Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 2-MAR-2012

February is short, but where did it go? March zipped in under the radar and I wasn’t ready for it. Yet, here it is!

Sorry about only one review this week, but it’s looking like next week we’ll shoot for three reviews, plus an opinion piece Wednesday, and the weekly news on Friday, with Robert Oglodzinski’s weekly article over the weekend. This week I did have a chance to check out Swordgleam’s Problem Mini-Gen at Chaotic Shiny, encourage folks sharing opinions to take the higher road at The Gassy Gnoll, and we heard a bit more from Christina Stiles about the Journeys to the West project at Open Design. Folks are humming right along!

You may have noticed that I’ve changed the name of the news roundup this week. I’m experimenting to see if we can find a better title than “News from Around the Net,” which is a bit vague. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to get them. So far (courtesy of the kind folks on Google+), we’ve had “Knight News from Around the Knet” (Martin Ralya – Gnome Stew), “Awesome Gaming Finds!” (Mark Gedak – Purple Duck Games)…

Now… On to the links! If you have any thoughts after reading any of these posts you’d like to share, I’d ask that you leave comments on the posts themselves. They deserve the feedbaclk folks. 🙂

Oh, one more thing! Guess what? The GM’s Day Sale is on at RPGNow/DriveThruRPG. That’s right – it’s that time of year again to buy a present for your GM and show some love for the torturer of your characters, the killer of dreams, the one and only god at the table who really matters… Your GM! Until March 7th, you can get 25% off tons of cool stuff to show how much you care. Check out the sale today!

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 (don’t be put off by the fact that it says December 27th – it’s new I swear!). There’s definitely plenty of news go go around!

(For more links that did and didn’t make it into this post, check out the Bundlr page this week. I would have included it at the end like always, but something went wonky with how it appeared -not in a grid, but in a list – so I decided to yank it.)

On the way out, I have to wish Wolfgang Baur a late birthday (it was his birthday this past Tuesday I think!) and Raging Swan Press an early two year anniversary. Congratulations and best wishes to both! And if you have a RPG blog, I’d encourage you to submit it to the RPG Site of the Year Award contest over at Stuffer Shack. Great prizes and recognition could be yours!

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!

  • Thanks for the nice words, Fitz, but I’m not quite sure what you mean when you say you’ve been “learned”. It sounds to me like you started to say one thing and then overtyped part of the sentence with a different phrasing (I know because I’ve done it more than once!)

    Hopefully, what you meant was “learning”! In which case, it’s a pleasure to be of service.

  • Hi Fitz,

    You may have made your roll but not with the critical success needed to make your meaning clear to someone who isn’t “modern and hip”, either!
