Another of those pesky "language of RPG design" posts, about the potential for characterization tucked inside each RPG challenge.

Tonight's post is about GMing, or more specifically, adventure-prep and design.

Today I blogged about warmth in RPG creation. It's a favorite topic of mine.

Rolltop Indigo: The First Twenty-One

The new blog turns three weeks old tomorrow, which is basically a year if we round up to the nearest whole year. I still think sending an auto-post to G+ for every blog entry is spammy, so I'll try this as an alternative, a single post hitting the highlights of the blog's first twenty-one:

RPG Writing: Fresh on my mind is the start of a new open-format version of my RPG writing workshops. It's both come-one-come-all and drop-in-drop-out. If you have any interest in what makes RPG writing tick, I think this exercise will offer a little perspective even to crusty old vets. If you're curious, start with the Orientation post at https://rolltop-indigo.blogspot.com/2018/05/workshop-orientation.html Deadline for the first entry is just a couple days off, scoot in if you're interested.

RPG Memories: I'm putting several tales of two-fisted dice-rolling down, including salvaging some you've seen before and adding some all new ones, including this sad story of my first attempt at running a game: https://rolltop-indigo.blogspot.com/2018/05/clobberin-time.html

Pencil Puzzles: Refocusing on The Blue Room has rekindled my pencil-puzzle bug. I'm particularly pleased with this Classic Paranoia themed word-fill: https://rolltop-indigo.blogspot.com/2018/05/computer-games.html

The RPG Lexicon: Finally, for those who share my fascination with the language of RPG design (and my particular dialect of it), I've done the first of many posts on that, starting with one of the basic terms that others descend from, the Invisible Rulebooks: https://rolltop-indigo.blogspot.com/2018/05/the-invisible-rulebooks.html

For the record, I think bothering you every twenty-one posts would be spammy, too, so I won't be doing that either, but I'll post on no particular schedule, when there's enough stuff to highlight or some specific thing I'm extra-jazzed about. If you find my rattling interesting, please subscribe to the blog, and if you find it only occasionally interesting, I'll see you again, some magic someday, with another update here. Hope this finds everybody well, and gaming.
