Active from 2005 to 2007 and dedicated entirely to system-neutral GMing advice, Treasure Tables was one of the earliest RPG blogs. It was also the precursor to Gnome Stew, so we decided the best way to keep all of its content -- over 750 articles and more than 7,500 comments -- accessible to as many GMs as possible was to move it here, which we did in 2012. Comments are turned off, just they as were when Treasure Tables closed in 2007. The GMing material and discussion archived below was originally featured on TreasureTables.org. Enjoy! --Martin Ralya

If you’re reading this, you’re one of the 900+ GMs who kept your subscription to Treasure Tables’ RSS feed or email service — thank you!

Lately I’ve missed writing TT, but I haven’t missed the posting schedule or workload that led to my burnout last December. Enter Gnome Stew.

Gnome Stew will be a multi-author blog about game mastering, written by GMs, for GMs. So far we have 10 authors, myself included, and by launch day we may have a couple more.

If you were a TT regular, you’ll recognize all of our authors right away. I invited them to blog on Gnome Stew because they have useful, thought-provoking things to say about GMing, and needless to say I think you’ll love Gnome Stew.

You might be wondering why I didn’t just restart the TT blog, and believe me, I gave that a lot of thought. In the end, my instincts told me I needed a fresh start on a blog that was built from the ground up as a multi-author powerhouse, and that meant creating a new site.

Gnome Stew will be launched in early May — just a couple of weeks away. If you want to know the moment we start posting GMing material, just head over to Gnome Stew and subscribe to our RSS feed or email.

I hope to see you there in May!

About  Martin Ralya (TT)

"Martin Ralya (TT)" is two people: Martin Ralya, the administrator of and a contributor to Gnome Stew, and a time traveler from the years 2005-2007, when he published the Treasure Tables GMing blog (TT). Treasure Tables got started in the early days of RPG blogging, and when Martin burned out trying to run it solo he shut it down, recruited a team of authors, and started Gnome Stew in its place. We moved all TT posts and comments to Gnome Stew in 2012.
