RPGaDay in August - August 10th: How Has Gaming Changed You?

We continue on with #RPGaDay in August.



Day 9 - How has gaming changed you?

Hmm, interesting question, and tougher than I thought.

I think that gaming has changed me in a positive way in two aspects. First of all, I'm much less of an introvert than I was when I started gaming (some 40+ years ago). And I'm a lot better socially adjusted, I think. Secondly, my interests became more diversified as a gamer than they were before, as I've found myself researching various subjects for the games I'm running. So my knowledge base has become...broader.

If gaming has changed me for the worse, part of the equation that you can't really not go into, it's that my taste in games has shaped me as a gamer, and I'm not one to game (either play or run) games with genres that I don't like or elements of the game that turn me off. And no, I've got nothing else to say on this matter. :)

Happy Birthday, Ian Anderson!

Happy Birthday, Ian Anderson! :)

Ian Anderson, the lead singer of the British progressive rock group Jethro Tull, celebrates his 70th birthday today. I have long been a fan of Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson's solo work, and am delighted that Ian is celebrating another birthday.

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, dear Ian,
Happy Birthday to you!

Best wishes, Ian. :)

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

It's been another of those weeks where, to be honest, I would like to forget it for the most part due to the health problems I've had this week. I'm looking forward to gaming this weekend, but I also hope I'm going to get a chance to get a bit of serious relaxation in as well.

Anyway, the Friday night gaming group will be continuing their Living Land campaign of the Torg Eternity RPG this evening. I'm looking forward to the game, as the group will be starting a new adventure, and Kathy told me that everyone's looking forward to this evening's game session.

In the meantime, gotta clean up some of the supper dishes.

Have a good evening, folks. :)
