This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

But I do believe that you can actually be good at RPGs. Or certain RPGs, anyhow.


Okay, this totally deserves a thread to itself.  I'll start it.

Hey Levi,
No idea if I'll like the game or not yet, but congrats on finishing it either way.

Now you can start making a Grim Fandango rpg...

Not quite yet.

I have two esisting projects standing in the wings, first - a post-apocalypse survival game, and an 1830s game about magic and superstition.

The post-apocalypse game (The Pulse) comes first.

How do I preview it?
(as in, Levi, is it possible for me to preview your game?)

What kind of game is it? Like, made for one shots or something?
I know I could totally use a game for one-shots...
God in the Machine.

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

The flowchart thing went *poof*.
I'd never have described the mission control sheet as incoherent, though. If anything, as written it might have locked every scenario into a fairly tight structure, although I can see how that wouldn't have suited everyone's tastes.

(Personally, at least during the first few games the greatest difficulty for me would have probably been keeping the effects of the Virtues on each other straight: remembering which one blocks what, and such.)
