(Reposted from my roleplaying blog The Contemporary Quixotist
has announced New Year, New Game
a project that they (and I) hope will encourage gamers to seek new vistas and run a new roleplaying game every year.
Their mission is (and I quote):
"To inspire game masters to run at least one new game each year, because trying new games broadens your horizons, challenges your skills as a GM, and can deepen your enjoyment of gaming as a hobby."
NYNG will be promoted with a blog carnival (in which I will be participating) and a pitch-your-game contest, in which GMs are encouraged to send a short "elevator pitch" of the RPGs they'd like to run, for a chance to win a prize bundle from Engine Publishing, DriveThruRPG, Obsidian Portal, and more.
