Friday Knight News, Gaming Edition: 16-MAR-2012

What a week! But on the plus side, tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! I know this may not mean much to a lot of people, but it’s my second favorite holiday behind Thanksgiving. I not only get to cook (the Crock Pot is an amazing magical device) one of my favorite meals of the year (corned beef, cabbage, mashed potatoes, and soda bread)… but I get to eat it too! I turn into one big, ugly Leprechaun this time of year. It ain’t pretty. 🙂

As far as Game Knight Reviews went this week, we learned a bit about Adam Roy, RPG freelancer, I took a look back at all the reasons I’m thankful for gaming, there was a brief survey about what the “best part of roleplaying” is (more on this in a sec), plus a review of BP3: The Prophecy Revealed (PFRPG) from Blackbyrne Publishing and two guest posts! One from Andrew Armstrong encouraging us all to get out an enjoy the world more and the other from Robert Oglodzinski about roleplaying some horror adventures set in high school. One full week!

The poll results were intriguing… Out of 19 total votes…

  • Nobody liked the die-rolling
  • 5% like the combat
  • 21% fell in the “other” category
  • 32% like the Camaraderie
  • But overwhelmingly, 42% like the Role-playing

The “other” category brought up terms like: “exercising creativity,” “the story,” “challenge of a good dungeon crawl,” and my favorite… “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.” I kept waiting for someone to come up with that answer and Matthew got it!

A big thank you goes out to everyone who did the survey! It was a fun way to fill a day and you may see another poll or two in the near future. 🙂

So without further ado… Let’s get to the news, shall we?

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!

I hope everybody has a great weekend!

There are more links available at my Bundlr collection today, but the grid isn’t working, so here’s the link
