ALSO, you guys, Stromgard is so close to going to print I'm freaking out about it. The manuscript is basically done, I'm just doing grammar edits the rest of this week and we may order the first proof as soon as next week.

Also, since everyone else is doing it: My creative type is Artist, and we're known for bringing ideas to life. Take the quiz to discover your type.

24b. Image moodboard-type materials and fact sheets rarely make it into the final product but i LOVE making them. I have a 100+ slide visual guide to a private rp with intense character notes, etc. They really help guide writing even if they never see the light of day.

24. Fave rpg related material to make was definitely working with an artist to realize the aesthetic of a given project. For stromgard, I sent like a 15 page gdoc full of larp costumes and historical artifacts that I spent a lot of time digging around for.

23. No official/witting mentors, though I try to be like a sponge when people I admire start talking shop. If I could nail down the time, I'd like to publish the info I've collected... someone somewhere may find it useful haha

22. Well besides trying to be a generally approachable and emphatic social media presence, I stand by my personal ethics and commitment to inclusivity. I dont have a ton of influence but I want to network with others who are creative and progressive n create strong bonds. 21c. I'd like to do this forever but we're kind of gambling with our pittance nest egg so idk lol? He quit his job last year. We're living off of our 401ks to make games and give Lost Duchman a chance at being sustainable. When we run out of $, we'll have to get adult jobs again and that'll be the end of that.

21. Money. I had basically a nervous breakdown in 2015 after about 7 years of functioning with major anxiety and depression. Quit my job, struggled day to day. Have a lot of serious talks with about our future and sustainable levels of contentment...

Once per long rest I can make a ball of pizza dough and a few extra caravans of supplies...


If you were a dnd adventurer... what would your abilities be?

Type: "once per long rest I can..." and let predictive text finish the rest.

"Once per long rest I can understand why you have a problem" 😂🤣🤣


20. I want to make a trope-y anime ttrpg that really tightly fits a strong subgenre like sports, idol, or fantasy/academy anime so that play/characters are mechanized to go through all those tropes over the course of a campaign. Not confident of its popularity tho haha.

19. Favorite themes: Self empowerment vs entrenched structures, anarchy/self preservation vs order/altruism (these things aren't necessarily opposites but their chemistry is fun to play with), recklessly pursuing good, accepting weaknesses/limits... idk i have weird tastes

The interior art has been completed for Wyrd of Stromgard!! I am absolutely raring to finish laying out the manuscript! It looks so good!! Ahhhh a thousand thanks to for being so rad!!

18. *frame. I know that its twitter and all but my kingdom for an edit feature. :<

18. Underlying messages: boy howdy, subtly is not my greatest strength. Also my material is all over the place in terms of scope/goal/story so no coherent messages will stretch over all of them. Mostly I want people to love the fantastic and the irl narratives that frames it
