- Cover Reviews of All the D&D Books: After much egging on by various people, I've decided to bite the bullet and review the artwork of the Dungeon Masters Guide and Monster Manual for every edition of the game from 1e on. The response to those reviews was very positive and I had fun doing them. Plus, I'm still wrestling to articulate just what old school art is to me, so additional entries in the series might shed some light on this thorny question.
- Regular Features: One of the things I plan to do is provide regular new game content for use with older editions of D&D (and occasionally other games). I'm thinking I'll do this twice a week, probably Monday and Friday or Tuesday and Thursday. I'll be using Swords & Wizardry rules as the default ones, since they're free, open, and readily compatible with all OD&D-descended rules sets. Expect things like new spells, monsters, magic items, and perhaps a character class or two.
- A Contest: I recently managed to obtain additional copies of several OD&D books and supplements (Volumes 2 and 3 of OD&D, as well as Greyhawk, Eldritch Wizardry, and Gods, Demigods, and Heroes). I'd like to give these away to worthy readers of Grognardia -- but not without effort! I have an idea for a contest, the winners of which will receive these extra books as prizes. Once I finalize the details, I'll post them here.

In addition to whatever posts I put up today and tomorrow, I thought I'd give you a preview of three things I'll be doing over the next week or so.
