Pinned toot

As some of you may know, I'm launching a game specifically designed to introduce newbies to the game. In particular, I'm hoping to offer an "in" to people who haven't felt welcome/safe to play before.

As such, I don't want them to feel like they need to buy something up front, so I'd like to have a couple of "table copies" of the PHB. If you want to help, you can contribute here:

Boosts also appreciated!

AAAAAAHHH!!!

That was faster than I anticipated! My new non-challenge-based fantasy , Journey Away, is now available for sale on DriveThruRPG!

Currently it's just the PDF version; there's still a bit to do before the print version can be sold.

But still! It's my game! I did that!

Don't worry, I won't be spamming the TL about it, but it *is* my livelihood, so maybe fill in the gap with some boosts? Thanks!

Hello Tabletop Social!

My name is Jacob, and I'm a fledgling new game designer, currently focusing on stuff, including brand-new games and content.

You can find all my creations here:

(This will include things I release in the future, so bookmark it!)

You can also get new games, art previews, beta docs, and more by supporting my work on Patreon:

Finally, check my bio for alt accounts and more!

Contacted the remaining two players, and they prefer to wait and start at the same time as everyone else, so the game is officially delayed until next week.

Welp, I guess my day's gonna be a lot different than planned.

Today is the first session of .

All but two of the players have had one-time scheduling issues come up today.

Plot twist! 🙃​

So is it finally "safe" to blow wildcards on shocklands in ? Am I understanding that right?

hi! my partner @cq is looking to commission an artist who does nature/animal drawings, specifically birds. please DM her if you are this or know someone who is. thank you!

(boosts ok and appreciated)

In other news, my wife coined the term "grouch potato" when expressing her plans for the evening, and I'm pretty happy about this new addition to my vocabulary.

Every time I decide it's time to sit down and figure out which elements of my game I want to put on paper in my notebook, I completely blank out.

I've finally started confirming people for my Newbieville game. Gonna start this Sunday!

I’m excited to make a big announcement!

I am launching a Patreon, where you can support my work and see more of it. The official launch will be January 23, one week from today!

If you like what I do and want to support me so I can keep creating, and if you want exclusive access to my art and process, you’ll want to check this out!

The Patreon page will also be a community for learning and inspiration through a private Discord Server. Anyone will be able to ask me about my process there.

In today's post, I go back to my worldbuilding endeavors and talk about my current ideas for planar cosmology:

Hey folks!

I've just been reminded that it's been a while since I mentioned this, so here's a freebie for all you players out in the Fediverse:

docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

This is a link to an electronic character sheet with color-coded fields and a bit of automation in the math. Just save a copy, fill in your ability scores and profs "Under the Hood", then fill in a few details on the Gameplay and Inventory/Spellcasting tabs, and you're set!

Enjoy!

My Monday group was playing Hoard of the Dragon Queen, which we finished last week.

Now I get to switch from DM to player as we tackle Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, which is great except...

I can't decide what to play. :(

Stats are already rolled (17/14/12/11/8/8) and all I know about anyone else is that one person wants to be a face of some sort.

Suggestions?

Does anyone have questions about leadership and games for the Leading with Class stream this week, planned for Wednesday on Twitch? Put them here!

John is partway through the editing for Ethics & Morality, by the way! That'll come out soon.

Check out the Patreon.com/Leadingwithclass if you haven't yet!

After a couple of months in the wild, the Aethermage class over on the DMs Guild has had its first revisions.

Today I learned that if you publish on the DMs Guild, you can't leave reviews for other people's products.
