just got my system ripped apart by one of my play testers. granted, it's all stuff i had a feeling was a problem, but damn... having it all laid out like that really sucked.
what makes it absolutely awful is that I have no idea how to fix it. :(

How do you fellow game designers keep from burning yourselves out?
I feel like I've reached a wall, where I just don't want to work on my games. Doesn't matter what project it is, I just can't push myself to work on it.
I feel guilty about not working on it, yet I can't bring myself to. Is this normal? Is there some solution I'm missing here?
#introduction Hi. I was linked to Mastodon via NonCompete on youtube, and I decided to check it out.
My name is Brian, I'm 23, he/they, I play a lot of D&D online, and I'm currently studying for a 2-year degree in game design.
I enjoy strategy & card games, I'm an amateur artist, and I have a special interest in psychology, communications, ethics and game theory.
Also I'm entirely new to mastodon, so apologies in advance for not knowing how anything works :P
I now have experimental mechanics for moving, controlling the ball, shoving minifigs of the way.
I still need mechanics for shooting and passing the ball, kicking off and, er, dismantling minifigs.
If anybody wants to help, the doc is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ldykFS1qRdWbrehW_WZDrYo18gzmmXnw7S0bP17mIsE/edit?usp=sharing . I have 6 days to fulfill my promise :)
Also, I apparently promised to call this game #legrick, so I guess that's the official name.

1: Golgari wood elf druid. She has lots of saproling minions. So cute <3
2: Boros human paladin. She's pretty simple, but being played by one of my oldest player pals. :)
3: Izzet elf warlock. He's a spookum.
4: Gruul werewolf monk. ...i have no idea how this is gonna end up, but hey, she sounds fun. xD
5: Dimir elf rogue. ALL THE PLANS, Y'ALL. ALL OF THEM.
this is gonna be a fun game.

So. Which of these two options would everyone prefer?
1: A new RPG coming out as a single, expensive, HUGE book with everything about the game in it, or...
2: A new RPG coming out with a smaller core rulebook, and following up with cheaper supplements that add new features over the course of a year or two.
