The Great Blog Roll Call 2014!





Last year I started the Best Reads of the Week series to help publicize some of my favorite blogs and to help the community as a whole connect with the best content coming out of the blog-o-sphere. As I was working my way through these blogs, and trying to discover new ones, I found it increasingly frustrating. At the time there weren’t any easy options available for finding great blogs about tabletop gaming. Instead you had to either stumble upon a gaming blog when you played roulette with the random blog search or you had to find someone who had linked a bunch of blogs and read through their list.

For me this was an incredibly dissatisfying way to go about finding gaming blogs. So I went through my blog roll call and started linking each of them, describing what they were about, and providing a snapshot of their current updating schedule. On December 5, 2013 I published the Great Blog Roll Call and opened up the list so that I could add anyone who wanted to join. Since that time I’ve added nearly 148 blog to the original 130 and have continued to add even more for this year’s edition of the Great Blog Roll Call.

This year I’ve changed a few things on the list. I’ve reorganized it to make it easier than ever before to find new blogs, and I’ve added a graveyard for the blogs that were on last year’s list that have been deleted or declared dead by their owners. I’ve expanded and changed many of the descriptions to reflect the current focus of these blogs, and I've changed all updates frequencies to match the blog out puts at this point in the year.

As always, please feel free to link to this list or re-share it because the goal here is to get more people reading these blogs and to see less of them going dark, being abandoned, and being deleted. If you’ve got a blog that you’d like to add to this year’s list please feel free to either e-mail me or leave a comment below!

Otherwise, on with the lists!

Blogging Graveyard  
d20 Dark Ages: The archives are still active on this great blog that ended on May 5, 2014. Lots worth mining here.  

Aldeboran: There is nothing left but a goodbye for this once great blog. 

Here Be Dragons: This blog is completely gone with nothing but a "This website is gone" message. 

Huge Ruined Pile: Nothing remains of this blog but the memories. 

Joe the Lawyer's Wondrous Musings: I'm shocked to report that this long running blog is gone completely. 

Notes on RPGs: This blog has been deleted and it's archives are lost entirely. 

Of the 278 blogs on last year's list six blogs ended. All of these blogs were long term blogs that had active readerships and of the group only d20 Dark Ages moved on because the author was ready to start a new project. 

Numerical Blogs

2 Warps to Neptune: A nostalgic blog that looks back with a fondness for the products and early days of the hobby. An excellent read for anyone who got into the hobby later in life as you’ll find out more about what you missed as a consumer and get to read about the author’s love for all things nerdy from the early days of the hobby.

A

About Bruce Heard and New Stories: This fascinating blog by former TSR author Bruce Heard began as a way for Heard to further expand the world of Mystara for himself and fans of the setting. Since the successful Kickstarter for his World of Calidar setting the blog has moved away from new Mystara content and has instead focused exclusively on his new project. Updates: About three times per month.

Abraxas: While this sadly abandoned blog hasn't been updated in over two years that doesn't prevent it from having some interesting content. You'll find some cool artwork, interesting monsters, and choice bits of narrative to mine for your own games. Updates: Sadly abandoned.

Acorn Afloat, the: This amazing little blog is a reader's dream come true. The author will provide you with fantastic little creatures and spells for your game and then follow it up with some spectacular little setting that will leave you wondering how you can drop it into your game. Then you'll have poetry and the author's own distinctive art filling the pages; and before you've realized it you've spent seven hours on the blog digging through the archives. Well worth reading. Updates: About once a month.  

Adventures in Gaming v2: A creative blog that seeks to not only encourage the reader to expand their own creative horizons but to purchase the author's products. Lots of interesting, free content in this blog. Really worth checking out. Updates: About twice a month.

Aeons & Augauries: An expansive blog that tends to find substance in subjects others have abandoned or neglected. It's filled with creative ideas, new ways to examine standard themes, and free content that you'll find it difficult to pass up. Smartly written and always engaging; one of my favorite blogs. Updates: About 15 times a month.

Aeternal Realm of Sylvaeon: A sadly neglected blog from a creative author that has a unique understanding of the hobby and how we should play. There's a lot in the archives of this blog worth exploring as author has wide and varied tastes. Updates: Dark since February 1, 2013

Age of Ravens: If you're looking for a blog with an astute and cunning eye that can distill some of the most nebulous aspects of the hobby down into a palatable form then look no further. Whether the author is discussing the history of Superhero Roleplaying Games or whatever else might capture their interest you're in for a treat. My only complaint is that it does not update enough for my ravenous appetite. Updates: About eleven times a month.

Aggregate Cognizance: One of the best things about this blog is the author's attitude and his ability to expand upon his ideas through the comments after a post's initial publication. It's there that the blog flourishes as the author engages with his audience in a way that few of us can match - and that I personally envy. Great blog! Updates: Eleven times a month.

Aiee! Run from Kevin's Brainsplurge!: One of the oldest blogs on this list (begun July 10, 2003). There is so much content on this blog that cover all of it in this short of a span is practically impossible. This incredibly inventive blog has covered the breadth of the hobby and continues to find interesting topics to cover today. I also really enjoy the author's artwork that pops up from time to time. Updates: About five times a month.

Akratic Wizardry: An interesting blog that focuses mostly on OSR style games and their literary roots. Smartly written and filled with lots of interesting house rules that can be imported into your Swords and Wizardry game. Updates: About five times a month.

Alexandrian, the: This long running blog (started July 4, 2005) continues to produce engaging content on a regular basis. The author places no limits on what they talk about which results in a blog that is always interesting. One of my favorite things about reading this blog is that you never know what you're going to find, but it's always worth reading. Updates: About three times a month.

Alex Schroeder: RPG: An interesting blog that is presented for the reader through a wiki format - unique among the many blogs I read. This blog is something special with an author who is constantly expanding his understanding of his game and where he's going to take it in the future. Well worth reading. Updates: Five times a month.

Altdorf Correspondent, the: One of the best Warhammer blogs I've run across. The author focuses on the topic to the exclusion of most any other with the end result being a great glimpse into one of my favorite game worlds. I wish it updated more often. Updates: Three times this year.

American Barbarica: A proto-weird blog that centers its activities on creating wild events in the tradition of the weird fantasies found in pulp magazines. The archives can reveal a treasure trove of goodies if you're willing to mine for them. Updates: Essentially a dead blog that no longer updates due to the author creating the blog GIANT EVIL WIZARD.

Anamnesis of the Mystic Scholar: An old school blog written by an incredibly thoughtful author who will push against your notions of what should and should not happen with regularity. Always worth reading. Updates: Dark since April 19, 2014.  

Ancient Vaults and Eldritch Secrets, An Old School Gaming Blog: This OSR blog is filled with so much goodness that you can disappear into it for days and come out with more great ideas then you ever imagined possible. If you told me that the author was a mad scientist cranking out an army of monstrous warriors I would believe you. Fantastic read. Updates: Dark since January 9, 2014.

And the Sky is Full of Dust: This blog is a wild ride. From encounters designed for the Adventurer Conqueror King System, to free adventures to run your players through, to these fantastic session write-ups that remind me more of a boxing match than a role-playing game. A fantastic read with an easy to navigate webpage. Really enjoying this blog! Updates: Nine times a month and all of them great reads.

Angry DM, the: A humorous blog that packs more in each entry than most people would even imagine was possible. You can expect every post to be filled with jokes and well thought out advice. Fantastic blog! Updates: Once per month.

anyway.: This fascinating blog is brought to you by the same mind who wrote Dogs in the Vineyard and Apocalypse World. Like many independent publishers this blog tends to focus on the author's experiences as a publisher, but that shouldn't scare you away as there's lots of content that spans the entirety of the hobby. Unlike so many blog archives (my own included) this blog divides its posts by topic with the end result being an incredibly easy to explore archive. Be sure to check it out! Updates: Twelve posts a month.

B
Back to the Keep: This OSR blog tends to focus heavily on miniatures - and so much the better for it. Lots of interesting ideas in the archives that are easy to disappear in for a few days. Updates: Four times a month.

Barking Alien: In hobby where most everyone is talking about Dungeons and Dragons, or one of its clones, this refreshing blog explores other game systems on a regular basis with enjoyable results. The current Champions write ups have been really good. Updates: Ten times a month.

This OSR blog can jump about touching on everything under the sun and make each topic seem new and interesting. Well worth reading. Updates: Five times a month.

Black Campbell, the: I really enjoy blogs that focus on games I've never explored, and when the author can write it makes the experience all the more enjoyable.

When I clicked on the archives the browser kept crashing so I'm not sure how many it has available.

Black Gate, Adventures in Fantasy Literature: While not strictly a gaming blog this site features a slew of writers, including Grognardia's James Maliszewski, who focus on topic related to the hobby. Really a great site to explore. Updates: Hard to say, but multiple posts per day by various authors. Lots to read.

Updates: Dark since November 17, 2013.

Dungeons Deep and Caverns Old: This blog is quickly becoming one of my favorite reads. The author consistently strives to make it better with each new post. Really excited to see where it goes during the new year. Updates:  Nineteen times a month.

You'll find lots of useful ideas here for how to do your own maps, and if you follow them, you'll be better for it. Updates: 13 posts a month.

Dyvers: My blog. I write about Dungeons and Dragons, post short stories, and gaming news. My goal with this blog is to make it one of the first places you want to read each and every single day. You'll have to tell me if I'm succeeding or not. Updates: 65 posts a month.

Dwarven Stronghold, the: If you're looking for a blog to read that will provide you with hours of great material and some fantastic resources to mine, this is the one to start with. The author is often industrious and clever, and when those fail, he's very good. You'll find NPCs, adventures, items, maps, and more goodness then you ever expected waiting for you in the archives. Well worth reading and I look forward to when the author is able to pick it back up. Updates: Sixteen post per month.

Updates: 27 times a month.

EN World: A great place to start finding out what's happening in the hobby today. While the author doesn't often go in depth on the articles he links to, he does make an effort to find the information that many of us would be in the dark without. Great place to start your reading experience as he continues to break important news stories in the hobby on a regular basis. Updates: Often three times a week, though on occasion the number will rise.

Esoteric Order of Role-Players, the: This blog, from the same author that brought you the RPG Corner, is a treat. Unlike so many other blogs on here this one is almost exclusively devoted to live play sessions of the Pendragon RPG.

This creative blog, on the other hand, looks at things from the perspective of our inspiration for our games, and in particular, the films that inspire us. Clever and thoughtful, this blog will add some new perspective on the games and movies we love. Updates: Dark since February 21, 2014.

Murky Murky: Role-playing Advice and Fiction I really enjoy this blog as much for the writing style as for the pedantic way that the author drops his vocabulary about like some egotistical shithead telling you all about how they had dinner with such and such celebrity last night.

S

Stacey's Geek Blog: This very new blog (started on May 23, 2014) has already begun to find a nice niche in a crowded field. The author has made a concerted effort to talk about, and review, the things that interest him as the come. So far we've seen video game reviews, book reviews, and a commentary on what brought the author back to role-playing games. A good start and one I sincerly hope the author can keep up!

Sword and Backpack: While not a traditional blog this fantastic tumbler will have you working your way through the archives being inspired time and time again. Updates: Three times a month.

Updates: 69 posts a month!

Sycarion Diversions: Really digging this fascinating blog by an author who has clearly developed their own voice.

System sans Setting: This design blog tends to be heavy on mechanics and light on narrative. It smartly written and well reasoned but its singular focus can make for dry reading at times. Updates: Five entries a month.

Telcanter's Receding Rules: This OSR blog tends to be a resource laden honey hole.

Teleleli: I don't know how many people are aware of this blog but I can honestly tell that it isn't enough. This blog will change how you think about your setting and it will challenge you to up your game in every way imaginable. Really one of the must reads every time it updates. Updates: Fifteen posts a month.

Tenfootpole.org: A cantankerous blog that skewers about 90% of all the products it reviews (and it only reviews). Often the author can be spot on, but there are times when it goes too far. I don't buy a lot, but when I do I check here for the criticisms of the products I'm going to be buying. Updates: Eight times a month.

The Warlock's Homebrew: An OSR blog that moves across the entire gamut of topics that might come up in a Dungeons and Dragons style game; but those are not the entries that hold my attention the most. When the author describes the events of their epic campaign in those fantastic session wrap-ups I find myself utterly enraptured with the thing. Updates: One post this year.

Wasted Lands, the: A blog that is essentially dead. The archives are filled with great stuff and the author can write his rear off. I wish the blog got more attention, but I can't fault a man for living his dream. Updates: Dark since April 12, 2014.

Weird Opera: A fun, meandering blog that tends focus on most everything related to the hobby. Inventive and clever. A good place to start in the archives is Orc Babies and you'll know the tenor of this blog from the get go. Updates: Dark since February 20, 2014.

What a Horrible Night for a Curse: An OSR blog that tends to be a fun and engaging read. You'll find more good here then bad on most any day. Recently the author has been exploring the Mentzer Basic set and the series is well worth the read. Updates: Fifteen posts a month.

Windsor Gaming Resource: While this blog is mostly directed at its local community there is a lot to see here as the author will post reviews, tips, and open invites to bring people to games they've never played before. If you're in the area, you should be following this blog. Updates: Five times a month.

Wine and Savages: This blog has more going on then you can shake a stick at; it's smart and resource heavy. You'll find a lot worth reading and adding to your own campaigns here. Updates: Thirteen posts a month.

Wishful Gaming: I really like this blog. The author is smart and can really write. Do yourself a favor and add this one to your reading pile. Updates: Nine posts a month.

Wombat's Gaming Blog of Iniquity: This blog is everything that you want in a blog. Great writing, smartly done resources, and an author who can crank out fantastic content. Well worth adding to your personal blog roll. Updates: Four posts a month. 

Word of Stelios, the:  A new experiment by the mind who brought you d20 Dark Ages. This blog is a fun trip and I'm loving the current story, "If I were a Lawnmower." Give this blog a chance and you won't be sorry. Updates: Eleven posts a month.

Worlds Galore: This blog has really blossomed over the last year as the author seems to have found their voice. Really worth reading and can't wait to see where this fantastic blog goes in the future. Updates: Twelve posts a month.

Wraith of Zombie's Blog: This incredibly creative blog will provide you with some fantastic materials that you'll want to put into your own game as soon as possible. Some things to look forward to: a great setting created by the author, wonderfully inventive tables, and a sense of humor that is well placed. Updates: Four posts a month.

X

No blogs found that begin with the letter X 

Y

Yog Blogsoth: This blog has more great monsters and fluff than many other blogs can even hope to have. Loving the archives and lost four hours to them earlier today. Updates: Nine posts a month.

Your Dungeon is Suck: While this blog can really antagonize people by savaging them out in the wilds of the internet, there are times when it not only makes a valid point but launches a pertinent if not profanity laden attack on people the rest of us shy away from attacking. This blog is not work safe and it is not for everybody. Updates: Two times a month. ADULT CONTENT WARNING

Z

Zenopus Archives: One of my favorite blogs. The author is smart, and has an investigative mind that will often turn over stones that you'd otherwise miss entirely. Currently he's exploring the Holmes Basic draft from the original source. A fascinating read for anyone interested in the early history of the hobby. Updates: Six posts per month.

Zombie Cowboy's Game Blog: An interesting blog that tends to have a very strong horror bent. Really a lot of fun to read, and every time I get caught up I wish there was more to read. Updates: Dark since April 9, 2014.

A Few Closing Notes

Update schedules: For all updates schedules I totaled all post published this year and divided them by 5 (as I was working on the majority of the project during May). I then rounded up. So if your actual average was 2.6 then I set your number at 3. This was done both for convenience and to reflect the ever changing nature of blog posting. 

Active blogs: By comparison to the last roll call list this year's grouping is far more active. Most "Dark" blogs are only out a month from having posted while last year's group would have blogs a year or more out of date. The most obvious reason for this higher level of activity is the upcoming release of Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition.

Most all of us are talking about it.

Total number of blogs on this list.

  2. One day I hope to have my 'lil seedling of a blog on this list :) http://ilive4crits.blogspot.com Initially it was just a bunch of game recaps/play reports but I'm trying to shift towards playing "differently". For example, my last two write-ups have been how my daughter and I have been running tabletop RPG's in local parks. Hope to have a play in public post soon as well!

  3. Wow what a great list!

  7. Thanks for adding Raging Owlbear. I'm hoping to average posting about twice per week, if I can keep up with that pace... once a week at minimum.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If I've got any advice on how to keep up the posting average it's what Erik Tenkar told me, and it's held true, is that if you think about your posts throughout the day you'll be able to get them written when you get home. It's how I've been able to increase my post count and, I think, the quality as well.

      Either way I look forward to seeing what you've got in the future!

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the advice!

      I'm also planning to pre-write some (less time sensitive) articles so I can have a backlog to post from (I wish blogspot had content scheduling), but its hard to resist putting all my content out as soon as it leaves my head. I need to pace myself for the lean times. :)

      Delete
    3. It actually does! On the right hand side of the post screen there is a button that has the word schedule. If you click on it, it has two options, "Automatic" and "Set Date and Time." Click on Set Date and Time and it will give you a calendar and a dropdown list with times in 30 min intervals. All you have to do is click on the date you want to publish and set the time!

      If there's anything else I can help you with just let me know and I'll do my best to help you.

  17. This list is so impressive. I can't like it enough.

    On a personal note, if you're gonna check out Dan and Sally's Digital Domain, come by on Fridays. That's when Five Things on a Friday comes out, and that's generally the focal point of my blogging week.

    Byeond that:
    I recap of my triathlon training on Mondays. Tuesdays feature original work, either D&D homebrew or fiction. Lately that's been chapters out of "The Return of Dr. Necropolis". Saturdays are usually a round-up of stuff I see on Twitter. Other days are catch-as-catch-can.

  19. May as well throw mine on the list: http://thehydradm.wordpress.com.

    These days I only update it when I think I've got something pretty comprehensive and important worth sharing, so I'm somewhere in the vicinity of .5 updates per month, which is quite rarely. It isn't a dead blog, though.

    Over time the topic matter has progressed from sort of D&D specifics a few years ago to broader tabletop game design and GMing related stuff more recently.
