This is an ongoing series in which I highlight what I think were the best D&D-related blogs each month. This is the article for August 2012. The criteria for this honor is:
- The blog must be on the WotC Blog site.
- It cannot be made by a featured or staff blogger (the point is to highlight blogs that might otherwise go unnoticed).
- It cannot be made in the blogs for a specific group.
- It must pertain to D&D (of any edition).
- It must be in English.
- It must not be reposted from or pushing content on another site.
- It must tickle my fancy.
While we remain in playtest phase, I'm segregating playtest reports into a separate list. I've also added a new category -- Chroniclers of Blogging -- for those who post entertaining synopses, pics, or video of their games in a blog. Please take a look at the great work of these Heroes and Chroniclers of Blogging and Heroes of Playtesting!
