Roleplay Domain and Scormus’ Love for the NBI

Globe Icon

The NBI has the best supporters. How do I know? Because I JUST DO. Our writers are passionate and you know what that means. Hot, steamy and even kinky things with keyboards …I’m talking TRUE love for games. These people are amazing. And often strange. One of them is Scormus of Roleplay Domain, a small community for RPG guides, forum and commentary. He’s got some words for you about why he supports the NBI: So, why does this project matter? If you are a fan of gaming in general, as I am, then you probably find yourself looking for gaming information on the internet, at least once in a while. Maybe you’re looking for information about your favorite game’s newest patch, or trying to find a cool raiding build for your character, or maybe you just want to find out about...

A Word from Our Awesome Sponsors

Globe Icon

The Godmother at Alt:ernative Chat has some words of wisdom for you: The thing about Advice is… well, it’s like having an Opinion, which is pretty fundamental for any successful Blogger. Both these things with capital letters are important and at the same time tricky things to pin down: what suits one person won’t fit another. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean it’ll work for the next individual you speak to, and this makes trying to persuade people that Blogging is for them often a pretty thankless task. However, there is one thing that overcomes all of these potential issues, that will allow you to get away with a lot of stuff you might normally be frowned on for entertaining. That quality is ENTHUSIASM, and it is my specialist subject. I know an awful lot about staying cheerful as...

nbi_icon

Oh, us bloggers love to write, don’t we? I’m sure that’s not how many of us like to think of this endeavor; we’re just doing brain dumps about our favorite hobby, expressing passion for games that love us back, or having conversations with each other about everything from trolling in League of Legends to high scores in Cook Serve Delicious! Giving our hard earned advice is somewhat of a reward, isn’t it? We are the resident vets with experience in this area. Our expectations have been properly adjusted and we’ve learned to live with one another, even when we disagree or dislike one another. All part of life as a blogger. But even we need advice when it comes to giving advice. I’m going to pass on some advice that can help us give better advice. When you write for...
