Still wandering around and figuring out what’s what, but now’s as good a time as any for my #introduction I suppose. Late 20s, life long RPGer, moved into board games at large around 2014. I’ve got an OK collection and lack a lot of experience. I really enjoy coming up with themes and corresponding mechanics for games. Beyond that, hobbyist Linux, (bad) musician, craft beer, and sports fan. He/him. Happy to be here and hope to get involved. Intros are weird.

#introduction
I discovered Mastodon a few days ago and this is my first Toot!

I'm an IT SysAdmin by day, aspiring tabletop game designer by night.

My life has always had a background of game play. I love their ability to immerse the players in situations, scenarios and feelings like no other medium.

I'm currently working on two tabletop games:
-An Ant based worker placement colony builder.
-Co-Op boss battler inspired by MMORPG raid bosses.

Special thanks to @robert for hosting.

#introduction
Hi, everyone! I'm super new to Mastodon, so many thanks to @big_chip for the welcome and the overview link. :)

I'm a long-time gamer across pretty much all gaming media. I love video games, board games, tabletop RPGs, puzzles, escape rooms, etc. I live in Canada, I love cats, and I don't actually steal pasta. I have a pasta maker, so I can make my own! My current favourite board game is probably a toss-up between Scythe and City of Iron, and my favourite TTRPG is Numenera. 👋

I write fiction and I play/GM Pathfinder & Starfinder. I'm trying to publish some stuff if you happen to be in the industry. I'm looking to talk about creating content for d&d and paizo RPGs. Thanks for letting me join the community!

Hello y'all

I adore tabletop gaming, and for the first time in a long time I'll be able to play again very soon. I'm super excited about that

I mostly have played D&D 3.5, though the new game I'm part of is 5e so that's been an interesting switch

I also really enjoy Vampire the Masquerade and Mage; I'd love to try Werewolf and other White Wolf games ^_^

Personal deets:

I am fat and I will fite you
I'm sweet unless you're rude

Avid TTRPG player/DM (mostly DM 5E lately). 5E/Pathfinder/Fiasco/FATE. I sometimes 3D print figurines.

Big fan of Sneak Attack, Titans of All'Terra, The Broadswords podcasts.

I enjoy lots of other games, some highlights would be Terra Mystica, Mansions of Madness, and Cursed Court.

If you play Star Realms online, send a challenge my way (Nestarion).

I build mechanical keyboards for fun; I generally rock an Ergodox, but I also own an Atreus62.

Hey there! LONG time D&D enthusiast (both player & DM) and other RPGS (Shadowrun, GURPS, RIft, White WOlf etc.). Current group of 4+ years together. 5e Faerun. Anyone still running Dark Sun?

I am also a recent fan of board games! I LOVE minis!, but love board games in general. Some faves so far - Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Zombicide, Elder Sign, and dungeon crawlers!

I also love ARPGS such as Diablo 3, Grim Dawn, Path of Exile, and Torchlight 2 :)
Thanks for the add!

Hi everyone. My friends and I are pretty new to tabletop games and we're currently on our second campaign (both played with Pathfinder). In this campaign (Carrion Crown) I'm playing as an Aasimar Cleric, in the last campaign I was a Half-Orc Bard. As I'm still new to all this I haven't quite figured out as to how to properly build a character and I'd love to see what other players have come up with character-wise.

Hey everyone, I'm Cze. I make battlemaps for DnD. I give them out weekly on Patreon. You can check that out here: patreon.com/czepeku I'm also starting work on an OSR zine. :)

A little self-promotion:

I just released the early access / beta version of my tabletop RPG, THIRSTY SWORD LESBIANS!

It's a feelings-focused game of crossing swords and falling in love, a celebration of queer power and affection!

Hello! I'm the DM of a relatively small group of beginner players, and a beginner myself. I've had interest in D&D for well over a year now and can finally play with friends!

I'm a student in secondary school, leaning heavily towards chemistry and physics.

If I were to play, I'd probably pick a sorcerer, or a pirate.
I wanted to join this community mostly to discuss homebrew.

And that's about it. See you around!

Howdy all. Besides being a table top gaming fan, I also do 3d work. I find I like to make 3d weapons quite a bit for practice. Wondering if there would be an interest here for such a thing? For use as references in games and what not?
Here's an example of stuff I have done in the recent past.

If you enjoy, please let me know and I will continue to post more. Maybe even take suggestions if popular enough.

The site won't let you add a FAQ to a Kickstarter until it launches, so here's a Google doc draft of the FAQ for the Kickstarter!
