me: *screaming into the abyss*
the abyss: this could have been an email
I'm Jim Crocker, a Gen X gamer whose spent most of his professional life in tabletop-adjacent spaces, as a store owner, event organizer, facilitator, and freelance creator and sales associate for IPR.
I run and play a lot of PBTA and adjacent story games. Happy to be part of the conversation here and looking forward to getting back to regular content creation and convention attendance after the utter chaos of the last few years.
Sherwood sold 72 copies in three weeks, which is nothing in Kickstarter terms, but blows away all of my other project's first month sales after launch, including Barrow Keep. So I've put together a Character Creation walkthrough for those outlaws out there.
Bundle of Holding currently has all six of Engine Publishing's bestselling system-neutral GMing books in DRM-free PDF for $10.
That's hundreds of pages of everything from NPCs (1,000) and plots (501) to GMing advice on session and campaign prep, improvisation, and running great sessions.
I loved working on and publishing these books. Getting them for less than the cost of, like, two cups of fancy coffee? Pretty danged awesome deal.
I believe the #ttrpg community relies too much on PDFs. It is cheaper (free), easier, and more accessible (to both creators and users) to produce games in other formats like HTML/CSS.
Here is a taste of #Decuma, my tarot-based world building game. It creates character connections, a map, NPCs, and world history/politics in 60-90 min! It's designed to be played before your #ttrpg campaign and works with any setting or system! #worldbuilding #sessionzero #indiedev #indiegame https://goldenlassogames.com/

are we doing #introduction ? we're tabletop hotdish, a minnesota printer focused on small ttrpg games and zines.
we also design rpgs but are kind of trying to move out of the growth-at-all-costs mindset there and take it a little slower.
Time for an introduction!
🎲 We publish role-playing games, story games, and worldbuilding games; from fantasy to science fiction to real-world stuff; as German originals and as translations.
🎨 We like it newbie-friendly, well-explained, and attractively designed.
🌈 Great games by marginalized creators are especially close to our heart in all of this.
