Once more into the breach!

I have assembled the bare bones of my Northlander 2nd edition AD&D Campaign.

The campaign will be on a fantasy world of my creation, heavily influenced by Celtic, Norse, and Finnish cultures.  We will be playing on roll20 using Google+ Hangouts.

The campaign will start on October 4th at 5:00 PM PST. and hopefully continue on a weekly basis.
I'm looking for 6 players.

I haven't had a good rant in a while sooo...

So I started using Roll20 to look for games and possibly run one or two of my own. 

I figured, here is a world where I can connect with other players from all over and play the games that really interest me.  I have a bi-weekly table top game with some friends and my boys, but it’s Pathfinder. I’m by choice more of an old school guy, and I have an itch for playing pulp era games that has never been satisfied.
 I’ve got the time, I’ve got the desire, and I have the rules.  But here again, I’m having a hard time finding players.  

I see a posting for a game and I sign on, we play one great game and then…poof-(work, family, school, etc.) raises its ugly head and the game ends.  

So I take matters into my own hands and post up an ad for a game. I get dozens of responses telling me how cool the premise sounds and how they would love to play buuut…
It’s too early in the day.
Too late in the day.
They live in Iceland.
Wrong day of the week.
Wrong week in the month, etc. etc. etc.

!*&$#&*! Frustrating!!!

I have $150, 00.00 in gaming rulebooks & material and no one to play with!

I did find a nice 2ed. AD&D game on roll20 last week.  I hope it lasts.

Rant over.

By the way, this is the game I'm looking for-

Because this is how I Geek!

I'm playing in an online 2nd edition AD&D game this weekend. It's set in the Forgotten Realms so I figured I'll resurrect a character from my old Living City days Mr. Wu, my bad-ass Fire Elementalist. But then I figured it's a new millennium so I should update things a bit.

So here is Mr. Wu's daughter Xiao-xing.

A buddy of mine did most of her accouterments.  Check out her wands, and here is a close up of some of the potions she carries.

New Tarzan, Pellucidar,and Carson of Venus strips...and More!

I just wanted let you all know that the official Edgar Rice Burroughs site has authorized several new Web-Comics to be produced. Tarzan of course, but also a few other titles that dont usually get much attention.
These are brand new weekly strips by subscription. The cost is only $1.99 a month.  for that price you get access to all six of the current strips with more anticipated in the future.  The strips feature stories and art by top-flight comics people like Roy Thomas (Conan & JSA) and Chuck Dixon (Batman & The Punisher).
I subscribed the other day and I'm loving it.
