We’re almost back to normal after Hurricane Sandy. We got power back Wednesday night, we got our landline, cable, and Internet late Thursday morning, and today the college where I work got power back after being down for most of this week. Easton, Pa. isn’t 100% yet; I have a few friends who still don’t … Read more
When Wizards of the Coast decided to kill the ill-fated (and ill-named) Gleemax project before it got out of alpha, a bunch of role-playing game bloggers stood up and said … who needs Gleemax? You want a gamer community … well we’ve got your community right here! Or words to that effect.
And yeah, Nuketown is there too.
One of the things I like best about the site is how it aggregates content — it’s pulls in stories into its home page and incorporates a rating mechanic as it does so. I haven’t found a page that aggregates those ratings into a big list, but I imagine that’s coming.
The Cosmic Cup now has a blog (the Cup being the Easton, Pa. coffee shop I frequent most). Not much there yet except for announcements about music and new coffee (but hey, I’m not complaining, seeing as how I like new music and love new coffee…).
Uncle Bear officially turned 10 years old last week. The venerable ursine is one of the few geek zines/blogs/sites/whatever-we’re-calling-ourselves-now to have survived from the year of Nuketown’s own genesis. Congratulations to Berin, and here’s to another 10 years of geekdom and gaming goodness!
I used to read a lot of webzines, but got out of the habit in the early 2000s when their numbers declined and my free time disintegrated. This month, in addition to striving to read more in general, I’ve specifically attempted to return to my old webzine ways. Antipodean SF features something you don’t see … Read more
I’ve been jumping around the blogosphere for the last few months, doggedly attempting to find good science fiction and libertarian blogs. I’ve found a few, which I’ve posted to Nuketown Links, but in all that time it never occurred to me to try and find blogs for one of my other great interests: role-playing games! … Read more
A while back I lamented the lack of speculative fiction Weblogs on the net (or at least, my inability to find them). Fortunately, someone out there heard my cry: Doyle Eldon Wilmoth, Jr, editor and publisher of SpecFicWorld.com, who noted that he’d put together a list of scifi blogs on his site. So naturally, I … Read more
Ogre Cave (www.ogrecave.com) is a multi-person blog offering news and commentary about speculative fiction gaming in its myriad incarnations, from board games to role-playing games to card games. The site’s updated several times a week (and occasionally, several times a day) with short news updates, such as White Wolf Games lawsuit trying to stop Sony’s … Read more
I’ve been listening to some 80s Internet radio stations at work recently (no doubt reaffirming my … eccentric … taste in music with certain individuals in my Dungeons & Dragons campaign) and I’ve been hearing some old classics like “Weird Science”, “She Blinded Me With Science” and “The Future’s So Bright I’ve Got To Wear … Read more
