Time for another :

So hi everyone, I've been posting related stuff over on and on reddit for quite a while now, decided to move here with a brandnew handle, yay.

I'm GMing a face to face campaign of original in (germany) for almost three years now, interested in all things , but there's also quite a bit of and on my bookshelf πŸ˜‰

husband, father, family physician and boats enthusiast when not gaming.

πŸ’¬ Das #Fediverse hat angeblich KEINE große Reichweite, deshalb werden viele hier nicht aktiv.

▢️ Lasst uns den Skeptiker*innen das GEGENTEIL beweisen!

Boosted und sternd bis die Zahlen glΓΌhen... πŸš€

Wir sind VIELE und haben RELEVANZ! βœ…

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

New issue of the free Cepheus Journal fanzine just dropped, full of weird aliens. It's specifically meant for Cepheus Engine/Traveller systems, but usually has good system-neutral ideas for almost any game.

It includes my article about Krull-inspired fantasy aliens.

Endlich – Swords & Wizardry in deutsch! Ihr ahnt nicht, wie lange und mit wieviel Hingabe an dieser Ausgabe gearbeitet wurde. Wenn ihr ein supergut spielbares, gut geschriebenes und extrem (!) vielseitiges komplettes OSR/Old School Regelwerk sucht, mit dem ihr nicht nur alle Klassiker, sondern auch die neuen coolen Sachen dieser kreativen Szene spielen kΓΆnnt - hier ist es. Ich bin etwas begeistert. 😍

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. ​:boost_love:​

Today I read a chapter in I'd only glossed over so far. The game contains actual rules to determine the age of societies in generations and millenia, when a society reached a certain tech level, when it stagnated or regressed, or when certain significant paradigm changes were achieved. Also, which tech level was reached, before some lost civilizaiton finally died out. Did it regress to dark ages? Did it transcend physical life, reach singularity or other planes? Fascinating ...

Some of my favorite supplements are the old 1980s Gamelords supplements, especially the Desert, Mountain, and Undersea Environment supplements. Lots of interesting details for extreme environments.

Currently they're over on the Bundle of Holding:

HΓΆre gerade Zock-Bock-Radio: Episode M: Traveller.

Lieblingsspiel, bemerkenswerter Podcast: great stuft!

@Moonmoth , talking original : rolling random encounters for the magical "sea of mists" sublevel of my odnd megadungeon I get:176 lawful buccaneers in two small galleys armed with ballistas. Their leader is a level 8 fighter, both ships captains are level 6 fighters. There are also two officers level 5 and 4. In their "lair" they've got a type A treasure and 18 prisoners. That's not just an encounter, it's a scenario hook! It's that scope I feel most retro clones are missing.

I've finished up my custom Classic Traveller character sheets to replace the boring original sheets. I've made versions in both Imperial red and Zhodani green.

hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you

please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u

To those of you who use minis in their games. What's your storage solution for all those minis? Any sort of specialised case or bag, you could recommend?

So @kensanata @presgas @phf @frotz let's hear your experiences with Helmbarten. I'm especially interested in the dice mechanic. You still use 2d6 roll under with increased number of dice to increase difficulty?

In T5 I sometimes find this mechanic a little odd, when suprisingly players don't need to roll at all since their effective target number is higher then 10 anyway ...

So who says is dead? posts get replied to, even after 23 (!) years ... πŸ˜…
... also the post is sort of tangentially about ...

There's an offer of Sly Flourish stuff over on bundle of holding. Any thought's experiences with those "Lazy Dungeon Master" stuff? Recommendations? I think I'd be most interested in "Fantastic Locations" ...
