A memento for me myself

First of all, English is not my mothertongue, so what i write may sound a little odd from time to time. I think i have to say that, at least once. So, at times i must admit that it is painful to write in a language that is not my own, it requires from my part a lot of mental concentration. I simply learnt english by studying at school, nothing more and nothing less than that. Nevertheless, i am happy to learn it more and more every day, by reading other people's blogs.

I would like to remind me of what i'm planning to write on my blog in the future and in the FAR future (besides having a sketchy summary on my personal paper diary, it is useful to carve it on stone here as well).

1- explore thing i like, no matter who and how many might be interested in it. A current instance is Sword's path glory. I am aware these kind of little known pieces of fantasy rpg history may appeal only to a few, and that's ok, very understandable. But i like the idea of mental comrades of mine looking for these types of information- maybe 10 years from now or so- and finding this blog in their research, and so finding in me a companion. The fact, after all, is that we will always be able to find spiritual friend with whom to enjoy something, no matter the distances, spatial and temporal. We are not bound to love D&D just because we are interested in fantasy role-playing games, the proof of that being the existence of several other old-school traditions.

2- At the opposite side, explore Advanced Dungeons & Dragons deeply, because it was my first love, so it is going to reside in my heart forever. Glimpses of that started to emerge with posts such as this one or others similar. There are so many philosophical implications, theories and essays that were written on AD&D which i still haven't been able to find online, and i'd like to contribute in this respect.

3- Talk about little-known fantasy movies. I already started doing that here.

4- Finish my C.A. Smith project. It encompasses several posts yet to be written, they are about the first reactions to the writings of Smith during the 1930-40 period. I want to write them all on the blog, they were taken by old issues of "Wonder stories" and the like.

5- Most importantly, speak about my favourite and beloved fantasy rpg's. They are obscure nowadays, in a sense or another, and it is likely i will open different blogs for an accurate treatment.
