Greetings dear readers! Michael recently wrote about our efforts to revitalize the blog, and I think we’re off to a good start. He invited our readers to discuss the types of posts and topics they enjoyed, and in one such comment Voidman said he liked one of my earlier pieces about using technology at the gaming table. Thank you for the kind words; it’s a pleasure to have you, and so many others as our readers.

So we come to this, day 30, the penultimate day of #RPGaDay 2016. So much fun! As I’ve said before, August has been a rollercoaster.

An auspicious month, but very busy; everything seems to be going as planned now, and as everything draws to a close, we’re ready to end this challenge and I’m ready to get hitched. So let’s get this post out of the way!

Day 22 last year was about a perfect game environment, and while I went into some details of the amenities I would like, I did one of my sappy cop outs and said that my ideal place to game is where I can have fun with my friends… I still mean that, but this time around let’s take it seriously and map out my ideal RPG Crib!

After today there are only five days to go on this year’s #RPGaDay 2016! August has paradoxically seemed to fly by in some ways and just drag on in others. I’m writing these last posts as I get ready to take some days off and take a trip, the big news has to do with that. I’ll share the details with you before this series of posts is over, don’t worry. The topic today is hobbies, specifically hobbies that complement the hobby of role-playing games.
August 26: What hobbies go well with RPGs?
The official question list here explains further: “What other hobbies have beneficial effects in a roleplaying game group?”
