Ended up having to cancel plans to game tonight due to parental exhaustion. To distract myself from feeling bummed out, I'm kicking around some loose setting/genre hacks for this little #ttrpg system I hacked together at the beginning of the year.
Enjoy a free game, Mastodon peeps.
Finally tried Five Parsecs From Home. I decided the city hexes were hills. We were hired by Lady Evren of the Ganymede Club to protect her while she hunted a Krorg. I actually took out the target early on, and foolishly kept fighting thinking that my K’Erin could take them with all the stun tokens I was putting on them. I was wrong, we should have fled after bagging our trophy. Poor Tyua died from her injuries, and we lost some gear. #soloRPG #wargames #ttrpg

So, yes, I'm sharing this to self promote a game I'm proud of. But it's also a good excuse to test how my website headers will look when I share stuff in the future 😁
Anyway -- Sigil & Shadow is my RPG toolkit for urban fantasy & occult horror.
Hello World! (Is that still what the cool peeps start with?)
I'm R.E. Davis aka "The ChaosGrenade". When my brain circuits aren't overloaded I like to write tabletop games, write about games, or pretend I still have the energy to someday run another game.

Let's see if Mastodon will be my new "scroll hole" or if I'll neglect it like my Steam library!

Little Five Points
I'm running a Wraith the Oblivion game set in the classic Atlanta 1994 setting that the game was published with and a lot of play happens around the bohemian commercial district of Little Five Points.
This is my fictionalized version.
Is anyone else around here into #5ParsecsFromHome ? It is a #solo #wargame with persistent character progression and campaign play. Just starting to build for it as I have no #miniatures or #terrain anymore, gave it all away years ago as I had no one to play against. https://www.modiphius.net/pages/five-parsecs
Tonight's project was updating the Commercial Maps Archive - now up to a mere FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE free commercially-licensed maps!
For anybody who runs across me for the first time here. I do make some #ttrpgs products along with a little bit of #StockArt over on DrivethruRPG. Here is a link to what I have up but it's been a while since I've made anything new. But I do have a few things in the works.
I got Mutant Year Zero for Christmas and did a three part review of it for my first series in the new year. Here's the link to part 1.
Something to consider when posting hashtags:
For people using screen readers, they know when to separate words either by spaces, or uppercase letters. 'mastoart' will try to be pronounced as one word, whereas 'MastoArt' will be pronounced as 'Masto Art'. It just makes life a little bit easier for those who rely on screen readers to interact with the fediverse
