My first big RPG event of the year is done (it's probably the biggest day with 3.5 days of gaming!), and it was bloody brilliant. Hosted by @davepaters in Tenby, it's an annual treat where I just get to play games and have no GMing responsibility. It's a great crowd to hang around with, we … Continue reading Grogten 2023
I many ways 2022 was an improvement on 2021 (see my 2021 Review). I started a new job which I quite like, I've spent lots of time with my family and friends and also got in a load of gaming, although quite a bit less that 2021 - I guess a sign of life returning … Continue reading 2022 Review

It seems strange looking back, but at the time we thought there … Continue reading The One Ring Roadtrip 2022: The Scouring of the Herefordshire
You've heard it all before... "can't wait for this", "more excited than a kid on Christmas eve", "will be brilliant to catch up with people". But this time every sentiment like this carried the hopes of Grognards everywhere. Missing the face to face Grogmeet in 2020, we were desperate for this one, we needed our … Continue reading Grogmeat 2021, the meatiest yet
