Time for another #introduction :
So hi everyone, I've been posting #rpg related stuff over on dice.camp and on reddit for quite a while now, decided to move here with a brandnew handle, yay.
husband, father, family physician and boats enthusiast when not gaming.
First Session of the "Octagon Campaign" went well:
Google will pay Apple 15 billion dollars to remain default Safari search engine in 2021 on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
This is the price of your personal data, Apple users.
Google knows how to move strategically to know everything about you and this is temible.
If your privacy is important for you you should think twice about what devices and software you use on your daily basis.
Hello! I'm looking for P&P-people that would be willing to talk (chat/mail) to me for an article. I'm planing a series for the weekly newspaper I'm working for, where I'll cover the basics and try to explain why different people love role-playing.
I'm especially interested in queer/lgbtiq rpg players and educators using rpgs in formal/non-formal education settings, but NOT exclusively.
It is of course possible to remain anonymous if that would be necessary.
Boosts are welcome, thank you!
Interesting post about the significance of long campaigns in old school gaming:
#EWS 3.0 rαE: Dank #Wesnoth und #WTactics! → https://www.1w6.org/deutsch/regeln/downloads/ews-30-rae-wesnoth-wtactics #1w6

eye opening #gming advice on happy jacks rpg podcast:
"what are the three moments in the game, that you can visualize in your head, the three things you want to see happen? Write those down, steer to that, and whenever you wonder what's gonna happen, go back to your three points".
Afficionados of Dungeon Crawl Classics! while I enjoy Appendix N literature and the tropes of dungeon crawling, I always get the impression that #dcc is just a tad too much tongue in cheek for my taste. The adventures I've come across all seem to assume a certain baseline gonzoness.
Am I mistaken? Or are there any "serious" adventures you could recommend? Or maybe you've played a serious campaign with DCC as the rules set? How about horror in DCC?
What's a generic way to construct equipment lists and currency systems for #ttrpg s?
For those of you who do their own equipment lists, currencies, price lists for their homebrew settings, where do you start? Some kind of boilerplate you'd recommend?
Today I stumbled over this blog post from 2016. Tim Kask mentioning, among other interesting things, opposed die rolls:
"they rolled a d20, the DM rolled a d20 and the DM made a ruling"
