Yeah, so this is when I'm supposed to review last year's resolutions and look ahead to this year with some new ones.


I think I managed to achieve just two of my resolutions for 2011. Oddysey did run some Pathfinder for me, and I did do more book reviews.

Everything else?


To say 2011 was not a banner year for this blog is an understatement. It wasn't a banner year for pretty much any aspect of my life. It wasn't the worst year (far from it!) but I can't say I'll look back on it very fondly, beyond a few bright spots here and there, mostly to be found in the first half.

So, back to it! More writing, but most of it won't be at this blog. My goal is once a week here. Why so little? Because I've got a lot of catching up to do. I've got some writing that needs finishing up for Raggi (which should be a fun treat for those of you who have enjoyed what you've read here) plus damn near everything I mentioned last year.

And yes, I will be retuning to the my series on hex-mapping. There's still a lot to say there, including some reflections on earlier bits in the series.

The good news is that it's all fun. I'd love to be finished with it, sure, but I'm looking forward to spending time on it all as well.

Wish me luck!

Glad to see you back! I've been missing your writing.

2011 was the source of your series on hex mapping, which has been very useful to me. So thanks for that. Looking forward to your new stuff!

Best of Luck! Glad to hear about the hex-mapping (LOVED your articles on that...I consider them definitive work). And I will remain a loyal reader of all things Trollsmyth!

Thanks for the kind words! The 'net gives and the 'net takes away. I've been very much enjoying LS's Star Wars series. I picked up the same Traveller book Brendan wrote about today at the Complete Strategist and just got it back from Oddysey, who'd borrowed it (along with my DVD of the '80s movie Flash Gordon because the girl's got taste).

I have to admit, Escape Velocity had completely dropped off my radar while RL ate my time, but hey, I wasn't even reading Zak's blog, so Pfaff, you're in good company there. Xp
