My GUTS+ Core Rule Book PDF just got approved for DriveThru RPG as well, so if you like keeping your collection all together with that system, you can buy it from there instead!

If you missed it, the previous post in the thread also includes links to where to buy it from Itch.io and a post about what makes it special!

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!

I'm super cautiously excited that my brain is finally swinging back around to game development 😳 Gotta figure out how to nurture it so the desire sticks for long enough to finish at least 1 of these 3 projects I've had written down for 2+ years 😬🤞

I've got at least 2 tabletop game ideas I think would be actually sellable, but I want to share them but I know I should wait til they're done before I share 😭

:chickArtist: I did a thing back in 2019 where I tried out a creative exercise involving drawing a lot of little portraits without any pre-planning, and a while ago I found the stack while sorting stuff recently, and continued working on them a bit, so, here are they...

Here is a question: If you wanted to move away from D&D, what other games are *direct drop in replacements*. They don't have to be based on the same mechanics, but fantasy adventures, similar power level, questing for treasure and heroics, etc.

So far I have:
Pathfinder 1e and 2e
13th Age
FantasyCraft? (It was big for about five minutes between 4e not being popular and Pathfinder taking over)

Boosts welcome. No OSR stuff please, I like modern game design and affordances.

I'm new on Mastodon, so here's my obligatory #introduction.

I'm Dave, lead #gamedev of a family team developing the #indiegame Orion's End, a space adventure / life-sim.

It has a variety of approachable gameplay mechanics based around exploring the stories of the NPCs you find and befriend within this #scifi sandbox.

It's available to wishlist on Steam: store.steampowered.com/app/208

I look forward to being a part of the Mastodon community. :D

It's #intro time! My name is Shaun, one third of Cloak and Dagger Games. We've been making adventure games since 2012, our most recent release being The Excavation of Hob's Barrow. It's nice to be here! 🙂

Some people on Mastodon might not have seen it, so I am posting some older #pixelart tiles done with my 24 colors palette suitable for #gamedev, which you can find on Lospec:

What I liked about it was that we were just playing *as ourselves* as alchemists with no stats rolled up and 25 HP, and throughout the game we could declare that we were "good at" up to 3 things to get a permanent +3 proficiency on those stats to help with our rolls. That really sped up the game and made skill checks a ton of fun because if you still had available slots, you could just declare you were "good at" combat or persuasion to change the result at the last second!

The "improvised" win condition was that the DM made up a keg of old, rotten beer on the fly with rats in it. The ooze was repelled by rats, so we ended up smashing the keg and lathering up to the waist so we could wade through the ooze without being harmed. The planned condition was a few potions of polymorph that turned a couple of our party into rats, thus repelling the ooze.

We played a spooky one-shot this past Monday (bc the Halloween party was too distracted to play)! We were alchemists visiting a master alchemist to learn only to find a weird ooze in a cauldron that started chasing us! Using scrawled notes (our DM had these physically and it was awesome) and a handful of dubiously helpful potions, we found our transformed master who told us to flee, so we did! And we somehow all survived by using 1 planned win condition and 1 improvised one 😆

Did you know I once wrote an RPG NPC based on Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" that you can port into whatever game you're playing?

It's true! And you don't have to take my word for it. Here's an image! Undeniable proof of my claim!

My late birthday present from a friend! I only just started reading through it, but there are some interesting rules so far. I'm really excited to try it out, and I really hope my partner will try it with me!

Well since cybre.space's read-only-ening is being delayed until the end of December now, I'll just keep popping back in here to remind everyone following me that my new account is @robbie! It's a tiny instance, so I appreciate you following me there and helping some of my posts reach people!
Here's a great article by @elilla that explains how post availability works on the fediverse: wordsmith.social/elilla/a-futu

Hello friends! #FeatherWiki version 1.5.0 has been released, and it's smaller than ever and there's now only 2 builds: Warbler for servers & Wren for everyone else! Release notes:
https://codeberg.org/Alamantus/FeatherWiki/releases/tag/1.5.0

The website is updated too!
https://feather.wiki
If it was coming out 15–20 years ago, they would've made a Super Mario Bros The Movie The Game for GameCube/Wii with way-too-good art for the shitty collect-a-thon brawler with a repetitive 3-attack combo it would've been and like 4 voice stings from Chris Pratt amidst maybe 8 knockoff music tracks and sound effects. Bowser wouldn't be voiced by Jack Black in the game (just one of the developers) and also none of the other characters would be voiced at all (only text boxes using some default font). And you'd collect like gems or something as currency instead of coins because the execs don't know anything about Mario and didn't even bother to watch the movie trailer.

I've been seriously considering removing the bird names from the upcoming #FeatherWiki release, but after much consideration, I've decided that's depressing, so I'm thinking Wren for the regular version and maybe Warbler for the server version!

wait wait, so I don't see all replies? why is the hashtag search so broken? what do you mean, "don't make your account at mastodon.social", where do I join then? this user is here since 2018 but I don't see any toots in their profile page? where's the quote-retweet? how do I find people to follow??

A futuristic Mastodon introduction for 2021: Focusing on things that come up frequently and I don’t see explained that often.

I get to play D&D on Sunday, and I made a I think is gonna be really interesting! Meet Arböl Troskül, the dwarf druid-turned-warlock whose minor forest god patron (Chaotic Neutral) has big (secret) plans to become less minor disguised as an urge for him (Neutral Good) to learn everything he can about the world outside of his cult's community!

The character was drawn by an AI art bot, and then I colored it! Turned out really good I think!
