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 :)

@Gargron , just giving you a heads up that Donald Trump is using Mastodon to create a right-wing (possibly neo-Nazi) social media site and violating Mastodon's license while he's doing it.

For an upcoming ttrpg session, I'm looking for an existing story that isn't a horror story per se but could be turned into one by turning up a few knobs.

For instance, the Big Bad Wolf, Dr. Moriarty or any modern dictator could easily be used as horror villains, but they're all a bit too cliché for my tastes.

Any suggestions?

Job posting valid as of 23 July 2021:
Customer communications manager, healthcare IT company, based in Nashville but remote-first. DM me for details.

2. Unions (and organising groups) cannot expect their communities to support them if they're not supporting their communities. (Yet, this is a bit too common.) 

It's telling that the lessons people take from labour history aren't the more mundane ones about building communities; they pay attention to protest tactics and forget *community organising*.

So here's a relatively recent example:

If your strike is going to *hurt* your community, you need to mitigate that. The West Virginia Teachers Strike a few years back recognised this. They *learned* (because a lot of teachers weren't aware) that some of the kids in their community would go hungry if teachers went on strike (because they couldn't access the breakfast/lunch at school).

What did some of these teachers do? They took food to those families, ensuring they didn't go hungry.

This kind of work needs to happen *more often*. Not only does it enable longer and more effective strike action, but it *helps the community support you* because you're thinking of them.

I don't see this very often, and we need more of it.

Turning the movie Infinite into a TTRPG 

Just watched _Infinite_. Didn't like it. The ending situation sounds like a good setting for a TTRPG, though.

Our world. ~500 people have perfect memory of all their past lives. Among them, ~200 were trapped desincarnated for up to 40 years by the Enemy.

13 years ago, the Enemy was beaten and captives were all reborn. They're now teenagers with mad skillz. Now that the Enemy is gone, old enmities can return. Also, who's who?

Kinda kung-fu Nephilim.

Latest count for _The Parable Of The Hunter_: 19 pages/exactly 6,500 words.

Slowly, slowly, it takes form :)

I have launched a little podcast called "Le doigt dans l'engrenage" where I share music tracks I create.
You can listen to it here:

You're free to use it for actual plays (with credit). Feel free to tell me what you think about it, I'm just beginning.

We are starting an RPG group for non-men. If you say you're not a man, you aren't. Just a couple more spaces left.

Every group I have ever been part of has been majority male and I just want a different vibe for once!

Will be Discord based (or similar) and Uk timezone, monday afternoon/evenings probably. Discussions on game are happening, we have a few people willing to DM so will likely do rotation to keep things fresh.

Message me to join!

- Horrors: the lynchpin of an Accursery, a human being who fell to Despair and was turned into something inhuman;
- the Ember Treaty/the Ember Chambers: the treaty and its implementation, something between a lay Inquisition and a Interpol with full powers and no technology, dedicated preventing Accurseries, hunting down Horrors and controlling the population of Curse Eaters;
- a Familiarch: the absolute leader of an extended family.

Hey everyone, there are some names and words I've made up for _The Parable of the Hunter_, a ttrpg of post-industrial horror on which I'm working. I'm interested in feedback!

- an Accursery: a supernatural phenomenon that turns communities into something... evil;
- the Despair: the cause of Accurseries, itself caused by a community having outcasts, scapegoats and not taking care of their own;
- Accursery Eaters: the Player Characters, cursed to hunt Accurseries;

Are there any sandbox first person shooters that have co-op? Like, besides fallout 76. I just wanna roam around an area with a buddy and shoot things occasionally.

Pimping my friend's, @vicorva , Kickstarter all over the place today.

It's for a novel AND an accompanying TTRPG!

It's already fully funded, and the stretch goals are reached. There's 4 days left on the kickstarter.

AND: It's Queer and Autistic!

I think I'm going to follow @WanderingBeekeeper 's example and start bragging about the number of words in my current work, in the hope that it can help me stay motivated until it's finished. I have too many unfinished projects lying around.

So, here we go.

My latest foray into tabletop rpg settings, _The Parable of the Hunter_ is currently at 2,691 words. It's not much, but it's a start :)
