  • I'm probably late, but nonetheless, happy late birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day!
    Very funny and cool to see people I know voicing a desire for exactly the kind of RPs I run but never joining them.

    That sort of thing happens to me sometimes, someone running an RP of the style I always say I like and me not actually joining it. It’s usually either the case then that either there is some fatal detail that makes me unable or unwilling to join, or that I am already at the limit of roleplays I can reasonably be in and thus I cannot in good conscience join that one.
    I really should work on my heavy metal Gaelic myth RP setting one of these days.

    This RP won an award - you should come and play. TRIBUNAL

    Ooh, what award did it win? Was there a previous iteration I should probably not read because spoilers?

    Best Scenario at WARPcon in... 2017, maybe?
    There is a sequel but not an earlier iteration.
    I may do a part 3 if we ever make it through Tribunal and the sequel, Inqusition.
    It's dense, it's obtuse, and it makes zero concessions to the reader.
    It's also one of the best things I've written and can't believe my fans voted against it.
    I just remembered Ursula Le Guin is dead this timeline sucks.

    I only read The Gentlemen Bastards this year and the next book is out next April, so it was on my mind and you can see why I rec'd it.

    I'm wracking my brain for more but I've been on a big horror and sci-fi kick the last eighteen months, so I might not have actuaklly read many of the fantasy books I might know (but I can expense books to my employers during the lockdown so that's likely to change soon).

    Oh, you know what, I inflict this on literally everyone but it's my favourite scifi novel so you might like it and I'd love to hear your thoughts: Blindsight by Peter Watts
    CW for existential horror.

    Ooh, in which case.
    Hammers On Bone by Cassandra Khaw
    Beneath The Rising by Premee Mohamed

    If I were writing for a CRPG I would drive everyone insane by writing in-universe books and relentlessly bugging the level designers about exactly where to put them.

    It is mildly amusing that if people see my name on an RP in real life they'll buy tickets without reading another word, but even the most overwritten interest check struggles to get traction.
    Hey, you were recommended to help me with a question about dice rp...I was wondering exactly how it works

    Do you think we could start one and I could learn along the way?
    Grey

    I generally prefer to have 3 or more players, for many reasons, but at least two of my RPs have yet to properly start so there's time for you to get in on the ground floor.
    Or if you have 2 or more friends who are interested, I have a nice three-player horror RP that's won an award or two I could run here.

    If you ever write RPGs professionally don't let any bastard pay you less

    Thank you for that advice.

    Womder if they pay screenwriters per word too. I doubt it.

    I can ask some screenwriters I know if you like, but I believe that works more like fiction - you get paid on marketability and negotiation, with seniority counting for too much. Incidentally expect to get shafted on fiction: we all do but you actually cannot beat traditional publishing yet.
