Default Writing for RPGWatch

Thanks for all your offers.
Myrthos will sort this out when he finds the time … which isn't easy these days. So please be patient.

As I understand the keys mentioned in this thread are still available, unless mentioned otherwise.

I wouldn't rule out that we might take a chance with a relatively unknown forum member, if no veteran volunteers. So please wait for Myrthos' reaction. He'll decide one way or the other.

Okay. I'll contact you when I've played it for a couple of hours. Maybe at the weekend.

"Minor bugs" sounds fine. It's still a beta, so even bigger bugs could be expected.

er.. good? I wouldn't say my opinion aligns with the whole of this site's readers. Sometimes not even any of it. But I say how I see it, and why, and readers can make up their own minds as to what the thing I've described means to them. I follow the site guidelines for scoring rigidly (which still allows for some subjectivity of course), but the text is my own. It's subject to editorial rigour, which is also good, as it helps make sure that arguments are robust and reasoned.

I have wrote a few things for you guys in the past. Been awhile though.

If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.

All right I have a Desura key for any RPGWatch veteran interested in doing a review for Paper Sorcerer. PM me or leave a reply here.

Update: So not a single person is interested?

I'm buried in the Capital Wasteland. I typically spend a few hundred hours in Fallout, FNV, and Skyrim every year. I play Oblivion too, many years and that's another couple hundred. Joxer would be good for Paper Sorcerer and so would Alrik because this game has strong adventure game roots, IIRC.

Game also came out(or is coming out soon I am not sure) for tablets so Joxer might hate it before he even ties it.

I love writing, got a lot of spare time and would certainly take on a few games, especially the more darker ones that people tend to shy away from

Something that poofed past my head though, are we talking about games of our choice or games awaiting reviews/whatnot from rpgwatch? Either is fine

Could be both. I review quite a few games, but the darker ones are definitely not my personal preference. We're always looking for more people to be involved, but Myrthos is the boss and he makes the final decisions.

If God said it, then that settles it!!

FYI, I moved the creepy and gloomy games discussion to a new thread in General RPG, seems like a fun (hah) topic.

Sorry if it got a little out of topic, wasn't intended

You don't even have to get me keys for new games. I just like to write, and if you'll take my articles/insights on games I have in my inventory, I'd love to write for RPG Watch.

I'm sure they'll be happy to take your articles. I think that if you start writing a review, you might want to announce it here, and some might want to write small snippets to get a few different opinions on games…

Well I say welcome aboard the site needs more article writers. I recommend sending a PM to Myrthos as he makes the final decision. Don't make me beg.

I'm keeping a very close eye on world of darkness online, been following it for years and will continue doing so. I don't know how much it has been featured here, if at all. If you need/want someone to do some news articles (and eventually, hopefully impressions) on it I would love to do that.

I'm sure Couch would really appreciate some help with the news. PLEASE, go for it. Check in with Myrthos first and then ask Couch to show you the 'ropes'.
