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
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.
“This is the first in a series of posts that try to say something about the theory of the OSR style of play … Recently I have been reading a lot of story games … For me this process has been tremendously clarifying. I think what they do is really neat, and seeing how it's different from what we do helps me to understand why we do some of things we do.”
Gene Wolfe has died. I must say that I was a big fan and thought he was one of the best authors using the english language in any genre. https://www.tor.com/2019/04/15/gene-wolfe-in-memoriam-1931-2019/
This photo of Dr Bouman deserves to be one of the classic images in physics. Amazing to capture the first glimpse. Such a genuine response
Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press.
Amazing work. And here’s to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) 💥🔥☄️
Day 1 hit the 20% mark! What an awesome start!
Let's keep up the momentum!
Oh. My. I just love Glorantha, just love RuneQuest and this english language panel for the new edition is just so inspiring to me! (There is some info on the german version, but mostly chaosium stuff). Can't wait for RuneQuest Glorantha, but…another complex setting for me? Ouch. I probably need this anyway. https://youtu.be/pq_7G-fZyhQ #Runequest #glorantha #need10dayweek
