What Alex is doing is a fantastic idea. If you have a Blog please consider joining in.
Blogosphere unite!

It’s been some days since my last reminder. 😅 I know that the constant repetition is tiresome but there seems to be no other way to reach lots of people. Here’s the gist of it: I cannot ask each and every one of you fine bloggers whether I may add you to one of the RPG Blog Planets. If you are reading this and have an OSR RPG blog, a DIY RPG blog, a Story Game blog, an Indie RPG blog, please contact me and tell me it’s ok to add your blog to one of the RPG Planets. And I will do it!

Please join us!

I think it's time for some more eyes on this thing I am writing. It's a setting neutral d6 dice pool system that takes ideas from several others to create something new. The mechanics fit on I believe 5 Pages but there is some additional info in there that adds another 8. While it says Playtest Edition it's not quite there yet as I haven't completed the setting and pregens for that. I would love some feedback on the mechanics as presented first. I have run some mock conflicts and actions, and it seems to work OK. I just want to make sure I have not overlooked something critical. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to look and leave a comment either here or directly in the doc..

Posted to preserve it when g+ closes doors.

I had a look at my tiny sales numbers from last year to plan for this year.

Might be of interest.
While I'm a member of MeWe, I'm not a huge fan. I'm much less of a fan of MeWe than I am of G+ and some probably remember that I had to be dragged kicking and screaming to G+.

Therefore, I've decided to open an (enhanced) Buddypress-based community as an (yet another) alternative to MeWe and other such places. RetroRoleplaying games will be using this as our main community site for supporting Microlite74, Microlite75, Microlite78, BX Advanced, etc. In fact I already have groups set up for some of these.

There are general forums and any member can start a group for their favorite game or setting, their campaign, etc. Groups can be public or private (or hidden, but that's not generally very useful). Groups can have a forum, a document area where members can work on documents, a image gallery, and a project management area. The Group Admin (i.e. the group creator) can turn these features on and off.

The general forum area (including group forums) are enhanced over standard Buddypress. They track unread messages, allow attachments and bbcodes, etc. The OSR.SPACE rules are short and simple and can be summed up as: "no real world politics or religion, please" and "don't be a jackass".

Shameless plugs for OSR products, kickstarters etc. are allowed. In fact, publisher members can sign up to be able to post plugs directly to the OSR Announcements column on the front page of the site as well as post plugs in the forum.

If the site proves popular additional features (e.g. free classified ads for members? an integrated Discord server?)

OSR.SPACE is a non-profit, hobbyist site. Membership is free. There will be no third party ads. There will be no google analytics tracking. The site should not cost too much to run, so should manage on Onebookshelf affiliate links and donations.

As the linked post explains, the site is not 100% ready, but it is ready enough to accept registrations and let founding members start using OSR.SPACE to test things out and get things started before the official grand opening.

One of the most intensive games I have ever run was so thanks to a BBC sound effect CD with a werewolf transformation effect. The players just heard it but could not see it and where panicked and ran. Was much more frightening then me describing the sound. Not sure if that one is in there but give it a look, there is some cool stuff to find.
16,000 sound effects from the BBC.

If you like using sound effects in your games (I highly recommend it.) this is a literal treasure trove.

Share it around!

This is it. The last new years eve on G+. I wonder where we'll all be this time next year. Will the RPG community find a new home? Will we all end up splintered unto different services? Whatever happens the years on G+ have been the best years RPG hobby wise for me. I will terribly miss it. Onwards to the future.

I just released my first to pay title on DTRPG. Get Funky.

THE LOWDOWN

It’s the hot and steamy, larger than life 70s in a big city somewhere in crime riddled America. You are not quite heroes and not quite bad guys, connected by blood or neighborhood. You have a calling or a job to do, something to make right against all odds and at all costs. The Man is out to get you and your enemies are numerous, ruthless and got Kung Fu. All you got is your wits, skill and the friends by your side. Failure is not an option. It is time to get funky or get dead!

Sounds groovy? Go grab it there for 2.99 USD and let me know what you think. I sent out a coupon to past customers as well, so keep an eye on you inbox!
