200 word RPG entry: Goblins in a Trenchcoat

Here's one of my entries, I wanted to make a game built specifically for playing through the medium of Twitter polls and this delightful nonsense is where we ended up 😝

My first 200 word RPG: Footprints

I loved writing this entry because writing done if these rules felt very clandestine. Instructing Pele to do things like write on your game or give it away seems very taboo to me which was super fun to play with. I really hope a lot of secret gardens and witching hours and platform 9 3/4s start floating around from this game.

A new update is out! The Republic now includes rules for Gear and it's use including a short list of sample gear! Take a look, playtest if you can, let me know how you feel about it. Does it add a little more mechanical weight to certain fictional elements or is it annoying extra crunch?

I've also added a page at the end of the document with questions I'm interested in hearing the answers to from playtesters but all feedback is always valuable and welcome.

Elemental Tags! Help me come up with some!

The list of elemental Tags in the current version of the rules for The Republic are largely gleaned from the Wikipedia descriptions of the Four Temperaments associated with Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.

I've been doing research on how the elements are related to chakras and tarot decks hoping to find more texts off of which to base descriptors but I'm mostly finding things related to personalities and inner lives and I'd love to get some more interesting tags in there.

What element is the nature of the undead? Is the military fire or air or Earth? What are some extra fun tags for self/universe/aether/akasha what else uses these five elements that we can look to for inspiration?

I'd love to hear your ideas, thoughts, and inspiration!

Five or So Questions with Ashton McAllan on The Republic
I recently came across a Twitter post about The Republic , a game by Ashton McAllan, Vincent Baker, and Mark Redacted. When I read a little about it, I knew I had to talk to the creators, and Ashton was cool enough to give me some of her time! The Republic ...

If anyone wants me to run The Republic for their Group/Stream/Podcast/whatever I have a spare block of time coming up at 8pm gmt this Saturday. Let me know if that sounds good.

For those who haven't already heard, The Republic, descended from the #Threeforged entry Platonic Mastery is now available as Early Access. The weird dice are still weird but BETTER, the Social Justice is less problematic, and the game is more fleshed out as a whole.

I'm really proud of how far this game has come and I'm hoping early access can help out become it's best possible self.
