Just what do I think I'm doing?

Since the Saga Edition of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game came out, I've been looking for a good source of information about the game. Preferably, it would feature product announcements, reviews, gameplay tips, that kind of thing. Maybe the site would even feature some new content, such as stat conversions from previous games or original creations. And it would be super-cool if it encouraged the development of a community of Star Wars RPG gamers.

Well, I never found such a site. I mean, there are lots of Star Wars blogs, but not so much on the gaming. The Wizards of the Coast official Star Wars RPG site gets occasional updates, but not often enough to satisfy me (and it doesn't offer an RSS feed to simplify reading in subscription form, as I like to do in the awesome Google Reader). And there are even some Star Wars gaming sites, but still I don't see one with the sort of one-stop-shopping I'm looking for. Maybe Google Reader has just made me lazy.

So I'm going to take a shot at putting such a site together myself. I plan to have a humble start, just some news tracking at first (and whatever game-related babbling I can't stop myself from adding). But if you like what you see here, post comments to let me know. Positive reinforcement will make me work harder!

Thanks, Sterling. I had seen SWRPGNetwork before, but it doesn't seem to be frequently updated. However, I hadn't checked out their forums, which I will now.

Your blog, however, is totally new to me (and I love the name, Delusions of Grandeur). Thanks for letting me know about it.
