I'm a retired MMO raider, someone who hardly finishes any single player games, and an avid board game player. That doesn't mean I'm good at any of those. As I'm German I played Settlers of Catan before it was cool - and had a multi year long losing streak in that game. I blog from time to time and am a general know-it-all.
Writing my first adventure (maybe campaign) for Pen & Paper in... forever. I notice I'm kinda rusty, let's hope this won't be too bad for the players. Not been using the system for 10 or 15 years, not DMed at all for that many years... but I seem to remember the world and a rough idea of the rules just fine, so let's gooo.
I've not played #MtG in years and Commander is still "that weird new inofficial community thing" but damn am I close to buying 2 preconstructed decks from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty because it looks so cool.
A small problem I see with playing the same systems with the same group of friends for 20 years is that we never seem to adapt to the new versions of those systems. For example we're still on Shadowrun 2 and 3 (yes, from 1992 and 1998) and we also never adapted any of the year 2001+ versions of another system (German Das Schwarze Auge).
Is that a well-known phenomenon? Do you do this? How do you find new people for your groups? #ttrpg
Apparently most fediverse instances are being crushed by the influx of new users and activity from old users - yes, me too, although I did log in once in a while but never stayed.
Interestingly I should clean up my following list first, 90% of the people are on now-dead instances and I can't remote follow because either of the 2 parties might be overloaded as well now.
Not gonna repair my blog-autoposting thing for now, I honestly had forgotten it existed.
