Let me know in the comments if you like this format better, or the straight list format I did last week. It takes a bit more time to do the straight list, but if that is what folks prefer then I’ll go back to that next week.

Thanks for hanging out, until next time.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
