Some time ago I reviewed the Dragon Warriors RPG here on Stargazer’s World. Alas Magnum Opus Press lost the license to produce the game a while ago and all Dragon Warriors products went out of print again. Luckily I was able to get a hardcopy of the core rules and several PDF products before that.
As I already mentioned in my review, Serpent King Games picked up the license and planned to rerelease the game in a revised edition. And since a few days, Dragon Warriors is available at DriveThruRPG again.
The revised edition incorporates all errata to the 2008 printing, but as far as I can tell it’s basically similar to the old edition. So if you already own the 2008 edition, you might not be interested to pick that game up.
Alas the PDF sets you back $20, which is a bit high for my taste. I think more people would give Dragon Warriors a try if it were available as a lower price. In times where you can get all Pathfinder core books for just $10, paying twice as much for a mostly black & white book seems a bit overpriced.
Aside from that I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who is into old-school gaming to check out this classic British roleplaying game.
I just got word from Third Eye Games’ Eloy Lasanta that they have an interesting project up on Kickstarter called Part-Time Gods. Part-Time Gods will be their third game line and will be a roleplaying game along the lines of “Nobilis” or “Scion”.
But I am sure Eloy can explain it better than I could do it:
If you are interested in learning more about that game, check out the Kickstarter project page, listen to episode 77 of “The Game’s The Thing” which features an interview with Eloy or check out this PDF which gives you a nice overview of the game.
So you’ve started your RPG blog but for some reason nobody is actually reading your stuff. Especially if you want people to read your posts and give some feedback this can be a very disheartening experience and it’s probably one of the main reasons why new blogs die after just a few weeks. So what can we do about this?
Regular content is the key
Having good and regular content is the most important thing in blogging. You can try all the tricks in the book but without content everything else is futile. Try to find a schedule you can work with and try to stick to it. If you have decided to post three times a week, try to do so, even if you don’t feel like blogging. Especially if you go on extended hiatus, people might lose interest in your blog. On the other hand, provide your readers with regular posts and they’ll come back for more.
