I'm playing this right now. In my game, I design RPGs that matter instead of silly things about robot rangers.
 
I wrote a game for +David Schirduan's 200 word RPG contest.

A better person

An Immersive, pervasive role-playing game for one player
by Ben Lehman

Introduction:
What if you were a better person than who you were? What if you were that person who, deep down, you've always wanted to be.

Rules for Play:
At any moment of your life, you can at your option be playing the game. When you play the game, before you do something, think of what a better person would have done, whatever that means to you. It could be someone more patient, more aggressive, more tough, more kind, more uncaring, more decisive, more thoughtful. Think about what that person would have done, and how much better you would be if you did that thing, instead.

Then do the thing you were going to do, because, really, this is just a game.

Endgame:
Stop playing.

Final iteration of my #200WordRPG  Robot Ranger
It's very much game design on a whim, written instead of catching up with work and analog-laid out later in a coffee shop. Hipster filters to better illustrate the Apocalypse World meets gonzo D&D theme ;)

#SundayPMSwords in Switzerland.

Glad I got to try overplaying four Rogues. We told a complete story in two hours and everybody got to contribute in the lost legion's revenge over the usurper.

Edit to tag distinguished Rogue players +Antoine Boegli+Oliver Vulliamy+Christoph B.​ and +Sylvie Guillaume​.

Hello, Switzerland! Geneva may be super expensive, but at least they have free wifi in all the parks.

White Books playtest report

The game at Orc'Idée on Saturday was my first face to face session in a while, especially with 5 players. It went really well and I don't think there's much that can be improved gameplay wise - we went through the whole quest in les than three hours (even if we had to resolve the Enemy phase with only a couple of moves).

Now all I need to do is work on the teaching and user interface aspects of the game. More soon!

The Model in Sligo has Jack B. Yeats and Louis le Broquay in the same room. Fantasy Ireland on the walls.

En effet, c'est assez proche. Picasso a dû être une influence. Et puis y a des taureaux :)

The current Ludikbazar sale has a lot of interesting prices. Like, for instance, some of our old d20 era Archipels books. The huge Carnets de Voyages worldbook for €4? I'm obviously partial to something that has been a huge part of my life, but if you read French I can guarantee you'll find something of use.

(And no, I'm not getting any money from this - I just don't want these books to end in a slush pile.)
