    Independent RPGs in Forums

    In addition to the current division of threads by game genre (horror, modern, fantasy, etc.), I wish there was a single permanent section in the Forums devoted to lesser-known and/or indie rpgs and storytelling games.

    Scattered around a dozen or so threads in the forums, I've discovered great recommendations, and even some play reports, of indie mainstays such as Sorcerer, Dogs in the Vineyard, Burning Wheel, etc., but it might be nice to have a single location to discuss them.

    As much as I like the old popular favorites, I wish more people knew about alternatives to D&D and WoD...

    Hey, you forgot to mention my WFRP and Traveller rpgs, Tamburlain.

    I second Tamburlain's motion.

    How could I have forgotten??

    If PaPG creates a section, you'll have to ride herd on those two, neither of which I've played.

    Agreed, and I've said as much around here for a long time to no good.

    For example, there is no place here to discuss a Star Wars game that is NOT D20 based, even though West End Games had the license for many years with a D6 system and that game is still enjoyed in many places.

    So the new section would be "Independent / Small Press Games?"

    I've also been interested in helping out some of the smaller indie game companies by hosting forums here for them. That section could have a sub-section for any particular games that would like to have their forums hosted here as well.

    Very cool how this thread is turning out. Just another example how cool P&PG is.

    That sounds perfect, actually. Esp. with Small Press as an equally important part of the equation.

    I would vote for this as well, and actually it could be a good place to exhibit games created by our members, if there are any. I personally am slowly working on a game in my free time, and I'd love a place to bounce ideas off folks.

    Thanks, Farcaster. I'm sure I speak for more than one person here when I say just let me know if I can help.
