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.

Greetings, question on where to brainstorm for a heartbreaker
« on: February 24, 2020, 04:25:36 pm »
Hello, everyone!

Like many (most?) players, I've long wanted to make my own RPG, something more than a half-arsed collection of house rules. I've accumulated notes on what I'd like, and even how to try to prevent it from being too complex in play. I may be at the point that I need someone to tell me where I'm being stupid, failing to communicate clearly, etc.

Would starting a thread to post my thoughts and ask for feedback on their viability be considered practical design, or just theory? If the latter, where would be the appropriate forum for that?
