General information about myself or my blog
The Journeyman GM is now one year old today! To celebrate, I’m going to be holding a little contest by giving a birthday gift to one lucky winner. Somebody is going to get a free $5 Gift Certificate to RPGNow.com.
All you have to do to enter is post a comment below and answer two questions:
- What do you like best about The Journeyman GM?
- What do you want to see on this site? (Whether it be a blog topic or something else)
And that’s it! The author of one comment will be randomly selected to receive the $5 RPGNow Gift Certificate. Make sure that you include a valid e-mail address in the “E-mail” field for the comment or some other means of contacting you or I won’t be able to give you the prize.
One randomly selected comment will be drawn on Sunday, June 24th to win the prize, so submit your entry by then.
Thanks for helping give this blog an awesome first year!
I am currently in the process of switching JourneymanGM.com to a new host. The process should be painless, but it may result in some downtime for the site. If everything goes as planned, you’ll have a Wednesday update right on time.
EDIT: Okay, so things didn’t go as planned and there were several hours where nobody could access JourneymanGM.com. I wound up reverting it to the original host and things should be stable for the time being. I’ll get out my Wednesday update before I try to move hosts again.
There isn’t a proper blog post this week because I’m graduating from college on Saturday! I’ve been very busy tying up loose ends with school now, but in the coming weeks, I’ll be able to devote more time to the blog, prepare for my Origins games, and work on my big project, codename Project Prometheus, that I hope to be released at the end of the summer (If you already know definitively what it is, please keep the secret for a bit longer! But trust me, it will be worth the wait!)
Just for fun, I’m going to reflect on what graduating means from the point of view of RPG stat blocks.
Dungeons & Dragons: I get two new magic +1 Diplomas (which rumor has it increases your Intelligence, although it’s debated).
Savage Worlds: I took the Scholar Edge for my latest advance, which gives me +2 to Knowledge (Computer Science) and Knowledge (Psychology) checks as a result of my double-major.
Traveller: I took the Drifter career after my 18th birthday, but explained it as being a poor college student. Since then, my Education stat has gone up by 1 and “Started a blog” has been my life event. I’m going to be taking the Citizen career next term.
Risus: My stats are now JourneymanGM 4, Gamer 3, College Student 3.
