It's kinda sad to me that the RPG community decided that Twitter is where the bulk of where G+ refugees landed.
Fate Space Toolkit, $10 for prototype PDF and eventual final version PDF.
“TL;DR: There’s no art, but sales of this will help us get art, and once we get art, we’ll upgrade your PDF to one with art at no added cost.”

Finally pulled the plug on my G+ account.
Sleep well, fair prince.

Google to G+ users: Go to hell.
(responses to this telling me how evil Google is will be ignored, so save us both the trouble and kindly keep them to yourself).
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.

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)
