Community - ...and now for something completely different

Today was a nice relaxing day spent catching up on some reading. While doing so I noticed that a couple of blogs that I enjoy have fewer followers than my own.

I don't mean to brag about my massive following of thirty some souls, far from it. Thirty some followers is laughable, not that I care much anyway but I would like to thank you all for coming here and reading my ramblings. What's the best way to do that, you ask? Well, maybe by sharing a bit.

So without further delay I direct you to something completely different, Wampus Country and Carapace King.

Wampus Country takes DnD into the 1800's, granted it's an 1800's with trolls and whatnot but hey thats what makes it particularly interesting to me. Erik has put a lot of thought and effort into his campaign setting and it really shows. It is also fairly unmined territory ever since Boot Hill. I very much enjoy his efforts and highly recommend the blog.

Next up is Carapace King by Christopher, a bit harder to describe, but here goes, think of an era when metal is scarce and giant insects and their corpses are not. Weapons and other things are manufactured from their chitinous exoskeletons.

As you can hopefully tell by my inadequate descriptions both of these blogs give the community something quite different from the norm and both are fertile idea mines for any DM. Enjoy their hard work!

  1. Thanks for the mention! You're a gentleman and a scholar. I try to describe my campaign as Dark Sun with less heavy metal and more trees, or Nausicaa without the guns, planes, and allegory.
