Link of Fame: Winter is Coming Festival

From time to time a number of RPG bloggers will decide that some topic or another would be fun to post on.  This time, wombat proposed and organized a festival called “Winter is Coming”. Winter is Coming (http://gamerblog.twwombat.com/2011/09/winter-is-coming-rpg-blog-festival.html) I meant to join this festival but didn’t have an opportunity to …

Refreshed Appearance

I decided to update the theme on this site (it was maintenance day — theme replaced, a few plugins updated, and so on) to look more like the Echelon d20 site. If you notice any problems, anything not working, anything missing, please send me a message to let me know.

This week’s interesting links. Age of Ravens Kingdom of Staircases: A Microscope AP (http://ageofravens.blogspot.com/2011/08/kingdom-of-staircases-microscope-ap.html) Ever since GreyKnight turned me on to Microscope (from Lame Mage Productions) I’ve loved the idea of it.  It’s a collaborative history-building and world-building ‘game’ where the players design a world by assertion.  Play bounces around …
