So it appears both Scott from Trollish Delver and Gamecaster from T&T Liasha World (a new T&T blog on my radar) have awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award a couple of days ago. Thanks guys. But it appears that there are requirements to fulfill when you receive this award (there's always a catch). First you have to acknowledge and link back to those that gave you the award. Done. Next you have to share seven things about yourself. Hmmm. Here goes.
1. I was a member of the Society for Creative Anachronisms in the late 80s and early 90s. I never really got into the costumes and personas, but I loved the fighting.
2. After high school I enlisted in the Army and served as a TOW gunner.
3. My favorite TV series is currently Battlestar Galactica, the new version, even though it's been off the air for some time. I own all of the DVDs.
4. I cannot stand raspberries.
5. My favorite band is Green Day, and it has been for some time.
6. I love to go hiking, especially with my wife. One of my favorites was to the Harding Ice Field in Alaska.
7. Ruins fascinate me.
Finally you need to nominate some additional blogs that you think deserve the award and then let them know. Let's see, here are eight in no particular order:
1. Trollish Delver: I'll hand this right back to Scott although I know you're already received one. His blog is cool and slick and has lots of great material for T&T. Plus he has a nice free GM adventure available to download and a solo on the way.
2. Troll Hammer: It's been a while since it's been updated, but the Creature Feature alone makes this a great blog for T&T enthusiasts to check out.
3. Maximum Rock and Role Playing: A cool blog on all things gaming and not with some great photos of minis. He's currently searching for miniatures to use in The Royal Armies of the Hyborian Age. Chad is also a fantastic artist.
4. Tran Eskoor an Doon: A nice mix of gaming related musings including lots of great random tables from one of the founding fathers of TrollsZine. He's also a fantastic GM no matter what he says.
5. Tenkar's Tavern: A nice assortment of gaming and gaming-related greatness.
6. Jeff's Gameblog: One of the first gaming blogs I started reading. Jeff is just awesome. His current project, the One Issue Campaign is brilliant and I can't wait to see more.
7. The Omnipotent Eye: Another one of the first gaming blogs I started reading; always great stuff on a variety of game systems to get the idea machine churning.
8. Turn to 400: I just learned about this one from Trollish Delver. This blog includes play reports and thoughts on various Fighting Fantasy game books. There are not that many posts, but they are fun to read.
