Considering hosting an itch game jam called “2020 visions” for tabletop games that help yourself or others process what a weird, hard year it’s been, or just how it compares to the future that TTRPGs thought we had in store. Any interest?

On the one hand, Avorask from @fuseboy@twitter.com’s Trilemma Adventures (probably) has nothing to do with the overarching conspiracy in this campaign. On the other hand, shooting out the window he was crawling up seems too easy a way to dispatch the scariest guy you’ve ever met. 🤔🤔🤔

Need to make a judgment call about whether being thrown from a New York penthouse apartment would kill a guy made out of fused arthropods. 🤔

Also I am shocked to hear that the armor/dodge rule in Exhumed might not be entirely terrible. (It reads as clunky to me even now, but I still like it better than the alternatives I tried.)

Someone is messaging me on Discord about all the cool stuff he has been making inspired by one of my games, and I am so happy about it 🙂

I discovered @beeple@twitter.com and now I'm not sure if I'm still making an RPG, or if my new hobby is just making covers for a game about scavenging for artifacts in an alien-warped quarantine zone. Well, opinions still welcome, and thanks for all the feedback, friends. 🙃

Figured out excitedly yesterday how to satisfyingly translate In Nomine’s “rites” to my Lasers & Feelings hack Halos & Hellfire (probably Feather & Flame in the next version), aka the game I can’t stop working on even though nobody seems to want it 😆

Curious how folks feel about variants on that gray one, just in case I can convince myself to turn away from my own love for neon triangles. That second one has the back cover on the left and front cover on the right, thanks to @KevinPetker@twitter.com.

If you voted for that big, gray hand: Is that more because you like that cover best, or because that one feels most like Roadside Picnic of the options available?

Which works best as a cover for an RPG about "the Quarantine Zone," inspired by Roadside Picnic and Annihilation?

coders and non-coders of the fediverse: what is your **favorite ever** monospaced font?

(boosts? i like monospaced fonts.)

The graphic designer in me wants to respect my baseline grid and leave the top third of my text area empty. The tabletop game designer in me is determined to fit all 100 rows of this occupations table on a SINGLE DAMN PAGE.

The people have spoken, or at least muttered indistinctly

Planning on releasing 2400 (my lo-fi sci-fi sometimes-horror game) a bit at a time starting next month. Still need to decide if it'll be a straight Into the Odd hack or look more like "what if the entire system was basically Electric Bastionland luck rolls?"

Still getting the hang of the rules, but you know I love putting together a pool of differently-shaped dice and just taking the highest, without having to worry about adding anything. And I love when the GM gets to just specify what goes wrong if a roll goes badly.

Ran the first session of @BradJMurray@twitter.com's RPG Sand Dogs tonight for @DanJosef@twitter.com, @dmoren@twitter.com, and @kbenesh@twitter.com. Character creation set us up with a weird, lovable team. They're providing security to a film crew determined to break into an unknown god's tomb (whose shadow swallowed a plane).

Feel free to grab a free RPG on this over at jasontocci.itch.io if you think you’d like rules-light soulslike adventures, a card game about weirdos with a seemingly magic keychain, an introductory RPG that fits on a business card, or other tomfoolery

Got to playtest a Mazes adventure tonight. It was good! Also we all died at the end

Me doing game design late at night: “God, this is brilliant. I’d share the unfinished page now if I weren’t so tired. I’ll head to bed and finish this masterpiece tomorrow.”

Me returning to design today: “What the.... did a caveman write this garbage?”
