And another thing...

So far, the library game has only garnered one sign-up, the aforementioned Tai. But my mother, who is teaching at a local public school, has been talking to a couple of her new students who seem like they'd be interested in the game.

However, the outpouring of support and encouragement from other children's and youth librarians has been unbelievable. When I went into work on Wednesday, LeeAnn, the children's librarian, handed me this:

Everything in this box is perfect: the book, the Keep on the Borderlands, even the dice and crayon for coloring them in. I have never met this Steve, but apparently he found this copy of Moldvay Basic in a friend's attic and decided to send it to me.

That's fucking awesome.


  1. Totally OT, but I was up in your neck of the woods today and would have dropped you a line, but we were running on a tight schedule and had to get back south to take care of my animals. Next time. :)

    Back on topic: kick-ass!

  2. Steve is a hell of a guy. Good luck with getting that game off the ground. *fingers crossed*

  3. Keen!

    I wish I still had my old Moldvay...
