Chainmail Bikini made #12 in this list of Top 50 RPG websites over at Dungeon Mastering. Sadly, Shawn and I were just edged out of the #11 spot by the no-talent hackjob rival comic DM of the Rings.
I’m currently playing in a D&D 3.5 campaign, as opposed to going to all the trouble of running one. This has made me very lazy, so I’m not reading many roleplaying sites these days. When the pendulum swings back to my chair I’ll start reading again. Probably with some sort of anxiety. I was happy to see Treasure Tables and Chatty DM both placed high on the list. I enjoy both sites, and as we all know “Top X” lists like this one only exist to make us feel good about choices we’ve already made.
Anyway. Number twelve. Yay.
Silent Hill Turbo HD II
I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.
This is Why We Can’t Have Short Criticism
Here's how this site grew from short essays to novel-length quasi-analytical retrospectives.
MMO Population Problems
Computers keep getting more powerful. So why do the population caps for massively multiplayer games stay about the same?
Zenimax vs. Facebook
This series explores the troubled history of VR and the strange lawsuit between Zenimax publishing and Facebook.
Punishing The Internet for Sharing
Why make millions on your video game when you could be making HUNDREDS on frivolous copyright claims?

Damn that no talent hack! If I ever find that guy’s website/blog, I swear I’m just going to go over and give him a piece of my mind! How dare he!
Hope I’ve got the piece to spare.
Thank you for the kind words Shamus. You are among those that made me do the jump in the very crowded Blog arena… and it’s been quite the fun ride so far…
Please note that I recently moved the blog to http://chattydm.net so I could host my own blog and have space to add stuff like a forum and wikis for some of my future projects.
Cheers…. keep the funny stories and the geeky comments coming!
Having read your entire campaign on here, I’m really curious what kind of campaign does it for you as a player. What’s the story? And what kind of character does Shamus end up playing when he’s not the DM?
Congrats. You deserve it.
The campaign is a continuation of the characters from the posts your read. I’m playing Endo the Monk. My brother seems to be running a game which will close out the setting and retire the characters, if they survive.
Any chance we’ll get to read (at length) about this campaign when it’s finished? :)
Chainmail Bikini is WAY better than DM of the Rings. It has chainmail. And a bikini.
I agree with Ryan. I really liked those posts about your last campaign. As a non-gamer I found them fascinating.
I wouldn’t say that Chainmail Bikini is better than DM of the Rings.
CB has the advantage over DMotR, in that with their own artist, they have the flexibility to do whatever they want, since they’re not relying on other media to provide ‘shots’ of what they need.
This does not change the fact that DMotR was innovative and brilliant in the slightest.
Whoa! You are playing again, Shamus? Could you at least record them? I am sure some suck… er, I mean enthusiasts will write transcriptions for them.
Casper: Sorry, it’s just not possible. I’m playing at my brother’s house, and there’s no way I can drag all of my equipment over there.
But since people are interested, I’ll probably do a synopsis once the tale is done so people can read how the story ended.
Go for it.
That’s cool Shamus. I have a buddy who always used to run our games, and he loved it when I stepped up to run. You probably feel like you are on vacation :)
I on the other hand am enjoying getting to be creative and learning to think on the fly about 10 things at once, lol. I am also applying some techniques I learned from reading your DM campaign.
Our game is based on the Fallout series, using the Spycraft 2.0 rules with half blatant Fallout rip-offs and half my own material. I am not ambition enough on my first full campaign to make an entire new setting. I agree though, next time you run a campaign please record it! Or maybe just conference me in, eh? eh?
Oh, and grats on the #12!
Shamus, did you notice you beat Order of the Stick?
Nice concise list of decent RPG sites there…
Congrats on being listed, especially in the top 25%.
Well done! Although I have to admit I haven’t heard of most of the sites on that list. :)
