D&D banned at the University of Akron!

Once upon a time. Maybe. Q.v. post #13 here. (Where people who find it exciting to outsmart and outwait fish make fun of D&D…)

I was Googlin’ Akron and D&D, wondering if there are any blogs or gaming related sites I should be aware of/linked to, since I have a bee in my bonnet about connecting a little to the local scene (& doing it virtually rather than IRL suits my introversion).

Item: Dennis Crabapple McClain is local.  I guess he had an exhibit last year complete with lectures; I didn’t hear about it.  And another a couple months ago.  Missed that too.  😦  Wait, I guess DCM is now Justine Mara Anderson.  I can’t keep up.  But apparently she was born in Akron and still lives in the area.  She has several blogs but they do not appear to be about art (Some might be NSFW too).


The “Goth Bonnie & Clyde” of Youngstown, Ohio, passed under my radar.  A news clipping (and several links relevant to my interests) are here at ‘Slack Bastard’.

So far all I’ve scraped together as a collection of the sites of Akron-area gamers is below.  A hitch in my strategy is that blogs and  personal web sites don’t often have any text that identifies a locale.   So, if you are an Akron-area blogger or have a site or forum or whatever that you’d like linked to at a “Rubber City Gaming” type page, let me know!  Leave a comment or drop an email to mike /spot/ monaco (a-in-a-circle) yahoo {full stop} com.
