Kant on Aesthetics (4): Taste
Squirrels Better Communicators Than You

Blast from the Past

Last week, I was shocked to receive an email asking me the following:

I'm helping to update the RPG database at rpg.geekdo.com, and we were trying to confirm that you are the same Chris Bateman who was a contributor to the GamesMaster International magazine in England in the 1990's.  We're trying to see if your contributions to Discordia Inc. games should be an independent entry or combined with "your" entry.

I never mention my work for GamesMaster International to anyone, but this was in fact my first ever paid job - as a freelance writer for this magazine. Discordia Inc. was my first games company - a non-profit organisation publishing tabletop RPGs and boardgames, although we never quite managed to afford to publish any boardgames!

The RPG database at Geekdo.com is an offshoot of BoardGameGeek, and has only been running for six months. If, like me, you have a sordid past in tabletop role-playing games, I encourage you to stop by and check that your entries in the database are all present and correct.
