Worried about the physical contact of tabletop gaming?

Check out my latest article where I suggest some great board games that have little to no physical interaction and offer some hacks for games that do to reduce contact:


Note: in the case of the current crisis this is not meant to encourage people to go out or have people over to game, this is about spending time with the people you are already in contact with regularly.

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!

#RPGs I bought at #luccacomicsandgames2019

On might thews: this has been on my list for ages, I'm eager to try it but it mixes fantasy adventure setting with a simple story driven system, it should be perfect for my tastes

Microscope: I didn't know but I'm credited at the end of the Italian edition because the publishers decided to bring it to Italy after they played a demo with me at a convention a few years ago. I was so honored! I bought the game and made them sign it :3

Burning opera: I worked on the translation/editing and got my free copy, yay!

The Warren: now that the pbta-invasion is over, I can read a pbta without feeling bored immediately. Since I'm re-reading watership down with my wife, I managed to convince her to buy the game, let's see if we actually get to play it!

Star-crossed: I followed the Kickstarter and the Italian edition came as a surprise. I played it at lucca with a friend of mine (it was his first rpg game ever <3) and I liked it, especially how short it is.

What new games did you buy/play recently? :D

Back Homunculus Assembly Line ASAP cuz this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Who knows what might haunt you if you don't...

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:

Well, I'm #newhere, another G+ refugee checking out this platform. It looks promising; hopefully it can become a robust system and as great a community as I had at G+.

Below is an alphabet soup of hashtags with some of my more frequently visited interest areas. Historically I haven't used hashtags in much of anything I've written online, so I don't know that I'm gonna start doing that here all of a sudden, either. In any case this place looks like it emulates G+ circles (with the aspects thing), and afaic that's an adequate way to track and find my interest groups and like-minded peeps. Guess we'll see how it all works out!

By the way almost all my posts are public unless I'm asking a very specific question to a particular group of people (like asking fellow novelists something about writing craft or marketing). So what you see here is pretty much what you get.

(Btw my profile pic is way overdue to be changed but I'm starting out with it here for the sake of visual recognition for G+ friends.)

My main current interest areas: #3dprinting, #artificialintelligence, #china, #currentevents, #fantasy, #futurism, #gaming, #german, #germany, #history, #miniatures, #petmice, #rpgs, #science, #sciencefiction, #technology, #wargames, #worldbuilding, and #writing.
I just realized that my previous #introduction post wasn't marked Public. That makes it far less useful as an introduction. So I'm repeating it here publicly, so other people can maybe see it who haven't already connected with me:

I’m Nick, I’m #newhere following the G+ death announcement. Mostly I use social media to talk about #tabletop-rpgs #RPGs and #gamedesign. I spend most of my time thinking about games or making games. Mostly I make short RPGs and larps, in the #indierpgs or #storygames style, about idiosyncratic subject matters. This year, for example, I’ve been releasing a roleplaying game every month about a weird D&D monster.

You can see a lot of the things I’ve written in these places:

I also enjoy lots of other nerd stuff. Tell me about your weird nerd hobbies.
