New Year's Gaming Resolutions for 2010...

Good Evening, All:

Like most bloggers on the RPG circuit, this is the time when I feel I should make a number of New Year's Resolutions for 2010, particularly in regards to gaming during the coming year. As my wife is pregnant and due in early June, this coming year is going to be particularly challenging on that front. Nonetheless, here are my three gaming resolutions for 2010.

As a side note, I put all of my resolutions in a three word format, as there's an unwritten rule that all Universal Truths can be expressed in three words. For example, please consider the following: "Love is blind!", "Life is pain!" and "It's a trap!" Besides, three word phrases are easier to remember throughout the year, and if you can remember your resolutions, then you are more apt to complete them.

For Gaming, my New Year's Resolutions for 2010 are:

1. Publish four products.  Last year, I made a goal out of publishing three products, and I successfully did so. This year, I'm upping the ante, and putting the minimum total of products at four. Hopefully, I'll meet and even exceed that number.

2. Blog thrice weekly. Now that I have an RPG blog, it helps if I have content. Therefore, I'm making the resolution to blog here at least three times a week. I'm sure I'll try a bunch of different things, and hopefully along the way, I'll come up with interesting posts that contribute something back to the community.

3. Publish four fanzines. I've been very lax in publishing issues of Stellar Reaches, my Traveller fanzine. This year, I am resolving to publish four issues, one per season. These do not apply to the first resolution given above, as they are not products that I will post on the Samardan Press storefront.

I'm sure I'll do a lot more in regards to gaming, but these should make very good resolutions that will contribute to the gaming community at least on some level. Ultimately, that's really what it's all about. I know that I will be gaming as regularly as life allows. That isn't a stretch. The above will be a stretch, but if I can manage it, then I'll be a very happy camper at the end of 2010, at least on the gaming front.

More Later,

Happy New Year and good luck with the resoloutions (particularly the first two, as I'm not really into Traveller!)

I'm looking forward to your work on MyD20Lite. Btw, I'm the same person as "Birthright" at Dragonsfoot...
