This morning my Kindle Fire finally graced my office doorstep and I have been busy making the Great Leap Forward. Moving the small mountain of electronic gaming data from my hard-drive into a format that I will actually read has been mostly painless but the sheer volume—we're talking a jaw-dropping 3,000+ PDFs--of it all has got me thinking about my own and others usage patterns.
It has been asked before elsewhere, but I am remain curious. It's not great secret that our hobby is saturated to the gills with published and electronic material. Adventures, settings, rules settings pile up at an astonishingly high rate, enough that I could safely say you'd never be able to process, let alone game with in a single lifetime.
Through the haze of that infoglut, what do you actually use? What free resources—let's leave out rule sets here--do you find yourself using the most that have come out of gaming blogs or forums? Do you find yourself using those freebies less or more than published material you've paid for?
Enquiring minds want to know.
