#RPG – A one-page adventure for My Own Dungeon

Patreon and Subscribestar people get this for free, and there’ll be something just for supporters every week – fingers crossed – from now on, starting with snippets of Wightchester.

#RPG – RPG Design from Start to Finish video course RELEASED!

GET IT HERE

I have released a four hour video course aimed at priming new creators for unleashing their own independently produced RPGs onto the world.

For $19.99 you get all those videos, and worksheets that you can refer to throughout the process.

I don’t just cover the creation and writing of games, but also delve into marketing, sales points and other considerations you may find useful.

I also offer consultancy at $20 an hour for those who have more specific concerns or want some one-on-one advice.

I want to help YOU make and sell your games.

NB: I’d love some testimonials from people who have bought the course, or whom I have consulted for. I can only sell this product via Drivethru at the moment, as my store doesn’t allow such large files.

#RPG – Grimdark: Deadly, Nasty Rules for the World’s Most Ubiquitous RPG RELEASED!

BUY IT HERE!

(Hardcopy will be available soon, technically you can buy it now at Lulu, but I’m waiting on a quality check).

Many fantasy games, if not all of them, follow the lead given by Dungeons & Dragons, and rapidly become superheroic parodies of themselves. This has been especially true of the newer editions, since AD&D Second Edition. It’s great, but it’s not for everyone.

At least not all of the time.

There are many kinds of fantasy, and Dungeons & Dragons’ increasingly sanitised, fluffy, generic, high-escapist fantasy – dripping in magical weapons and character invulnerability, isn’t necessarily what people want.

A Grimdark game is in part made from difficulty. In this context, that has to come from encouraging the players to play tactically and carefully. To do everything they can to swing advantage in their favour. 

It’s also as much about encouraging players to deal with difficult and horrifying role-playing and decisionmaking consequences, all with less resources and power than they might be used to. It also encourages them, when necessary, to run away. 

We need to take that, lustrous, heroic, ‘fantasy-Portland’ edge off 5th Edition’s default rules-set, to amp up the difficulty and make people play more carefully. At the same time, we don’t want to just turn it into an unfair meatgrinder. 

So why not a game designer, literally known as ‘Grim’, to do it?

#RPG – NEW RELEASES! EroTech Gazetteer 2 and All New Autopsy Issue 2!

Yes, it’s true. You can get the new EroTech gazetteer now, but only directly from the Postmortem Studios store, or by signing up to Tabletopless.

Autopsy, on the other hand, you can buy as an electronic version, or get it in print from Lulu.com

Don’t say I never do anything for you.

#RPG – My Own Dungeon (with blackjack, and hookers) RELEASED

A single page, basic-bitch RPG you can fold up and carry around in your wallet for emergency adventures. It’s edgy or ‘artpunk’ or something. IDFK.

That’s it.

#RPG – Dragon Warriors Game Stream is Recruiting Players

Hello there!

With people starting to trickle back to work, our regular twice-a-week streamed game of Dragon Warriors has gotten a little thin on the ground. After having to had to miss a week due to illness, we had to cancel a game tonight due to lack of players.

That’s a shame.

As such, I’d very much like to extend an open invitation to anyone who’d care to join us on either our Tuesday or Saturday game slots, one or either (we just ignore the continuity error if a player can’t make it). We have space for, maybe, one or two more players.

We play from around 7:30pm UK (2:30pm EST), to around 10-11pm UK, depending how people feel. We run on Hangouts, and stream to Youtube. You don’t need to show your face – if you feel shy.

The system’s simple to pick up, and the best way to do so is to play, plus we have pregenerated characters to pick from, so all you really have to do is show up!

I intend to keep this going – running games online – into the future, long past COVID, running other games of all kinds. So if DW doesn’t take your fancy, perhaps something else will.

Drop a comment or hit me up on Twitter @grimachu or anywhere else you can find me.
