• Meanwhile, in the community...



    It's been a busy, busy few months around here. PDCs, WKOs, Faerun Under Siege, Worlds Finest, PDC States, WKO round 2, TMNT coming up, along with Civil War. There's just a lot to talk about, and sometimes we are just carried away by talking about it. However, we should also take a minute to look around and see the things that are happening around the TRP community. To that note, here are some interesting things that have cropped up on our forums and blogs!

    To start us off, let's talk about where folks are playing Dice Masters online, now that Vassal isn't working.
    Ctuchik has started an IRC channel to coordinate players.
    Dice Masters Online is also a great group to coordinate online play through.
    Both of these methods utilize Google Hangouts to play, and would need a mic and webcam to utilize, but other than that, the method works just as well as playing live.

    Next up we have several set collection apps and sites that are keeping updated to the latest sets.
    For Android there is The Transition Zone app for tracking your sets and searching cards.
    For iOS we have Sidekicks and Sunday Morning Comix League apps.
    For your web browser, we have dm.retrobox.eu and dicemastersdb.com.
    In addition Dicemasters DB has started offering articles and set reviews through their website, check them out they have some interesting reads.

    Speaking of reads, we have a slew of great contributors doing massive work on our Blog section. Specifically, users Dicedicekitty and Mactavius have been dropping articles every few days these last few weeks. Everything competitive prize news to simple card analyses. We also have well known users Necromanticer and Wargfn dropping some hefty articles these past few weeks, including Necro's Worlds Finest set review and Wargfn's break down of the Control Archetype. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all the blog articles posted this month, there are more that I haven't mentioned but go check them out, the quality and quantity is spectacular and amazing!

    Lastly, if you know anyone that's producing great content for Dice Masters, please encourage them to post a link below or on our blog section. We love seeing the community grow and love watching, reading and listening to these amazing contributors. Thanks to all of you guys for all you do to contribute to our community!

      I would be remiss if I didn't point out that http://dicemastersdecks.com/ is also available via web browser, considering their generosity.

      Edit: forgot to mention the closed group Dice Masters Discussions on FB (https://www.facebook.com/groups/346417275561127/). Lots of good stuff going on there.

      Oh, absolutely, there is also the closed group Dice Masters Unlimited and I hear a new app on iOS called Dice Master. I unfortunately can't keep on top of everyone, but please, everyone chime in here with anything I missed.

      As always, the more them merrier because no one thing is right for everyone and we want as many folks as possible hyped about Dice Masters!

      I'd like to take this opportunity to shamelessly self-promote my Dicemasters related blog, found here: britrollersix.wordpress.com

      I started it just last month and in it I've been writing about a variety of subjects including sharing my team building process, re-capping events I've attended, and providing general commentary on the British Dicemasters experience.

      Speaking of the British experience - there's also a growing community over here that often communicates through the Facebook group 'UK Dice Masters Players' that some may want to check out...
