A freaken exciting week!

Why am I so excited? I have so many reasons I might just have to list them of in fashion which I have become so accustomed to. I do love lists! To be a bit more serious (if I can get serious) this whole week has me really excited. WotC released their new errata this week. I know tons of people get really pissed when something they love gets changed, and I empathize. But I like clarification on issues which remain cloudy, and rule “Zero” always remains in place so any errata a DM feels does not enhance their game does not have to be obeyed. As far as I am concerned clarification with no real negative consequence is always good.

Next up Chatty DM, Newbie DM, and Dave Chalker are teaming up to produce a podcast for DMs! I’m stoked, from what I understand it’s supposed to be short sweet and to the point. You can read all about it over at NewbieDM. Suffice to say, a short and sweet podcast helping DMs only is right up my alley.

Tons of people (except for me) have received advanced “review” copies of the Players Hand Book 3 this week and lots of great information about the new classes and races is readily available. I’m excited about this but I’m also trying hard to avoid the tidal wave of pre-release information. I don’t really want to know everything contained between the covers of the new BHB until it’s in my hands. The influx of information gets me excited because it makes for great buildup of anticipation leading to the public release. Kind of like seeing Christmas specials on T.V. and really getting excited for the upcoming holiday.

This week I got to play with my new group for the second time. I’m not DMing this group so I get to play! I’m playing a class I have been wanting to try out for months now. I am Avok a level seven Shadar-Kai avenger. This guy is the freaken bees knees! He is a thrill seeking, adrenalin junky who worships the goddess of death. This makes for one interesting character. My new group is a group of friends who have been playing together for a while, but they are all new to the game just as I am. So I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything or leaning on anyone for advice. If anything If anything I fear I am meta gaming a bit too much and trying to help the others out when I should just let them play their characters. All in all I’m having a really good time!

I’m working on writing up my second skill challenge. This one took place on the high seas, and involved a low level party trying to navigate a boat. I think I’m getting the hang of skill challenges, though I still don’t really enjoy the run of the mill social encounters. I’ll explain that in my post about the challenge though, should be this week.

Giveaways! I have noticed that tons of blogs, shops and websites have been doing giveaways over the last few months and I’m not going to miss out on that action. To date This is My Game has had at best 30 visitors in one day, and has a total of one comment not written by me. So I’m going to be doing a series of small giveaways to try to promote the site. Not that it really needs more visitors, but I really want feedback on my thoughts and ideas. I started this blog so I could share my ideas and hopefully get some solid feedback and fresh ideas to enhance my game. So more people might mean more feedback and more though provoking ideas. So be looking for my first giveaway coming later this month. I’ll start out small with something like a pack of minis, but later might start doing larger items like books or rare mini statues.

That’s it. That is what has me really excited this week. Oh I just found out that Ben’s RPG Pile is linking to my first skill challenge as an example so I’m extra excited about that. I probably would have put that at the top of this post but I didn’t want everyone to know how desperate for attention I am and what a big deal that is for me. But hey, everyone needs a bit of validation now and again right 🙂


Part idiot. Part old man. All geek. Thadeous can't think of anything interesting about him self right now. Know this though if he could it would be creative and funny as well as thought provoking.
