@Alamantus yeah, I’m putting up my stuff on both, too. I was just curious as to which was a stronger sales driver. Especially since, if I recall correctly, itch.io takes a smaller cut
@dapperbear I personally prefer Itch.io, but I've mostly used it for video games. It does apparently generate sales, but all my stuff there is free, so I don't know from that front.
My upcoming release is going to be on *both* Itch and DTRPG because the more options you provide, the more people can potentially discover/buy it! Also, DTRPG offers print-on-demand, which is just generally cool.
tl;dr: why not both?
@ossifog “lol random”, “fuck you, Imma do what I want”, “chaotic stupid”, “what would piss off the paladin most?”
Adventurers using chronic medical conditions to their advantage.
Wizard with chronic nosebleeds starts using blood magic. “Well, I have it *right here*.”
Fighter with a missing hand. “Strap a sword to my arm and I’m good.”
Blind rogue: “I can’t see them, they can’t see me!” “Uh, that’s not how it w-“ “I CAN’T SEE THEM, THEY CAN’T SEE ME.”
A friend is going to run a (one-shot?) superhero game for me for my birthday & I’m trying to decide on what power/s I want. It’ll depend on the system, of course, but I love weird or minor powers used in unusual ways, so I’m trying to think of stuff I could get away with. Like, I get sound control & use it to make my own theme music. Or X-ray vision and use it for actual medical X-rays as a doctor. Stuff like that
@dapperbear a ring or necklace that provides a bonus to charisma :v that'd be real handy in job interviews
@dapperbear Some sort of health amulet or even a single use potion kept just in case. Man, once you turn 30 you start to feel the unavoidable pull of entropy on your body.
@Yoric sounds kinda like the video game Dungeon Keeper. There’s also a card game called Boss Monster that you may want to look at for inspiration/avoiding retreading old ground.
Pot metal magic swords. *technically* magic w/ that +1, but bend & deform shape incredibly easily.
Magic aura spell. Can be used on any item. Literally the only thing is does is create a magic aura. It doesn’t actually *do* anything or give any special abilities; it just registers as “yes” on Detect Magic checks.
Gourmet’s Bane: a magic cloth/sack/water skin that will generate a nigh endless amount of safe, nutritious food/water, but it’s the foulest stuff you ever tasted.
Well. I guess I hit the big time? I did a reverse image search of our logo both in the brown and b&w versions and found 2 twitter accounts using it as their profile pic and 2 companies on FB using it. Looks like one has it on their actual physical signage, too. Of course, each & every one of these is outside the USA, so there’s not a lot I can do other than ask them to stop.
Kinda pissed, tbh
Hello everyone! Sorry about my long silence; I had some health issues that laid me out for a while. But good news! I'm back, healthy as ever, and managed to get a couple of small games made for some game jams over at itchio! May I present:
The Medieval Times, a game where ex-adventurers become the fantasy world's first investigative journalists! https://dapperbear.itch.io/the-medieval-times-journalistic-excellence
One Spell Per Day, a solo game where you play Bumblefoot the Wizard on one spell per day! https://dapperbear.itch.io/one-spell-per-day
Happy Love Day!
Whatever your relationship status, today is a day we can all come together and say “fuck the haters!*”
*specific identification TBD
So you know what, let’s talk about what you love. Specifically, what are some TT games you love? These can be anything; I just want to see y’all loving what you play. ❤️💛💙🎲
@dapperbear Depends on how much effort they have put into training said animal. If they just got it and it's not much more than I summoned this thing! Then I'll run it but as the game goes on and it develops a personality I give them more and more control over it.
