and then a thing of my own which you can get on DriveThruRPG is "The Creeping Kudzu: A Monster Zine"
It's a #kudzupunk monster concept + stats for a subset of systems. Pay what you want.
Or if you prefer Itch.io
https://arkhamarchivist.itch.io/creepingkudzu (where I set it at $1 minimum)
If you're in the USA and want some quality role playing material you can get some of the overstock from Evil Hat publishing at a great price:
War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus is an absolute steal here, written by @MechanteAnemone.
Don't let these quality books and games become write-offs. Pick some up today.
*There are so many new indie rpgs, which ones should I care about?*
I created the indie rpg pipeline to track as many as I can find, but with 60+ games coming out each month it's tough to figure which ones are worth a look. I asked a couple of friends who know rpgs better than I do for help. You may already know them, they're James Mullen and Lloyd Gyan. They did a podcast of their view on new indie rpgs from Dec that are worth a glance.

I don't think anyone can convince me that Fantasy Age isn't a reskinned version of True20, enough so that Green Ronin thinks they're no longer bound by the OGL.

Apparently G+ is now shutting in April of 2019 because of a second leak.
There's something really screwball going on over in G+ land and I'm not sure what that is.
The new Indie RPG Pipeline is live!

Through the Pipeline, I look to help spread the word of new indie tabletop roleplaying games being released and going into crowdfunding. You can follow by blog, rss feed or by daily email digest.
G+ Show more
One thing that had happened with the closure of G+ is that I feel way more disconnected from the RPG scene than before. Not sure if I like that or not but it had been palpable.
(I'm not looking for other networks at the moment, so please hold off on suggestions)
The Torchbearer blog [https://www.torchbearerrpg.com/?p=532] linked two good old-school-style adventures today: The Beacon at Enon Tor, and Skogenby (included with Torchbearer).
I'm borrowing Tales from the Yawning Portal from my friend @Seacitygamer , and I've got B1 (In Search of the Unknown) and A0-4 I mentioned earlier.
What other OSR-style adventures should I be taking a look at?
Supporting dice.camp: a few people have asked about how to support dice.camp. The short answer is you don't have to. But if you want to help us meet our costs (about $20/month) we now accept contributions at http://ko-fi.com/dicecamp.

Just removed my G+ circles.I'm full-in on federated platforms.
Let's do this.
oblique post, G+, RPG community (not positive) Show more
I thought that I would miss G+, but after checking in from time to time and seeing the sorts of battles that keep raging on I think I'm OK with letting that part drift into the sunset.
Are you ready for *Driving In Cars with Game Designers*? Alex Grisafi interviewed me and Ron Edwards on the way to the last day of Lucca 2018. Hear me talk about finding inspiration for games and about what's missing from the Big Model. Google Translate is decent, but the text is less than the full interview. The linked audio is complete.
And here's a selfie with Ron after the interview.
