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!

tip for campaigns using XP:
You know that "fake" XP that you add when calculating the challenge of a multi-monster combat but you're not supposed to award?

Award it.

Fun story:

Remember how my driver's door handle is broken so you can't open it from the outside?

My wife locked herself out of the car while it was running, but I still had my key.

But the fob won't unlock the car if it's running.

The driver's door is the only one with a keyhole for manual entry, but its handle is broken.

Eventual solution: trunk has a keyhole, so she had to crawl in that way.

Just a liiiiittle late to work today, lol

Recently learned that someone made a dyslexia-friendly character sheet for and it's PWYW on the .

Pass it on for our dyslexic friends:

UPDATE: I guess "a while" is nearly a week, as the shop's availability and my wife's work schedule (we share a car) aren't playing nice together.

Also wondering what this is gonna cost. 😑

Today I opened the driver's side door of my car, heard a snap and the tinkling of a tiny piece of falling metal inside the door, and that door can no longer be opened from the outside. Guess I'll be crawling across from the passenger side for a while.

I've just updated one of my classes, the Aethermage.

I'd love to get it reviewed (blog, podcast, w/e), so if that's your jam, hit me up for a free review copy.

Product page is here if you want to have a look before deciding:

Boosts appreciated!

Today I learned that the famously long and elaborate Sailor Moon transformation sequence from the anime was only like 2 panels of sparkles in the manga.

That means at some point there was a meeting where somebody pointed at two panels and was like "This should be its own story arc."

I've made a public post on my Patreon (did you know I have a Patreon?) to ask what people would like to get as a reward for their patronage, especially at lower dollar amounts (mainly the $1 tier). I've been trying to do monthly giveaways but nobody seems very into it.

The post is public because if you're not a patron, I want to know what it would take to tempt you, so feel free to chime in!

Alrighty, here's my first product review on the blog!

Check out a newly published class called "the Magician"!

I'm going to be writing a school paper about videogames as an art form, and I need primary sources! Whether you are a developer or not, I would love to hear from you, the survey should take just a minute or two! Boosts would be appreciated to get more responses!
🎉​Here is the survey: goo.gl/forms/UpU2UQNEdiaw2R4w2

Rich people and poor people can fuck up in the exact same ways and have completely opposite outcomes. Poverty is not about individual choices.

I kinda want to make a "sequel" RPG to . Same setting, but a little closer to "normal" adventure-based gameplay.

Premise is that people understand the new magic better now, so naturally the rich and powerful are hoarding aether despite society now being reliant on it.

The PCs ignore laws about "stealing" this natural resource that's in the air all around them, kill the hoarders, and thereby save the world.
