Oh, my.

I think I've asked this in the past, but technology changes and I know I haven't kept up. I'm (finally) getting my new game off the ground, and want to share some files with players and also have them available to link to from the forums.

I'm using Facebook to organize sessions and to talk about the game itself -- summaries of what happened in the last session, player requests, that sort of thing. I'm happy with FB for that purpose.

What I want in addition is a place -- not a private group on FaceBook -- to house some files and other text to share without having to put a lot of time in. I no longer have a personal web page or anything like that.

If my main criteria is ease of use, what specifically would you recommend?

I've used Google Drive in the past for this. It works well for that sort of thing and is pretty painless to use.

The GM for the Call of Cthulhu campaign I play in uses Obsidian Portal, which seems to work fairly well. It may offer more than you need, but you might give it a look.

I used to use Livejournal, but nearly all my players have dropped off of Livejournal.

Dropbox is a plain simple file-sharing site, and I think somewhat less evil than Google (but opinions differ).
