Some stuff I have made that might be of interest:

* "Deeds, not Words", a 3-player GM-less game about the amazing suffragettes, but generally about activism:

* "The poison of suspicion", a 2-player GM-less game about forgiveness and the meaning of life:

* "Black Wolf", my game for dark fantasy. Basically a Call of Cthulhu 7th hack:

* RPG software, scenarios I've written, and more:

Hey everybody, it's the first of the month again! That means it's time for another post! Before I post the themes, I'd like to apologize for vanishing after the first challenge. Life happened and social media took a back seat. I hope everybody has been staying safe and healthy.

Here are the themes for : determined, invasive, and iconoclast.

I'm starting to turn my notes into the final text for Blazko, my upcoming game about strength in diversity (and killing nazis).

I'm hoping I will have a first version sometime in the next two weeks, but we'll see.

WotC: What if all of these sapient species were not presented as subhuman?

Someones: But D&D isn't fun without violence!
