After getting my feet wet by writing my guest post on “Experimenting with Playful Historical Thinking in the Classroom” last September, I agreed a few weeks ago to join Play the Past, a group blog exploring the intersection of cultural heritage and meaningful play, as a regular author. This should be a lot of fun and get me going again on some sustained writing.
At least initially, I will be focusing on cultural heritage in tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons. In fact, to be somewhat twee, I have branded the series of posts I will be writing as Historical Hit Points. The introductory post to this free-form series dropped today, and you can find it here: “Historical Hit Points: An Introduction of Sorts“. Go check it out and tell me what you think, either here or over there at Play the Past.
