The Overlooked Blogs Collection - August 15, 2010

Today I had one of those "Holy Crap!  I've overlooked this for how long?"  Sometimes it just takes a few minutes to see where some of your blog's traffic is coming from to find other blogs that you yourself have overlooked.


Such is Joseph Browning's Blog for Expeditious Retreat Press.  I've bought his products in the past, I've enjoyed reading the House of Blue men, and I'm seriously considering picking up Sorcery and Super Science! even though I have no idea when, let along if, I'd ever get a chance to run it.

Lo and behold, I'm checking where Tenkar's Tavern gets some of its traffic from, and I see http://josephbrowning.blogspot.com/.  That was the Holy Crap moment, I never even realized he had a blog.  Should have clicked yesterday when we had the OneBookShelf sales number discussion, but I can be a bit slow at times.

Do yourself a favor and give it a peek.  It's full of good stuff you can steal for just about any OSR RPG, and you can read up on the development of Sorcery and Super Science!. Pretty interesting stuff.



  1. I've been flying under the radar for a while since Sorcery & Super Science wasn't out yet and, well, as I'd named the blog after that I didn't have that much to talk about besides development aspects. Now that we're up and running with S&SS I'll be mixing Sorcery & Super Science stuff with our OSR stuff - they're the main two things we're doing right now. Thanks for the post, I really appreciate it.

  2. My pleasure Joe. I need to spend some serious time catching up on your blog's posts ;)

  3. The S&SS system is very streamlined and easy to learn and it is only 48 pages long. I keep puzzling over how such a detailed game was put in such a small package.

  4. Yep, it's a pretty piece of work. I have to get out from under a small pile of reviews before I can give it a solid read. I really do need some sick time ;)
