Yass definitely run HoW! Excited to hear about it if/when you do
With pleasure. Do you still have tips for matching series, which can be found on Amazon or YouTube or elsewhere? I found one without subtitles. Nice to look at, but I just do not understand anything
The Blade of Destiny, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Hero, IP Man are all possible touchstones if I recall. @Agatha probably knows more.
Play and run games from my collection.
Move a few game designs towards completion.
- go to at least one con. (I haven’t been to one in over 15 years)
- try out more one-shots
- play more gm-less and gm-full games
- do more f2f facilitating
A new goal: my partner and I want to establish our home as a hub for a more diverse local indie tabletop community. We have a really beautiful shared space and it’s important to both of us to give back to our friends and support creativity at, and around, the table
Hi! Let’s talk about this more.
Let’s talk about this more.
Actively contribute to the Gauntlet game design scene with playtest participation and feedback
Publish, even if it’s a soft launch, even if its a zine, even if its a microgame exported from Word PUBLISH something
Learn how it itch.io better!
I have all these same goals!
I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I think the answer is: do a wider variety of things.
Play game systems that are very different from each other
Play different formats (one-shots, campaigns, rotating casts, etc.)
Play with a variety of people
The last two years I’ve mostly played games within the same systems and with a steady group playing campaigns. I’ve enjoy those games and will still play with my weekly group…but I’m ready to expand my range. So far this year I’ve already played 5 new game systems and each one opens my mind to how many different things games can do.
So I haven’t been able to play much lately because of school and health, so my main goal is to play RPGs that make me happy with good people.
I’ve made a step in one of my goals: I posted a No Country for Old Kobolds event in April
- Get more involved with my semi local queer gaming organization
- Run at least 1 one shot at one of their meetups (I signed up to run Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures in April)
- Go to at least one con
- Play at least one game online
- Convince one of my in person GMs to run something other than D&D so I can actually play something other than D&D
- Run Masks for my Friday night playgroup
- Run my D&D game for my little siblings at least semi-regularly and try to instill non-murder hobo instincts in them
