Hey, I'm running my sorta-weird but completely warranted D&D hack of Classic Traveller at @strategicon in a few weeks! You WILL survive character creation. It's a Mike Olson Guarantee*!
*Not to be construed as a guarantee.
God, I dunno.
Write three D&D adventures for SDCC? I'm already on the hook for that so it's not much of a "goal," really. Like, I HAVE to do that.
Maybe finish that Traveller/D&D thing?
Make something with Cortex Prime? A wuxia thing?
Get my money's worth out of Forbidden Lands whenever it shows up?
If anyone has a thing they think I should or just want me to do I'm open to suggestions. This CAN include "Please stop doing things altogether." I'm very open-minded!
@meguey and I are following Avery Alder's lead:
"I've been thinking about accessible pricing a lot lately, and so: All my games are now offered with a 30% discount for folks living in poverty or facing marginalized access in the community. Just use the discount code AFFORDABLE if you need it."
I made an audio balancing tutorial for people streaming RPGs on Twitch. https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=Ulx4vCLZ-6o So many streams where one or more people are not the same volume as everyone else >_<
Hey, if you're an #RPG creative with a Patreon and are looking for an alternative, I'll be happy to help you set up your own micro-patron system using paypal on your website, free of charge.
Don't have a website? I can help with that too.
Hit me up.
Han's line about the Falcon making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs is a ridiculous exaggeration for humorous effect -- "It's so fast that one time I had diarrhea and 12 parsecs away from the nearest toilet and my ship got me there so fast I didn't even shit my pants" -- that he KNOWS Obi-Wan will understand. He's totally deadpan with it, which is why Obi-Wan makes the face he does in response -- "Seriously? Poop jokes?"
The thing where liking a -- sigh -- toot entails clicking a star, and the star spins around when you click it?
That makes me want to click stars more. #UIFTW
Hey, maybe this is the right place to get an opinion or two on this.
A few years ago I wrote a D&D hack for LBB Traveller, for people who like D&D tropes but also like old-school Traveller mechanics. I'm not sure if this is an audience of one (me), but I've run it a few times and it's always been some degree of "good." Character creation is especially fun -- that's the one constant to come out of what I guess have been its playtests.
Does this appeal to you? Is there a broader audience for it?
That Sentinels of the Multiverse RPG starter set is very cool.
Neoclassical Geek Revival looks pretty bonkers in a good way.
I picked up Mythras today on sale at Dice House today and am eager to dig into it.
The new edition of 7th Sea was also on sale -- for half off! -- and it was a difficult decision to not buy it, but I made the call and I'm sticking with it.
END OF LINE
I see people talking about using dice.camp to, like, blog, which I guess makes sense since Mastodon bills itself as a microblogging website, but... like... is that the idea here? Because right now I'm treating it like a narrowly focused Twitter with a more generous character count.
BTW, anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I don't do anything useful with RPGs there either, so... grain of salt.
#1stRPG was AD&D in 1980. I was 7 or 8, and our family was on a cruise ship to Alaska. Some kids on the ship put a D&D game on the ship's schedule of activities. I played a 7th-level thief and was killed by a trap, IIRC. When we stopped in Juneau I found a pre-painted lead mini in a little store and my mom bought it for me -- still have it! When we got back, my grandparents bought me the Basic D&D boxed set. I started all my characters at 7th level and named them all after LotR characters.
Every time I see someone talk about tooting, this is what I think of. https://dice.camp/media/XjTmJSf8PxutFtrF-hI
Last: Ran and played D&D 5E over the weekend. It has really sucked me in.
Best: Impossible to answer. Next question.
Wanna: Uh... more MHR, Sentinels, Conan 2d20, WFRP 1e or 2e, someone's Star Wars hack, a Fiasco playset with kittens as protags, Masks, that solo D&D game I started for my son months ago that's lain dormant for... months, the new Paranoia, others. And, if I'm being honest, more 5E D&D.
Full-time dad, part-time game stuff. Thee/thy/thou.
