February RPG Blog Carnival: How and Where I Write and/or Game Prep

February RPG Blog Carnival: How and Where I Write and/or Game Prep Leicester’s Ramble is hosting February’s RPG Blog Carnival, and this month’s topic is “How and Where You Write and/or Game Prep.” Given my current projects–two RPG campaigns and one unfinished novel–I figured I had plenty to write about for this one. Where I Write/Prep Game My boyfriend and I thought it was worth the extra $100 plus a month to get a two bedroom apartment.

Kickstarter: Wild Card Creator

Kickstarter: Wild Card Creator I have to admit that I know the designer personally (he succeeded me as president of the Wittenberg Role-playing Guild and is an excellent addition to the table as both a GM and player), but even so his latest project is just plain awesome. More fully-integrated and streamlined than online Savage Worlds Character Generators, less expensive than having to add on multiple settings piecemeal, and compatible across Windows, Mac and Linux (with tablet functionality as a stretch goal), the Wild Card Creator is a golden addition to the Savage product lines and hopefully...
