I’m pleased to announce that Treasure Tables has joined the 9rules Network.

TT was one of the 509 sites that applied for membership during the network’s most recent round of submissions, and I’m thrilled to have become part of this nifty community. Coupled with having my link posted on Slashdot, the past week has been pretty exciting for TT!

Apart from displaying the pretty leaf logo, 9rules places no restrictions on their member sites (something that was, and is, very important to me). If you enjoyed TT before, you’ll enjoy it as a part of 9rules — I’ll still be posting the same mix of tips, ideas, advice and other resources for GMs.

Joining 9rules, however, means that TT is now part of a community of bloggers dedicated to making their blogs better — and that’s something I can really get behind!

I joined 9rules because I really like their approach — here’s a snippet from their “About the 9rules Network” page:

The 9rules Network is about building a community of high quality websites as well as a community of highly discerning readers.

To the best of my knowledge, Treasure Tables is the first — and possibly the only — RPG blog to join the 9rules Network. This is a great opportunity for me to not only raise the profile of this blog — which will bring in more readers, more commenters and more GMs interested in discussing the hobby that we’re all so passionate about — but also to raise the profile of RPG blogging in general.

One of my goals with this blog has always been to build a community of smart, passionate GMs who enjoy sharing ideas — and membership in 9rules is another way to help that community continue to grow.

That, in a nutshell, is why I joined the 9rules Network. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, let me know in the comments!
