I'm pretty tired of hearing about Appendix N books for fantasy inspiration when books like The Unspoken Name and The Thousand Eyes by A.K. Larkwood, about a Queer Orc Lady making her way in a world of angry dragon gods, flying boats and swordplay are coming out right now.

I love Vance, Howard, Brackett and Smith as much as anyone but there's other stuff and it is coming out right now.

The two above books are everything I'd want in a D&Dish novel and more.

Anyway, librarian rant over.

Put together a bunch of links to blog posts that I find myself sharing with new folks who haven't facilitated many dragon games.

I have the best job. My job now is to create a playable dinosaur character for The Last Adventure!

Rrar! Groar!

The Indie Bundle For Abortion Funds that's currently running is in the randombundlegame search engine, so you can pretty easily find the "physical games" among the video games and comics and stuff. Check them out:

I'm not doing serious game design any more, but you might like this little pillow game we invented in bed. It's short and sweet and free.

I'm super curious about people manage solo play, so this video of Perplexing Ruins showing his campaign notebook for playing Rogueland is like catnip to me. youtu.be/AtvIw80u9Kk

_Business Calendar_ has been my go-to phone calendar app all the way from the Nexus One days, but learning that it has now officially been adapted for large screens and works great on a Chromebook (my current portable computing environment of choice) is a great treat computerworld.com/article/3663

Venom appears in Be With Me, a journaling game I'm going to publish soon about your time on an elimination dating show hoping for love. If you don't want to miss it, put me on notify on Twitter, or follow me on Mastodon.

My tiles wouldn't fit as pieces on my usual board, so I slapped some paint on a bit of pressboard so I can test a thing.

Time to draw the dungeons!

I stream Tue / Thur / Sat from 1-4pm Eastern.

Today we are starting with a small cave map and we'll see where the stream takes us after that.

An overview of my accomplishments of yesterday. I'm glad I found a way to speed up the process.
Oh and also instead of going to bed yesterday I went out at like 12am for a little walk that turned to out to be 5h long. And shot and developed the last roll. Nice. :blobcatfingerguns:

Played "The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged" last night. I liked it.

It reminded me quite a bit of the Funkoverse Strategy Game, only slightly more complex.

I very much liked the way the character charging and individual decks highlight the personalities and abilities of the characters in play.

I think there's such potential in MOSAIC Strict I've made 17 subsystems for it. Chargen, and battle systems. Systems that use journaling and collage and touch. A checklist paradigm for NPCs. So if you've been curious, now's the time. Everything I've made is 50% off. Link in next.

Psychrome (a Lasers & Feelings hack):

I went ahead and started reworking the layout of my game.

The plan is for the first 2 pages to be some kind of player's pamphlet and the other 2 pages would be the GM one.

I might have enough empty space to include some of @EvlynMoreau inspiring illustrations!

These drawing as well as an expanded description of the setting should help convey my vision of that universe!

Not sure when the next version will be ready, but we're moving from 1.3.2 to 2.0

(Amanda is great, by the way. She and I starting putting out stuff at about the same time. We met in some RPG/NSR Discord spaces, and she's just been incredibly generous, helpful and encouraging the whole time. In this case, she helped push me toward one of my favorite design elements of the game. Check out her games: weirdwonder.itch.io/ )

Show thread

At the gym, big garage doors open letting in the gentle summery air and smell of malt from the breweries. I think I might enjoy this summer, instead of dreading it like I did in Colorado.
