Greetings from the New Initiate

When Chris Sims extended an offer to joining Critical-Hits a while back, I was intrigued. I liked the site, and its reputation as a good group of people who usually stay positive about games (but while remaining honest about their opinions). My existing blog, while mostly about gaming, didn’t cleave strictly to D&D discussions. Or at least I didn’t plan for it to always do so. Also, I’ve made a long tradition of following in Chris Sims’s footsteps ever since I became an editor on D&D shortly after he did, so here was another chance.

So I made the switch and became part of a larger whole. The advantages are tremendous, and I look forward to being a part of the Critical-Hits community. But I wasn’t sure where to start. What would my first topic be? I knew I wanted to switch over before Gen Con, so I could tell people where to find my stuff. Maybe I’d start it off with another installment of my 4E Success or Failure series. That seemed like a strong way to go.

But then I ended up securing a professional badge to San Diego Comic-Con when they got some badge returns, and was suddenly about to fly off to California. So what better way to kill two birds with one stone than to cover the convention, giving C-H something new and introducing myself by showing the readers what I care about in the gaming/geek sphere. So join me over the next few days while I see the sights at San Diego Comic-Con 2010. Expect late posts, though. I’ll be busy!


  1. awesome! Glad to see you on board with such a great crew.

  2. Congratulations on joining a great website. I look forward to your posts.

  3. Glad to have you on board, sir!

  4. Welcome, we’re incredibly glad to have you here!

    Also, I’m psyched for us to have someone at SDCC to give us some inside scoops, since it’s tough for Dave and I to get out to the west coast!

  5. Welcome to the ever growing family Logan. I was telling Dave we could develop a whole East Coast/West Coast Geek gangsta’ thing here.

    Looking forward to seeing you again at Gen Con!

  6. Hey, Logan’s here. Now I can say it: West Coast forever!

  7. Critical Hits: taking over the world one gamer at a time. Congratulations, Logan!

  8. Welcome to CH. I hope you’re a sane one – the other guys are crazy!

  9. @Chris: Our East Coast posse will trounce you. We should have some sort of geek Indy duel. Like Magic or DDR. 🙂

    Of course, all in the spirit of peace and friendliness.

    My oh my our humble origins do seem so long ago.

  11. Man, if I knew about you going to SDCC, I would have sent my Player’s Handbook 2 with my girlfriend and got you to sign it! 🙂

  12. Where/What is that picture of the fighter and dragon from?

  13. Looking forward to see what you add to the site Logan.

    The knight and dragon sprites and composition are ones I made for my business card and decided to use here as well.
