The inevitable first post

I have a confession to make. I play tabletop roleplaying games.

There is no better way to make people in a new situation go and talk to someone else. Maybe that's desirable? Who knows. Anyway, this isn't going to be a blog moaning about social norms and the small-minded people who think that travelling to exciting places, "seeing" strange sights and having adventures is somehow a worse way to spend the evening than travelling to the local pub, "seeing" strange sights and trying not to vomit in the street on the way home. No, this is a blog about the nuts and bolts of gaming - something I have spent a lot of time thinking about over the fifteen or so years I have been playing and GMing. I am kicking off a new campaign soon and (obviously) I want it to work so I'm going to write about the various things I try on this blog. Maybe someone new to the game will find something useful. Maybe someone will suggest things to me. Let us take this voyage of discovery together.
