How many links....
« Reply #13 on: June 01, 2003, 01:47:25 AM »
I think I have 125 favorites in the gaming section.
This includes things about super hero games, pulps and pulp style games, game construction, world backgrounds, interesting free games, and so on...

I have yet to edit that section and make sure all those links are still active.  

So everyone else is not a link pack rat?  I thought all gamers were, as there are always sites that have useful information and things.  

So after mopping up CPs brains, do the rest of you have some favored links?

You know, I think making CPs head explode or leak has become a new past time for me.

This is possibly one of the creepiest curveballs you can throw at players that I've ever seen.

And it is agyris.net.

You should really try that one above. It's still under construction, and isn't very far, but I bet you that if you check back in a few weeks they'll have something.

This is the mighty, kick-ass Thor Antrim's site:

http://thor.mirtna.org/index.html

While not strictly pen-and-paper RPG related, it's hilariously funny.
Plus, you should visit it as penance for not donating money to him when he was going through his Time 'o' Troubles (Detailed on the sight.). Geez, you people. I donated $40 to the Save Thor fund and you won't even visit his website. What times we live in.
