Who To Follow In Tabletop RPGs On Twitter; Twitter 10th Anniversary Edition

I posted a list like this a few years ago, and it seemed pretty popular. However, time passes - so it's time for a new list, especially since today is Twitter's 10 year anniversary! This list is for those who use Twitter, and is designed to give you a "starter set" of tabletop RPG accounts you can follow. It's not exhaustive; I'm keeping down to a manageable number, with a mix of game companies, prolific bloggers, designers, and so on, pulled from the folks I myself follow. Sometimes a company will have an official account, and its employees also have individual accounts - I haven't attempted to list them all. Feel free to share who you're following in the comments!


I was going to include a section on bloggers, commentators, reporters, etc., but I ran out of time. Keep an eye on this page, as I'll likely come back and add a new section later!

As a side note - I'm aware that the list 'misses' several thousand RPG folks; listing them all is too great a task for me, but these are the ones I tend to interact with. It's a little current/ex D&D/WotC/TSR centric. But please do share your favourites in the comments.

[h=4]It's Me![/h]

  • Morrus. That's me. This is the 'official' (as much as that means anything) EN World account. I tweet about tabletop gaming news, along with assorted other geeky subjects. Most EN World news items get tweeted, as do some items which I haven't specifically written an article about. I try to cover as much major tabletop RPG news as I can. Follow me for D&D news, Pathfinder news, general tabletop gaming news, news about WOIN, Kickstarters, industry stuff, and other topics like space, sci-fi, Doctor Who, superheroes, and various assorted interests. Follow me!

A comprehensive list, for most everyone. I'd also recommend many of those from GeekandSundry. People like Matthewmercer deserve an applaud for the work they've done in the RPG community.
+1 To whoever wrote the Ed Greenwood one. ;)


Not that anyone cares. (This is a rather old topic by internet standards) But I have recently started a project known as The Crystarium in which I'll be creating videos on all things roleplaying. The goal is to unite the fandoms of video game and tabletop RPGs in a way that exposes everyone to things they may not have known about. Right now as I'm still working on the first video (learning everything about it from scratch at this point, getting a team together such as musician and artist etc), I have created a twitter account that serves to build the core fanbase here [MENTION=68379]Cry[/MENTION]stariumNet . We also have a site www.crystarium.net in which I'll be accepting D&D 5e video game related homebrew content to host on the site. I've created some templates for everyone to download.

It's a big ambitious project I've wanted to do for several years, and I find now that I have enough time to put into it. I'm not expecting much to come from it, but hopefully it'll bring some folks from the videogame genre over to tabletop games, and possibly introduce some tabletop players to a video game series they may enjoy. Definitely more to come (this is the first post I have made about it... ever)

tldr; Twitter focusing on Tabletop AND Videogame RPGs here @ CrystariumNet
