022 RPG Wikis and Dissemination of Info

We start out talking about how Brett organizes his campaign info using a wiki and then slide into disseminating campaign information using social media. How do you manage getting information to your players?

Episode 22 Show Agenda

Announcements

Gamehole NewsThe Rodneys!The what? Yes, The Rodneys. This is the name for our just launched Gamehole Con game design award. If you look at any of our annual logos, you will see an armored fellow squaring off against some foe. At Gamehole Con command central, we have always called that guy, Sir Rodney. So, that will be the name of our game design awards.As this will be our first year offering this award, it will be limited to two categories – RPG Adventure and Board Game. We are partnering with our friends at The Game Crafter to run this contest. The long and the short of it is that the winner in each category will receive a $100 cash prize among other prizes and will receive an award created for us by our friends at Albion Swords. This is pretty cool people! For all of the details, please click here.

Random Encounter

Brett’s thoughts to responses to episode 21 on gender:

All good stuff and I really like the approaches that our listeners told us about.  And I like that everyone kept the discussion reasonable and above name calling (except for Chad – I’ll kill his next 5 characters in petty vengeance).

Topics of Discussion

What are you using to organize your gaming?

Tools for the GM

  • Brett’s use of a Wiki
    • Our own wiki site
    • Also used Obsidian Portal
  • G+ Communities
    • One for the group
    • One for each campaign
    • FB could also be used – a buddy of Brett’s uses FB

Die Roll – 2-4 misc points we want to bring up at end of cast. Should be short and sweet, could be a plug, something to check out, etc. Limited time to spout off.
