In which our intrepid hero explores the “other” side of gaming.

Off work again today.

Although I guessed that, by law of averages, there must be a gay roleplaying demographic out there, it hadn’t struck me as a specific niche market.

They’ve also got links to the entire infamous Collect Call of Cathulhu episode of The Real Ghostbusters, the awesomely kickarse Road to Mithril Hall and much, much more.

It’s almost enough to make a wyrm turn…
