2020-05-04 New RPG blogs

You know how it is, in social media and in blogging, or in out in the face-to-face world when we’re not in lockdown: friends come and go, enemies accumulate... no, of course not. But interesting people come and go, that much I find to be true. You follow them on social media and then they stop posting — I used to see it on Google+ and I’m seeing it now on Mastodon. The solution is to keep following new people!

In the world of blogging, that means following more blogs. It’s why I’m keen to recruit new bloggers for the RPG Planet. We need new people to supplant those who have moved on to greener pastures, who need to focus elsewhere, who have dropped out of the hobby, found new things to do.

“New” blogs I’ve enjoyed reading:

What are your suggestions for 2019, 2020? 😀

Lately when I find new blogs, it’s usually because they’ve shared a link on the Blogroll channel on Chris McDowell’s public OSR server on Discord.

If only the stream of new blog announcements made it into the RPG Planet! 😀

Hey Alex, have you thought on making a sister page to RPG Planet that mimics Lobsters? It will be an interesting way to share and discuss about RPG-focused topics.

It sounds like a lot of work and seeing how I don’t like the kind of conversation engendered by Reddit, which is broadly similar (I think?) I don’t see myself as a regular user of such a system. I’d rather just have people discuss stuff on their blogs. Blogs work for me. 😅

Yesterday I discovered the fascinating Pretendo Games blog. I enjoy the dissertations about how Jason establishes and tweaks the rules of their games. Every change has a reason, a rationale derived from playtesting the rules. Practice-to-theroy translation.

In addition, he has quite a few games. I like Exhumed and Grave.

Yeah, I’ve seen @JasonT post on Mastodon but I’ve not tried his games.
