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.

Pen and Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / Ankur

It seems pretty obscure I'd say. Saw it on a YouTube channel with some 300 views a video, but can't recall which one. First glance it looks well made. I guess a read would warrant more information on playability.

Looks like great work. Glad they're doing well.

That's disheartening. It does sound like a neat idea. I think I'll grab a copy and give it a read. I forgave the borrowed art pretty quickly, because the concept was so amazing. Maybe he should sit down with a few developers, or get in some forums like this, and see what should be changed. What kind of rules weren't necessary?

Has anyone made a post about Ankur yet? I haven't played it, but I have seen the art. The site seems really cool. It's based on a D12 system, where 1D12 is all that's needed to play. Chris Miller decided to write it up after getting sick of regular work. Main theme is Sumeria, but it has space travel, interstellar beings, ect. Seems really cool. Thought I'd throw it out there.

Let us know if you have a play experience and what it's like.

Media and Inspiration / Autism and the Therapeutic Effect of RPGs

Great thread. Games and health industry is very interesting. This reminds me of glucoboy. A gameboy reward system for blood sugar testing. Your gaming might be able to derive ideas and inspiration from its developer's story. Kelsey Lewin has a very good video on it.

Articles / Plundering the PC: Divinity: Original Sin

I think PC games will change less because the companies have built a niche based on a certain kind of game that works for them. Like Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, ect. Their fans expect those games, so they've kept them the same. If it works, why change it? I get a little iffy about major changes to working mechanics/system. It's really easy to lose/disappoint all your fans. Also PC games have longer overhead. Baldur's Gate I would have taken years to build from the ground up by an indie team. Baldur's Gate II wouldn't have been so bad because of recycled elements. I'm not sure I would want to pop in Baldur's Gate II and see an action RPG. Sometimes little to no change is a good thing. Especially in economic and efficiency aspects.

No problem, sent a PM as well. I wouldn't mind following this if possible. Throw me a Twitter or something.

Done, and done. Don't forget to share the app when it's finished. Actually sounds kind of exiting.
