Figured this would be a sensible thread to mention this. I'm running a little project to make sure we don't have another lull in games like what's cropped up the last few years. Every month I'm running a Barebones game. This is to make it easier to setup consistently, make sure everyone's on equal footing in not having to look up a theme, and to let people get experience/work off rust in playing the game in it's purest form, for lack of a less pretentious description.
Currently they are fairly small games and I'm aiming to open up sign-ups the first day of every month. With that in mind sign-ups for the second game of this project opened up a few days ago, but sign-ups have come in slow. If you're interested, there's a link here
