The Utopiales is one the biggest SF Festival in France. And there is a Gaming Area in it. Some 40 games simultaneously at some time. And here I was, creating a fine tale with four rogues ... The article is in French, and I took the "Fictive Fun" style for exposing the Motifs.

Also, I ran two games of "The RadX Orphans", a Diesel-punk / kids with powers hack of SWM (more on that on my blog in french, but I can talk about it in english), and one more game of Ghosts Without Master, a lighter "hack" with mainly two other Tones : Calm & Sinister. This one will soon be presented ^^. Think Dark Souls, Ravenloft, Castlevania, Darkest Dungeons, Seven to Eternity ...

French people, in the west, start to know how good SWM is ^^.

It's not really a month of metal without ravens, is it? This piece was originally drawn for +Epidiah Ravachol 's game Wolfspell, inside Worlds Without Master.

While you contemplate this runestone and the footprints of the doomed, I recommend listening to Tyr's album Land in its entirety.

I won't be joining MeWe.

Now please jump in my comments to tell me all your Real Good & Very Logical™ arguments for why I'd be wrong not to embrace a new platform that embraces the far right, so I can go ahead and block you for these waning days of G+.

We have so many amazing, wonderful people to celebrate as Gauntlet Con rushes ever closer, so today we're very delighted to say +Misha B, +Vivien Feasson, and +Epidiah Ravachol will be joining us as guests at this year's Gauntlet Con!!

Misha is a longtime gamer and GM working on raising the next generation of geeklings. She’s written for multiple games including Chill: SAVE, Lovecraftesque, and Dead Scare, and was an editor of the award winning #Feminism collection of nanogames. She blogs gaming inspired fiction at BlackGirlGameWorks.com, is one of the founders of New Agenda Publishing, and is a curator for More Seats at the Table. Her latest project is Orun.

Vivien Feasson is a French game designer and a translator (Call of Cthulhu, Paranoïa, Spirit of the Century, etc.) who likes to theorize on games sometimes. He is behind the Edo-era chambara Les Errants d’Ukiyo but also the indie Lost in the Rain, a GM-shifting storygame where you play lost children that try to survive in the ghost of a city. Inspired by other local designers, he's discovered that you could conceive several games based on the same universe, so he launched a crowdfunding operation for another try at his “rainyverse” with Libreté, a Powered-by-the-Apocalypse game which was successfully published in 2017. Right now, he is trying to prepare the English translation of Libreté, publish a supplement with mechas, get his PhD, earn a living, raise his daughter, continue to play rpgs, and create an OSR version of Lost in the Rain.

During Gauntlet Con, Vivien will be running Libreté.

~~

Epidiah Ravachol is an author and game designer known for Dread, the horror roleplaying game that uses Jenga, and his fiction published in the sword and sorcery magazine Worlds Without Master. He resides in the Northeast of the United States of America with his wife and fellow game designer Emily Care Boss and their constellation of space wizards.

During Gauntlet Con, Epidiah will be running Wolfspell and Swords Without Master.

Rogues Without G+

The auguries have been read, and this world is destine for an apocalypse. Where then should rogues such as yourselves find the adventure you crave?

Discord Without Master is a great place to find a game to play in: https://discord.gg/7RWbHM5 It's also got its own alchemical laboratory.

I'm on Facebook, but only rarely, and I'm not super comfortable with its interface. I'm also on Twitter (@Epidiah): https://twitter.com/Epidiah There's no centralize community over there, but that's nothing a few hashtags can't solve. #SwordsWithtoutMaster #SundayAMSwords and #Eidolon are a good place to start.

There's also a bit of a indie gaming community over on dice.camp. I'm over there as well.

If anyone has other suggests of where to find like-minded rogues, please leave them in the comments below.
