Common Room Forums update - 12 Publishers and 16 Blogs Listed so Far


This community never ceases to amaze me. In less than 24 hours 12 publishers, 16 blogs and 1 podcast have signed up at The Common Room, a new forum for publishers, bloggers, podcasters and content creators to meet and greet and the rest of the OSR to find and converse with the creators in the OSR. It's a place where review copies of products will exchange hands, links to reviews will be posted and artists and writers will get to showcase their wares.

It also hoped that in the future it will serve as a fairly complete listing of the publishers, blogs and podcasts in our hobby. Of course, the more that participate in it, the greater use it will be for all.

If you're a publisher whose release schedule justifies the need your own forum or if you just need a place to converse with your customer base, reach out to me at tenkarsDOTtavern at that gmail thing, and will set you up with your own section in the forum. You'll still need to put up a post in the Publishers Forum introducing yourself and your company and you'll be able to include a shortcut to your forum section in that post.

Tell me what other types of sections you think we need in The Common Room Forums. What's missing? What's needed to serve the community better?

As a side note, we probably really do need a small rectangular banner that can be used to showcase The Common Room in blog sidebars.

  4. Gaming Ballistic qualify? My OSR creds are a bit light but there's stuff there, and I've been known to run and play some stuff.

    1. it's more Old School Gaming than OSR. As a GURPer, you certainly qualify ;)

    2. I've held a resentment against GURPS ever since I was 11 and a kid at school had a copy and, being shy back then, I worked up the courage to ask if I could borrow it for the evening and he said no. The nerve! :)

      Gaming Ballistic is fantastic, though.

  5. This community never ceases to amaze me. And this is exactly why: DIY creators, fans, players, all together in the mix -- because each of us is all of the above.

    Thank you, Erik. I'll be there this afternoon when I'm not running off to work.
