Hattie Strathmore, Journalist

Not a lot of writing time today, but I got 825 words in on the next Personality for #fasa1879 - an older snark woman, political and economic Journalist for the Sydney Herald.

#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

Venleitche Progress Report 2019-10-21

The weekly compile of #Venleitche, my #Patreon #ttrpg, has been released to the patrons. The dev tracking spreadsheet is public at https://bit.ly/31yyzRJ in the interests of transparency.

One dollar gets you access to the dev compile. Higher tiers get to playtest and get printed copies of the final work. #amwriting #writing

Patreon Report Released

Report released: the word-count by chapter tracking spreadsheet for my #patreon system, Dynamic Balances, and its first game, Venleitche, has been posted at https://bit.ly/2IOz4AH . In the interests of transparency, I've made this spreadsheet public. It now includes a changelog, a step forward in treating my #patreon as a code project. I'm already delivering a weekly pre-release compile to my patrons. Ignore the Tiers, I made a rookie mistake with them. All patrons get the weekly compile. Higher-paying patrons will have dibs on playtesting. Anyone at a higher tier, or at a lower tier for a long time, will get a printed copy of the final product. #ttrpg #rpg #roleplaying
Also, check out that phrase, "approximate self". One of the most fun things about the small games #ttrpg scene on itchio is the invention and exploration of new genres. Solo play RPGs are one. Games with ritual elements are another. "Approximate self" is the phrase...

Here's a series of articles (six in total) about how rules shape player behavior and gaming experience, why D&D isn't a good game for stories and why so many groups show the same problematic behavioral patterns

Have you ever bought a #TTRPG on itch.io with a status other than "Released"? What game?

The statuses are so buried under a drop-down on a product page I'm betting no one even knows.

@nell_do_well , did you ever use a status other than "Released" for Home Again?

Tonight I dreamed that I and another player were playing a #ttrpg called #Pikachu, where the players all play Pikachus. @What Rough Beast was the GM. The game had individual scenes (much like #trollbabe), and in the first scene, played by the other player, he wanted to enter some guarded place, was stopped by two guards and...made them explode into tiny, bloody bits.

I don't know what I should think, but I like games that have a different approach to known tropes and settings, and that game seemed cool xD

Venleitche: July Update

It's the 1st of the month, so patrons just got the latest alpha version of Dynamic Balances: Venleitche, the sliding-stats #ttrpg I'm independently developing on my #Patreon. There's a lot of older public material if you want to see what the game is about. Click through to https://www.patreon.com/wanderingbeekeeper for a game driven by player agency in a world with four physical genders, Neopagan religion, and permaculture principles that have teeth both in-game and in the mechanics. #fantasy #rpg
Super thought provoking. I think she's right about the importance of being able to impose a real social matrix on your interactions. It was something I could do on Google+ because of its functionality, and can't on Twitter and other platforms now, and I'm really feeling it.

Wandering Beekeeper: The Reality of the Divine

Patrons of The Wandering Beekeeper just got a new post on coming-of-age rituals, inheritance, and blood pacts in the Venleitche game world. The public thus gets an older post from 28 May talking about how a culture works when the reality of its Divinity is undeniable. Want to see the new material as it happens? Want to see the game in its entirety, which is patrons-only until it's playtested and released? Want to support a mechanic driven by player agency? Follow the link!

Venleitche Patreon: New patron and public posts!

My patrons just got the section on Cyclical Observances in the Religion chapter. Everybody else now gets the early draft of the History section, talking about the fall of the Northern continent, and why the Southern continent people live the way they do, originally posted on May 22nd. Want more? Want to see the compiled system as it stands each month? Those posts, with attached PDFs of the development version of the game, will never be made public. Want to help get this game up to playtest level, and take it to Discord? Click through.
