I was going to have a longer post here, but I realized what I really wanted was to start a conversation. There's lots of guides for GMs in traditional games, what kind of topics do you think we'd need in one for running co-operative games?

Please back my patreon and support cooperative games!

Character Generation Library - Unhallowed Metropolis
I got this game ages ago, and I haven't actually managed to play it yet. It's not so surprising because I don't frequently get a chance to play much lately, and the game itself is one that requires a pretty good understanding of how the parts work in order ...

More awesome talk about Horror in games with +Michelle Lyons-McFarland!
I am very pleased to announce episode 109 of The Gauntlet Podcast is here! In this one, +Kate Bullock and I are joined by +Michelle Lyons-McFarland to discuss ways for successfully facilitating horror RPGs. It's a topic all three of us are really invested in, and we manage to cover a lot of ground in an hour. All in all, just a great conversation.

Also: if you have not filled out our Feedback Form for Gauntlet Con, please do so at the link below. If you're interested in volunteering to run a game, there is a form for that as well.

Okay, I'm posting here for the first time because yay group thoughts!

So, free RPG day is coming up on Saturday and it usually irks me because it's mostly all about quickstarts and the like. I know why they do it, but there are a lot of good Free RPGs out there.

What are some of your favourite free RPGs that don't necessarily get all the love that they deserve?

Some of mine are:
Metropole Luxury Coffin (
Doom and Cookies (
The Droog Family Songbook (

I just officially joined +handeyesociety! Got the official letter and everything. If you're in the GTA area, and you're interested in making games and getting more people into games, I highly recommend you join too. Right now our new project is Camp Make-A-Game. We're trying to bring game making to underserved neighbourhoods in Toronto and the GTA.

You can pay monthly, or yearly, it's up to you, but if you care about games this is a wonderful organization.
