   Red Storm, Act 1  

[02/27/2003]   It's a rare occasion to see our site's reviewers hit the status of red reviewer - something that only two readers and two staffers have achieved in the section's history. Add two more readers to that list. Congratulations to Robust Stu and Phillipe Richer for their accomplishment of writing at least 30 reviews! For this update, let's hear it from one of our new prolific achievers:

Hi all, it's me again...Robust Stu. Well, I'm finally a red reviewer. The few, the proud. It's been an interesting ride, and I'm glad to have gone on it. Well, I guess I can take some time here to tell you about myself. I'm 23 years old and live in New York, where I work as a computer technician. On my free time, I like to play RPGs (obviously), watch classic wrestling, drink beer and see my girlfriend Robust Alison. I'm currently in the midst of writing my first movie (which I hope none of you ever see) and writing various fictional pieces. So the question I'm asking myself now as far as RPGamer goes is, where do I go from here? I enjoy writing reviews, but I think it's time for me to move on to other areas of contribution. I think I may start writing game guides or fan fiction sometime in the near future. I'll still write reviews every now and then, but you won't be seeing me every week anytime soon. Well, I guess I'll wrap this up, but I just wanted to say thanks to Amish, ASV, and Paws for running someplace I could use as an outlet for venting my frustrations from playing crappy RPGs and also my pleasure at playing the really good RPGs. Also, thanks to all the readers who have read and critiqued my reviews, I always enjoy hearing from readers, so feel free to keep the praise/flames coming. Take care all, and go write some reviews!

 Submission Booboos - New Templates...Again

   We have a new update template this week, plus a new review template as well. That's all, I'll elaborate more next week - and sorry for the long delay: I've had a stomach flu bug for the last three days that's been a severe inconvenience to say the least. Thanks for your patience, and feel free to nag us.
