Pinned toot

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 😉

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

@Judd noble rider of dragons, listening to your reply - nay challenge! to Andy Goodman gave me a good laugh! Whoever will be your second shall feel honoured!

Thanks for your awesome podcast btw. I've been a quiet listener for quite some time already ...

So, I'm thinking about a way to loosely define NPCs in a system neutral supplement.

So far each NPC has three categories to describe "Appearance", "Motivation" and "Traits".

Now the fourth category I'm thinking about should contain things the NPC might have or could provide: anything from simple treasure to dark secrets and information the PCs are looking for. What would be a good one word title for this category? "Assets" maybe?

Don't know why I learned about Dorkness Rising only yesterday ... so if a low budget but non the less brilliantly hilarious take on dungeon delving is your thing:

@Tealk hattest Du Dir Stätten der Verdammnis eigentlich mal angeguckt?

6 mile hexes are huge, it takes about 5 minutes driving at highway speed to cross one hex ...

Has anyone bumped in to any concrete numbers over the environment impact of our usage of suboptimal software, eg js+web tech instead of native desktop apps, the power usage of crypto currencies, the cost of constantly brute forcing problems instead of elegant solutions?

Any data is much appreciated - it trying to write something intelligent about this.

Shouldn't you be thinking about minotaurs?

anybody interested in playing some #Indie and small press #RPG via good old postal mail? we could game on a casual basis and help fight for the #USPS. #TTRPG

So @mamadm @presgas what do you guys think, how should we start the "Wilderness Hexplore Revamped" project? A markdown file on github or somewhere else, or start out with a shared google doc 😬 ?

I asked Jed if he wants to join the effort, too. In any case he'll be credited original author ...

@presgas I almost think I remember you writing something about being an instigator ;-)

Guess we should get this moving, we might even end up with a crowd sourced floss printable hex crawl generator 😅

My interest in rpgs developes in phases: there's the phase, the phase, and there used to be a phase too. Right now I'm happily in the phase once again.

I even plan with these phases in mind. When I find something interesting for gurps right now, I put it aside, knowing the next gurps phase will be there eventually.

Now I just hope my osr phase will last until we pick up our od&d game once more 😅
