    If you recomend them, then absolutely! I have started putting short descriptions and such after them to help people sort and find within the various links.

    I've added and updated a couple of link, but mostly I have added short descriptions to most of the links and cleaned up the formatting.

    Still could use more links for things like inspiration and GM tools. So feel free to post any of your favorites.

    Added a link to Game Mastery 101. I've finally gotten the chance to read more than just his articles on Node Based Design. Jason is one of the most accessible intellectual in the gaming community. Well written articles that are thoughtful and clear and really provides a clear and in-depth analysis of many of RPG's critical considerations.

    If you've never read him, take a few minutes and pick out an article that sounds interesting, chances are, you'll be happy with the time you spend doing so.

    Added a link to an excellent discussion on Hazards from EnWorld. Really strongly suggested reading if you design encounters and adventures.

    Extra Credits YouTube channel; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCO...M1JavPCOr_Uydg

    Haven't watched any of them yet, but it comes recommended and looks promising. Will add it to the first posts after I get a chance to go through some of them or if someone else seconds the recommendation.

    I would like to offer a link for your Post two section "inspirations": this is the classic radio dramas from before television: http://www.oldradioworld.com/

    As a kid, my dad played me his father's copies of the Lone Ranger, Green Hornet, the Shadow, and X Minus One. These were stories not written to be read or TV shows to be watched, but 100% audio narrative. I learned a hell of a lot listening to them, like pacing, expression, how to provide details that help listeners imagine the scene, etc. X Minus One is particularly good for roleplaying inspiration. And when I first started GMing online I went back and re-listened to several of these to remind myself how to be a story teller in a purely audio medium. I suspect other people might get something from them too.


    On Extra Credits, most of their stuff is for video games, but they really do a great job of handling game design and game balance theory. I think many GMs would benefit from a lot of the videos they've put out.

    Thanks Gavin. I've added the link in the mentioned section. Let me know if you think the description should be other than what I wrote.

    I'm not sure what you are referring to with "On Extra Credits" as I did not see such a section on that website. Maybe I'm missing something?
