In gaming terms, I played more but ran less; historically, this is a strange state of affairs. (However, I mostly ran Unknown Armies — a failed modern game and a continuing early modern game — so that's a small victory.) With the failure of the Carcosa campaign and the Spelljammer campaign, I think my brief flirtation with old school D&D has ended for the moment. (If interest waxes again, then I may run again; I still plan on running the Carcosa megadungeon for Constantcon/FLAILSNAILS once the 4e crew finishes with it, and I'd like to return to Spelljammer at some point, because I put a notable amount of work into that campaign.)
Sadly, as I'm running fewer games, there have been fewer innovations on my part at the gaming table. I have been posting my updates on the Better Than Any Man-to-Unknown Armies conversion, but that is about the only notable thing I have been doing recently.

|The rest of the collection comprises this bottom shelf and the small stack of books on the far right.|
I have a few duplicates, and Nicole's collection of roughly a dozen or so books (a score of books, maybe?) is interspersed within this collection, but that's largely my own insanity on display.
To my surprise, D&D and its many derivatives (including d20 Modern, retroclones, and any associated games) form the bulk of the collection. (Although that's by volume; boxed sets are fairly bulky.) World of Darkness makes a strong showing for second place. Call of Cthulhu, Deadlands, and Unknown Armies probably round out the top five.
