Be cautious at night traveler, for the darkness brings a life of its own.
Murderers and thieves prowl the inky black alleys of Ravendale seeking victims...seeking blood.
Many a wanderer has taken to the streets in the Low Quarter only to wind up a corpse by dawn.

I've been writing a new RPG system, Empire Role Playing, for so long now, I think I'm losing my ability to be creative!
I know that sounds kind of contradictory, writing a role playing game and not being creative, but trust me, it's possible. The game has a bit of crunch to the rules and I've spent so much time writing and editing rules from a logical stand point, I feel like I'm forgetting how to just let loose and be creative. I used to GM for a game group constantly and one of the facets of my game that I was most proud of was improvisation. I could come up with a night's adventure on the spot in under 15 minutes and no one would really know that I was making it all up on the spot based on what they were doing. But now, I have a hard time thinking of an adventure hook, let alone being confident enough to lead a group for 6 hours and keep them entertained.

So I stumbled on a great YouTube channel called Drunkens & Dragons a couple of weeks ago. I don't know much about him other than he goes by Hankerin' and he's awesome.
He's got some great insight into DMing and does outstanding game-related craft projects. I've watched most of his videos and I have to say, I've learned a few things. He has an off-beat sense of humor, but I think that's kind of required if you're gonna pretend to be a wizard or a barbarian for long periods of time.
Now go watch his vids and learn to play D&D like a big ol' bad ass!
