Blog redesign

If you’ve been to the blog before this then you’ll have noticed that the design has recently changed, I’m currently giving serious thought to how the blog can be more useful for roleplayers going forward; part of this is getting the blog to load as quickly as possible even on computers with slightly lower specs, the previous theme used seemed to take an awful long time to load and looked a little cluttered so I’ve changed it over.

There will be more changes over the next few months and heading into the New Year, I hope you’ll stick with us and will give us your feedback.

1000 subscribers thank-you video

As you may or may not be aware Red Dice Diaries Youtube channel recently reached the landmark of 1000 subscribers (we’re actually a little bit past that now), we’re obviously over the moon about this and wanted to film a short video to thank everyone who has supported the channel 🙂

1000 subscribers on Youtube

I’m pleased to announce that my Red Dice Diaries Youtube Channel has now reached 1000 subscribers (it actually reached it last night, as of time of writing i’m slightly over); I do intend to record a proper thank you video incorporating some suggestions from members of the RPG Brigade (previously the Youtube RPG Brigade, the community that first encouraged me to create a channel), highlighting some of my favourite moments from RDD, talking about what I think i’ve learnt creating the channel and giving you a glimpse of what exciting stuff we have forthcoming for the channel (the expansion of this website being one of them).

Until i’ve got time to sit down and record the video I just wanted to put this post here to thank everyone who encouraged me to setup the channel, people i’ve gamed with online and everyone who has been supportive or offered constructive criticism as we’ve gone along (special props to Tim Harper who gave me some great advise about content when starting out and, along with several others, provided a great deal of encouragement and support) – I hope you’ve enjoyed the Red Dice Diaries ride so far, the future is looking bright with more to come in 2015/16.

Happy gaming to you all – wherever you are in the world 🙂
