I just finished SKATER+ and submitted it to the 2019 jam! I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I hope someone else has fun with it, too! :D

The game page with the "about" text:
alamantus.itch.io/skater-plus

Rate it for the jam:
itch.io/jam/rpgenesis2019/rate

It's free, but it allows you to pay if you really like it or something!

For all the newbies that have rolled in, here's an :

I'm a hobby game developer, and I've been developing the GUTS+ RPG system over at gutsplus.tk

I'm running a campaign on that you can with (or join if there's openings) if you want:
rolegate.com/ref/Alamantus/mot

I also play 5e, I love Adventure Zone and Critical Role, I mostly read fantasy and scifi, and I'm willing to help you with !

Also @Alamantus is my main!

Does anyone have experience on improvising dungeons?

I'll be running a (largely narrative) campaign soon and it's likely that a dungeon will be involved at some point.

I feel comfortable about all the colonialism, politicking, backstabbing and losing illusions this campaigns revolves around, but I have never been into dungeoneering, so I'm a bit lost there.

Any hints?

It's bonkers that there's no way to play MtG on iOS

It's always strange to stumble on someone who remembered reading my stories ten years ago and finally got around to telling me they were wonderful. I love that I finally got to hear it, but i also think about all the times I almost quit in that decade because no one told me that.

Well, it finally happened! My friends taught me how to play Magic: The Gathering tonight, and it turns out that it's pretty interesting and fun!

Conflict resolution for tabletop games:
- Standard deck of playing cards shuffled every time
- GM draws 10(?) cards
- GM chooses X cards based on character stat level
- GM offers chosen cards to player
- Player picks 1 from remaining cards
- Resulting card = success level

Benefits:
- Random, but gives GM a chance to prepare/limit possible outcomes

Other ideas:
- Split cards into stacks of suits for each type of conflict?
- Or each suit causes a certain type of outcome?

This FISHING was in the huge Itchio bundle, and I desperately want to play it but there's so much to read:

warlock patrons that aren't satan, a fairy, or cthulhu:

1. the abyss that stares back into you
2. your future self
3. the library
4. the state
5. an angel
6. your ancestors
7. narrative tension
8. the grim reaper
9. technological progress
10. another warlock, devoted to another patron (roll again)

Please direct me to RPGs with interesting/semi-active battle systems like Paper Mario or Mother 3 where well-timed button presses/combos play a part in attacking & defending better. Thanks!

lol I just heard the best anxiety-inducing fake-out that a game master could use:

"For a moment, nothing happens.......
...
...
.....
Then nothing happens."

I just submitted my entry for . It's a GM-less game called Unexplored, about discovery, adventure, and conflict. In it, the protagonists explore a settlement looking for treasure.

The players will jump between the past and the present, defining the settlement as it existed when it was built/used in the past, and exploring it in the present, seeing which parts are in ruins, which parts have treasures, etc.

Unfortunately I haven't had time to playtest it πŸ˜“

The creators of SimCity had a division that made Sim games for corporations, including a game for Chevron called SimRefinery.

For the first time ever: this is the story of Maxis Business Simulations

This is the culmination of four years of research, and I'm so proud to share it πŸ’š

Went to my LFGS that has recently opened with strict distancing rules, of course, and got this little guy. It's very fun, works well for just one person, and I love writing and erasing my little railroads and highways and lakes and rivers 😁

Use of "Hitler" in a game title 

There's really no good way to talk about or explain this game in a text-limited format... but if it helps for context at all, my wife's cousin, who is Jewish, enjoyed the game a lot and didn't feel threatened or uncomfortable about it.

Use of "Hitler" in a game title 

The other day, I played the (much more tasteful than it sounds) game Secret Hitler with some family, and it was a lot of fun! The goal of the game is to pass enough legislation in pre-WWII Germany as either a liberal or a fascist to either prevent or cause hitler's election, respectively.

Your roles are assigned randomly each game, and I got hitler 4 times in a row... the first time I got excited and blew my cover early, and the last time I forced a re-shuffle. :P

Ok, so there's an office section for a laboratory, cataloging, and office building for the main bad company in our campaign, and there's a supercomputer on the second floor, so I'm not sure what to put on the first floor... any ideas what I can do?

There's restrooms, a kitchen/break room, and... there's gotta be something important in there! Help!
