This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

did you see they are talking about including all "strategy gaming," not just WotC stuff?  Interesting...

Seems that way.

Neat sight, though. Really. ::nods::

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

The promotion for this was very cool. You guys missed most of it. I considered posting about it.

OK, so certain of us get this mysterious foam brain with an encrypted message on it.

It says something like

MOCTSD
RAZIWT
AXAME
ELG

So you figure that part out. And you send in an email to the right place.
The alien brain sends back a long quiz. The quiz is multiple choice, but it has alphabetic answers that leed you to gleemax.com

Now there's a photo contest/scavenger hunt thingy using Flickr.

I'm over there, anyhow.

I'm confused.  There doesn't actualyl seem to be anything there, or anyway to sign up for this service, yet there's apparently people who have joined it, and have managed to earn scores.

Yeah, I was thinking toothpaste or Greedo's slow witted cousin (who apparently will be appearing in the super special blu-ray edition of Star Wars: A New Hope).

I swear, it seems like more and more companies are using that random brand generator the pharmaceutical industry uses these days.

As I said in the other thread:

I didn't get Magic, so obviously I don't get people talking about Magic...
