of those early games.
