My actual system is base OSRIC with some Adventures Dark and Deep thrown in. Rounding out with a sprinkle of Dragonsfoot Footprints articles and my own houserules wiki.
I am into talking about/learning about other editions and other #rpg games for sure!
Looking at https://instances.social/list/old, about 40% of instances are on version 2.3.x, and about 25% on the latest 2.3.2. Not shabby!
But some realtalk, friends still running 2.1: it's time to upgrade. Some great new features count on us collectively being a bit more up to date than that.
Anyone heard from our instance admin? I have seen no posts since around the end of January.
I have asked about updating the instance and got no replies. Do we know if they're okay?
Ahhh! Another reason for dice.camp to upgrade to #mastodon 2.3.0 : Account archive download and full text search!
Any thoughts on this, @olde_fortran ?
Reading "The Greatcoats" series by De Castell. Quotable quote for you #gmprep people; grist for your imagination mill:
"A murdered man gets no rest... He either serves the living by revealing his killer or serves the murderer by concealing his identity. Which would you rather be?"
Just seemed like a nice inspiration to go and get your mystery adventure going.
I am starting to wonder about having more than one account. It seems many of the tech people I follow are either into gaming or open to it. All the gaming people are into technology or open to it. The introduction of Lists in 2.1.0 is something I want to explore.
Considering consolidating to one #mastodon instance. Opinions?
The world doesn't need more first person shooters, or 3rd person murder island games. It needs better, more inclusive stories that can inform a new generation of gamer what it means to be a decent human being.
Most #OSR people know Kellri's blog and all the wonderful community based, free awesomeness produced by him over the years. Just look at his blog on the right side at "Downloads":
...along with #OSRIC content and an expansion called Dangerous Dungeons!
Well, he has run into some health issues and is asking for the community's help:
If you can spare some cash to help, I'm sure he would appreciate it.
Tenkar will match!
chicagowiz's Three Hexes series is really good for getting campaigns started and getting your #RPG planning juices flowing.
File under Fantastic PWYW #OSR products, and new to DTRPG: Jack Shear's splendid Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque series (but especially I and II).
Apart from being full of wonderful ideas you can steal, these books are masterpieces of economical-yet-flavorful game writing. They deliver table-ready stuff in a way that you can actually use at the table.
Here's a link to the first one: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/231327/Tales-of-the-Grotesque-and-Dungeonesque-I
