Roleplayers rejoice! RPG Geek has two awesome exchanges happening right now and there is still time to get involved. First, is the RPG Math Trade and second, is the annual “Unbirthday Exchange” (think secret Santa in July). I am a regular participant in these trades and exchanges.

By my very nature I am a collector and to be collector one must be willing to purchase to trade for new items. I do both, but my prefer to trade. That is today’s topic of conversation, trading for new gaming stuff. For those that follow me on G+ or Twitter, you might have noticed…

RPG.net Love it or Hate it?

Yesterday, I blogged about RPGgeek.com and some of the things I have heard or seen about it over the past year. The feedback that I received on G+ was a real eye opener. It would appear that the interface is what bothers most people over anything else, so far at least. Today, let’s explore RPG.net….

RPGGeek.com – Love it or Hate it?

I am admittedly a huge fan of the website RPG Geek for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I believe in the sense of community that they are and have been creating since their inception.
