This just showed up in my spam files. Looks incredibly suspicious to me:

44 backers, over $6,000 pledged, and not a single comment in the comments section.

Their "press coverage" is also shady as well.

Anyone know who could do some more digging into this one?

You have two more days to take advantage of the GUMSHOE one-2-one bundle:

Two core books: Cthulhu Confidential written by Robin D. Laws, Chris Spivey, and Ruth Tillman, and Nights Black Agents: Solo Ops by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, plus many different adventures.

One GM. One Player. Two amazing games.

Can you only get one person to play RPG games with you? Fear not(*), the Cthulhu Confidential Bundle of Holding has you covered:

Written by Robin D. Laws, Chris Spivey, Ruth Tillman, and Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan

* Note: OK, maybe you can fear a little.

I felt ruined for making games by the pandemic and stress of the world. But now I've made this. It feels different to me. Social deduction storytelling about how we choose to live with each other.

I'm really excited about it. Let me know what you think.

Awesome to see along with Robin D. Laws and Kenneth Hite talk about Getting Started with Horror Roleplaying.

I want to run some Mindjammer (Fate Core) 2-5 pm pst this saturday? Looking for 4-5 players.

Had a small thought about using GUMSHOE one-2-one and Fate to create a Fate one-2-one game.

GUMSHOE tends to be more gritty but it might be interesting to have consequences that have discard conditions attached to them. Also wondering how the Fate Point economy works with just one player.

Happy that Chaosium has adopted an OGL-alike license for BRP but the more I think about it the more I wish they would either add more explicit mechanics to their SRD, or change over to using the actual OGL with a separate trademark license.

A new sale on itchio of my games! The Wouldn't It Be Nice? sale hopefully will cover any of my COVID-19 testing costs and related expenses. Wouldn't that be nice? $40 for all my games on PDF!

Runs the length of a quarantine so get it while it's good ;)

...and its done! Thank you to all the one who were around the Demo. Here is what I got during the short demo: I'll continue to color this tiny GNU, I could just scratch quickly the coloring.

Starting to question my motivations for bringing home a role playing game based The Yellow King.

I mean, it's gotta be OK to read it.

Isn't it?

Question: I have several sections in my RPG book for fiction and back-story for each of the magical schools in Hereva (Pepper&Carrot's world). I'm tempted to add the mechanics (aspects, stunts, etc.) in there, but I'm also tempted to put those in a separate section. Which do you think is better for the reader? I know I tend to gloss over fiction to get to the goodies, so I'm curious of your opinion.

Thank you to @blinks and @olde_fortran for their review of my game "The Minus Touch" in their round-up of their One HP Game Jam:

(BTW: it was Markdown via Pandoc:

Looking forward to checking out the rest of the games, especially Hit+Die by @JasonT

The Princess Bride RPG (using Fudge) is really gorgeous. I hope it gets more folks interested in the Fudge system.
