OOC (Out Of Character)



Rants and random thoughts on gaming, from the perspective of a female "real roleplayer" with a sense of humor.




I know that I have not been exactly forthcoming with updates over the past months, and for that, I apologize.  This is partially due to the intrusion of real life, and partially due to my new freelance writing job at Gamegrene.com.  If you want to read things I’ve written, you can usually find a brand-spanking-new article of mine posted over there every two weeks or so.  I won’t stop updating here, but articles at Gamegrene will be more frequent (since they are giving me deadlines and paying me and stuff).  Thanks for supporting Revenge Of The Gamer Chick!
