It’s been a while since our last forum roundup, and there’s one piece of news and two threads I’d like to share:

Not Dead Yet: We now have a forum for non-gaming discussion. I’ve held off on creating a forum like this for ages, but I think now is the right time. Enjoy!

Psychology and Problem Solving in RPGs: TT member Rust opened up a can of worms with this thread, and there are strong opinions on all sides of the issue that he raised: Is a “hunt and peck” approach to tackling adventures a sign of lazy players?

Coming back to GMing after a very, very long time: New forum member Restless needs your help: He hasn’t GMed in ages, and he’s not sure how to get back into the groove. I usually try to avoid fragmenting discussion like this, but I know there’s a lot of non-overlap between folks who like to comment here and folks who are members of the forums. If you’ve got suggestions for Restless (and other GMs who’ve been away from the screen for years), share away!

I’d also like to welcome TT member maikeru back from his crazy surgery. It’s good to have you back, Michael!

(I’ll be in Michigan from Thursday, September 20th through Monday, September 24th. As always, I’ve cued up a post for every day that I’ll be gone, but I probably won’t be able to respond to comments or emails. Have fun, and I’ll see you on Tuesday! — Martin)
