RPG Alchemy ���� 2015 Goals


RPG Alchemy – 2015 Goals

Definitively Answer The Question:
– How can we offer value to gamers?

Blog Goals:
– Professional redesign of the website (web, graphic, and brand design)
– Add one more quality, once-per-week author to collaborate with
– Host the RPG Blog Carnival (now hosting in April 2015!)

Social Media Goals:
– Reach 20,000 ����hits���� in a single day
– Reach 500 WordPress Blog Subscriptions
– Reach 500 Facebook Likes
– Reach 500 Google+ Followers
– Reach 2,000 Twitter Followers

– Connect with other RPG bloggers by writing six guest posts
– Attend two game conventions (at least one with my family)

– Prepare RPG Alchemy for the ����secret���� goal in 2016.

Let me be clear on this, I am not a New Year’s Resolution guy. I set goals in my life all the time (not just New Year’s) for every area of my life: Health, Wealth, Family/Friends, Hobbies, Relationships, Career, Personal, Spirituality. This is the time of year that everyone talks about their goals. For me, it is a time where I review the goals I’ve previously set and re-evaluate where I’ve come from, where I am, and where I am going.

The concept for RPG Alchemy had been brewing in my head for several years, pretty much ever since my old blog (RoleplayingPro) had shut down. I decided that on my second time around, I wanted to be much more focused on what I wanted out of creating a roleplaying blog. How can we offer value to gamers? What would the site do for me? What would the site do for other people? Where would I take the blog (or where would it take me)? Those were just a few of the many questions that I asked myself before we wrote our first post on August 26th, 2014.

Since that day, I’ve had a great time working with my good friend, John Lewis. It feels great to be writing creatively again and to be actively connecting with other bloggers and gamers. I can’t wait to see where 2015 takes us.

Best wishes to you, your family, and your gaming adventures in 2015!

About Samuel Van Der Wall

Sam has been roleplaying since he first encountered Battletech 1st Edition. It was initially the tactical play that drew him in, but eventually he expanded into the roleplaying game portion and it was a done deal from there. His favorite game is Shadowrun, but he����s also a huge fan of Dungeons & Dragons, Dungeon World, Numenera, Star Wars, Warhammer, and many other roleplaying games. He����s a huge fan of Fantasy Flight Games and numerous other gaming companies and publishers. He prefers playing over game mastering. He likes creating one character, building on that character, integrating it into the story, and seeing how it develops over a campaign. He����s not afraid of character death because it����s often memorable and builds the story! If he had a specialty, it would be that he����s really into helping other players draw out storylines in their own characters and further their own goals. He����s never had the privilege of attending a gaming related convention, but hopes to attend two next year.


  1. You’ve set the bar fairly high my friend, but real goals drive energy and creativity. Here’s to an awesome 2015 at RPG Alchemy!
