I‘m from Germany and I‘ve been playing RPGs for many years - over 20, I guess.
I love to write my own modules, and I am looking forward to try new worlds, new systems and just have fun with great people.
New stuff and OSR and some D&D, too. #introduction
We finished our 3-Level "Shadow of the Demon Lord" micro-campaign yesterday. I really enjoyed it - we had a fantastic group of six, and a good GM. I like the mechanical simplicity and the overall well-designed rules system, which worked well with a large group. I disliked the flood of talent - especially because the whole party levels up after each session and you'll get new stuff to learn *every* evening. It is a lot, even at Level 3. Still a great and very (!) dark RPG #tabletop #sotdl
TooManyParallelDoodleSyndrome has confused me thoroughly and i'll have to cancel two RPG sessions this week. O man, this sucks and I hate doodle.com-based RPG stuff. #tabletop
Just created a DCC character in a bar. I am a tireless recruiter for the hobby, for sure. #tabletop
Once again into the copyright and licensing wars with Michael Prescott:
You can’t really cancel a session because you are too tired, right? I could play a credible undead… :-) #tabletop
Recently, I had so many really great newcomers to the pen&paper hobby in my games and the majority of them is nothing like me - a classic example of the „straight white guy nerd in his 40s“ cliché. To say that his makes me feel a little bit happy would be a gigantic understatement. #tabletop
I just got my copy of DCC Lankhmar and I have to say this - I just love this box! The art, the writing and the focus on actually using this on the gaming table, you just feel the love that people put into this. I obviously love Leiber and Lankhmar, so I might be a bit biased - but this one is great, even if you want to play using a different system than DCC. #tabletop #dccrpg #pnpde
I like this text by @kensanata about running away in Pen&Paper - and especially, how to get players to realize that they should take a tactical retreat right now. https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2019-10-08_How_to_run_away #tabletop #pnpde
Doing a LOT of GM’ing lately - next is a new round of 4 players, 3 of them with absolutely no prior pen&paper experience. I did a lot of thinking how to introduce them to the hobby and I decided to put them through „Sailors on a Starless Sea“, the classic DCC funnel adventure. I am familiar with the module and it has *lots* of excitement per Minute. We’ll see how they deal with the deadliness of a funnel… #pnpde #dccrpg #tabletop
So, our first session in „Shadow of the Demon Lord“ was a success, I think. The system has some inspiration from the 5E (and the OSR, too), but also AGE, WHFRP and even DCC. Characters start classless and advance through specializations, with lots of random tables. It works well - combat is simple and still with some tactical elements. We built the party and finished our first adventure in one sitting, which is something I personally like. We will continue! #SotDL #tabletop #pnpde
