There's actually several hashtags used for tabletop gaming:

#TTRPGs
#TabletopGames
#TabletopRPGs
#GameDesign
#RPGDesign

We don't really have a community equivalent of the #Checkin though... and the gamers are not as active as they were last year...

As some of you have read earlier I am hosting the OSRIC wiki pages:

https://pluspora.com/posts/de0f60306cf001376ae1005056264835

I said that work would continue there along with other goodies to add. I am excited and happy to announce that (with kind permission from the main author) we are ready to open up the wiki space of Kellri's (https://kellri.blogspot.com/) Dangerous Dungeons project!

I am listing it in the main index of the site:

https://osricwiki.presgas.name/doku.php?id=index

...but here is the direct index page of the project:

I know he has been busy according to messages we have exchanged, but it is my hope that this space can become the mai... Show more...

 
My partner Thomas Novosel has #art and #rpg related materials (including a game I wrote in Monster Butts 2) here at his site: https://thomasnovosel.bigcartel.com/ They're super amazing! Check them out and share!

Another brief blurb on this since I have made a better "index" page/front door/whatever...

In light of a question I posed:

https://www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=81741

…and with the help and encouragement of the #OSRIC community, I am happy to announce the opening of the OSRIC wiki.

https://osricwiki.presgas.name/doku.php?id=osric:index

There is still some work that needs to be done, but the actual reference data is all there for your gaming usage. The editors of the wiki also hope to add some other goodies. Stay tuned!

I put out posts for specific blogs for folks to be aware that they exist but I'm not an OSR person myself, but am a TTRPG player when I can and like to stay up on things.

Recommended to try looking for folks using a variety of links in posts:

As is par for the course for me, I've fallen behind. This will be post 8-11

8. Favorite collaborators?

I haven't done much professional work, but Eloy Lasanta gave me a start (and a great education) in the industry, and was very understanding and supportive. I worked with J. Fryer on that one, and have worked with him for years on many PbEMs, and am in awe of his skill, his imagination, and his humility. Writing with him always forces me to up my game, and I love to collaborate with people that help me bring my best.

9. How do your games distribute power among the players?

I've started to get to the point where I'm loving either (a) player-facing games, (b) diceless games, or (c) resource based games. I find that these m... Show more...

7. How to increase accessibility?

I never really thought about accessibility until I saw Jacob Wood's Accessible Guide to RPG Layout. I still don't think about it as much as I probably should, but since that was one of my firsts texts after I started laying out my own games, I keep a lot of it in mind- especially in regards to font choice and colors.

6. Long or short ttrpg texts?

I'm more likely to complete short. So I try for that, but then find I don't have enough room to encapsulate all of my ideas. So it gets longer. I'm trying to learn to be concise and be able to kill ideas that take me away from that using #Itch #GameJams, #200WordRPG, #GameChef and other events to help me fit an idea in varying word counts. I've had some success, but have a way to go.

5. Character or worldbuilding?

Image/Photo

I have reams full of characters. It's one of the first things that I try when I get a new system. It's one of the first areas of concentration in my designs. That said, the characters cannot stand alone and a world that is suited to the characters, and the characters are suited to, is key in bringing any narrative alive. So as I create the characters, they breathe life into my concepts for the worlds.

I tend to build characters more than worlds, but the worlds I spend more time upon. All that said, I really can't choose between the two.

4. Favorite type of game scenario?

I love intrigue, as shown by my love of #Amber, #LordsOfGossamerAndShadow, #LordsOfOlympus, #DeltaGreen, and many more suspense and conspiracy theory type games. However, I have trouble writing the scenarios for those, and the webs that must be maintained quickly become tangled with holes in the logic. I still work on those, and try to read scenarios that have those types of situations and learn from them.

I also like open-ended type scenarios that have a real impact on the game world. I take being a fan of the characters quite seriously, and love to see not just the current situation, but their progress from it.

RPG Creators Relief Fund, INC


The latest Bundle of Holding (I love those!) is benefitting a charity that I'd not heard of before, and seems pretty worthwhile: Though computer game developers need to be unionized and get some sort of protections, they at least have some. People in the TTRPG industry have very little. That saddens me, so I just figured I'd give this a boost.

Interesting view on the use of the word 'Community' (geared towards gaming)


I've always been hesitant to call myself a member of any community, if only because invariably, there are members of that community that share views that are different than my own, and calling myself a member paints me with that same brush. There are many views- both good and bad- wrapped up in any conglomeration of people. And when you get to online identities, you have to deal with the fact that you might not be looking at someone's true face.

I play Video and Computer Games but am not a member of that community. I play RPGs and Board Games but am not a member of that community. I'm into Mechanical Keyboards but am not a member of that community. And so on, and so on. Dealing with people on an individual level has always been my go to. Not to make assumptions for the good nor the bad.

This blog post summarizes a lot of thoughts that I'd had more eloquently than I could ever have written them.

So, itch.io has started up its own discussion with the G+ diaspora that's started boards everywhere. And I've used it before, but really only for computer games, though I've dipped my foot into the ttrpg waters there before. I never had the time for a programming game jam, but am thinking of signing up for one.

Anyone have any experience with them? I never realized that there were so many and that they were so frequent!

- Society of Dreamers, by Matthijs Holter
- Okult, by Wilhelm Person
- On Mighty Thews, by Simon Carryer (has a "GM" role)

It goes on and on! Check these out, then ask me for more.
