End of Year Closeout – Finishing What We Start

Now that the holidays are imminent, I thought I would throw around some of the things I plan to work on over the holidays. Normally I take the week of Christmas off, but having just started a new position I don’t have that luxury this year, but I will still get some time off. It is during this time that I will really ramp up my efforts to accomplish some ongoing projects and prepare to being some new ones. I hope each of you are taking a little time this holiday season to finish what you have started this year. It feels good to complete projects and move on to new ones.

I have a reading list that looks more like a library’s book manifest than it does a reading list. I have recently received quite a few books and PDFs from several RPG companies to review or I have purchased several books that I would also like to review.

For Labyrinth Lord RPG:
Ghoul Keep and the Ghoul Lands
Guidebook to the City of Dolmvay
The Chronicles of Amherth Setting
Bonus Cards: Fantasy Deck 1
Atarin’s Delve (module)
Blood Moon Rising (module)
Oak grove Whispers (module)
Pyramid of the Dragon (module)
The Inn of the Lost Heroes (module)
The Shrine of St. Aleena (module)
The Stealer of Children (module)

Other Books:
A Dirty World
Shadows of Esteren: Book 1
Monsters and Other Childish Things
Wild Talents
Progenitor (for Wild Talents)

In addition to all the reading and reviewing that I will be doing in the coming weeks, I still want to keep carving out time to play or run games. Isn’t that what this hobby is all about? playing games! Right now, I have seven game sessions on my calendar and I am going to try to squeeze in a few more sessions before the end of the year. Are you interested in playing or running some games this month? If so, hit me up! I still have some time available on the weekends and on some week nights.

I am also looking over my collection to figure out I want to run in 2015. Some of you may or may not know that I created the 2015 RPGG GM Challenge – Run 5 Games You Have Never Run over at RPG Geek. My motivation for the challenge is for all of us, veteran GMs or new ones alike, to run games we have never run before. I am challenging all of you to sign up and take the challenge; step out of your comfort zone and help grow our hobby! So, blow the dust off those books and don’t forget to knock the digital dust off those PDFs too!

During the holidays I am hopeful that I will be able to assemble the first playtest kit for Charge to Glory. You might recall this is the game that game designer Richard Berg asked me to develop and make it ready for GMT’s P500 pre-ordering system. The counters are almost done and then it is time to push some counters!

Holy crap, I have a lot to do before the end of the year; Mrs. Modoc is going to think I am ignoring her (again)! Time to also formulate a plan to keep the work/home/hobby life in harmony!
