My 500th Blog Post!

My first post to this blog was Monday, May 25th, 2009 ... 14 years ago today!

For my 500th post, I thought that it might be fun to go back through my blog and take a look at a few of my favorite posts of the past.

In my first post, I talk about A Thousand Monkeys, A Thousand Typewriters. Which is a reference to Infinite Monkey Theorem. 

I believe that the theorem is attributed to french mathematician, Émile Borel, but I attribute it to the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) from the Doctor Who episode: Mawdryn Undead. It's a theory about probability and seems especially well suited for a website that collects the written works of RPG designers. It's also cool (at least to me) that Mawdryn Undead is my all time favorite classic Doctor Who episode.

I was fairly active at 1km1kt for a few years and some of my earliest RPG designs are hosted there. I was even a moderator on the forums there for awhile.

One very early post is special to me because I talk about playing "D&D" with my then 5 year old daughter, Kaylee (now 18). 

I posted a memorial to my dear friend and long time fellow gamer, Robert Briggs shortly after his death.

One of my RPG designs Hi/Lo Heroes drew some attention in other blogs and even got a translation into French. I really should revisit that design one day. 

I designed these character classes for Labyrinth Lord that I still think are cool.

This actual play report for a Five By Five superhero session remains one of my favorite gaming memories.

This post about work on Hero DxD is heartbreaking because my good friend who was going to co-author the final work with me passed away. He is dearly missed.

This blog was also known as "Comic Book Heart" for awhile. I really love comic books and these posts sharing childhood comic book memories are favorites.

Finally, this post has links to all my RPG projects. I will verify the links to make sure that they all still work. (Or you can check the side-bar at the right.)

Thanks to all of you who have stuck around for these 500 posts. I hope to continue to post here for another 500 entries.
