News from Around the Net: 17-FEB-2012

With apologies to The Police and Sting, “We are spirits… in quite a digital world… are spirits…” I’ve spent my week in virtual boxes at work and I’m glad it’s Friday. It is Friday, right? It’s not just a mirage brought about by too much monitor radiation? “Our so-called ‘puters beep… With phones they try to jail ya. The e-mail’s getting deep with the rhetoric of stalemate…”

Definitely too much monitor radiation.

If you followed the blog this week, there were no interviews like I hoped. But next week you’ll get a good one from Jonathan Jacobs of Nevermet Press! That said, I did manage to finish off my Fantasy Craft review (long review in 7 parts!), plus review KQ #20 and a new 4E supplement from Rattlesn@ke Games focused on spirit possession
and body thievery called Playing Possessor. And the Gassy Gnoll expressed his strange relationship with cleanliness, combat, and munchkins.

Will Walton @ The Escapist this week kicked off a series of articles called “20 Sided World” which focuses on RPG culture around the world. And the first post was a link to Robert Oglodzinski’s post last weekend about gaming in Poland in the 1990s! Thanks Will! I for one am looking forward to learning more about gaming in other parts of the world and would encourage the bloggers outside the US to contribute to this article series!

Beyond that, I pondered more about the people of Ashid and the mysterious disappearances plaguing them. No mirage there – something’s definitely afoot in the desert. That much is certain!

Next week – more reviews, the next (and probably last) article about Ashid at Nevermet Press, along with the interview I already mentioned. It’ll definitely be an interesting week!

So let’s move on, shall we… To the week’s news!

That’s it for this week on the news front. If you want a bit more, check out the Weekly Roundup at Roving Band of Misfits, the Weekly Assembly from Gamer Assembly, and Chris Hackler’s “What’s Up With D&D?” at ENWorld. There’s definitely plenty of news go go around!

In fact, I didn’t want to go too much longer this week than I already am, so be sure to check out the Bundlr grid below for the stories that I didn’t include. There’s a ton more great links in there!

I hope everybody has a great weekend!

As always, if you feel I missed something (and it would be impossible NOT to), drop me a quick note via the contact page or drop me an e-mail at news(at)gameknightreviews(dot)com and I’ll add it to the list for next week!
