@jmstar i will definitely take a look! I don't need a system right now, it's just a thing I keep coming back to when I think about games - real social interaction is rarely two people bashing each other in the feelings until one falls down, but that's so often how social systems work in RPGs.
@Bad_Quail That still feels a bit too much like social combat. My character doesn't want to steam roll over the other person, I genuinely want to work this out - but I don't know if we can! etc.
@jburneko I mean, imagine two people in a romantic relationship that's having a tough time. They both want to try to patch things up, but can they work through the very real problems? We don't know! Can the system help us determine that?
@denaghdesign Yeah, the mechanics of replies to my post (and replies to those replies) are interesting. The CW feature is great and I hope its development evolves to better support how it's being used.

Dragon politics will feature heavily, FWIW: Some clans of dragons will fight, some will hide, some will become collaborators and serve the huge uberdragon god-tyrant. The PCs already have hooks into this stuff.
Running some mid-level D&D, curious for others' ideas. Show more
Premise: Dragons are fugitives from some much more powerful horror, taking refuge on this plane.
The twist: Now that horror has found them, and will destroy everything to get at them.
Questions: Why must it act through catspaws and servitors? What catspaws & servitors would be interesting? What can a band of mid-level D&D heroes do to stop it?
I have some answers, but I'm curious about your brainstorming...
@JoshuaACNewman Sign me up.
@scorcha Nothing huge, just talking about a campaign I'm about to start and looking for ideas.

@meguey and I are following Avery Alder's lead:
"I've been thinking about accessible pricing a lot lately, and so: All my games are now offered with a 30% discount for folks living in poverty or facing marginalized access in the community. Just use the discount code AFFORDABLE if you need it."
@denaghdesign It was 10 here this morning (central PA). But it's supposed to be 40 tomorrow.
I prefer cold to wild fluctuations, honestly.
@scymrian Forgotten Realms 3.0, from 2003-ish. So, so beautiful.
I write code. I make tabletop games. One of these pays the mortgage, the other does not.
