Wandering Beekeeper: The Reality of the Divine

Patrons of The Wandering Beekeeper just got a new post on coming-of-age rituals, inheritance, and blood pacts in the Venleitche game world. The public thus gets an older post from 28 May talking about how a culture works when the reality of its Divinity is undeniable. Want to see the new material as it happens? Want to see the game in its entirety, which is patrons-only until it's playtested and released? Want to support a mechanic driven by player agency? Follow the link!

And what does this have to do with missing cats?

Who is Percival Hargrave, and why is his airship the USS Spindrift, registered in the Union, currently in the skies over London? More Wednesday. #ttrpg #steampunk #fasa1879


Venleitche Patreon: New patron and public posts!

My patrons just got the section on Cyclical Observances in the Religion chapter. Everybody else now gets the early draft of the History section, talking about the fall of the Northern continent, and why the Southern continent people live the way they do, originally posted on May 22nd. Want more? Want to see the compiled system as it stands each month? Those posts, with attached PDFs of the development version of the game, will never be made public. Want to help get this game up to playtest level, and take it to Discord? Click through.

New Patreon Post Up

Cert Renewal issue today

Sorry about that, folks. There's a certbot renewal script in cron.d, but it ran into a port conflict with nginx from the looks of things. I've manually renewed the certs, and am looking into why the port conflict occurred and how to work around it.


Wandering Beekeeper: Venleitche Dice Mechanics

The patrons got to see the first entity of the Darkness today. In turn, this older post has been made public, containing thoughts on the dice mechanic for the game. There's been some revision since this post.

April TTRPG Maker post 30

30. If you were in charge of the ttrpg industry, what would you change?
I'm not sure I'm arrogant enough to answer this question with any degree of authority. I mean, the industry isn't a homogeneous organization, or even a consortium; it's a sort of collective silo of companies ranging from WoTC and Paizo down to one person putting out their indie game in PDF because they can't afford a print run. Trying to provide any sort of sweeping generalization just seems to be overreaching. I might suggest an advertising fund, contributed to on an as-able basis, that promotes ttrpgs outside of the existing target groups. We could all use more players, a larger market to divide up amongst us, and if we all chipped in according to our ability, ttrpgs in general might profit from letting people know what's out there. This could be done on a smaller basis, like a consortium of smaller publishers working to let people know there's more to ttrpgs than D&D. I... Show more...

April TTRPG Maker post 29

29. Exciting 2019 RPG Trends?
The market and industry have grown wide and deep enough in terms of available and forthcoming product that I'm unable to track it. I've been head-down over my own product lines, trying to get product out and stay in my lane. Once in a while I come up for air and see some cool stuff, but scattered data points do not make a trendline. I'm not the right person for this question.
