Somebody sent me an AP report WITH AUDIO for one of my games and I am VERY EXCITED and the feeling is MAGNIFIED because I DID NOT SLEEP ENOUGH LAST NIGHT WOOOOO

surprisingly sad to notice I was inexplicably left out of the giant list of Kickstarter backer names in a beloved RPG 😭

@nicholasmasyk@twitter.com I paused for a moment, thinking, "Do I want to spend 25 bucks for a PDF?" and then noticed that contributors are being paid 20¢ a word. That's worth supporting.

This game by @nicholasmasyk@twitter.com looked really neat even before tempting me with a mention of Dark Souls kickstarter.com/projects/monke

Hit this stretch goal, and I will write something terrible for it. Like, good terrible. Like “pretend to be a doomed treasure hunter and venture deep beneath the cursèd trees” kind of terrible. kickstarter.com/projects/gaunt

Considering adding an entire third part to this book after “playing the game” and “running the game” for “hacking the game,” detailing why I used these rules, who I stole them from, and tips for switching in alternative rules. Could fill an entire page with armor variants.

It’s really hard to explain to a game designer, “I liked your game so much I changed all the rules,” but

somebody referred to my latest game in progress, Alight, as "Alright," and now I can't unsee it

It’s 2020! Is anybody doing an Itch.io tabletop game jam about cyberpunk yet? Don’t make me host this myself, nerds—I’ll put in stupid guidelines about needing to use neon or make references to CRT television screens. Just you watch me.

thanks to the lovable madman who just paid double the asking price for an in-development game, just to be nice, as far as I can tell

Really informative breakdown of how After the War, a kickstarted RPG, ended up with a budget shortfall despite an apparently successful campaign. And good on Jason for making sure everybody (but him, sadly) still got paid above market rate. kickstarter.com/projects/Jagas

That's way too many options, and I'm pretty sure I'm even forgetting some stuff that should be on this list. If you have ever enjoyed my games and anything on this list sounds especially interesting, though, feel free to help me narrow down what to focus on next!

UNTITLED URBAN FANTASY TAROT GAME: Had a blast running this "Lady Blackbird meets Monster of the Week with tarot" game at Metatopia, but the excellent group was at least 75% of that. I'd love to build on the parts that did work, though, perhaps even for multiple tarot games.

EXHUMED: I'd love to expand my original soulslike pamphlet into a collection of one-page dungeons, optionally linked into a unified campaign, likely statted for old school D&D. The original pamphlet (with its own rule set) is available free: jasontocci.itch.io/exhumed
