Update on the "Shards of Thimbral" story game, kind of going more traditional.
Those  of you who read this blog.. I’m talking to both of you… may have noticed it has been a kind of slow around here as of late. I have to blame that on end of the winter blahs. I have a very strong desire to suck up som...

I love Ghost/Echo and wanted to see how easily I could change up the mood with as few changes as possible. Here's the result: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/926188/faith.pdf 
Any comment and suggestions welcome!

Wow! I really like this. My only complaint is that the Others section should probably contain fewer named individuals and more generic creature types (eg, Seraphim), IMO. Otherwise, it might be worth having separate lists of minor NPCs and of generic creature types. For the most part, though, it seems to me that named creatures are either Reapers or those in charge of them. [/2cents]

If you've not heard of Storium, you really owe it to yourself to check out their kickstarter. I've been enjoying this online collaborative storytelling game quite a bit.

Finally got to play Monsterhearts and Lady Blackbird this weekend. And met some awesome people in the process. Also got to try +Laura Simpson's Companion's Tale. #Maelstrom was a great weekend for story games!

Oh yeah, and I also had a blast breaking +Tim Rodriguez's Hyperreality.

Was excited to come home and realize MH and How We Came to Live Here are already in my library.
I really want to try the LARP version of MH now.

Hi everyone,
I'd like to to invite you play in semi-improvised play of choose your own adventure. Later I may make Twine project out of this but for now let's just play. I will write a post and offer you your possible actions and you'll choose one of them (if you choose more than one option than anyone can vote with pluses). If you have problems with the text please do write - it's also writing practice for me (especially in foreign language). Also if you have any comments.

The play has started and there are some choices made but there'll be more for sure.
Enjoy.

Thanks Alan. You will find a new link for an alternative version (less sexy, more readable) in the same thread given above.

Hi all. I've set up a community to workshop my games in the full glare of the G+ spotlight, and I'd like to invite folks to join me there, especially those who are also producing their own games (although I'm happy to hear from anyone interested in RPG design in general). Please join me in my design lab to kick ideas around, and generally chat games and gaming.

Apologies everybody. I deleted the previous iteration of this community when I realised that its being private sounded unwelcoming and was likely to put a lot of people off.

The community is now completely open, which reflects better my attitude to life in general. Do please join it, and we'll get this party started. Link to new page here: https://plus.google.com/communities/103082278441538170721?hl=en

We're still looking for more 10-14 year old readers to help us proofread +Shoshana Kessock's Dangers Untold. We want the game to be accessible to young adults, and we need your help!

Let me ask my 10, just about 11 yo daughter if shes interested.

Don't know if this is the right place, but it's good to start.  My wife and I are large fans of Story Games and have a treasure trove of story based indie games that we still want to play.  The tragedy is we moved from the north edge of Los Angeles County almost into Ventura County of California, and I'm moving away from my gamer friends in West LA and Irvine. 

We are looking for a new gaming group for story games and indie games.  Also, we want to meet new RPG friends and gamers in general.  We are particularly looking for gamers who maybe have families?  We have a 2 year old daughter so we are looking for gamers who understand the possible sporadicness of games, and are ok with children being around the gaming table.  Are such gamers interested in meeting, or do people know of gamers in this category and are that want to make new friends?  My wife and I want to start up a new game when we move at the end of this month.

We are looking for local people we are trying to make new friends in the area as well as gamers. However +Barry Figgins might be interested in this.

My Friend Truel was been released! Truel is a "freeform role-playing game & Party Game" of Skill, Bluff and Strategy for 3 to 6 Six Player (also for Kids)! One game takes about 40 minutes! 

TRY IT! It's FUN! You can not stop playing it! All your friends will want to play TRIELLO!

This game is released as a "pay what you want" game with all proceeds to be used to produce more games. You can, of course, download this game for free, but by donating the price of one coffee, you give us the possibility to translate our other games!

Special thanks to my Proofreader +Josh T Jordan and +Tobie Abad

I've been kind of quiet lately. I was a little burned out, a lot of it having to do with my old job that was sucking a lot of motivation out of me. So I got a new, better paying, database engineer position. But the end result...

I hope you'll take a moment to check out Legacy of the Slayer. It's a storytelling RPG focused on character-driven play using cards instead of dice or character sheets.

The new FOE album AND Jackson Tegu's sweet sweet game about said band for a paltry $10? I know, it seems to good to be true. And in a scant 2 hours, it will be.

That's all well and good to mechanically assess the cost to the player, but what does it cost the character? in other words, what do those Spirit points mean?
