• Games Diner Site Updates

    I often update old material with additions and corrections. I place brief notices of changes within articles, though I’m not immune to forgetting; Moreover, readers have no way of knowing that some old page has been updated unless they visit the page. From here on, I’ll collect update notifications on this page, your one-stop destination to see what’s new (i.e., how little has changed. : / ) You’ll find this a link to this page under the “Diner Stuff” menu at top. Edits, etc. (going back to 2017 or so) A modest proposal: Friendlier character trait blocks in GURPS Edit 2021-07-22: Added notes (toward end) on making other content –…

  • Links

    This is an old list of links, finally pruned of dead branches in early 2020. Waaaay shorter now! Time to start building it up again. Please let me know of good gaming-related sites that should be added, using the contact form. (Sorry, I turned off the comment function on this page; it gets heavily bombarded by spammers.)  Oh, one small request to webmasters of older sites: There are still some sites out there rocking links to my old ancient domain, io.com. Please update those links to use www.gamesdiner.com. (Hmm . . . Unlike back when this page was first made, there are now so many sites, video channels, etc. etc. out…

  • Hello.

    The site is mostly reborn. The new platform (WordPress) presents many advantages – and clumsy weaknesses as well. One of note: the platform’s silly segregation of (blog) posts vs (non-blog) pages creates hassles, but I’m working through them. Many old bits (no-longer-relevant announcements, ancient polls, newsletter content, etc.) have been dropped. Forums are missing (if they’re to be restored, that’s a separate big job). User registration is inactive (and unneeded?). Old comments are generally intact, but a few may have gone AWOL. Page view counters are nuked entirely. (Kind of too bad; some pages had many tens of thousands of hits.) The “Related Posts” feature may or may not remain…

  • About

    General “about” stuff Where you are now This is T Bone’s Games Diner, the latest incarnation of a hoary old site. Purpose and/or slogan Dilettante Game Design and More: Role-playing game goodies for GURPS and other games. (But mostly GURPS and its offspring like Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.)

  • Away and back again

    Ack. I’ve been away from the website for over a month (and from posting anything at all for a long time); I’ve been away from the usual online haunts for at least that long, and even away from gaming for that long. Such is the busy life. (“You call that living!?”) First, a big thanks to a few kind souls who wrote to tell me that there was a problem with the Games Diner main page not displaying properly. Yep, there was trouble, and I think it’s fixed now. Again, thank you! If the site doesn’t work at any time, Dear Readers, please let me know – it’s much appreciated.…
