Announcing the RPG Herald

Things may seem to be going quiet on this blog but my blogging has been taking up a notch lately.

I believed that I have mentioned before that aside from maintaining this blog, as a personal journal about my gaming activities in where I live, I'm also a contributor to the Purple Pawn, which is a general gaming news site which covers boardgames, miniatures, RPGs and card games.

Since I've been mainly contributing RPG news that I come across to the site, I've been blogging more and more about RPG-related news and have got my blogging pace back again. However that meant that I have less time invested on this site, since I've been trying to keep track of RPG news (and believe me, sometimes there's so many things that can happen in the RPG world in one day).

So I've been tinkering with the idea about posting more RPG news on this blog but feeling that RPG news did not really mesh well with what I have intended to do with this blog, I thought that I should start another site, dedicated just for RPG news.

After some giving it some thought, I finally decided to create a new blog, the RPG Herald, which aims to be a one-spot supplier of RPG-related news for RPG gamers.

The site would be mainly focused on RPG news, previews of upcoming products and hopefully score some interviews with designers, developers and industry players to discuss about RPG-related issues.

At the moment, I don't know what would the launch of RPG Herald mean to this blog, but it is clear that RPG Herald would be more inclined towards informing readers while this blog would remain as a personal space to talk about my personal gaming life.

Although I don't intend to post up reviews of RPG products on the RPG Herald, to maintain some integrity on the reporting, but I am open to review those products on this blog since I would be more comfortable in expressing my biased opinions here.

To any game publishers, bloggers, podcasters etc who are reading this, I welcome you to send any press releases or information that you have about game products, contests, conventions or game news that you need a free shout-out for to me at my email.

My email address is

For gamers and readers of this blog, I encourage you to check out RPG Herald. I try to cover all sorts of news regardless of system and genre, so you might read something new about what is going on in the gaming scene (perhaps near you) and would thank you for your support.

I will be planning to apply the RPG Herald into the RPG Bloggers Network in the future since the application requirement says that the blog has to be active for at least 3 months.

In the meantime, you can keep up to date with the latest postings of the RPG Herald through my Twitter account if you haven't already followed me.

Once you've checked out the site, feel free to drop any comments or feedback on how you would to like to see the site improve here, and I'll see what I can do.

I like to thank you all for your support throughout these years of my blogging journey and hope that you would continue to do so for my new endeavor.

I am looking forward to following this new blog, and am especially curious to hear an Eastern view of RPGs. I Like what I see here so far!

Do you have a banner ad we can add to our sites?
