Time for an . Hi, I'm a guy/he from France. As a hobby, I'm
a Role-player (mostly GM), Storyteller, Improv actor. Also, GM-ing for children.

I'm quite on the narrative side.

I have recently published my first DriveThruRPG product and I'm working on two more. More self-promotion later :)

I have played a few games of Les Poilus. It's a game set during WWI and I like it a lot.

In this game, the enemy is war itself. You're playing a bunch of friends who ended up in the trenches together and try to survive together. You lose if a mission proves deadly, if you spend too much time on the frontlines, or if any of the friends is too much broken by the war.

I love the idea & mechanics. Everyone is trying to save the others, with extremely limited resources.

Tomorrow night, the September pre-beta release of my game goes live for patrons. It's getting closer and closer to being ready for playtest. Really want to get this out and see what people actually think about it. Just wish feedback was more prevalent. So much of the time, like any writer, I put stuff out and there's not even crickets chirping. Visual and performing artists get a lot more feedback from their audience.

More money problems 

I've been saying for years that the indie RPG Ganakagok was the right system for playing The Dark Crystal. Both are stories about a massive impending change, and how that looming event forces a small group of people onto an epic quest, while most of the world fights back against them and the oncoming change.

The new TV show only reinforces my belief in this.

So anyway, here is a variant deck I made for playing The Dark Crystal via Ganakagok:

Amazon's attempt to control the book world extends everywhere, they own the following:

Goodreads
Abebooks
Librarything (40%, through Abebooks)
Kindle
Audible

You don't have to get your books from Amazon or use Amazon book services. There are much more ethical alternatives available:

switching.social/ethical-alter

Some of these alternatives are also on the Fediverse:

Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )

Je comprends pas pourquoi ça dérange les mecs de Génération Identitaire d'avoir pris 6 mois ferme.

Je croyais que "La prison c'est le club Med, ils ont la TV et snap" 🧐

Why am I just now finding out about gigworker.com and its focus on the hellscape our economy has become? The site is this weird mishmosh of tips for surviving the financial apocalypse and cheerleading for the capitalist theories that caused it.

I have to find lodging in Nashville immediately. My wife's parents have never liked me, and have become overtly hostile with her not being here. I had to apologize for needing to do laundry. How the hell am I supposed to start a new job like this?

I love the labels she used for the blog post: campaigns i want to run, links, mechanics i want to use, treasures i want to steal. Perfect. 😃

This really showcases the power of board games to not only be leisure but also a talking point where we can learn something

A jam to design introductory tabletop RPGs:

I wonder if someone has tested . The kickstarter page looks very interesting, but light on details.

So I'm looking for a job, but finding livable game design jobs is like chasing unicorns, so that means I'm looking for a job that I don't actually want.

So I'm looking for something livable and bearable and attainable.

My main qualifications are basic office competence, just under a decade as a billing rep, and whatever I can spin my game design experience as.

What does that add up to? What job titles should I be putting in search bars?

❓​❓​❓​❓​❓​

I'm looking for a kid-friendly management videogame. Preferably something not too stressful, indies & oldies welcome.

Said kid may have access to Windows, Linux, MacOS and Android.

Any ideas?

Guckt jemand The Good Place auf deutsch? Ich hab Fragen! 

I've just improv-GMed a Modern Psychological Horror game based on (what I've read of) life at an Amazon warehouse.

Reflecting on this, the scariest part is that the nightmares scenes were way less disturbing that the actual work scenes.
