WOIN WOIN needs some love

I've been doing some thinking on ways to help increase awareness of the What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. system and I've come to the realization that there aren't nearly enough reviews around the 'net. I've decided to see if I could change that a bit. Reviews are easy and help sell a system to someone who might be a little on the fence about a purchase. So, starting today, everyone go out and write a review for any WOIN product you've purchased, then come back to this post and share a link to your review. At the beginning of next month, around the 3rd, I'll choose someone randomly from all those that post a link and send that person a copy of the WOIN Gamemaster's Screen.

Great idea, and thanks! I think any actual plays and/or play reports and such would help get the word out as well.

That would work, too. I'm not especially familiar with other gaming sites where one might post play reports/story hour. Any suggestions?

I think posting it via social feeds would be one way to go. I like Google+ myself, and WOIN’s pretty non existent there. Just having people talking about their games, campaigns, what they’re enjoying would help, I’d think.

Rpg.net is popular with some folks. I think most WOIN content logically goes on the EnWorld forum, but if you’re not already looking for it or on the site, it’s under the radar.

Well, that was fun

Twitter would be good (#woinrpg). Streams are super good; there’s a couple out there. Reviews are great especially if not just on RPGNow. Fan sites and fan content is awesome. Articles are awesome.

I run my own blog dedicated to WOIN, see here - https://vampifanwoin.blogspot.com/
However I am more than happy to help out in any way I can. I do agree that WOIN should have more coverage. Oddly enough, I was planning on posting reviews of three of the latest N.E.W. supplements on my blog - The Moons of Boria, The Holds of Vendalyr and the Starship Recognition Manual.

I wrote two reviews, one for OLD and another for NEW on Amazon Spain (in spanish, obviously).

I just bought the GM Screen on drivethrough (great product, by the way) so I don't want to take part on the draw. I just did the reviews because you are right, this system is very interesting and very fun to play and it isn't appearing enough on RPG discussions.

By the way, I just rediscovered the judge Dredd comics and was happy to see that you have a 2000 AD expansion/module/book on the works. Good choice, that's one I'll buy fresh from the oven.

Thanks to all that took the time to play along by posting reviews of WOIN products. In return, I'll be choosing one reviewer at random on Saturday to receive a pdf gift. There's still time to add your name to the list of reviewers. Simply link here to a review you've posted online concerning any What's OLD is NEW product and I'll add your name to the list. Positive, negative, or indifferent doesn't matter. We all have our personal tastes and it's interesting to see others' takes on the same material. For you troubles, I've decided to broaden the random drawing: the chosen receipient may now choose any pdf from the WOIN catalog under the $10 mark. You can see the choices here:

[MENTION=6954588]knikpiw[/MENTION] You are the randomly chosen recipient of a WOIN pdf. Let me know which product you'd like from the link below and I'll get it to you as soon as possible.

Thanks to all those that posted reviews. And, [MENTION=6875102]Vampifan[/MENTION], I appreciate the review for Holds of Vendalyr. Thank you for the kind words.

I feel this was a very worthy venture and I was only too happy to take part.

@ M3Woods. It was a pleasure to review and give a shout out to the excellent work you put in to producing The Holds of Vendalyr. You have set the bar high for how future supplements in this range should look like.

To all who took part, thank you for spreading the word and to Knikpiw, congratulations on your win.

I know the contest is over, but I have just posted another review of two N.E.W. supplements on my blog - Starship Construction Manual and Starship Recognition Manual, which you can see here -

Thank you so much [MENTION=6855284]M3woods[/MENTION], really pushing us all to get WOIN known and it really works when you have such an active community here on Enworld.

Could I get the Starship Recognition Manual please, so much material in there that is so useful, and I'll be sure to leave a review for it too afterwards :)

I've been trying to convince my players that they should let me run a short adventure using O.L.D., but they don't like it being a little underpowered, in comparison to what we've been running for the last few years (D&D 5e, for reference). O.L.D. also needs some sandbox-y adventure paths; War of the Burning Sky, for all that I like it's themes, is too mass combat heavy, and Zeitgeist isn't sandbox-y enough (I've talked about this before, on other threads). Perhaps those To Slay a Dragon and To Slay a Vampire might be fitting, but I've yet to have the opportunity to read them!

I've been tempted to write one myself, actually, but don't really have the time! Never enough time!
