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.

Who else would you like to see join RPGsite?

An idea I had from another thread. Pretty simple. List suggestions of people you'd like to see join this forum. Who would make it interesting?

I'm going to start:

Dan Davenport

First, I just love his reviews. They are balanced, detailed and objective. This guy gives you a great idea of a game, even if you do not agree with his conclusions. I find he's a helpful reviewer and as a poster, I find him generally just as helpful and pleasant.

I'd like to see Dan, as well (for the same reasons that you mention and because he often serves as a voice of reason in #RPGnet).

I also wouldn't mind seeing former RPGenetter Justin Bacon (the only guy other than Dan whose reviews I read regularly).

And Gareth Skarka (this was a guy who I once traded threats of physical violence with via email, but after working with him at RPGNow and gettign some perspectiv on his personal life back in those days, I found him to be a really great guy who was merely going through a bad spell back in 2001-ish).

Finally, I'd like to see S. John Ross and/or Bruce Baugh join up, as they both have some unique insider perspective into how large/successful companies operate (and because I know that they would drive certain posters here crazy in very amusing ways).

[Edit: Almost everybody else that I have an interest in hearing from in the online RPG community already posts here.]

Oooo. . . good call! Let me add Jurgen Hubert to my list, while I'm thinking about it (unless he already posts here).

(apologies for the BP bias, but thats where I came from)

Darth Tang.  Not only does he have a fantastically detailed approach to RPG campaigns which I could never hope to emulate in a thousand years, his off topic stories are bloody interesting as well.

And he's a copper in Texas.  I just wonder if he and Nox live in the same area(cue evil laughter).

Also SteveD and Bailywolf.  Two of the most prolific RPG idea minds out there.

P.S. Jdrakeh - S.John Ross does post here.

TrippyHippy would no doubt add value, I'll add others as I think of them.

I doubt Dan would sadly, I think Bruce for all I personally value his contributions would be mad to.

The guy that springs to my mind is Paul Elliott (AKA Mithras), general historical gaming god, and (having gamed with him) a bloody nice bloke...

Actually, Cessna...

No, hear me out.

Off list, and when not modding, he's a laid back, chilled kinda guy (having corresonded with him a little).  I think he'd benefit from spending some time as 'just some poster on some message board.'

Of course, I can imagine a shitload of people with axes to grind making that a TAD difficult...:D

Also Third Level Fighter, unless of course you are Third Level Fighter, in which case welcome aboard :D

But yes, Mithras and Third Level Fighter would make great additions.

And they could be very right.
BTW, Cessna used to comment and frequent the Pundit´s, to "keep grounded".

I´m pretty sure he´s a Lurker here.

Dan Davenport, PaladinCA, & Bailywolf are all good ones.  I'd also like to see Grubman, whom I believe someone said was scared off--true/false?

Malcolm Sheppard used to post here as Shooting Dice, it would be cool if he started posting here again. Malcolm, the "Frank Black" of rpg forums :D
