Humpday Blog-O-Rama 2.6.19

Blogs are an integral, vital part of the RPG hobby. They serve as incubators for new games, sounding boards for new ideas, and platforms for up-and-coming talent. They keep "forgotten" games alive, foster discussions, and build communities. Not everyone can work for a big game company, command a large audience on Twitch, or get paid for their art or cartography, but every RPG enthusiast can easily create a blog and start sharing their passion with the world. Every Wednesday on the Thought Eater podcast, I take a look at what is going on in the vibrant RPG blog scene.

LISTEN TO THIS WEEK'S EPISODE HERE

I have started doing companion blog posts to provide the links mentioned in the podcasts. I probably should have done these from the start, but I have never been accused of having great foresight. The links are listed below in the order they are mentioned.

  1. Thank you for the shout out on the show! IF you want to try a few of the FF game books, they are DIRT cheap on amazon, I've picked up a few for like $1, and in some cases $0.38 lol! The advanced rules, there is a quickstart pdf for free on drivethru if you want to have a read thru. Its a very solid system, rules light. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/108092/Advanced-Fighting-Fantasy-Quickstart
