A full on blog post this Monday Morning, all about a great motivating factor in gaming: revenge!. As always, comment away in the bit at the bottom, but mainly, i just hope you guys are liking it so far. I know I've only been blogging for a couple of months, but I'm having a great time and seriously thinking about buying the domain for myself as a Christmas present in a few months.

LOL! Are you sure? Surely the first think you do when society falls is do over the nearest branch of Cotswold Outdoors or Blacks?

I ran a game of zombie survival horror set in my local town (the OS map link should tell you where that is) and the first thing they did was hit the B&Q mega store. They survived for weeks longer than I thought they would.

Happy Monday everyone! Since the GM advice I give out seems to be the best received of my blogs, I've decided to put my years of horror GMing to good use with some tips for any GMs wanted to get a good scare out of their players. Check it out, and sound off in the comments if you have your own stories to tell.

This week's new blog, is a bit of a teaser for the adventure I'm writing, or at least the bit of it that takes place in an abandoned mine.

I normally read your blog through Google Reader but I popped along to the site. I love the header - but it is quite large (tall). I have to scroll a lot pretty soon on my tiny little netbook.

never really thought about it on a tablet/netbook. I have half decent sized monitor, and when I use my phone, it doesn't show the logo, just text. I might see about playing around with a bit more, but it took a while to stop the logo looking squished up :D

Thanks for the input though mate, and I just hope you liked what you found beneath the logo.

Bit of an update on here, in that my blogging home has changed just a bit. Head over here and take a wander around the new place. There's not much changed so far, in fact I've put a bit of effort into making sure I've lost no content, or comments from anyone. You may have to just update your follow button and feeds if you want regular updates.

My reason for doing this is because of a very generous chap over at G*M*S Magazine giving me some web space to call my own. If you've liked my blog at all, please head over as a thank you, and check out what they do there. This isn't just because they've given me my site, but because I love their site, and have even guest blogged a review over there.

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!* I know a lot of you will have the day off work*, but my blog never rests! This morning I have advice for players more than GMs, but there should still be something here for anyone who plays RPGs.

If you want more details, or to find out why they think I deserved the award, then click the link and take a look.
