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.

Hello fellow fantasy gaming enthusiasts!

Delivering disappointment after disappointment, the soyboys at Wizards of the Coast and Paizo (among many others) have decided to drown themselves in the swamp that is wokeism. The decision from Crawford and his camp to remove the Drow and Orcs from the game "because of their intrinsic evil nature and the fact that there are parallels to be made to marginalized groups in society" is so ridiculous it's truly mindblowing. This and many other decisions to politicize roleplaying games sickens me and made me decide to come up with my own world and gamesystem.
I can hear you think: "Yo David, no one is waiting for yet another game system or world." Perhaps. Doesn't mean I am not allowed to try and make this work.

At this moment this is what I have and what I have planned:

Project title: Bladestorm (working title!)
World: Absoleth
Style: 80s sword and sorcery (more sword than sorcery)
Visual: A modern take on 80s (sexy) s&s - same fleshy colors but different style (perhaps)
Keywords: war, political intrigue, roaming warbands, slavery, sex, sword and sorcery, low magic setting

Looking for:

  • Artist with a passion for 80s s&s - big breasted ladies and muscular guys!
  • Rule theorist - the dice or... what can you come up with?

Extra info: I got a Discord where we can hangout and work on this project. I can't offer a monetary compensation at the moment unfortunately, but down the road, who knows, we could turn to Kickstarter for instance and get the money we need to make this happen. We can discuss this further of course.

I hope to hear from you!

Thanks for reading this and have a splendid day!

Okay, I'll bite. Definitely not an artist, but I've worked out some mathematically good systems. Go ahead and add me: argentAegis#1547

Did you know Bladestorm is the trademarked name of a miniatures game, and I believe they have rights to the title as an RPG too.
