To quote Morrison, “this is the end, beautiful friend; this is the end, my only friend, the end…” And that sound ominous, but don’t take it as such. This has been a joyous month, getting back to writing in the blog, in many ways getting in contact with friends I had not talked to in a while. Becoming more active on G+ and Twitter again! It feels like a new start. I hope it can translate all this into more regular postings; I have a couple of topics I want to tackle over the coming weeks. However, I’ll be silent for a few days after this last post. Today I begin a much needed (but short) vacation and tomorrow Nilda and I will get married. It’s a small ceremony with close family and friends.
We decided to do this as part of a trip we had planned already and although we can’t have all our friends there, we’ll have a get together when we come back to Puerto Rico to share the happiness with everyone. That’s sort of what I hope to do with sharing the news here. Michael, aka Stargazer, opened his blog to me, gave me a place to share my thought, and in the process became one of my dearest friends. I wish I could have him there at the wedding, or at the very least at the dinner afterwards when we come back! By the same token, the community of readers here in the blog was very welcoming, and here and through social media, I feel I’ve made so many new friends that I really wanted to share the news with all of you! Thanks for reading, thanks for hanging around through our dry spells. Next time you read me I’ll be a married blogger.
Now on to the topic at hand…
August 31: What is the best piece of advice you were ever given for your game of choice? Continue reading RPG a Day 2016: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – Day 31
So we come to this, day 30, the penultimate day of #RPGaDay 2016. So much fun! As I’ve said before, August has been a rollercoaster. Like last year, RPG a Day 2016 got me back to posting regularly in the blog after a long spell of inactivity. This year RPG a Day came at a month were some of the elderly family members I help take care of were unwell, I had a lot do to at my new job, plus Nilda and I were getting everything ready for our wedding next Thursday. An auspicious month, but very busy; everything seems to be going as planned now, and as everything draws to a close, we’re ready to end this challenge and I’m ready to get hitched. So let’s get this post out of the way!
August 30: Describe the ideal game room if your budget were unlimited.
Day 22 last year was about a perfect game environment, and while I went into some details of the amenities I would like, I did one of my sappy cop outs and said that my ideal place to game is where I can have fun with my friends… I still mean that, but this time around let’s take it seriously and map out my ideal RPG Crib!

Welcome back folks! There are just three days left to go in this year’s challenge. #RPGaDay 2016 has been a lot of fun. Let’s tackle the last few topics. Today it’s all about wish fulfillment. I first thought about the ideal game room, but I looked ahead and that’s tomorrow’s topic. This is about the location, hosting a game anywhere on Earth. Let’s think about that!
August 29: If you could host a game anywhere on Earth, where would that be?
My first thought was “A kick ass palace!” Imagine running Dungeons & Dragons in the Alcázar of Segovia or any of the other great castles of Europe… Then I got nostalgic and thought, maybe I would run a game where it all started, the basement of Gary Gygax’s house. Then I thought, let’s go fancy, a game at the top of the Eiffel Tower! But I believe the character sheets would just fly off. Continue reading RPG a Day 2016: “It’s full of stars!” – Day 29
