    Hello, fellow readers, writers, and players.

    Next round is on me.

    As soon as I finish writing the book I'm on now, I'm going to explore this game called LitRPG Forum, and figure out how to spend all of the gold I'm winning. Did you know I got an alert that someone tried to steal my gold?

    Awesome! If I'd know this forum was also a game, I would've picked a better character to play than myself.

    Sheesh! Penalties for unsuccessful steals are a little harsh! Where did my lost money go? Did @Gryphon get it, or did it syphon into @Paul Bellow's account? Can I choose a charity to donate it too? I may not be able to afford this profession

    Haha. Love the noobs. ;p

    The lost gold is gone...for now. We're waiting on update to Xenforo 2.0 later this year to add new features hopefully. I'll have to spend some to get it done, but I think it'll be worth it.

    Just looked over XenForo. Looks like their 2.0 is coming along quite nice. Most of my experience running a community has been with Invision Power Board. Interesting to see all the community software that's available now. :)

    As for gold - someone stole 100k from me. So, I gave him 50k more and threw half my money in the bank. Gotta earn interest man! :)

    I just saw Flarum... that's pretty awesome. Maybe doesn't have gold, though the community features look fantastic.

    Before finding this forum, I had strongly considered building my own community. There's a domain available... litrpg.community. ;) Oh, and litrpg.land is also available @Paul Bellow.

    I've also been interested in building a LitRPG catalog that allowed for searching, filtering, and finding LitRPG you'd like. I'm sure there is software that does this already, though I could develop it if not. Only problem is, by the time it gained popularity, Amazon would just add the genre. Haha. ;)

    Sorry - off topic. Tom, go ahead and try to steal from me. You can do it! :D

    Edit: only problem with these potential projects is... they would pull me from writing. It's the same problem. Oi. I'm always pulled between a thousand interests. :(

    Yup, I lost a LOT of time writing/publishing by concentrating on LitRPG Forum and LitRPG Reads... Well spent time, though, I think. Got a bit lucky in this place taking off so quickly.

    I feel like a dragon hoarding my gold. Stay away from my precious! Okay, maybe not a dragon...

    Ooh! That would be a cool random feature.

    You log on and a Dragon swoops down and steal XXX gold from you. Haha. Small percentage chance you distract the dragon and get gold instead!
