Just ran a oneshot of Pasión de las Pasiones. It was absolutely crazy and all we got to do was make the characters and play one scene.

We decided we have to continue next week. 🤣

Magic systems with clearly defined (probably mathematical) rules are boring and aren't really magic, just alt-science.

Me: (Watches two episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion on Neflix.)

(Realizes that the end credits no longer have "Fly Me to the Moon" in horribly garbled English over them.)

Me: Then what even is the point?

(Stops watching Evangelion.)

It's fun to erase the "s" in titles containing "self":

- Me, my elf, and I
- Consider your elf
- Our bodies, our elves
- The elfish gene
- The art of elf-defense
- I hate my elf for loving you

The heroism of health in the face of awful and inimical culture and institutions is a super compelling nascent element in recent RPGs. We understand the heroism of it in our gut, despite a lack of mass media narratives expressing it.

Not that criticism and evolution of those narratives isn’t possible. But it’s like our collective imagination can’t go anywhere but there. Can’t imagine a « bad » tha…

I was interviewed by @Kat_Miller for her Lady Beard podcast.

We discuss what it means to be Indie, a little bit about the Forge Booth, and my gaming pre-history and current projects.

FYI, when a publisher blurb describes an author's work as "fearless," it's almost certainly a synonym for "bleak". Fearless joy is extremely uncommon and unpublished.

Here's a weird little rpg I made for the Itch Discord RPG Jam. It's a game of logical deduction and social deception, where you play treasure hunters seeking a fabulous fortune, all from the comfort of your own home using Google Maps and Discord.


We’re hosting our first ever game design jam at itch.io. It’s not a competition! Not really. We’ll talk about the submissions we find interesting, and I’m going to pull Club members in to help out. Should be a lot of fun! The theme of this, our first, jam is: how would you show (not tell!)… Continue reading The Indie Game Reading Club Presents: #OnRampJam →The post <span class='p-name'>The Indie Game Reading Club Presents: #OnRampJam</span>appeared first on The Indie Game Reading Club. Show more

Hi everyone! It's been forever. So I'm trying a thing, thought some of you might be interested. It's a very short, constrained game design jam:

What does that say about my Soul Quality?

To a baby boomer, "50 is the new 30" is a reassuring note about physical well being.

To a millennial, "50 is the new 30" is a distressing statement about when you can expect a modicum of financial stability.

I designed and wrote A Viricorne Guide for the game jam — 5092 words in less than a week.

You can get it here:

"It’s called the Reborn City. That’s because the Orb, the Wheel, and the Flute destroyed it an age ago, as a judgement for harboring a divine orphan prophesied to rise against the Nameless Gods. But then...
