Open Game Table was made possible by dozens of participating RPG blogs and the combined efforts of over 70 authors, artists, editors, and fans. It's a true community effort. A peer reviewed, vetted collection of the very best in RPG blogging.
"Open Game Table is exactly what the busy gamer needs, a collection of the best of the best available online..." -- Julie Dawson, Bards & Sages Magazine review of Volume 2.
"I found myself enraptured by the thoughts and ideas in the collection, some I agreed with, others I outright disagreed with but that was what made it so exciting, it got me thinking..." - review of Volume 2 by Roberto M at Stargazer's World.
"...there is something for everyone in here, from the hoariest grognard to the indie designer to the new arrival looking to expand their horizons..."-- Satyre's Fame & Fortune Blog on Volume 2.
WIRED.com's GeekDad blog says Volume 1 is "... a treasure trove. A tome worth killing a few orcs for." and "The kind of brain stimulus role players need, diverse and quality content."
Bards & Sages Fantasy Review says "Open Game Table, Volume 1 is the reference guide equivalent of a Deck of Many Things, ... you can draw from it again and again."
Open Game Table, Volume 2 brings that same level of excellence back to the table, and never misses a roll.
