Everyone involved in the making of Standard Action is a geek in some way, and we all take part in the wider community of geekery. So, we all have our favourite blogs, sites, webcomics, webseries’, and otherwise that you’d probably enjoy, if you like Standard Action. Here is a list of a few. A lot of us are also gamers at heart, so I’ve included links to some of the online games we play, too. If you’d like to join our list, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll consider a link exchange!
