I must apologize for the lack of updates recently. I had been concentrating all of my energies toward finding either gainful employment or admission to grad school.
Okay, job-and-college-hunting and playing in an excellent New York Red Box D&D campaign, which has been so satisfying that I've felt less motivation to post here. Good for me, bad for the blog. I'll work on that.
The good news is that I recently got a job at a local university, so I should be able to do things like purchase RPG books in the relatively near future.
