First Post?

So. Started a blog. What the hell am I supposed to do with it?

I suppose, if I’m honest with myself, that hardly anyone will care to read it, and those that do read it–beyond my inner circle of friends–will not particularly care about what I say on here. Suffice it to say, though, that doesn’t really matter much to me. I look at this blog as an outlet for my writing, creativity, and, well, whatever else happens to fall out of my brain.

Most posts will be about Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Exalted, Stars Without Number–gaming in general, really–and writing, both creative writing and writing for the above games. How much I get done really depends on how much time I have available, but I’ll at least post something every couple of weeks. Currently, my projects range from a sci-fi novel, conversion of a few Pathfinder Adventure Paths to D&D 5e, creation of a few Adventure Paths of my own, and a few other miscellaneous things that catch my fancy. I’ll probably keep adding projects, as well, and abandoning others as my tastes and availability change over time.

I suppose, also, I should explain the name of the blog. It is an inside joke and reference to a few D&D games my friends and I played over the past few years. In every game, there is at least once where one player goes carousing, and, through bad luck, rolls an unlucky number 13. In the carousing rules we used at the time, number 13 happened to be the character in question attempting to chat up a witch whose business is her own, and being turned into a pig for an indefinite amount of time for his trouble. This happened not once, not twice, not even three times; the same player managed to get himself turned into a pig four times in four different games, with four different characters. The legend of the witch has taken on a life of it’s own now, and she makes an appearance every game we play in, and no matter the setting, it’s the same witch, hopping into her own version of the TARDIS and being in the right place at the right time to turn the same character into a pig, because he invariably always rolls a 13 when he goes carousing.

That’s all for now, as I can’t really think of anything else inane to say. Cheers.
