Nice to meet you, what's your main thing?
I have so much I need to be doing today! Why now, G+? Why now?
We work so hard to build ways to communicate, and we are exceedingly clever at doing so, but sometimes it feels like we're all just being co-modified, y'know? Also, where is everyone and how will I keep track of people I've come to like and admire and rely on?
#aprilttrpgmaker 15 By the time you hear about it, I've been thinking about it for a while and I'm ready to test a thing or run through a mechanic or check how some rules interact. Designing in public leads to designing by committee, and that's anti-helpful 95% of the time.
#aprilttrpgmaker 14 To know my designs build bridges between people; expand the number of people you might consider playing a ttrpg with & what a ttrpg is about; go to all the conventions all the time; find ways to finally write the three games that are my pod of white whales.

#aprilttrpgmaker 9 Think, write, revise, let it rest, write more, go for a walk, revise, do life, writ write write, playtest, iterate, repeat.
#AprilTTRPGMaker 8 Think about games as a subroutine nearly 24/7, write frantically when I have minutes to spare, sometimes get up/stay up because its pounding on my brain, when I have a coherent idea talk with Vincent, when it’s playtestable get w/ Eppy and Emily Care, sometimes also the #bakerhouseband
#AprilTTRPGMaker 6 My workspace is my home, also the three museums I work in, as well as various coffee shops, parks, and etc.
#AprilTTRPGMaker 6 My favorite game mechanics are the ones clearly designed For That Game. Sometimes it's 2d6+stat, sometimes it's draw a card, sometimes it's 100 other options. Just make the mechanics serve the game. One good example: fan mail tokens in Primetime Adventures.
#AprilTTRPGMaker 4 My whole deal is creating frameworks for people to hang out & tell stories together. The connection between people comes first, then the stories. Trying on different roles & difference approaches to a situation is also good. Also: feminist, quixotic, fun.
