I can't help but wonder "How many of these topics have be unknowingly rehashed and recast by the RPG community over the years? In print, online, in blogs, where ever?"Readers have probably noticed that my posting frequency has fallen off, and I think here Jonathan nails one of the big reasons why. I hate the feeling that I'm creating something that has been created before, but there's so much content out there that it's a monstrous pain to find out whether my clever new post idea has been done.
That's probably also why the only parts of my blog I still feel compelled to write are the campaign log posts and the Weekly What the Heck (shameless plug - go comment on this week's WWTH). I was thinking about blogging tonight about the superhero character idea I had this afternoon, but I'm sure dozens of others have come up with a long-range area-effect flame-throwing hero named Hwacha, and they probably did theirs right after last week's Mythbusters episode instead of waiting a week.
I love Jonathan's idea of a PubRPG, though I don't see how such a thing would actually get created.
