I started working on East Marshes as an easy project to keep me working on RPG projects in a very low commitment way. In that capacity, its been a great success. On the other hand, this being the only project I've worked on all year has made me pretty tired of it. So for now, it'll be going on hiatus.

I may continue the project when I go back to work. But its not very likely, considering the very low interest levels. Now to be fair, the low interest levels isn't a bad thing. Since no one is paying attention to it, I've felt much more bold in trying new things. So if I we're to return, it would be to continue getting a little more experimental.

I'd be interested!

Part 3, Suburban Commandos is out! From the beginning I wanted to make 5-room dungeons for each entry, but it wasn't until this one that I finally looked up the concept. I found this article and I really liked the ideas here, so I tried to implement them in this dungeon. 

I was also inspired by the advice of 6 entry random tables from Electric Bastionlan. Again, for the first two entries I was mostly operating on the my memory of the advice. For this entry I finally went back and looked at the advice again and implemented it.

Overall I feel pretty good about this one, especially in regards to work flow. I managed to keep working on it at a steady pace throughout the month and was able to finish it on time without stressing.

I've added East Marshes part 2: Rust Belt Blues! This entry explores The Backwoods, Rustwood City, and The Factory. 

With this adventure I wanted to reverse the usual expecations, the town is dangerous, and the "dungeon" is friendly. It was more difficult to write around than I expected, but an interesting experiment.

Very accurate to my experiences as someone who used to work at a grocery store, although not in prepared foods.

Glad you liked it! Please let me know what kind of monster you end up making.

I'm going to submit something I wanted to make for .dungeon class jam. Before you had made this jam I was just thinking how much I regret not finishing that project, so thank you for giving me another opportunity! 

Also might do something for Electric Bastion Jam. It won't be the project I originally was going to make for it.

I really love the thief's connections. Gotta use that in a future game.

Love it

This is that good shit

Crashmoon has a very cool aesthetic. Lots of tables filled with imaginative prompts for a weird adventure.

Very cool and evocative. Gave me a melancholy vibe.

I really dig this game. Scrubs is the only medical show I've watched, and I really felt its influence.

I would really like a guide on marketing/advertising/community building. I really enjoy and feel like I have a good handle on most aspects of actually making games, but I struggle with getting the word out.

I put together a blog post to save some twitter posts I've found useful https://cantrip.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/interesting-useful-twitter-posts-for-rp...

I'll share a copy of Loveland with any participants who send me a message on Twitter or send me an email at jonathandersch@gmail.com

This is a cute game with a nice, simple, card based mechanic.

Love the setting and random tables.

I really like this game and I want to play it.  Someday I'll try the solo variant if I can't get anyone to try it.

Yeah I wouldn't mind a deadline extension. Extending it at least into the weekend would help a lot.

One of my favorite RPGs is Wolfspell. You play as people turned into wolves. The game uses an awesome mechanic where your rolls will have either "wolf" or "human" results representing the inner conflict of your character's old mind and the instincts of their new body. 

I've had this idea to try and make a pbta game based on Pokemon. Not sure what stats or moves would be, but I liked the idea of defining Pokemon through tags. Like for example Bulbasaur could be [Grass][Poison][Small], or maybe more specific like [Vines].  I like this because its easy to define existing Pokemon or make up your own.  Growth of the Pokemon could be changing and/or adding new tags. 


In theory the game would be about exploring, finding new Pokemon, and creative problem solving using Pokemon abilities, moreso than battling.
