    Eclipse Phase: Panopticon v1

    From the website (http://www.eclipsephase.com/)

    Panopticon surveys three areas of the Eclipse Phase setting:
    • Ubiquitous surveillance and sousveillance—living in a transparent society
    • The inner workings of space habitats—and how to hack them
    • Uplifts and smart animals—their scientific and cultural impacts plus new morphs, gear, habitat rules, and more!

    Congratulations! As of today, Pen & Paper Games has attracted over fifteen thousands players to join our community. That's an amazing accomplishment considering we only opened our doors some four and a half years ago or so with very little advertising at all. And you, the community here at P&PG, have a lot to do with that. In the last year, right after referrals from Google, "Friend" has been the top referral source for new members who find P&PG. That says a lot, and I thank you all!

    15000 + 1

    Fifteen thousand members and counting...

    Greetings, all!

    I've been working with Wolfgang Baur recently on some web related projects. For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to meet Wolfgang before, he's the "Kobold-in-Chief" for Open Design LLC and the editor-in-chief for the Kobold Quarterly magazine. He's also an immanently approachable, all around nice guy. So, when I hit him up about passing on some sweet discounts to our members here at P&PG, he was more than amenable. (score!)

    Until the end of this week, March 19th, you can save 50% off your subscription to Kobold Quarterly!

    Award-winning Kobold Quarterly gives you great 4E D&D and Pathfinder options, adventures, maps, and monsters---and now you can pick up a PDF subscription for half the cover price, just $12 per year. Or if you love having the issue show up at your door, subscribe to the printed edition, and you can order a free PDF of any back issue.

    Just include code P4N+P4P3R in the discounts field during checkout to take advantage of the PDF subscription at half price, or use FR33PDF for the free back issue with any print+PDF subscription. (Please, new subscriptions only.)

    This offer ends March 19!

    Your subscription starts with the current issue and includes the 100-page Summer issue. So, get on over there and subscribe today!

    You may have noticed a few changes to the forums in the last few weeks. A couple forums, like the Product Reviews & Discussions section have been merged with others, while other have been retired completely. I've also moved the Player Registry, and Campaign Invitations to the very top of the forum list, highlighting one of the chief purposes of the site and making it easier for new folks to figure out and navigate. The overall goal is to streamline the forums and make it easier for people to find the content they are looking for. To that end, if you have any suggestions, please send them my way.

    Also this month, the forums have gotten a few minor, but very cool, upgrades...

    Member Profile Page Customization
    Yep, the ability to customize your profile is back. This feature disappeared some time ago when we moved to vBulletin 4, but they have finally got it back in. You can check it out by clicking on the "Customize Profile" button when viewing your profile. Please, for the love of all things holy, try not to make anything too ... gaudy.

    What's New Changes
    One thing that has bothered me for a long time is that when you use the "What's New?" button on the navbar, it would only show new posts by default and never any different content types together. With these latest updates, finally, What's New? will behave like it should, giving you a list of all new posts, articles, and blogs. You can also configure the What's New feed to show you the latest group messages by going to your Settings > General Settings and changing the User Customization options -- near the bottom. There you can add or remove different content types from the What's New feed.

    Facebook Integration

    This is probably one of the coolest new features. You can now link your P&PG account with your Facebook login. Once you've connected your accounts up, your logins will automatically be synched. If you are logged into Facebook, you can automatically log in to P&PG by clicking the Facebook Connect button at the top right of the header. You'll also be able to automatically post status updates when you post a new blog, article, comment, or post. I've tried it out, and I definitely like it.

    While you're messing around in Facebook, by the way, be sure to stop by and "Like" our P&PG Facebook page at www.facebook.com/penandpapergames. This is a great way to be able to get updates about the latest news here at P&PG directly in your Facebook feed. Then please spread the word by suggesting our page to your friends.

    Thanks all and enjoy!
