Updates and something to read.

Been away from my blog for a bit,  with a bunch of the posts I had on auto-post.

First thanks for the replies on the A to Z post yesterday.
I enjoyed posting these.  It was a challenge to come up with some of the letters, but most were fairly easy and worked into my regular posting habits to be honest.

I have some reviews coming up, some thoughts I have on the Cleric class and some more ideas.

I also want to take this time to point out something my friend Jason Vey is doing over at his Blog, the Wasted Lands.  He going over the 1st Ed AD&D rules in detail, starting with the DMG.  If you want some insight to what many consider the greatest RPG ever, then please read go over to his blog, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/ and have a look and post.

Here are the first 6 parts.
Part 1, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/04/advanced-dungeons-dragons-first-edition.html
Part 2, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/04/reading-advanced-dungeons-dragons-part.html
Part 3, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/04/reading-advanced-dungeons-dragons-first.html
Part 4, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/04/reading-advanced-dungeond-dragons-part.html
Part 5, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/04/reading-advanced-dungeond-dragons-part_29.html
Part 6, http://wastedlandsfantasy.blogspot.com/2011/05/reading-advanced-dungeons-dragons-part.html

I had wanted to do something similar, where I read all the DMGs over the last few years.  But I want to see what Jason does first.  His point of view is a bit different than my own; he is very much into the history of the game and comes from a very pro-Gygax point of view (not that I don't).  I think he has a good insight to the game and his posts are interesting to read.

So have a look while you are waiting for me to post something of substance.
