Radio Free Merctown

My name is Lloyd, and I’m the creator and community manager for the community of gamers and writers at Explorers Unlimited which has been a continuous home to play-by-post games for over a decade. Radio Free Merctown is a podcast created by and for members of that community and their interests. Gaming, role-playing games, various aspects of collaborative writing, we regularly cover all these topics and more on a monthly basis.

Explorers Unlimited

Explorers Unlimited (EU) is more than just another Play By Post website. It’s a community of gamers who are all avid fans of Palladium Books‘ many games, and roleplaying games of all types.

EU has evolved over the years through both trial and error, and user feedback. Augur created EU in 2005, and it has been in continuous operation ever since. Hundreds of players have come and gone as the vagaries of life have dictated, but the players most interested in quality roleplaying have stuck around. We try new rules changes to make the often problematic and clunky, old Palladium system work better to suit our needs, and we encourage user feedback with rewards and incentives to continue the process of improving quality and promoting positive roleplaying experiences in the community. Please recognize that EU’s implementation of new rules is done through user collaboration and a guided, democratic process of discussion and discovery. In the final analysis, EU is the product of those in the community who devote their time and creative energies into it. As with any other endeavor in life, you will get out of EU that which you put into it. Bring your best game, and your best writing, and game on!

Savage Rifts

Savage Rifts is a Play-By-Post home for the newly minted Savage Rifts role playing game. We game with the material created by Pinnacle Entertainment Group and the Savage Worlds rules-set.

Savage Rifts is a part of the Explorers Unlimited family, and is more than just another Play By Post website. It’s a community of gamers who are all avid fans of Palladium BooksRifts game setting, and roleplaying games of all types. We have extended this passion to savage levels with the start of Savage Rifts!

This is a quick guide to help new players go through the character creation process on Savage Rifts This will also go through the house rules and setting information.

Savage Rifts is still fairly new, so we expect to change through both trial and error and user feedback. However, Augur (formerly The Game Master) created EU in 2005, and Savage Rifts has benefited from this experience. We encourage user feedback with rewards and incentives to continue the process of improving quality and promoting positive roleplaying experiences in the community. Implementation of new rules is done through user collaboration and a guided, democratic process of discussion and discovery. In the final analysis, Savage Rifts is the product of those in the community who devote their time and creative energies into it. As with any other endeavor in life, you will get out of Savage Rifts that which you put into it. Bring your best game, and your best writing, and let’s get savage!

Crowd-Funded via Patreon

I’ve been very fortunate to be able to collaboratively create podcasts for the EU community’s little niche of the internet, but I’ll not rest on my laurels. I constantly seek out ways to grow the podcast within the EU membership, and expand the reach of the podcast to the rest of the gaming and Palladium Books communities. Before the podcast, I had already done this with the website itself for over a decade. This thing we build together, our conversation and family within the larger gaming culture, is my passion. Ultimately, everything I do, all the support I receive, somehow finds its way back into feeding this passion, growing this community, and making everything we do better.
