Welcome, TYWKIWDBI readers. I thought it was nice for Minnesotastan to allow readers to share their own blogs. And I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce someone outside of my regular community to some of the cool stuff going on with old school D&D these days.
I play a heavily houseruled Dungeons & Dragons game about once a week. A lot my ruminations here are about DIY gaming, houseruling aimed at streamlining play, and making the game my own.

Thanks for stopping by!
