Hey All, I’ve recently started a new project. I’m tweeting out a Shadowrun hook daily to help inspire people’s campaigns. Check it out on Twitter @HumantheFixer

I don't know why but I've always been fond of economic pressures in my RPGs. I've run small businesses in D&D, corporate empires in Vampire, and maintained detailed cargo manifests in Firefly. When you guys started talking about Red Markets on the podcast a while back I knew it was going to be a game for me.

Play Beat the Banker with me!

Hey All, was hoping to get some help/advice from the community on a campaign idea. Looking for PbtA games that have a good selection of mundane character books (so no magical powers or adventurer style heroics, more investigators and normal folk). This would be like a Call of Cthulu game, but it would spread out over a century or more with players making new characters on the regular so I'd want to have a wide variety.

The idea for the game is this. Starting sometime in the mid to late 1800 a group of people hear about a town being terrorized. Some sort of monster is killing people (the details of the monster are unimportant). This monster is very powerful, and it's weaknesses will be very difficult to determine, so it's likely that that first group will die in the attempt or flee. The game would then pick up 25 years later with new PCs (and possibly 1 or 2 from the previous group if they escaped). They would investigate how to defeat it, and ultimately either succeed, die or run away again. If they die pick up 25 years later....you get the picture. Any suggestions, thoughts or possible pitfalls in a campaign like this would be much appreciated as well.

Any chance any of my friends on here know of good free or cheap software to make animations on your computer?  Basically looking to make 'stop motion' animations out of some clipped art on my laptop.

So I had an odd thought today and I was hoping to get some suggestions from the community here. My wife and I both love to cook, and we often host friends for dinners and the like. I was thinking about doing, a few times a year, one shot games that I would call Dungeons and Dinners. Basically run adventures which would, in their course, include some sort of significant meal and run the game while the players were eating the same meal. The adventure wouldn't have to be food centric but it would have to, at some point, include a plot important time around a table with food.

What I'm looking for is adventure ideas, inspirations, or printed adventures that would be good for this sort of engagement. These would have to be games that could beginning middle and end with about 5 hours of play (figuring 6 hours sessions, but some distraction due to the food). Anybody have any ideas?

Hey folks.  The company I work for has just launched it's new game.  Beat the Banker is our version of the Fight the Landlord game in China.  It's a very fun strategy card game.  If you have an Android phone please check it out and let me know what you think, especially we'd like some critiques of the Tutorial and whether you feel you learned the game after playing it.

Hey Guys, sorry if this has been asked and answered, my seachfu is weak. I'm thinking about running an Eberron campaign entirely or nearly entirely within the city of Sharn. Does anyone have any suggestions for existing adventures which are predominantly city based that could be adapted? It'll be a 5e game, but really anything from a fantasy city setting will do, most looking for structure and ideas than rules.
