As a distraction from recent events, I've elected to participate in this minor challenge to create new characters—one for each day of January—released a few days at a time. For days seven through 10, I did these characters for Star Frontiers (Cook, TSR Hobbies, et al., 1982), one for each of the four playable character species (human, dralasite, vrusk and yazirian).

As a distraction from recent events, I've elected to participate in this minor challenge to create new characters—one for each day of January—released a few days at a time. For the past six days, I did these characters for Dungeons & Dragons, Basic Edition (Moldvay, 1980).

I rolled 4d6 for stats (discarding the lowest die), but 3d6 (times ten) for determining gold pieces.

Recently I had to go through and apportion which of my father's dice would go to a nephew—himself a gamer—and which I would keep. I opted for some of the oldest dice in Dad's old collection, and will be sharing images of many of them here as I get to it.

This month represents the second year of Orc.one. I've written about it before now, and all of that still applies.

For the next year, I aim to increase the quality and quantity of my own commentary on the hobby, from the gameplay diaries to meta-discussion on the nature of my own nostalgia. There may be more writing about the personal history I have with the hobby, but I also intend to have new experiences to write about.
