A Couple of Swashbuckling Blogs to Check Out

A Danish gamer named Christian, who goes by the handle Battle_Mad_Ronin at Big Purple, started a Tumblr of actual play reports for his The Queen's Cavaliers campaign, The First of Their Names. There are five "sessions" described so far, in abundant detail; I'd like to see more about how the rules work, a 'behind the scenes' view of the actual play reports. I think this is really helpful for a new game with novel mechanics.

Tom, who goes by the handle BluSponge at Big Purple, blogs at . . . and a Brace of Pistols, a blog "dedicated to swashbuckling, fantasy, and horror gaming." Tom plays Witch Hunter: The Invisible World, and includes some great game-specific materials for that game, but he also writes about gaming and refereeing; his post, "The Art of Letting Go," is a good read.

Please show these guys some love and some clicks.
