Thinking I need another player for my Spelljammer game as we've had a few drop out. Have a look at tavern-keeper.com/campaign/393 if you are interested...

I have seen on G+ a lot of gamers stating that they ate migrating to MeWe. I installed the Android app and was immediately turned off. I really hope that Mastodon + Google Drive for file sharing wins the day because I am burnt out on yet another proprietary social network. :crit_fail:

I find it awesome and encouraging to see so many +Refugees arriving here. :blue_elf:

Apparently Google+ is going to close in 10 month. There must be hundreds of role-players looking for a Mastodon instance!
Welcome, all y’alls!!

I wonder what kind of bump Mastodon will get now that G+ is shutting down. 🤔

@scottmortimer I played MouseGuard once, but the GM was very new, so I knew nothing about these conditions!

I might actually adapt the concept of the emotional conditions to apply to my RPG system if I can figure out how to make it distinct enough.

Thanks for sharing!

Why Mouse Guard Handles Failure Better Than Any Other RPG

I’ve written about Mouse Guard’s qualities before. It’s one of my favorite systems, from its core dice mechanic to its setting and flavor. But some things are better appreciated with a bit of perspective, and ...

I don’t normally do political posts here, as that’s not the purpose of this account, but if you’re 18 years old or more and a USAian, take a few minutes today to verify that you’re registered to vote &/or take the time to register. Sooner is better, just to make sure you don’t hit deadlines. I’m not telling you how to vote, but please vote this November. Thanks!

Reviews from R'lyeh: Unstrange Things

Published by Bloat Games following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Dark Places & Demogorgons: The Roleplaying Game is a Old School Rennaisence roleplaying game, which as its title suggests and as its tag line—‘In the 1980s STRANGE THINGS happened everywhere!’—suggests is heavily influenced by Stranger Things.

Another go at explaining what some people think "Old School" means. I like it, not the least because of the great artwork by Evlyn Moreau. I think this is about 90% applicable to the way I run games (even if it only covers 70% of the way I run games, more on that later maybe), and the last two pages which address players are a good start to know how to play in my campaign.

I finished DMing my second session (ever) today, and I had no idea I'd get hooked so fast. I love DMing, I get so happy watching the players have a great time! And there's not a lot that beats the feeling you get when your players express how excited they are to continue playing, and that they think you're doing really good as a DM. Guess I must be doing something right!

Customizing a Campaign for Your Players
