New on the site: Finding Games and Gamers, comments, and forums!

Posted by WJWalton on Wed 29 of July, 2009 17:17 PDT
Here are some new additions to the site:

I've added a new Resources page - Finding Games and Gamers, a list of sites that can help roleplayers network with each other and find game stores and clubs in their area. (If you know of some that I have missed, be sure to contact me and let me know about them!)

Comments have been available on the blog posts for a little while now, but I've waited to go public with them until I was fairly sure I had them configured the way I liked. If you'd like to be part of the discussion, read the posting rules, then sign up and post! (Due to a substantial amount of phony signups, you'll have to wait for approval from me after you sign up, so please be patient.)

Speaking of discussions, I'm also ready to open up the Forums. They're not anything grand - I like to think of them as 'cozy' - but they'll suit the purposes of the site well enough. Head on over to and join the discussion, or start a new one!
