March RPG Bloggers Carnival Roundup!

And so the good Rev Mike seems to have disappeared off of the face of the Earth these last few months which is a shame. It has also meant that we have been without a roundup for that months carnival and so without further ado I present to you the March roundup on Mike’s behalf.

During March he hosted the RPG Bloggers Network’s carnival which was on the topic of war. Obviously we discussed what was it good for but as you can see from the list below many of you did more than just that.

My personal favourites this time around are Greywulf’s Megadungeon Wars which sound like a blast. I’ve no idea why but it reminds me of a subterranean version of Bloodbowl that I recall White Dwarf publishing back in the mists of time and Mike Bourke’s work over at Campaign Mastery

Yet again it was a busy month but have a good read of as many as you can as each one is worth it’s weight in gold.

    Thanks! Great collection and thanks to all who took part – and best wishes to the good Reverend wherever he may be.

  2. Lunatyk says:

    I was wondering when this the roundup would be online…

    hopefully, nothing bad happened to the Reverend…

    and I should point out your missed this post :P
    (which I think is the better of the two)

  3. Bob says:

    I hadn’t realised there were so many entries for that month! Some really good stuff in there.

  4. Bob says:

    I spent last night one handed C&Ping the posts on a touchpad so whilst I tried to get them all posted correctly I was sure I’d mess up a few.

    Thanks for the catch :)

    If anyone sees any more that that should be there or links that aren’t working correctly please let me know. I’ll give them another check later on just in case.

    Here’s ours:

    Rev’s fine, he’s on Twitter updating all the time, I think he just got caught up in school and work that prevented him from blogging.

  6. Bob says:

    Glad to hear he’s still about!

    I’ll add your entry to the list…

  7. Questing GM says:

    Ack. This roundup reminded me that I should finish up on the Races at War series, probably going to include the PHB2 races as well.

    Glad to hear that Rev is ok which also means that I don’t have him on Twitter.
