Oh cool yeah, the main projects I'm working on are:
Love Letters, a silly play-by-mail game where you try to work out if the other person is in Love with you but you're not allowed to actually talk about it. (Latest draft at http://nick.idealworld.org/loveletters/ )
CIC: Combat Information Centre, a possibly-PbtA game where you play the command crew of a military starship. Think BSG, primarily.
A wargame that I'm gonna enjoy more than Epic and Battletech while using the same models.
Absolutely OVER THE MOON to have an RPG dedicated to me ^___^ ❤️
The RPG is called Flotsam, it's a GMless and diceless game about space misfits, by Josh Fox @ Black Armada. It's really good, too! Get it here (or on Payhip and DriveThru): https://blackarmada.itch.io/flotsam-adrift-amongst-the-stars
I finally tried Cultist Simulator. It's super fun! I died of a second health catastrophe I could not prevent! (The first nixed my built-up health, so the second was the end of me.) This means next game I get to play the doctor that was treating me, unwittingly dragged into the hidden world by investigating my illness! Good times.
I bought a #Keyforge deck! Of course, I should have bought two! Oh well!
Seems like a fun game, from the tutorial videos I watched. My deck seems unreliable (too many actions, not enough creatures) but has some fun synergies when the right cards do come out.
So my chronically ill, non binary, asexual partner has started making the most adorable knitted animals and they're currently doing a pride range that include Bree the Biceratops, Tilly the Transceratops and Peter the Pansexual Stegosaurus. They'll be at #OpenSandwiches in #Manchester on Saturday at Nexus Art Cafe from 1930 and they have a Facebook page.
Please boost if you like them and think your followers would like them too!
I just found this site, Meeple Like Us, that does accessibility reviews of board games! 👍🏻 https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/game-of-thrones-the-card-game-second-edition-2015-accessibility-teardowm/
I've just been looking at Star Citizen, wondering if it's worth getting (or how soon it will be worth getting) given it's like seven years or whatever in development and still in Alpha stage.
On *next* quarter's roadmap is "playable female characters".
What?? Seven years of development and you can only play men??
I guess that answers my question.
Only a few more hours! Back now!
There's just over a day left to back this awesome RPG about werewolves, pack dynamics and challenging relationships! (I know it's awesome coz I've played it, 100% ClinkingDog guarantee.)
Everyone using https://wheretofind.me/, thank you so much! We passed 100 users while I wasn't looking, and it's really exciting. I hope this is useful to everyone—right now it's just the bare minimum, but I want to make it more useful to you all, while keeping it as aggressively simple as I can. Don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know what I can do to improve it for you.
To those who asked if Ladykiller in a Bind would be on sale on another platform: good news! It’s currently 69% off in the Humble Bundle winter sale! Take advantage of the sale critics are calling “sorta funny the first time, but kinda wearing thin now”! https://www.humblebundle.com/store/ladykiller-in-a-bind
In case people haven't read through it, I consider this retrospective compilation of Vincent Baker's writings on how RPGs work to be one of the foundational texts of roleplaying game design and theory.
Regardless of what style of RPG you want to make, any RPG designer would be well served to read it carefully all the way through.
