February is the month of love. For many it engenders images of chocolates, snuggling by the fireside, and rampant fornication. Not all of us are so lucky to have that special someone, however, and we make do with what we’ve got.
Instead of chocolates, we pull out the old dice bag. Instead of snuggling by the fire, we park our rump around the table among our gaming friends. And instead of fornication, we enjoy the pleasure found in pretending to be capable warriors and adventurers saving the day.
We all know the big roleplaying games: Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, maybe GURPS or RIFTS (If your DM hated you). They get a lot of attention and love on the internet. That’s not what this month’s blog carnival is for.
This month of February I invite you to gather round the campfire with your obscure indie rpgs and your sleeper hits and your imported foreign rpgs with funny dice. I invite you to gush about your love for these less well-known games, create homebrew content and share it, or tell a story about a session you where in playing these games. I invite you to pimp out your favorite roleplaying game, the one you could never find players for and settled for DND even though you really wanted to play Paranoia or Call of Cthulu.
Go forth and commence the pimping. Just please make sure to link back here and/or comment this post so I can include you in the month-end roundup.
And hey, while you’re at it why don’t you take a look at the last blog carnival: New Beginnings!
