Pinned toot

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:

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!

I did it! The official PDF version of the GUTS+ Rule Book is now released and available to purchase for $4.99!

alamantus.itch.io/guts-plus

I also made a post about what makes it special since the rules are already available on the website for free:

guts.plus/posts/2019-11-12-off

I think it turned out great! If you end up buying it, please let me know what you think, too!

Goggles of the Unseen:
Narrow and uncomfortable goggles that both allow the wearer to see invisible objects and also make the wearer invisible. The goggles themselves, however, remain visible at all times.

OH YEAH

Guys I am going to take a moment and remind you all that if you love Mastodon, you should tip your server.

Ahem.

By that I mean, if your Instance Admin has a tipjar or a Patreon, throw a few bucks in it.

For :tootplanet: that's @InspectorCaracal / @Support and patreon.com/tootplanet

You might ask yourself: How much is it worth to me to not have ads?

To not have algorithms?

To have competent, caring administration?

Or just ask yourself "how much does this cost to run?"

Tiny Islands by David King (dr-d-king.itch.io/tiny-islands) is something truly special.

This game 100% deserves a physical tabletop version. All you'd need is a deck of cards, a whiteboard with a grid, and dry-erase markers, and it'd be perfect!

Well, I wasn't actually able to make time to work on the last editing pass for my GUTS+ PDF, so I'll be making another announcement hopefully later this week with another date!

I'm doing one last editing pass on my GUTS+ PDF rule book before I finally release it on November 6th! It's been a long time coming, but it's finally in a place that is stable enough to merit a printable version!

It's going to be $4.99 to buy from either DriveThruRPG or Itch.io with perpetual access to any updated versions in the future! I'm also going to release a nice 6x9 physical version through DriveThruRPG at some point soon after, but that's later.

So stay tuned for links!

50 Knights from prose, poetry, and balladry to ride out into your D&D game! A nigh infinite host of randomly assembled chevaliers to call upon your campaign!

If you've ever felt like was too rules-heavy and combat-oriented for your fantasy roleplaying preferences, you might be interested in this:

jacobskellogg.itch.io/aoa-play

It's a (free!) playtest packet, just a few pages, for a fantasy RPG that's much more flexible and open-ended than D&D is.

You can learn the game, make a character, and still have time for gameplay, all in a single sitting.

Check it out!

🍄 Mycotia! 🍄

Y'all ever just have two (2) distinct species of Mushroom creatures?

Please feel free to make one of these little friends!
If you do, please link back to this/credit me!

Also if you have any questions, please ask!

I made a new D&D character, Maximilian Goodfatherson, who's the most generic superhero-y paladin possible who will do whatever he can to help whoever he can. He's definitely not a barbarian and his overly-chipped greatsword that he doesn't know how to use definitely isn't just a greatclub, and his noble steed definitely isn't just a farm workhorse. Certainly not!

Hey tabletop! I'm messing with an idea. It's a service called "Multi User Story Engine", or MUSE!

It's meant to help people make stories together!

You can see my notes on the idea here
gist.github.com/kinostl/67b2fd

I'm starting it off purely as telnet, but looking into ways to make it work with a web interface and possibly federalized programs.

You can see my progress and source code here. It's MIT license so feel free to fork it for your own purposes.

Finally!

After a Kickstarter all the way back in May and months of development hiccups, I've finally launched the Deck of Many Names, a card-based solution for generating NPC details on the fly when players inevitably befriend a cardboard cutout!

It's faster and more inclusive than online random generators, and you can just tuck the card into your notes instead of writing stuff down.

A player has resigned from my ongoing GUTS+ campaign, so it's time to see if anyone in the Fediverse might be interested in joining in! It's an urban fantasy setting where plants are being given destructive sentience by a science conglomerate that just so happens to be run by aliens.

Its tone is a mix of lighthearted fun and mildly serious themes (like Nintendo's ), and you can read up and join here if you're interested:

Looking for a Black, preferably LGBT, sensitivity reader for a new project! This is a paid gig!

Interested? Email hthrflowers@gmail.com with your credentials!

Please boost!

A dark gritty reboot of Captain Planet as the eco-terrorist everyone secretly roots for; like Robin Hood except he attacks the root causes of the climate crisis.

I got another email from a listener to my podcast and it's amazing how good that feels. I really should send more emails thanking people for this or that, or leave comments on their blog just to tell them I liked what I saw.

If you're a ttrpg designer on itch.io, Evil Hat might feature you in their newsletter. Full details on twitter: twitter.com/fredhicks/status/1
