Don't be Shy, Ask Away.

Since it seems like most of the activities on the blog-o-sphere tend to die on the weekends I've decided to have a bit of fun and open up the blog to all comers. If you have a question on the blog, something I've covered, written, or drawn, or just want to get my thoughts on a subject that's been weighing on your mind here's the time and place to do it. 

I'll be collecting all of the questions asked here, on Google+, and in my contact box in a post that will go up Sunday morning. 

So don't be shy, ask away!


  1. I feel like, as the guy with the monster blog roll, you probably have a pretty good feel for the RPG blogosphere's pulse. I'm curious how you would profile us?

    How do we play? What fraction of the blogosphere is "new school" versus "old school"? How many people are playing AD&D, Pathfinder, 4e, Fate, etc? Are there bloggers for whom you really can't tell? What fraction of bloggers are also homebrewing their own systems?

    Who are we? This may be hard to tell from a blog, but what's the age range of the community? Gender balance? How are we distributed geographically? How many of the bloggers seem like, actually, pretty cool people that would be fun to run a game with -- or just grab a beer with?


  2. So, sandbox games. If the DM has everything planned out down to the end, does it necessarily follow that the DM has railroaded the campaign? Could it not be that the DM just knows the players so well that its possible to judge their actions, even tweak them using game events, without ever having to put up an invisible wall or telling the players they NEED to do a thing?

  3. Will you be continuing your analysis of the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth? I really enjoyed that first article.

  4. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    1. As much as he could I suppose. I'd have given you a post dedicated to your question but the whole affair ended Saturday night. :( Hopefully I'll do this again and you can jump in then!
