Humpday Blog-O-Rama 5.1.19

Blogs are an integral, vital part of the RPG hobby. They serve as incubators for new games, sounding boards for fresh 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 make a living from 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 and blog, I take a look at what is going on in the vibrant RPG blog scene. Check out previous Humpday Blog-O-Rama posts HERE.

  1. Also very excited for the Trilemma Adventures book!

    Oh, and I printed out your pocketmod dungeon and gave it to one of my players who has apparently now played it with his brother. I am told that there were at least eight fatalities!
