That was a helluva year. In my old livejournal account, I felt more free to write about personal stuff but this blog feels more narrow of purpose, a blog about my gaming and geekery. But I can’t look back on the gaming without putting it into context, so here it is…

Graciously thank the reviewer for taking the time to read and review your work.
“Dictionary of Mu marked the final degeneration from “trend” to “affectation” and finally, “masturbation.” By and large, strangeness for strangeness’ sake (mixed with pulp pastiche as part of a male-nerd thing) is getting monotonous. “It has a noble title as long as your arm! Mighty thews. Steam power. Spider vaginas!” Yeah, just shut up.“
EDIT: Spider vaginas? There are no spider vaginas. Witch-kingly cock…YES. Arachnida cake? No.
Quote added to the IPR site? Why, yes, it is.
EDIT II: Discussion is closed. Good night, internet.
The Cafe Game Exchange is up and running.
Epidiah Ravachol, owner of one of the most intensely cool names around, creator of Dread and admirer/admiree of Lady Lovebird Smiley-Pants, rocked this one out. This is getting cool games into cafes all over New York City for browsing.
Dictionary of Mu is out there, read it and leave it.
It is so cool to see people rock out with Mu. I cannot wait to see what kind of additions are made to the dictionary through the course of play.
Someone made a wiki of their Dictionary of Mu campaign.
And yes, they have added words to their dictionary.
My favorite is:
Those you fight first, and those you fight last.
Kai fought his brother. His brother proved to be no coward.
NOTE: Thanks, Rob, for the tip. I’m not sure how I missed/lost track of this.
250 copies of the Dictionary of Mu are on their way to the IPR warehouse.
It should be available some time after Origins, I’d imagine.
Clyde kind of winced at the review but I thought it was alright. Jeff and I started when there was a half a dozen podcasts and we did a ton of learning in public, while making shows. We jumped in with both feet, made mistakes in plain view and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
James Nostack has a thread on Story Games about Mu. Mu threads always warm the cockles of my heart.
Ithaca now has a roller derby league! I can’t make it to this week’s match but I will surely make it next time.
EDITED IN: Also, Joss Whedon’s latest. Thanks to Paula for the link. Looks alright, I’m always up for an excuse to gaze upon Eliza Dushku.
