The new rant, updated on every 8th, 18th, and 28th of the month, is right below this post. Enjoy! But before you do, I have a quick announcement...
I'm still sort of looking for a way to free up some time to deal with my other responsibilities. So here's the deal. I've mentioned this before, but I'm more than willing to post guest rants on this blog, provided they're intelligent, well-written, and engaging to read (meaning that I'm holding my guest rants to a way higher standard than I do myself). So far only 1 person has ever done so, but I think he put together a very good rant, and I'm eager to see more, especially since guest rants could really free up some time for me.
So to get to the point: From now until I say otherwise, if you write an RPG rant to feature on this blog--and it's good enough that I post it--you get a free RPG from me. I get to decide which game, but I promise it'll be good (at least in my opinion). And hey, it's free. So if you've got something about RPGs to say, send it on over to me! Get a free RPG! Make my life easier! We all win.
1. Rant must be on RPGs, or a specific RPG. If it is on an RPG I don't know, I should at least be able to verify what you're saying about it to some reasonable extent.
2. Rant must meet my standards. I don't have to agree with it--in fact, I quite enjoy the prospect of having my opinions challenged--but I do have to deem it good. If I reject your rant, I may explain my reasons, but I don't have to.
3. The free game you get is picked by me. It will almost certainly be a game provided by GOG.com.
4. Submit any guest rants to the_rpgenius at hotmail dot com.
That's about it, I reckon. So...get writing! Be funny! Insightful! Biting! Empowering! Or whatever!
