I just wanted to take a moment here and place an update--

I'm starting to get more traffic to my deviantART page, and daily I receive notification of individuals who favorite my posters. Currently, I have just over 70 posters on my deviantART page, while (at this time) I have 175 posters on this page. Generally, I choose what I consider to be the best posters from the SMP blog to go over to the dA page. However, if you see a poster on here that you believe would be a nice addition to the dA archive, please let me know, and I will make sure it gets over there (barring any unusual situations or conflicts with dA TOS).

Thanks for all of your kind words.

What We Learned From The RPG Cliche List, Part 1

Good morning all. Tomorrow starts my 6 day vacation up in the state of NYC. My wife and I are looking forward to relaxing and spending time with friends. So, with a week of inactivity ahead, I got together a thread of 9 posters for What We Learned, and these turned out pretty good.

For those of you who have never visited the Grand List of Console RPG Cliches, you must go there now. I've read the list at least a hundred times over the last few years, and it just gets funnier each time (mostly because I've played other games that fit some of the cliches). Anyways, I'm going to be doing a few series from this list with the approval of the site's owner, Mark Sachs. In fact, I've asked him to critique them, so I could change the posters with better examples in the future.

The first series involves a nine-part cliche that deals with the rules of Travelling in RPGs. The phrase of each poster comes either directly from the site, verbatim, or is paraphrased to fit in the space below. Therefore, the posters are only mine by creation--the images are from games and the phrases from the RPG Cliche list. But feel free to enjoy.

What We Learned From Chrono Trigger, Part 2

Here's Part Two of the collage started last week. Again, not the highest of quality--mostly just a quick riff on what's going on. A few keepers in the group, though.

I've got at least three great ideas lined up for the "What We Learned" series--however, I'm determined to increase the quality of my posters, so it may take some time before they come up. I can't promise this coming Tuesday, but I will try to have the first series up sometime next week.

So... here we are:
