For all the newbies that have rolled in, here's an #introduction:
I'm a hobby game developer, and I've been developing the GUTS+ RPG system over at https://gutsplus.tk
I'm running a #GUTSPlus campaign on #RoleGate that you can #readAlong with (or join if there's openings) if you want:
Also @Alamantus is my main!
Michael Prescott has a new mini adventure on his blog. “In every town, village, and hamlet are women who have seen beyond fear, who are strong enough to push back winter and bring new life to the lands. Their power comes from beneath an old, stone shrine, half-forgotten by the people of today. What secrets are known to those who dare pass through the mouth of spring?”
This Person Does Not Exist: https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/
This is: A) a creepy glimpse into our AI driven future where every form of evidence can be faked and the world looks more and more like Philip K Dick's worst nightmares
and B) a great source of character portraits for PCs and NPCs in modern day RPGs. You're guaranteed to not accidentally use a person who turns out to be a minor celebrity or a notorious serial killer or something, because these people don't exist.
The compendium for last years’ One Page Dungeon Contest on DriveThru… https://www.rpgnow.com/product/265210/One-Page-Dungeon-Compendium-2018-Tenth-Anniversary-Print-Edition
Campaign Idea: you are the members of the Dungeon Inspectors. You go into various tombs, keeps, and labyrinths, carefully avoiding spike traps, spinning blades, and bubbling pits of acid so that you can submit what the challenge rating of the facility is to the authorities.
You want to leave traps untriggered, because dangerous dungeons are worth more to high paying adventuring parties. You might even want to make them *more* dangerous. Make them too hard though, and no one will dare enter.
Remember this morning when I said I'd create a #DnD supplement today?
For all those times you flipped through the PHB saying, "Wait, how is there not a [farmer, doctor, etc] background in here?!"
I give you Working Stiffs, a #DnD5e background bundle:
I always want to start some kind of CCG that's simple but engaging, but I have no ideas for them! Maybe I'll make one about just...stuff. Like, office stuff, house stuff, food stuff, and each thing will fall into different categories to make other "main" things better. Like staples enhance the stapler.
I also have the problem that I don't know anything about CCGs though...
Bee tee dubs, I've cross-posted LAUNCH on DriveThruRPG as well, mostly so that somebody looking in one spot doesn't have to wonder if they're seeing all my games.
Money problem, request for help Show more
Hey friends, someone in our little community is really in a dire situation.
They have cost (including animal care) stacking up and no way to make ends meet.
Their PayPal is at Andrew.Ragland@gmail.com , be generous if you can.
Boost if you cannot be generous.
(To be extra clear, it is not my paypal and I asked them to promote their paypal because I read they were in trouble)

Guess what friends, we are now 2000+ people at the table.
We have grown quite a bit, but we still have that nice local time line.
Big kudos to the moderators and administrators that keep the place fun and safe <3
Just in case people are not aware, paying supporters get an invite to have a blog on https://tabletop.press
• cleared an entire fort of bandits, leaving only the old lady who cooks and cleans the place
• saw a mammoth nonchalantly destroy two wolves
• was delivered a letter from a jarl from I guess the best courier in the world who found me while I was sneaking
• brute-forced a puzzle
• was attacked by (and killed) a powerful (and disgraced according to a letter) magic user and his guards while trying to avoid a pack of wolves that was just trying to defend their territory
I sat down to give a little bit of thought to this #gameIdea and the only thing I could think of is, like... complicated Go Fish.
Want to see a different angle on classic fantasy roleplaying?
Check out Dungeon Grind: a single-session tabletop game about the un-glamorous work behind becoming a legendary adventurer!
The beta is available now at a discounted price, and getting it means a free upgrade to the final release when it comes along. Don't miss out!
Dang, I really wish there was a #Skyrim mod for Xbox One to re-clothe dead NPCs. There's one for PC, but not Xbox, and that would be the one last thing that would make my modded Skyrim experience as perfect as possible...
@Miru it's based in 5e, I believe, but here it is: https://critical-hits.com/blog/category/critical-hits/columns/dungeonomics/
My main home is @Alamantus, but this will be my tabletop gaming home away from home!
I occasionally make and play tabletop games, and it's fun!
