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

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!

If you're interested in privacy online, there's an excellent website called DarkPatterns.org which explores the dirty tricks some sites use:

I just realized I have 3 really solid environments for GUTS+ campaigns that I can develop—a fantasy one, a modern one, and a cyberpunk-y future one.

I also went on Kickstarter for the first time in a while and I have delusions of creating a campaign for fleshing them out into books and hiring an artist for making nice art in them!

I probably won't do it, but it always needles the back of my mind whenever I remember...

Wow, we had a smaller group for today and it was one of the most focused and productive sessions we've had in a looong time!

My selfish kobold knight landed the killing blows on 2 out of 3 of the baddies we fought, and he looted 2 bows (one of which was magical in a way he doesn't know about yet) because he didn't have any ranged weapons and wanted one!

Also, did you know you can stab ghosts?? It does half damage, but that's still more than I expected!

I just discovered Glyphr today, which is a free online font maker with what appears to be a nice, easy-to-use inteface for making fonts! My only experience for making fonts is FontForge, so having a nicer interface is very welcome!

glyphrstudio.com

I'm excited to figure out how to use this for making #conscript fonts for my #conlangs!

#glossopoeia #conlanging

I had a new idea for a new #conlang. Only /a/ in the vowels and /p b t d k g ʔ m n s ʃ l/ in the consonants with a nice, flowing script.

It's called Badagabada (BDGBD), meaning roughly "words of words".

I mainly just want to have a flowing script for a change because I'm tired of all of my old rune-styled ones...

#glossopoeia #conlanging #conscript

Inspired by the alt text for today's XKCD (xkcd.com/2191/):

A magic system where the more words you use to cast a spell, the more powerful or effective the spell ends up being. This includes small-scale spells, for example, say a spell to create a spark for lighting fires is "ignite a spark", you could make a small, stunning explosion by drawing it out like "ignite a spark meant to light a flame but let its brightness be blinding!"

Or something.

...

words.

Hmm, could a one-page Shadow of the Colossus-like RPG exist?

Maybe.

Continuing to remember things that have happened since I was last here:

I'm working on a new called that's set in the world of but is an anticapitalist adventure game about how aether/magic is a freely accessible resource but the use of it outside expensive academies has been shamed so only the rich use magic.

Very early proof of concept doc is free on itch:

What are some good or generally nice RSS feeds that I can follow?

On a related note, I see submitted games that are pay-only (i.e. not free/choose your price) in not only this game jam but also others I've looked at on Itch, and that's something I've never seen in the game jam scene before!

I was sure the whole idea of game jams was that you make them free so everyone can try them out and give a review of your work... Hmm

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

I just played SKATER+ with some of the guys from my D&D group and it was really good!! I'm so excited! Haha 😃

I added another 500 words, and I'm done with the rules... I guess the rest will have to be examples!

Check out the skate park areas, though! The GM builds the skate park with 4-9 of these!

Oof, I'm nearly done with the rules for SKATER+, but I'm only at 1900 words out of the required 5000+... guess I've gotta think up some Sk8r Lore to add to the game!!!

Greetings, new users! Welcome to Mastodon and the greater Fediverse!

You may want to consult my Increasingly Less-Brief Guide to Mastodon: github.com/joyeusenoelle/Guide

It covers topics like:

* How do I get verified on Mastodon?
* Why should I caption my images?
* What the hell is with all the pineapples?

Oh man, my game is really coming along! I love the term "beefing it" for falling, and I'm leaning into as much sk8r lingo as I can think of. 😃
