Geek Native set out to interest people in tabletop roleplaying and did so by showcasing the wide variety of geek culture that gamers are interested in. We care about much more than our level 13 half-orc Paladin.
As a result, Geek Native is more than just an RPG news site. We cover anime, films, books, comics, science, technology, games, art and a whole bunch more.
The site replaces a previous project, GameWyrd, by founder Andrew Girdwood. The GameWyrd archive mainly consisted of RPG reviews and user-generated content submissions. These community contributions were ported over when the blog launched. As a result, Geek Native has content that dates back to the year 2000.
Geek Native is inclusive by design; the original goal of recruiting people for the tabletop roleplaying hobby remains our guiding light. The policies page sets out the nuts and bolts of what this means in terms of accuracy, disclosure and the write for us page guides people to the Associated Press guidelines and GLAAD reference guide.
There are no financial backers (we make a loss), but a Patreon was launched in 2019, and the site runs ads and affiliate links.
Today, the hobby is enjoying a boom, and that’s a fantastic thing to be a part of. There’s a whole new generation of roleplayers to welcome and get to know.
We’re still trying to interest people in tabletop gaming, and now we’re trying to foster and empower the community as well.
