“Ok, time to start this campaign. You all meet… on the internet.”
(This has been editted since original posting to better reflect the current state of Ready To Role)
Thanks for taking the time to check out Ready To Role! I’ve always had the desire to start up my own gaming and tabletop website, and in December 2016 I made the leap to start working on it. This post originally went up in March after some trial runs and articles to test my commitment, and I feel like now we’re at a good place. Things didn’t turn out quite as planned from the start, with the scrapping of two podcasts (one of which never even got started), the addition of the talented Andrew writing about Star Wars: Destiny and Star Wars: X-Wing, the addition of Craig working on the site’s appearance, logos, and video frames (and anything else that you think looks nice), and some changes to the kind of content I found people caring about. Below is a short summary of each tag and what you can expect to find there, and I hope you enjoy what you find! If you do, be sure to follow us on our social media- just knowing we have people who enjoy our content helps drive us to keep creating more and more for all of you! -Robb
In the Ready Reviews we review completed games and gaming products, mostly board games and standalone CCGs. Occasionally an RPG supplement or system will sneak in here, and you can expect the odd tabletop-related video game as well every once in a great while.
This is where we try to convince you that our opinions are right. Well, rather this is where we share our opinions on different trends or ideas in gaming. We prominently feature Wizard of the Coast’s Unearthed Arcana supplements for D&D here since they aren’t fully published materials but do require feedback to get to that stage!
This is where you can find custom magic items, monsters, and tips for creating your own homebrew content! Check here if you want a nice (or nasty) surprise for your players who snoop around the Monster Manual or other books that they shouldn’t be! Everything here will be D&D 5e by default unless otherwise noted.
Originally part of Homebrew Hall, our series of Adventure Seeds for you to use prove to be one of our most popular series featured here, to the point that we’ve decided to give them a dedicated place on the website. If you need inspiration or a quick adventure idea, be sure to check these out.
When Andrew joined and brought his experience with both Destiny and X-Wing, I realized I neglected a suitable category for his content. I created a combined Wargaming/Card Games category, but if interest continues to grow these may separate. In the meantime, this is where you can find Andrew’s articles about the aforementioned games as well as any other games in these genres that we talk about.
And lastly, I need a catchall for anything I write that doesn’t fall square into the above categories. Like this post, for example.
