Closed


I would like to thank all authors who contributed to this blog. Special mentions:  Journalizer (whose voice I miss); Endymion "The Fair" (who bore more brunts than he should have); Grendlewulf (who moved on before me to some other enchanted land), Scottz (who is creating elsewhere, but still creating); and of course Benoist, the aloof Frenchman.

Your voices were welcome as they were well intentioned and sincere.

I leave you with a few quotes and a short poem.  Plus a song.


"I believe in the pure Surrealist joy of the man who, forewarned that all others before him have failed, refuses to admit defeat, sets off from whatever point he chooses, along any other path save a reasonable one, and arrives wherever he can. Such and such an image, by which he deems it opportune to indicate his progress and which may result, perhaps, in his receiving public acclaim, is to me, I must confess, a matter of complete indifference."  -- Andre Breton

"Usually in all works of art that have been conceived from within outwards, and generously nourished from the author's mind, the moment in which he begins to execute is one of extreme perplexity and strain. Artists of indifferent energy and an imperfect devotion to their own ideal make this ungrateful effort once for all; and, having formed a style, adhere to it through life. But those of a higher order cannot rest content with a process which, as they continue to employ it, must infallibly degenerate towards the academic and the cut-and-dried." -- Robert Louis Stevenson

"Ce monde n’est que très relativement à la mesure de la pensée et les incidents de ce genre ne sont que les épisodes jusqu’ici les plus marquants d’une guerre d’indépendence à laquelle je me fais gloire de participer." -- Breton


Realistically seasoning,
His idealistic reasoning,
He galloped past ruin,
Having carved and hewn,
The right of nativity,
For him, creativity.
... Like a stallion of thought,
Loosed upon the plain of futures.
{RJK, 1979, Mexico City}

After The Storm

After an emergency room visit due to declining health, this combined with a major upcoming surgery for K, things are on the road to stability here at the home front.  I am feeling friskier each day and am looking forward to my 57th year of life later this month.

My foray into continued blogging will be short-lived, however.  I have said my say about creative freedom. The series, "Debunking Fallacies," will end it.  I intend to post two more which will include condensations of some related topics and then this blog will close for comments.  It will remain open for authors still wishing to post here.


What I will be doing:

I will be attending NTXRPGCon next June; I missed the last one for the aforementioned health reasons, but, as always, heard that it was a resounding success.  I am deciding on a combined seminar/Q&A session about design that I'd like to give; for gaming, I have been restocking the "City of Greyhawk Sewers" I created in 1975-1976, and with other creative additions over time (it's very large/4 combined maps/see partial below).  I intend to run this twice.



Continued reading and research for a board game I am designing, this having at its core the life and imaginings of a favorite poet of mine; no time frame on this, as it is a pet project like so many others that cooks when cooking and simmers along otherwise.

I am no longer doing written interviews.  Allan Grohe (Black Blade Publishing) is currently seeking a
film crew to do a lengthly series of onsite interviews with me.  Anyone who reads this blog that has an information path to such a person or outfit willing to film the video interviews should contact
Allan:  grodog@gmail.com

The organization of my entire unpublished and auctioned works.  Black Blade Publishing and I recently confirmed by contract to publish a hard bound catalog with DVD insert of my entire auctioned and unpublished works.  This will include, but will not be limited to:


  • Castle El Raja Key Levels (color) with existing notes for encounters
  • Castle Greyhawk Levels
  • City of Greyhawk maps, various city-level, subterranean and sewers, etc.
  • WoG Outdoor Maps (City environs, additional wilderness-dungeon designs)
  • WoG "Red Book" notes and maps 1972 onward


Essentially all that I have extant on the Original Lake Geneva Campaign, 1972 onward, typed, hand-written or mentally transmitted...  ;)

plus... Maps, articles, essays, art, combined interviews, PDFed adventures (Bottle City, et al., most of Pied Piper Publishing's product line in PDF as well as the Maze of Zayene Series), Greyhawk/RPG related stories that I was to contribute to a book Gary Gygax and I never got around to publishing, etc., etc.

The process of organizing the files started a month ago, including ancient material sifted from boxes and included in the morass of files to be scanned to top off those that were previously scanned over three auctions or that I have on disk.  My rough estimate of its size is in excess of 5,000 distinct files, though this is really a wild, rough guess.  The longer I look at the whole it seems to grow more towards 8-10m, but we shall see.

Allan and I are now at the point of formalizing the file format presentation, which will make it easier for us to page count the hard bound book.  This is huge (just the book-catalog itself, in my estimation, will probably be in excess of 150 pages), so we will be taking the time necessary to cover all bases for the serious gamer, historian and collector.  In addition I will be writing introductory material for the files as well as including some special articles.

Prior to release BB and I will establish a blog and an online forum. The blog will be used for updates, samples and such.  The forums will be strictly for product questions and answers, that is, for as long as I am alive to answer questions... ;)
