#AprilTTRPGMaker day 1 - who is ya?
Jo Saan, I'm Jaye Foster. I'm a white male nihilist/socialist/Buddhist. When not chasing around my toddler I sit at work cultivating my anxiety. I'm the co-author of Age of Legends, the Author of Poor Amongst the Stars and a blog writer for @6d6rpg
#AprilTTRPGMaker Day 1: Who are you?
I'm Sabe Jones. My given name is Edward, but that makes me "Edward Jones" and thus subjects me to tiresome jokes about investment banking. So I go by "Sabe", which is an abbreviation of my go-to Internet username "SabreCat". You may also see the handle "Elseleth" in places, which is the name of an elder god I came up with for a Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition game, years ago!
1. I'm Neal. Through the imprint Parenthesis Press, I make games. You probably haven't heard of them. #AprilTTRPGMaker
#AprilTTRPGMaker day 2 - where are you?
Previously of small town south coast UK, I now reside in Hong Kong, a vassal city state of the Chinese Empire.
The word I would most associate with HK would be juxtaposition. No where else have I experienced such diversity sometimes only a brick wall apart.
I missed day 1, so I'll do days 1 & 2 together:
I'm Jacob Kellogg, founder of Purple Aether Games and a 30-something Minnesotan trying desperately to launch a career in game design. I live in a tiny apartment near Saint Paul with my wife; no kids, no pets (though she wants a dog eventually).
◯/π. Where ya at?
Broadcasting from sunny Gamefield in the beating heart of Massachusetts—where the game design is so fine, they built a town around it.
At least, that's how the legend goes.
More precisely, I'm at Another Castle, but that's a tale for another day.
#AprilTTRPGMaker Day 1: Who are you? (I forgot to post this here yesterday!)
I'm Aslan. I've dabbled in design and worldbuilding for my game groups for many years. For the last 3 months I've been working on my first major TTRPG project (a BitD hack). Recently, I've been wanting to design in a more open, public way and get involved with the community. I'm happiest when collaboratively designing or making great stories with folks!
#AprilTTRPGMaker Day 2: "Where ya at?"
Physically you'll usually find me in Hull, England. Mentally I'm trying to balance my design + play ambitions amid my depression and anxiety (and procrastination...) bugbears. Today's off to a great start; super motivated!
I might approach #aprilttrpgmaker from the boardgaming side of things as I'm neither an RPG designer, creator, nor writer, yet I want to join in on the fun.
#AprilTTRPGMaker Day 2: Where ya at?
Physical location? A suburb of Madison, WI, USA, home of the Forge Midwest tabletop games convention coming up at the end of this month! It's not a bad place to live, except for the fact it's in the United States, what with the terrible healthcare and the fascism and all.
#AprilTTRPGMaker day 2: where ya at?
Near Seattle: "Eastside" (of the lake, that is, where the wine tasting is). Nestled between green belts in a 40-year-old house that had two sets of eclectic owners. Slowly morphing everything about it to fit our aesthetic.
#AprilTTRPGMaker Day 2: Where ya at?
Geographically: Long Beach, CA
Professionally: I’ve been at the same company for 13 years. Probably a record for video games
Gaming: I run 2 D&D games at work and a Fate game at home.
Emotionally: It’s complicated. Buy me a drink.
