OSR Blogs, Product Announcements, and Reviews

With the recent release of White Star: White Box Science Fiction Roleplaying and Petty Gods: Revised & Expanded Edition, I have noticed some complaints about OSR blog posts about these games (on threads in RPG.net and even theRPGSite.com). These complaints are that the posts about these games are softpetal posts instead of hard-hitting...

RetroRoleplaying Blog Comment Problems?

RetroRoleplaying Blog Comment Problems?

There haven’t been any comments to my last few posts. I just figured that I haven’t been posting regularly and had said anything comment-worthy in my last few posts. However, LibraryLass reported a comment problem on our forum: Are you aware that the blog’s got restricted comments right now?. No, I was not...

Finally on Google Plus

Coming Soon: A New RetroRoleplaying Message Board

Long time readers may remember that RetroRoleplaying once had a message board. Unfortunately, after I finished Microlite74, I did not use it much — and no one else did either. Shortly after the beginning of the year, spammers broke the spam protection and I just shut the board down rather than fight them....

Delay of Game: Reality Intrudes

Delay of Game: Reality Intrudes

I’ve been missing the past week or so and probably will be for another week or two. My 90 year old mother came down with pneumonia last week and passed away yesterday. I haven’t been in much of a mood for gaming or discussing gaming and it will probably take me a couple...
