A service that's coming soon (maybe from @Epidiah@twitter.com), because of growing need, is someone who reviews your .itch.io page, recommends what games to feature and what to make restricted, and what should be free, what pwyw, with recommend prices for everything, so there's a...

NARRATIVA VS. OPEN WORLD

Premesso che questa riflessione parte da un vecchio articolo del 2016 sui videogiochi  che si può riallacciare al mondo dei GDR cartacei, lLasciamo il link qui sotto:

Sulla falsariga di questo articolo e sulle analisi che ne sono emerse cercheremo di legarli al mondo dei GDR, portando esperienze personali fatte nel corso di

@Halfjack
I have a question for you: what does a game need to be "powered" by the Soft Horizon? I have this game in mind and for as much as I love the core rules I'd love to bend them towards other directions (not completely tho). As much as this sounds like a hack, what do you think it's mandatory to still call a game a member of the Soft Horizon's family?
I have a partial answer but I wanna hear from you first.
Thanks!

Hey, folks, I'm having a bit of trouble making ends meet this month, so if you wouldn't mind buying some of my games at parenthesispress.itch.io or drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/10096/Parenthesis-Press that would be great. And if you aren't in the mood to buy something, could you at least boost the post, please? Thanks a lot!

11. Shoutout an underloved creator.

It's always surprised me that you (or, at least, I) don't hear more people mentioning Sarah Newton https://rpggeek.com/rpgdesigner/20007/sarah-newton. Maybe people sing her praises in places I don't frequent. I mean, they must. Her work has won Ennies, after all. But her name isn't dropped in conversations as often as I'd expect. (Can you, for example, name her Ennie-winning game?)

Her Monsters & Magic https://mindjammerpress.com/monstersandmagic/ is still unique among retro-clones, in that it is the only one that immediately motivated me to want to play it.

And, looking at her list of credits now, I hadn't realized she had a hand in a bunch of titles I recognize.

Today I deconstruct the days playtest and see that our system doesn't have the same function many systems do. It does not progress or define the narrative. It always pivots it.

It was inevitable: sooner or later we had to turn Kobold In a Box into something more professional. So here we are! We bought a domain and we're ready to roll! Overall, the site look is not much different from the free version, but it's linked with new, useful stuff and it's easier to manage for us. We hope you enjoy the stay!

Are role-playing games fundamentally about leaving a creative burden to players? Where might that be?

Gonna post some gaming-related stuff... for folks interested in playing tabletop RPGs as humans who've transformed yourselves into wolves for a serious quest, @Epidiah's Wolfspell is on kickstarter. Epi's running a solid, short KS without lots of stretch goals or over commitment, to bring the game into the world. A+ concept. And awesome art by @Portablecity

LRT: the best way to support people in their design (or any creative or intellectual endeavour, tbh) is to help an idea to become the fullest expression of itself, not what you feel it should be.
