In the beginning


I'm Ancalagon.  I've been posting on the web about gaming for a long time, but it's always been on forums, message boards and other such formats.   The overwhelming number of these posts have limited value, at best. 

But from time to time, I like to think I come up with something decent.  And I told myself "maybe I should have somewhere to put those, before the forum crashes again or somesuch".  I also want a place to post some of the homebrew material I've been creating and maybe even share a small adventure or three.   So here we are.

On this blog I intend to talk mostly about Dungeons and Dragons - but that's a pretty wide topic I must admit.  To be more precise, I'll talk about 5e, a bit about the OSR (I've recently discovered "The GLOG" - look up and ), and also about Yoon Suin - a brilliant creation by David McGrogen, which you can find here: .  I'm also fairly interested by medieval economics - and perhaps more precisely, *fantasy* medieval economics.

I imagine that as time goes by, I'll come up with other topics of interest - let's see what those are shall we?


  1. Promising! I will read this. Bookmarked.

    1. Thank you! I have some backlogged material I will be publishing shortly :)

  2. Hi! I saw your blog mentioned on and wanted to ask you whether I could add it to one of the blog Planets I run. More info, and links to the three planets (Old School, Indie, and everything else) can be found on this page where I try to explain it all:
    Please let me know if you're OK with this or not.

    1. Hello

      Sure I'm game, as long as I can "pull out" later on. I don't post a ton but I'm glad for the exposure :)
