hey there! i'm courtney (she/her), i'm boston-based and i love indie ttrpgs even though in practice most of what i play in practice is 5e lmao. i've begun to foray into developing story-based games and have a bunch of projects in progress, but only one published. my itchio is magicalgurll and my twitter, which i'm probably not actually abandoning lol, is andromedamn!! looking forward to meeting everyone!!!


i went into a fugue state and wrote a lasers & feelings hack for the thing & another thing jam! soul & survival is a dark fantasy based on the general Vibe of dark souls and bloodborne, as interpreted by someone who's played neither. it's 90% vibes by volume and it's pwyw on itch!

soul & survival, where i drop a bunch of esoteric sounding names like The Sunstone and The Keeper of the Last Light and just leave y'all to figure out what that shit means for yourselves

i want to write a lasers & feelings hack for a jam that's happening... my current strongest idea is Piracy & Pining, which is just "ofmd: the lasers & feelings hack except i'm only basing it off people's tweets about ofmd because i haven't seen it." alternatively i do something based on people's tweets and my friend's discussions of dark souls/bloodborne. one of your stats is soul to keep in touch with your humanity and the other is your more monstrous side

follow up on this: it turns out there's a big corporate conference this week, so onboarding has been more or less put on hold, even though this is very much my first week. hilarious

hello from my new job!!!! they only scheduled me on three very brief meetings today and i still don't know who i report to. they open every organizational email with "hello, humans." i'm sure things will ramp up soon but for now i am absolutely just coasting

update on my intent to do a bunch of gamedev work before starting my new job on monday, as the week starts to come to a close: i did nothing. sometimes it be like that

ttrpg-related reflections!! 

ultimately i'm putting out my games mostly for me and because i want them to be enjoyed so it's not like, a problem or anything!!! just something to think about because i'd be lying if i said i didn't want to see my creations receive some success lmao

ttrpg-related reflections!! 

hm HMMMM so i had hoped that adding more community copies for ratings/comments would encourage getting those but a stop along the road has received vanishingly few... that's kind of a disappointment but it was a good experiment!!! i will be adding more community copies later regardless (because i need to for the jam it's a part of lol). interestingly the wizard's tower got way more ratings way quicker but idk how to replicate that

Turn and Towns Like Ours have been added to the already magnificent charity bundle, RPGs for Reproductive Justice, on DriveThruRPG! SO many awesome games at a really reasonable price for an essential, vital cause!

i didn't do any of the gamedev i intended to yesterday but i DID do some art... here are a couple pieces of these same blorbos from the other day too while i'm at it. i got too attached to a character from a one shot and i just need like a week to get it out of my system

trying to do some writing in but the only thing i want to do is make maps......... i'm saving the map for last-ish because the assets i want for it cost money and i don't want to spend any cash before i'm confident in releasing it, but also. brain wants to place tiles on things.

i've gotten my sole obligation for the day out of the way and now i don't know what to do with myself. last week was so packed and in general i keep my schedule busy so it's like..........in the absence of events, who am i

anyway hopefully i'll get some work on done, or maybe start coming up with the base mechanics for that shop running solo game

oh hey Valor is in this bundle for reproductive rights! my friends wrote that one—if you like front-loaded crunch for lots of character customization so you can do anime-inspired intense action, it's a great choice!!!

gooood morning! today marks the beginning of my last week of freedom, since i start my new job next week... one of my friends threw a "bum party" when he got his new job, like the energy of a bachelor party except for an event that ACTUALLY restricts your freedom instead of marriage, and i'm trying to think of what i can throw together last minute lmao
