Musings of a Madman is an irreverent column written by the author of this website in attempt to cojule, incite and rouse up some sort of intelligent musing about this thing we call roleplaying. It was originally published in Rumblings of Discord before shifting to By the Hearth, The Wanderer's Rest's ex-newsletter. Back issues will be placed under the publication they first appeared in, and new issues will be placed under the moniker The Wanderer's Rest.

The Wanderer's Rest

By the Hearth

Rumblings of Discord

As it was part of The Arcane's newsletter, some of the references and comments will appear very strange. I have decided not to modify them as they are of interest only for their historical significance rather than their content.

The Wanderer's Rest is currently undergoing a major overhaul. If you find any broken links or strange pages please e-mail the Webmaster at
