Following up on Wimwick’s thoughts On the RPG Bloggers Network from this morning, I wanted to add a few additional things to the discussion. To the guys behind the scenes, thank you. Your hard work did not go unnoticed. The RPG Bloggers Network has been very good to Dungeon’s Master, and we’d like to think that we’ve returned the favour by driving readers back to the Network. I credit our involvement in the Network as one of the big keys to our early success.
The RPG blogging community is a fantastic fraternity of enthusiastic gamers who feel so passionately about RPGs that they use their free time to write article, create resources, and share their ideas and experiences with other gamers. We may not all see eye-to-eye on every topic, but debates that stem from these disagreement often give all of us a better understanding of a given situation.
Regardless of what the RPG Bloggers Network ends up becoming after it’s handed off to a new team, here at Dungeon’s Master we want to maintain this terrific camaraderie that we’ve become a part of over the past year. In the comments and emails driving this debate/discussion some bloggers are saying farewell as they plan to bow out of the Network no matter how it ends up.
My fear is that some of the sites that I enjoy visiting regularly, sites that are run by people with great ideas and an excellent grasp on RPGs, may not be as readily discovered by new readers. With this in mind I ask everyone to keep the community alive by updating your blogroll. If you like a site, add them to your blogroll. I’m sure they’d happily return the favour. That being said, Dungeon’s Master will be looking to add a number of sites to our blogroll over the next couple of weeks. If you like what you read when you visit us, please feel free to add us to your blogroll. This exchange of links will help keep the community together even if the RPG Bloggers Network goes away or changes into something that prompts current members to leave.
Even though the changes to the RPG Bloggers Network are significant and will impact many of us, life goes on. The Dungeon’s Master team is going to keep doing what we’ve been doing all along. We’ll keep publishing new articles on 4e D&D and do whatever we can to make your D&D experience better.
