*Wherein your humble scribe presents a stable of boxers for use with* **RINGSIDE***, that odd little boxing simulation game by Brian Blume that appeared in* Dragon #38*.*

Boxing, like baseball, has always fascinated me. I can’t quite put my finger on why. It’s certainly not something I’m good at. But that’s not the point of this post, so we won’t dally there. Instead, here’s a small stable of boxers I rolled up for RINGSIDE. I’d love to figure out how to do something with them – a campaign or tournament or something.

Side Note: I absolutely adore the idea of strange, convoluted campaigns for war and sim games (like the great Starfire! campaign I never got off the ground back in ’95), but they never come to fruition. Blame it on real life. Blame it on laziness. Blame it on being unable to find other people who share my level of weirdness. Who can say?

Anyway, I don’t expect that many (if any) of y’all are even aware of the existence of RINGSIDE, but hey, consider this post a reason to rush out and track down a copy of Dragon #38 (and #61, where the aging rules for boxers appear). You know you want to 🙂
