Seasons greetings, roleplayers! Here we are at the end of another year. RoleCraft is into the third year at WarCry Network, and as long as you keep reading, I’ll keep writing. As the final days of 2009 slip away, I’d like to do a recap of RoleCraft articles and topics covered this year. Placing them here in one easily referenced list helps keep you from having to mess with searching the Archives and trudging through a whole years’ worth of articles. It also makes it easier for you to Favorite a single article to use as a directory to the entire RoleCraft column, if you so choose.

In case you’re new to this column, or may have missed the earlier Review pieces, here are the links:
