Now that the sun has cleared the Atlantic, let me once again say: I’m excited to announce that Flotsam: Adrift Amongst the Stars is now live on Kickstarter! Thankyou for all the support and encouragement you’ve given to the project so far.

Flotsam is a roleplaying game about outcasts, renegades and misfits living in belly of a space station, in the shadow of a more prosperous society. You play through their everyday lives, interpersonal relationships and small-scale drama in the Below, a dangerous world where poverty, social strife and gang conflict sit side-by-side with alien technology and supernatural weirdness.

Imagine the Belters of the Expanse watching as Earth and Mars shape their lives, the civilians in Battlestar Galactica living with the decisions made by the military and the folk of Downbelow in Babylon 5, abandoned to destitution and squalor by those who built the station. This game is about characters like that.

The game is GMless and diceless, with rules that point your characters at each other and bring their relationships into sharp focus. They help you create a rich setting, flawed characters, and charged relationships which develop over time. You'll watch your characters evolve and change before your eyes. It's really cool.

_"Josh has put together something really interesting here - there's glimpses of a larger setting through the world, but it only comes out through the lenses of the characters. Very clever stuff." _
- Grant Howitt, co-designer of The Spire RPG

You can get Flotsam for as little as £9 / $12 for the PDF.

Hi everyone!

I've finished working on my entry for the GenCant contest (link: http://www.gencant.com/contest-2018/ ).

I'm looking for some blind playtest. The contest closes on July 12th, so I only have a couple of days for it.

I'd also happily take any suggestion or advice on the rules, as rule-writing it's one of my weakest skills.

In case, here's the link to the blind playtest folder https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zWKHniOXbExNJIvMM2h3omjOUHr_TkIU?usp=sharing

It contains:
- rules (2 pages, PDF and GDoc format)
- PnP cards sheet (2 pages, b&w)
- PnP cards sheet COLOR (2 pages, color)

Thanks everyone!

I think I finally found #OMT style. These cards look amazing, and the design should withstand the complexity of the game while staying language-independent. That was hard, but worth!

If only I was good at what I like to do...

Some times you spend so much time on an activity, you feel like no matter the result you'd never go even. :(

Working on a new design for hero's cards in #OMT and possibly a language indipendent version of it. So far I think I made something decent, but I'll need to simplify the game a lot.
