2018 - Year in Review

2018 was, for the most part, an extremely quiet year for GLGames, with only a single release (Pyramid of the Lost King Extras - The Howling Dolmen), and blog posting only through April.

For the most part I have spent the year finishing up my latest juant into the realms of academica and reconnecting with family (anyone who follows me on the now doomed G+ should have seen the myraid of photos from camping trips in deep, dark forests)  and looking for new and gainful employment.

On that note:  Success all around.

This was, however, a troubling and turbolent year in other respects.  A year where we saw RPG reviewers and commentators assaulted at Gen-Con, paragons of the OSR alleged to have harrassed and assaulted others, a divide of the OSR into two camps ... and my - how do you say -  tart relationship with both factions have left me drained and very much heading to the door ...

2018 hasn't been all bad though, I was a guest host on the RPG Breakfast Club twice and will be again in January (and maybe beyond).  My far more hobbyist work in the d6 community (especially Mini-Six) has been regarded well with calls for expansion of my house-rules for the system into something releasable (I swear guys, I am working on that!), and I have found a community (online) of fellow gamers to play with on a semi-regular basis.

So with 2018 closing I can say it was a bitter-sweet year, one with a lot of ups and downs, but also leaving me with nudging toward optimistic for 2019.

Happy New Years, everyone!  Let's make 2019 an amazing year in the OSR and gaming in general!
