Hi there! Caught what a think are a few tiny errors in the 1.1 user guide:
- On page 43, the first example for cv13 is mislabeled cv10.
- On page 47, i'm not sure the example for the code D6_TOUT is displaying as intended.
Started up a collaborative thread of potential #moonjam games! Feel free to contribute, or look through and see if anything sparks an idea!
Absolutely beautiful. If you're at all interested in poetry games, oracle decks, or games as folklore (or folklore as games), definitely check this out if you can. It might become one of your favorites. It's certainly one of mine.
This game is really thoughtful in how it divides focus, authority and responsibility at the table, and it has maybe my favorite main dice roll mechanic of any ttrpg. After reading through it once, I was so excited about some of the ideas it presented I was pacing back and forth. It immediately shot to the top of my "to play" list.
Tender and evocative game design. So many of these games are windows directly into jay's heart. play this instead of killing yourself is one of the most beautiful and vulnerable games I've ever seen.
My main pbp projects in various stages of development right now are:
Time Capsule: A 6 player journaling game about history, robots, the apocalypse, and long distance community.
Wanderer's Journal (with Kit Haehnel): A twitter bot game about cave exploration inspired by Hollow Knight and Takuma Okada's Alone Among The Stars
The Last Days of Solomon (with Jay Dragon): A tragic fantasy pbp game for 8-12 about the last city in the world and the people who rule it.
Untitled Mythbuilding Game (with Kaiya Lewis-Marlow): Collaboratively tell the history of a civilization by recounting their mythology
Gone But Not Forgotten: Standoffs between memory scavengers on the ocean at the the edge of the afterlife.
Hey! I've been really excited about designing and consuming pbp games for the past few years. I'm thrilled to see this category here, since the few games designed for pbp tend to get buried amid tabletop stuff. I'd really love to see what's out there that I've missed. I strongly believe that this is a really rich format, and it'll only get richer with conversation! Share your pbp and journaling games here and let's get some conversation happening!
I'm also gearing up to launching a pbp/journaling games discord community from my twitter later this week, of anyone's interested.
Hi there! I'm Abe, I use they/them or he/him, and Play-by-Post games are my thing! I fell in love with the format couple years ago, and I'm working on a a good five or six myself. You can find me on twitter @abemendes, and I'll also be launching a discord focused on PBP and journaling games some time in the next week! Glad to be here.
