So, my brothers were in town all weekend so I didn't get a chance to prepare any new material for this week yet.
But instead I thought I use today for something my brothers pointed out to me. I follow a lot of blogs.
Maybe too many really, but there is so much cool stuff out there and so many interesting insights that I keep following more.
So I wanted to share with you all some of the smaller, lesser known finds. Now just cause I am linking these and say not someone else's blog does not mean I like these better or even best. I may not know the other blog you are thinking of, or I might not just have anything I want to say about them yet today.
So here are some I like and think they worth checking out.
Swords Against the Outer Dark
Old School D&D + Old School Cthulhu. I like this blog beasue it has this cool almost 70's occult revival + pulpy dark 30s vibe to it. It updated often and always with something that can be used. Reminds me of a bit of the games I liked to run back in the day.
Another cool Old School blog with a lot of content. It's blogs like that that make me think "man we should get all the coolest content together into one PDF." But I think someone does that now anyway.
ChicagoWiz's RPG Blog
Ok, this one really doesn't need me to tell people how cool it is. But ChgoWiz is a local guy and I have seen his games a few times. He is back in the Blog scene and frankly I like to hear what he has to say.
I like this blog because it is a cool eclectic mix of things. He covers a lot of systems and games styles and averages a new post a day. So not too bad really. Everything is tagged for easy reading of the archives too.
Not just a song by Missing Persons another cool, eclectic mix of things. All sorts of topics are covered and there is even a weekly video blog entry.
Thoughts and posts of a 30+ year vet of the game scene. Greg may be the only person I know who has played more games than me. My DM for my current Pathfinder game (which he will post actual play reports, so you see how I do as a player.) and, hopefully, his postings on how do re-make the Marvel Universe as D&D 4 characters.
So there are just a few.
Like I said, these are ones I like. There are a lot more. Hopefully I'll talk about them soon too.
