Geek Pride Day - it figures

I found out today that Geek Pride Day is celebrated every May 25th.

Coincidentally, this is also the anniversary of my birth (and, naturally, the anniversary of the release of Star Wars in 1977, which is the stated reason behind the choice of date).

Doesn't it just figure?

Unfortunately they don't have special interest groups for either RPGing or wargaming. I hope they wise up before the day of days rolls around this year!

Players Wanted

After having been on hiatus for a few months due to some out-of-game circumstances beyond my control, I will be restarting my game in a couple of weeks and hereby put out the call for players interested in participating.

The game will meet every other week, roughly, at my home in northwest New Jersey (Sussex/Morris counties). We met on Friday evenings last time, and that seemed to work out well for everyone, but we might change based on players' schedules. We usually do pizza.

The game is AD&D 1E, with minimal house-rules (I do initiative a little differently than the books, and do away with the "roll to see what spells you can ever learn" rules). I've got spare PH's aplenty for those who don't have theirs any more. Needless to say, the campaign setting is the World of Greyhawk, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if my in-the-works version of the Castle of the Mad Archmage wasn't prominent.

If you're interested and in the area, please shoot me a private email at joseph at josephbloch dot com and I can answer any questions.
