Out of Time - A Game Created for the 24-hour RPG and 200 Word RPG

I submitted a game for the 200 Word RPG, Out of Time. It is a time travel story of a person trying to defeat an enemy that his older self did not defeat. The RPG Geek 24 Hour RPG was going on during the same period, so I expanded that terse presentation over the rest of the 24 hours, creating the entry Out of Time - Expanded.

It was an interesting process; I'm not sure if the end result of the longer product is better, or just more verbose. But I finally used GM Binder, a patreon that I've been supporting for a while because I liked the idea of it. It turned out to be just as great as the idea seemed for short form publications. It was a lot easier than opening Affinity Publisher to layout something that brief.

Voting is going on now for the 24 hour rpg (link), and there are a lot of great entries there if you're interested in taking a look.

The 200 Word RPG version can also be found on my blog- http://www.chuckdee.net/?blog/outoftime. I'll be posting the Expanded version there, also.

Let me know what you think if you decide to read it!

There's actually several hashtags used for tabletop gaming:

#TTRPGs
#TabletopGames
#TabletopRPGs
#GameDesign
#RPGDesign

We don't really have a community equivalent of the #Checkin though... and the gamers are not as active as they were last year...

I put out posts for specific blogs for folks to be aware that they exist but I'm not an OSR person myself, but am a TTRPG player when I can and like to stay up on things.

Recommended to try looking for folks using a variety of links in posts:

7. How to increase accessibility?

I never really thought about accessibility until I saw Jacob Wood's Accessible Guide to RPG Layout. I still don't think about it as much as I probably should, but since that was one of my firsts texts after I started laying out my own games, I keep a lot of it in mind- especially in regards to font choice and colors.

5. Character or worldbuilding?

Image/Photo

I have reams full of characters. It's one of the first things that I try when I get a new system. It's one of the first areas of concentration in my designs. That said, the characters cannot stand alone and a world that is suited to the characters, and the characters are suited to, is key in bringing any narrative alive. So as I create the characters, they breathe life into my concepts for the worlds.

I tend to build characters more than worlds, but the worlds I spend more time upon. All that said, I really can't choose between the two.
