@linnaeus I'm going to to with the cell phone usage of Alice Is Missing.
Drat, that was the last year, right? COVID has really screwed up my perception of time.

Misspent Youth: Fall In Love, Not In Line is the punk RPG you didn't know you needed.
"Misspent Youth is unlike any other RPG I’ve ever played.... This is a game that lets us focus on the story, and makes it possible for old guys like me to imagine that we’re still young and fighting every day for something more important than a parking space."
— Wil Wheaton
Picked up Agon by John Harper. This is definitely my style of #ttrpg. Wish I grabbed it sooner. Will have to see if my group wants to try a one shot sometime.
One of these days I want to make a Peloponnesian War RPG.
One of my favorite designers is on this project, David Thompson (Pavlov’s House). I know #solo #wargames are kind of niche, but they are a cool way to explore history. The Maquis fighting fascism, enough said.
Played a good session of #icrpg . We arrived at Westburg to find an enclave of humans besieged in one corner of the city. The blight has destroyed all crops, and they were starving. We sold them our horses for safe passage inside. They were eaten. The lord asked us for aid in a raid on a snakeman food store. We created a distraction and ambushed some patrols while the lords men unloaded the warehouse. The MVPs of the encounter were Mike and Chad, NPCs we picked up from the Bear Clan. #ttrpg
Had a Masks world building pre-session. Our world is going to be very different. An alternate history 2160. 100,000 people escaped through a portal to a new planet in 1962, thinking nuclear war was imminent. Some people got powers after going through the portal. It’s a brand new world. #supers #ttrpg #pbta
I see Starforged doesn't offer community copies on itch. So I'd love to gift a couple copies if anyone wants one.
If it seems like your kind of game but you can't comfortably swing the $20 entrance fee, feel free to shoot me a DM and I can gift you a copy on itch. Let's say I've got 3 copies to gift.
Modern readers hearing about Forge critiques often don't seem to realize that at least some of the writers were strongly focused on Vampire 1st Edition, where:
The introduction says the object of play is to collaboratively create a story about humanity and monstrosity.
The rules tell you that characters are functionally superheroes with fangs.
The Storyteller is urged to use devices like foreshadowing in a way that assumes a railroad (not collaborative).
...It's mostly NOT about D&D.
@deinol @nickwedig @linnaeus I like the Dogs conflict mechanics (I used them as the basis for one of my MOSAIC Strict modules). But I think there's more to the DitV than just the conflict mechanics, and a lot of those other moving parts that make the system go are done with setting elements, eg isolated towns mean the Dogs can't ask superiors what to do, need to decide in the moment. The rules of the faith means there's no playbook for how to handle stuff, PCs need to decide. etc.
For people with visual impairments: what's the best way to write alt text for an image that contains a ton of information?
Specifically, I'm doing accessibility for D&D book that includes a dungeon map. The spatial relationships between rooms are vital information, but the alt text I wrote for this map is like 5 pages long, and I feel like that's too long to be helpful?
Boosts welcome on this toot.
Got some jim pinto books. Grabbed some old ones while I was picking up new ones. #ttrpg
A Comforting Apocalypse is a GMless game about people coming together after an apocalypse.
The Solomon Guild is a systemless book with three dozen NPCs to add a criminal underworld of any fantasy city.
Protocol Primer is a book of advice on GMless gaming, and includes a protocol about clan rivalry as an example.
George’s Children is another GMless game about a post apocalypse world without adults.
