Hi there, tabletop.social! I guess here is my #introduction.
I'm a forever DM who also enjoys the artistic and DIY aspects of the ttRPG hobby, even though I'm not particularly good at those parts.
Something interesting I did: I ran The Lost Mines of Phandelver from the D&D 5e Starter Set with a group for at least 25 sessions over the course of an entire year. Of course I added stuff, but that was the core.
I also like rules-lite games like Knave and d6-based games like Barbarians of Lemuria.
@rimraf welcome! This is definitely the community for those things. Many DMs crafter and designers amongst us.
@FASA_Andrew_1879 thanks for the vote of confidence! I have thoughts and ideas but I'm not experienced or knowledgeable enough to just bang out blog posts with any authority. Posting here seems like a good first step towards that goal.
@rimraf 500 characters at a time. I wrote a little over 80,000 words on the #FASA1879 blog last year, but it wasn't done all at once. One post a week, 52 posts, did not miss a week the entire year, and it added up. If you do the math, it's about 1600 words per week, and just maintaining a steady pace. That's doable. 1600 is kind of a slow day for me, I like to hit 2000 a day when I'm writing for the day and not dealing with dayjob crap.
