Memorial Day Lazysaurus…

A thousand apologies for the lack of a post yesterday, the Stupid Ranger crew were heavily busy with some much needed R&R, home repairs, and moviegoing (Iron Man woot!).

In addition to our standard fare, I am happy to report that both SR and I ordered our GenCon badges yesterday! We’re optimistic for a great time this year, we’re making a distinct effort to get to meet and greet our fellow D&D bloggers.

This morning Yax has posted an interesting read over on DungeonMastering about having an “innovation party” for fellow DMs, and I think the whole premise (in addition to his article) is a wonderful idea. In fact, we have been known to (somewhat) regularly get the Stupid Ranger crew together to brainstorm ideas for articles, roleplaying stuff, t-shirt ideas, etc. and it usually turns out well for us.

Yax also stresses the importance of having a motivation or reward for these type of events, and I agree that whether I’m doing this for my campaign, this site, or a project at work it really helps to have a near-term “slightly delayed gratificiation” reward for getting through the effort. That level of focus and release is really what helps you get real productive ideas on the table without too much of the “I’m bored of this let’s B.S. for an hour” interruptions.

Regardless of my $0.02, his article is a great read. Go check it out and reward yourself with a cheeseburger or something!
