Chronic pain and job loss has been a brutal blow to my household income, and I am attempting to make up for some of the loss.  I am running some freelancing to try to contribute to household income.

The question is what can I do for you?

I can run an RPG for you and your friends (RISUS, FAE, Fate, Bids)
I can run a one on one story game
I can run a one shot of West City Supers, a FAE street level superhero game of working class heroes, just trying to earn a living.
I can walk you through a guided meditation
I can help you brainstorm game design
I can playtest your game and provide feedback.
I can be a pair of ears to vent to
I am up for suggestions, if you are looking for things other than the above.

These will be Audio via hangout.
Due to my medical issues theses sessions will be capped at two hours running length.  I can be Paid Via Paypal, and it is PWYW, suggested price is $10 an hour, or $5 an hour per person if I am hosting multiple people.  Please reply on the original post or by direct message if interested.

My paypal is Strathadan @ Gmail.com (remove spaces)

The games are free, but tips are encouraged if you enjoy them.

DeScriptors is a word based quick play RPG.

The First Descriptors game is a humorous post apocalyptic setting.

The second Descriptors game is Ethanol Pop. An optimistic biodiesel punk setting.

OMG This sounds amazing I say with only a tiny personal bias!

I did a thing, I hope you guys find this interesting
May 5th is Original Edition Appreciation Day (#OERAD) and we're releasing a level 8-12 Swords & Wizardry adventure on DriveThruRPG.com in celebration!

THE DARKNESS BENEATH DALENTOWN introduces characters to an urban expansion project gone horrifically wrong! A crew of workers expanding Dalentown's sewers breach a wall into a forgotten dwarven stronghold, uncovering abandoned living quarters and a haunted library of ancient secrets. But when the party delves further below the surface world, they discover an ancient threat with designs on flooding Dalentown with a caustic terror sure to melt the hearts -- and minds and bodies! -- of anyone that loves a good pudding, mustard, jelly...or ooze!

Giant sewer monsters. Ancient dwarven constructs. Diabolical fiends. Burbling, bubbling slimes. Dwarven lords cursed to serve a conjurer-turned-demon.

Your adventurers are Dalentown's only hope!

Jilli spent time looking for a knowledgeable local bard. She chatted and plied her with drinks and and wonderful (if cheap) food.

After some chatting and light flirts.

Do you have any fun local stories of dragons ghouls ooh wait no...were beasts oh and do you have anything about toys turning into beasties? Those are fun fireside tales.

The stats quiz gave me the following

Str 7
Int 13
Wis 15
Dex 11
Con 6 T_T
Charisma 16

STR 7 CON 6, well I can be a sorcerer or the worst barbarian ever Heh

Some damage levels seem off to me. The chains on a flail are there to add force to a swing, if daggers and batons are base level 1, then I feel like Maces and Flails should be damage 2, while a spiked gauntlet can be reduced down to 1. Tridents are one handed, remember the traditional gladiator would have a trident in one hand a net or shield in the other, perhaps it deals 3 damage if used two handed? I could just house rule it, but I thought you might like to know.

This is a really cool list though, I really like the variety. I also enjoy the writing on the weapon descriptions which are very evocative.
Looks like my first post on this got deleted...or...something. Anyway, here's take two! I'm working on the equipment for #openadventure but I'm doing things a little differently.
First, I'm adding tons more "tech" for dungeoneering & tactical adventures. Topics like overland travel will have its own tech at a later date.
Second, I'm adding a lot more science-fiction equipment. That means lasercoms, portable labs, gas sensors, hacker kits, grapnel launchers, backpack scanners, oxygen tanks & more. Everything you need for planetary & stellar exploration.
Third, I'm going to add a small description/explanation for each item, and cover any fiddly rules that pertain to the item. As you can see in the image below, the "details" and "abilities" of each item are written in a smaller "fine print". This covers things like the weight, price, handedness, etc. There will still be tables for each section listing the equipment for sale (for ease of reference).
You'll also see that I'm re-adding Tech Levels. Yes, to the basic rulebook. I've decided to cover that rule from the start since the equipment in this chapter will be all over the timeline.

Thoughts?
