Posting’s been slow at the Mule for a variety of reasons. We’ve got ambitious plans in other areas of gaming: Eric has been doing mind-blowing work for Exalted, including posts for the Ink Monkeys blog which sadly is not currently accessible at the White Wolf site. James is working on formalizing the system & curriculum we use in our D&D afterschool program, and also setting up an Underdark campaign with psionics using the Cook Expert guidelines for sandboxes. (James would say he’s procrastinating on those things rather than working on them, but for me at least procrastination accounts for the bulk of the effort I put in before it gets done.) And I’ve been volunteering some time to the Gygax Memorial Fund, and starting some other projects that may or may not have something to do with George’s colossal announcement. (That’s not a tease; I genuinely don’t know yet if this will be the case.)
But another reason that’s kept the post count low is ambitious plans for what we’ll write about here. I know I feel the urge to say something big and deep every time, and the number of fascinating but unfinished posts by fellow Mules visible on our WordPress dashboard suggest I’m not the only one who bites off chunks that prove hard to chew – often led astray by guys like Zak who make big, deep, and prolific seem easy.
Anyway, as an antidote to this paralysis & on the idea that easy posts are better than none, I give you Connor Anderson’s Roll a D6.
For non-grognardlings who may not recognize the song being parodied, I recommend the Popular tab on Grooveshark, where “Like a G6” is currently at #29 after spending much of the past year at #1. Following what Grooveshark users are into provides essential pop-culture vitamins for those who don’t play D&D in a public cafe with constant top-10 radio, and is a nice dietary supplement even for those who do; I don’t think we’ve heard any Far East Movement on the soundtrack there yet, more’s the pity.
