Three quick updates

Posted by WJWalton on Tue 13 of Sept., 2011 15:08 PDT
- The Grand Masquerade, which is the 20th anniversary celebration of the Vampire: The Masquerade RPG, starts this Thursday and runs through Sunday. Whether you enjoy the game or not, it's still a very impressive event centered around a single RPG. I'm hoping we'll see some great pics and video of the celebration in the coming weeks.

- Chuck Wending explains why writers should play roleplaying games. Chuck uses a lot of grownup words, so please click with discretion.

- Dungeons & Dragons has once again landed a nomination for the Toy Hall of Fame, and again, the other nominees present some stiff competition - the dollhouse, Hot Wheels, Jenga, Pogo Stick, Puppet, R/C Vehicles, Rubik's Cube, Simon, Star Wars action figures, Transformers, and Twister. Only two nominees will make it into the Hall of Fame, and they will be announced on November 10th.
