• I just finished The Lost Cause, the newest book by @pluralistic@mamot.fr an d it is great. A book of hope playing in a dystopian near future that could be really our future. Interesting characters and as always interesting ideas.

  • If you are playing #ttrpg related to #cyberpunk, you might want to listen to the episode about a tragic fire in Johannesburg to get some material. The part about “hijacked buildings” is something how for example people in the Redmond Barrens in #Shadowrun probably live.

  • Day 31 of #RPGaDay

    I forgot to post yesterday.

    Favorite RPG of all time: Shadowrun!

    I don’t care about the edition. The world is awesome and I love the dice pools (big trolls == big dice pools) and you have a reason why strangers run together. Sometimes I don’t like the crunchiness.

    I ❤️ #Shadowrun

  • Day 30 of #RPGaDay

    Obscure RPG you played: Plüsch, Power and Plunder

    You bring your character to the table (a stuffed toy); you play how it comes to life. In the session I played plastic toys enslaved teddy bears and we had to fight the BBEGs: action figures of Gandalf, Sauron and a plastic unicorn…

  • Day 29 of #RPGaDay

    Most memorable encounter: a session of Shadowrun. A plan to do something in a gang HQ. First runner sneaks into the HQ, second character critically glitches his roll, activates the alarm. Big shootout ensues, the headquarter didn’t exist anymore after that. Best laid plans…

  • Day 29 of #RPGaDay:

    Most memorable encounter:

    The one were we played DnD with higher level characters and the game master designed an encounter with skeletons - scaled to our level. So we fought like a hundred or two hundred skeletons. Took a while and was more fun than expected.

    Scariest game you played:

    That was a session of a self-designed game from a game master at a convention set in a Ravenloft-style setting.

    We were in a neon-lit crafts room but the GM was so good that it was still very scary. One of the best sessions I was ever part of.

  • Day 27 of #RPGaDay

    Game you’d like a new edition of:

    A new edition of “Mutant Chronicles” would be neat. New full-colored books, more modern mechanics but leave the character creation more or less alone. I had so much fun generating characters together with friends because of the life-path system.

    Favorite Character Sheet: I really like the character sheets of the World of Darkness (Vampire, Werewolf etc). 1 page, all information you need, styled for the game.

  • I hate glueing together tabletop minis. Warhammer 40k-minis are even worse than Star Wars-Minis (except those battle droids maybe).

    And all for the kids…

  • Day 25 of #RPGaDay

    Unplayed RPG you own: 🤣 so so many…. 🤣

    Tenra Bansho Zero, Shinobigami, Ryuutama, Blade Runner, Coyote & Crow, Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse, KULT (the new one), Sigmata – just to name a few of those I really want to play at some point.

  • Day 24 of #RPGaDay

    Most complex/simple RPG you play

    Complex: Shadowrun - 6th edition got less crunchier than previous editions but not necessarily less complex.

    Simple: I cheat here because I don’t actually play it anymore. But I played for a while “Hero Kids” with my sons but they grew out of it.

  • Desktop #Linux-distributions that block mDNS (UDP/5353) by default are something that I don’t understand.

  • Day 23 of #RPGaDay

    Coolest Looking RPG product: when I look at the whole product, I think it is something like modern game master screens with the art over the whole width and sometimes great art on the inside. Especially the ones from DnD and the SR-GM screen.

    Best secondhand purchase: That would be “The Security Handbook” for Shadowrun.

    This book really helped me out back then to flesh out my runs and how to think about securing those corporation-buildings.

    Favorite licensed RPG: Alien RPG is just awesome.

    One of the best RPGs I’ve ever played.

  • Beware: When you buy books from HumbleBundle it can happen that those are only keys for Kobo. And those books are protected by Adobe DRM.

    It just happened to me and now I need to figure out how I can get them onto my devices (please don´t try to help me; I will find a way). #fuckDRM

  • Day 20 of #RPGaDay:

    Will still play in 20 years time:

    Whatever my regular group plays. And I hope Shadowrun.

  • Insects might feel pain or joy. Very interesting article about it and it’s implications: Do Insects Feel Joy and Pain?

  • Day 19 of #RPGaDay

    Favorite Published Adventure: Hope’s Last Day for Alien RPG

    That is the adventure in the core rule book of Alien RPG. I ran it twice for different groups and both times it was awesome. It had a great atmosphere, the right length and I would run it again.

  • NixOS looks more and more interesting. But what I already dislike is how often I read how bad the documentation is and that googling is usually the way to go.

    Why can’t there be a Linux-distribution with documentation like the BSDs?

    Favorite game system: Powered by the Apocalypse

    I love how it emphasizes telling a story together and makes this relatively easy.
