De-stress & Decompress
- by Bly, February 05, 2018, 06:34:13 PM

This is a blog all about dealing with stress, intense situations, and strong emotions. A few things before I get into the more enjoyable content of the blog, as a disclaimer:

* My blog won't be a substitute for RL therapy/counseling, of course, nor for appropriate RL help of any kind. I myself attend counseling, and it's given me some wonderful tools to deal with stress.

Emerging from the gentle grip of night's unfolding arms
Darkness, darkness everywhere, do you feel all alone?
The subtle grace of gravity, the heavy weight of ...

I've wanted to do something like this for a while. I'll be doing a page-by-page review of rpg books that I haven't had the time to sit down and fully read, giving my mostly first impressions and thoughts. These Let's Reads will be for tabletop rpgs and their supplements only for now. My goal is to approach this in a light-hearted way as someone who is experienced with tabletop in general, but who also wants an inclusive place to welcome new individuals to system gaming, so if you're new to systems and want to ask about what I'm currently reading, please hop in and ask! If you don't understand something I referenced or would like to to talk about something more in-depth, again, absolutely ask. There are no bad questions!  8-)

I just ask that there be no edition warring should comparisons with other systems come up. :)

Anyways, feel free to post comments/q...
