I’m looking at doing a Knights of the Dinner Table column on blogs, wikis and other sites dedicated to science fiction role-playing games. Of course this is a bit self serving, as I’m currently running two science fiction games (Star Wars: Saga Edition and The Day After Ragnarok) but it’s a niche that could use some attention. The sites don’t need to be exclusively science fiction, but some significant portion of their content should deal with the genre.
Keep in mind that I’ve done columns on Rogue Trader, Star Wars: Saga Edition, Gamma World, and Star Frontiers in the last year so I’m less likely to write about sites that deal with those games.
Here’s what I have so far.
- RPG Blog 2: Has a cool list of sci-fi RPGs.
- Post: 101 Science Fiction RPGs
- Stargazer’s World: Occasional posts about sci-fi RPGs.
- Traveller Maps: A collection of online maps for the Traveller RPG.
- Goblinoid Games: Starships & Spacemen: A retro reprint of a 1970s vintage science fiction RPG.
- Burning Empires: Web site for the sci-fi RPG.
- Race for the Galaxy (electronic version): Digital version of the excellent Rio Grande card game
- Star Wars RPG Index: Complete, searchable index of the entire Saga Edition line.
- Project Rho: A good world-building and stellar cartography resource.
