You can't see the names of people who've joined #AStoryofStoryplay jam, but I can. There's some from outside the #ttrpg scene - a fanfic writer, and a Twine writer, & others. If you hang out in a geeky writer community, please help spread the word there.

#RPGs I bought at #luccacomicsandgames2019

On might thews: this has been on my list for ages, I'm eager to try it but it mixes fantasy adventure setting with a simple story driven system, it should be perfect for my tastes

Microscope: I didn't know but I'm credited at the end of the Italian edition because the publishers decided to bring it to Italy after they played a demo with me at a convention a few years ago. I was so honored! I bought the game and made them sign it :3

Burning opera: I worked on the translation/editing and got my free copy, yay!

The Warren: now that the pbta-invasion is over, I can read a pbta without feeling bored immediately. Since I'm re-reading watership down with my wife, I managed to convince her to buy the game, let's see if we actually get to play it!

Star-crossed: I followed the Kickstarter and the Italian edition came as a surprise. I played it at lucca with a friend of mine (it was his first rpg game ever <3) and I liked it, especially how short it is.

What new games did you buy/play recently? :D

Patreon Report Released


Report released: the word-count by chapter tracking spreadsheet for my #patreon system, Dynamic Balances, and its first game, Venleitche, has been posted at https://bit.ly/2IOz4AH . In the interests of transparency, I've made this spreadsheet public. It now includes a changelog, a step forward in treating my #patreon as a code project. I'm already delivering a weekly pre-release compile to my patrons. Ignore the Tiers, I made a rookie mistake with them. All patrons get the weekly compile. Higher-paying patrons will have dibs on playtesting. Anyone at a higher tier, or at a lower tier for a long time, will get a printed copy of the final product. #ttrpg #rpg #roleplaying

 
Also, check out that phrase, "approximate self". One of the most fun things about the small games #ttrpg scene on itchio is the invention and exploration of new genres. Solo play RPGs are one. Games with ritual elements are another. "Approximate self" is the phrase...

I need a black gamer from the American South for a sensitivity review. You'll be reading about 2000 words of backstory and associated material, and providing critique which will be taken very seriously indeed. For this, I can offer US$40, a credit as reviewer, and a free PDF copy of the finished document. #ttrpg #fasa1879

Well the 'Consent in Gaming' pdf caused a meltdown among some groups of people when it came out. So I decided to do a Jaded Gamer Diary entry about it. Along with my proposal of an alternative solution.

Count me in.

 
Offering people who can afford to go to an expensive convention 50 percent off a digital product while making anyone else pay full price. It's thing like this that make people want to pirate a pdf product rather than pay for it.

Anybody out there know of any good youtube (or equivalent) channels or podcasts about #boardgame and #ttrpg design?

Like GMTK but for #tabletop games I guess, NOT just reviews, like looking at mechanics and theming and all that good stuff
