Usually kind to smaller man, Universe Man...

OK, I'm not that big headed. But my readership has been expanding lately, since I've been posting fairly regularly in the past couple weeks. So I thought I'd use my extremely minor celebrity to highlight a few bloggers I've been reading and find interesting that don't quite have the following I've got yet.

Sharing the wealth, as it were.

Of course, I'm not at a Chevsky, Rients, Raggi or Zak level of popularity, but I can try to help a bit. Here they are, some blogs you might not have heard of:

The Caffeinated Symposium is my buddy Dave's blog. He occasionally posts about gaming subjects, but more generally about literature and history. Always interesting reading there.

Once More Unto the Breach is Drance's blog about coming back to gaming after an absence, and all the fun stuff he's finding out about it.

The World of Onn is James Bobb's (IIRC he posts at Dragonsfoot as Aranion) blog about his game world, and his supplements for Swords and Wizardry. Again, a good one to check out.

Roles, Rules and Rolls is an interesting blog by Roger the GS, currently going through a system of color magic posts, which is way more ambitious than anything I've been trying to do (including my Flying Swordsmen RPG).

Forgotten Runes is Imredave's blog, currently featuring some sweet scans of maps from his original campaign (and reminding me that I need to start scanning my old maps for D&D and Star Frontiers).

5 Stone Games is a blog promoting accessories for Pathfinder, but with an Old School feel and love for the game. Good reading about taking the old gaming philosophies and marrying them to new school mechanics.

Alright, my son's bath is almost finished, time to wrap it up. Check out these blogs. There's some fun stuff awaiting you!


  1. Thanks for posting this Gwydon. I'm following a few of these already, but its always nice to get updates on what's going on in the blogosphere. :)

  2. Hey, man, thanks for the publicity! But now do I have to start worrying more and more about actually writing an interesting blog?!?! The old double-edged sword of life! Argh! Seriously, as the kids say these days, thanks for the shout out/props!

  3. Drance, don't worry about it. I've been limping along with mildly interesting content for a while now! You can too!

    Havard--You're welcome. I plan to do this every now and then, as I find more interesting blogs to follow.

  4. Thanks for pimping my blog, Den. Rock on.
