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
Next preorder/crowdfunding: The german version of "Alas for the Awful Sea" by System Matters. #pbta #pnpde #tabletop
All this conversation about Fate reminds me to GM another round in the near future... but I also need to play Over The Edge and DCC Lankhmar, first of all...! #tabletop
„ich würd gern mehr über sowas reden: Vor sechzig Jahren finanzierte ein Gehalt ein Häuschen mit Garten und ein Auto für die vierköpfige Familie. Heute leben zwei Doppelverdiener mit einem Kind in einer Mietwohnung aus Rigips-Platten. https://t.co/K3P3mawao6 via @nzz“
I admit it: I really like how friendly and positive the #dcc-rpg community as a whole appears to me.
"Pausing campaign" fills me with dread. It's not that I don't have any other tabletop stuff running ATM, but I like this one and I fear for its feature. But then, they will only play 5E and won't accept any other GM until the regular GM is availlable again. Grrrr. I would have loved to run fill-in adventures...
Goodman Games just publishesd a nice little Profile on Lord Dunsany, one of my all time favorites. I just love Dunsany and perhaps YOU should try his stuff, too. A lot of it is public domain… just sayin'.
Just ended our 2-part Adventure in #DungeonWorld. I nearly forgot how much fun this game is and how well it works with a good GM and active players. I really want to continue playing my barbarian Fionn the Insatiable! Actually, I tend to play barbarian dunderheads with some added depth - should that tell me something about myself? Hmm. :-P #tabletop #pbtA
I was told again that combat in RPGs is the most boring, most repetitive part of a fantasy campaign. It should not be either. Every skirmish should be unique and memorable and fun and it is relatively easy to do, i think. I’ll probably put something to paper on this. #tabletop
Some thoughts: There are days when "all out combat!" just works great. I tend to believe thant "fun combat" is mostly "something does not work out as planned". My group is not big on battle tactice and careful planning UNTIL something/someone fails in a spectacular fashion and they have to be creative to save the day.
I can see why some people like to have lots of chaos and random stuff in their combat and spellcasting rules.
UPDATE/CORRECTION: I have a 3000 word #steampunk #ttrpg piece that needs a diversity review by 13 June. The reviewer must be a PoC, and preferably a black woman from the American South, as that's the character involved. FASA Games Inc. will pay the going rate. Please contact me privately if interested.
The BBC and Michael Moorcock are trying to do a Hawkmoon TV series! Really kinda excited to read this - I really hope this gets made.
Y’know, there are some Kickstarter projects I support because they are just SO cool and inspiring to me - I just love the art design of MÖRK BORG and it’s attitude in general. Plus, they are not asking for that much money for the physical books. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jnohr/mork-borg #tabletop #osr #kickstarter
So I decided to leave my budding Earthdawn round - 7 weeks in and not a single character built, but lots of talk and intricate planning done by the GM. I feel bad for leaving them, because they are quite nice people. Still, I feel like this rules-heavy and ultra-detailed way of playing does no longer fit into my life - me being 44 and working full time - also, my tastes have changed a LOT towards faster, looser styles, be it more into direction of the old school or storytelling.
