The Ruins of Murkhill MeWe Group (created early October 2018)

With the announcement of Google+ closing and the communities going away,  I checked out MeWe. I saw that an Admin over at The Ruins of Murkhill forum had setup a MeWe group for the forum. MeWe looks pretty promising and I encourage you to come join the group and check it out, https://mewe.com/join/the_ruins_of_murkhill_-_odd_and_rpgs and there are 46 members right now if you want to come there and give it a try. It looks promising and they have a feedback option where you can give improvement ideas (1st option), ideas for a new feature, a problem report, general feedback and a compliment. I have made suggestions and since I selected the option for an email reply, I have gotten a reply, 1st to tell me that they got the feedback and then a reply from a team member telling me they submitted my idea to the tech team.  That is very encouraging, so we will see. 

Content should be coming soon and hopefully the group will continue to grow. If you are a OD&D and old school rpg fan, please come join us. The group is an open group with no hoops for membership.

Original Dungeons & Dragons the Old-School way. We are here to discuss old school table top role-playing games with a focus on OD&D; however, we also discuss Classic D&D and other TSR games, Arduin, Gamma World, Metamorphosis Alpha, Retro Games; Clones, Retro Clones, Emulations and Old School inspired games, Classic Traveller and other Science Fiction games.

The Arduin Grimoire MeWe Group (created early October 2018)

With the announcement of Google+ closing and the communities going away,  I checked out MeWe. I also set up a MeWe group for The Arduin Grimoire here to give it a try, mewe.com/join/the_arduin_grimoire and there are 11 members right now if you want to come there and give it a try. It looks promising and they have a feedback option where you can give improvement ideas (1st option), ideas for a new feature, a problem report, general feedback and a compliment. I have made suggestions and since I selected the option for an email reply, I have gotten a reply, 1st to tell me that they got the feedback and then a reply from a team member telling me they submitted my idea to the tech team.  That is very encouraging, so we will see. 

I made a post over at the Google+ Arduin Grimoire Group back on October 12, 2018 a few days after I created the group. In the last two weeks membership at the MeWe group has grown to 24 members from the 11 noted above. Content should be coming soon and hopefully the group will continue to grow. If you are a Arduin and Dave Hargrave fan, please come join us. The group is an open group with no hoops for membership.

A place to hang out and discuss the Arduinian Multiverse, and Arduin where the many worlds of the Multiverse connect. All from the fertile imagination of Dave Hargrave.
