Matt Corville's Strongholds and Followers is looking so good it might drive me to actually run a DnD game

I personally don't know what I'm looking for before I see it. Generally whatever Goblin Punch and The Alexandrian put out, I could binge their blogs for hours (and I have).

Actually there's a point, what kind of content are people really crying out for in the rpg space? Every man and his dog has an actual play podcast rn.

If I was to write up a report on my session two of Lady Blackbird that went over what prep I did before the session and how I used it during the game would anyone be interested in reading it?

Getting very excited about running a game of Torchbearer for my IRL friends. Will be very different to my usually handwavey games like DW, Blackbird and Blades.

Once I move and actually have space next year I seriously want to run a short campaign of torchbearer. I'm super excited to try something super heavy and crunchy since I usually play incredibly light narrative games.

All my prep work payed off because the second session I ran of Lady Blackbird was *excellent*. I can't get over how lucky I was to randomly be playing with 3 great roleplayers, one of which is totally new to the hobbt.

The number one thing holding Mastodon back is that making sense of the fedoverse it is all a bit too hard.

And of course my trusty notecards to help me out during play. I should write one with names for NPCs.

Here's the plan for how I'm going to start my session two of . I'm really happy with how these leading questions turned out, ending with a tense starting point to the game.

Now I just need to remember to prebake a description for descending into the depths and come up with some difficulty scores and I think we're going to have a really good game!

Running session 2 of Lady Blackbird is a bit funny but it should be fine tomorrow ^_^

Mastodon is just a public discord instance

Now that I've finally played Monster Hunter I'm really impressed at how well Kingdom Death: Monster translated the experience into board game form.

It makes me wonder what other videogames are waiting to have a great tabletop adaption.

Replacing Mastolab with Tusky for a test. So far it looks like it actually displays notifications in a timely manner and has multiaccount support these days so it's a thumbs up from me

A big TTRPG two day event is happening in my city and I'm so chuffed. Although my city is pretty big in terms of Australia I didn't think I'd ever have an event like this near where I live.

I know it's not Friday but I'd love some suggestions of accounts that are worth following not on dice.camp (gaming or otherwise).

I mean yeah I could do it all digitally but I think better when I'm writing on paper.

Step one of whenever I sit down to do some rpg prep is to remember which notepad I was writing in last time

My number 1 desire for Mastodon (and how I assumed it worked when I started ) is that I could take my account with my to different instances. So if dice.camo is federated to tabletop.social I wish I could post on tabletop.social as tom@dicecamp and only have the toot appear on tabletop.social.

Number 2 desire is that I could follow users from other instances in a mega feed.

Hey @olde_fortran it looks like dice camp is somewhat shitting itself. A few of us aren't having toots show up.
