Open Game Table Available Now

In case you've missed the news on one of the bajillion other RPG blogs that have 1000 times the readers I do, the Open Game Table blog anthology is now available from Lulu Marketplace and

While the article I submitted wasn't accepted, Jennifer (ChaoticBlackSheep, who illustrates my blog here) was selected as one of the original four artists illustrating the book (I think by the time it was done they'd added two or three more illustrators).
Open Game Table aims to bridge the gap between the RPG blogging community and the broader table-top gaming fan base by showcasing the best talent in the RPG blogosphere. Within these pages are 47 blog posts from 32 top-quality RPG blogs, plus a Foreword written by RPG luminary Wolfgang Baur.

Packed with the best in RPG blogging and over 60 illustrations, this book is Pure Gold. The anthology chapters cover a wide variety of topics for fans of all table-top roleplaying games, including:
  1. Play Style;
  2. Game Play;
  3. Characters & Players;
  4. Monsters & NPCs;
  5. Encounters, Settings, and Locations;
  6. Adventure Design;
  7. Campaign Setting Design;
  8. Classes, Action, and Equipment;
  9. RPG History & Commentary; and
  10. The RPG Toolbox.
This anthology is the result of the hard work of nearly 100 volunteers, authors, editors, judges, artists, and designers. A true grass roots effort; it is a tour de force of the RPG blogging universe.
So sayeth the head editor.
