I love BGG and find a wealth of information here.

The ability to catalogue my games is a great help to track my collection (especially when it comes to maintaining a list for insurance purposes).

I also use the database to record all of my games played and to keep track of friends and family through the Geek Buddy system. I read most Geek Lists and have added comments to a number of forums.

However, I have approximately 250 roleplaying items that I'd love to catalogue and track in a manner similar to my board and miniatures games.

There was once a rumour that a sister site, roleplayinggeek.com, was to be set up... are there still plans for this site?

I believe Aldie owns RPGgeek.com, but is just way too swamped to even get started.

in the meantime, check out WWW.RPG.NET to sate your cravings...its where I spent all my time (and a good amount of money) before coming here...

rpggeek.com is out there, but it's always just said "Coming Soon!"

I'm with you on this -- I estimate I have over 800 roleplaying items and I really wish there was a place as snazzy as bgg where I could catalog it all. (Of course I realize I could just do it myself in MS Access or whatever, but...)

I have the same issue and would like to keep all games in the same place. FWIW, I din't see why we don't let them in. Enough games blur the lines anyway (Tribes for instance) and more will do so in the future.

Yeah, it would be neat, but I am thankful the RPGs are, for the most part, not on this site.

Ohmigoodness! So many people had kittens when we 'let' the wargamers in the door. You have no idea how many people walk up to me and say, "The 'Geek used to be kewl, but now it's completely unuseable 'cuz there are all these stoopid wargames that I don't care about cluttering up the game lists."

Can you even imagine what kinda backlash there would be if we started having Puerto Rico or Euphrat und Tigris essentially equated to D&D 4th edition's 633th module about the Scourge of Swordcoast?

RPGGeek.com is perhaps down the road. Someday. But I wouldn't look for it anytime soon. If nothing else, there are viable options available to RPG'ers, but not for BG'ers (prior to us, of course arrrh )

So there is going to be a site about anti-tank grenade launcher's?

Sounds kind of boring

I always assumed that the RPGGeek data would be completely separate, but if you are thinking about combining them (eventually), please at least make sure the interface keeps them separate.

War games and board games are fundamentally similar. RPGs are a whole different animal (except for a few crossover products).

BTW, while I skip over most war game laden content, just like I skip over children's games, I do enjoy the contributions and perspective of the war gamers on the site. Some people might not like it, but I think it was the right thing to do.

Would RPG players also have a unique perspective to offer? Perhaps, but I think former and current RPG players are already well represented on the site.
