Thank you so much!
And, uhh.... *Lifts the lid from the simmering pot, and takes a little taste. Grabs some setting seasoning. Checks the braise on the backstory.* A little while yet. Can I grab you a snack?
(*Peeks at the mushrooms. Makes a creepy-crawly grimace that will only make sense to the audience after reading the second book. Puts the mushrooms back in their... "fermentation" hole.*)
Absolutely! Especially if you play up that they're ancient. And.... well-connected? I'll leave the deets to your creative mind. So, yeah, bring on the Old Ones!
Hey Olive82! I think the confusion came from that there isn't a discord server specifically for this jam, but rather there's an Ironsworn Discord server and a thread there that is specifically for this jam.
If I could go back in time, I'd take ASL in high school instead of Latin, then go to RIT and major in creative writing. I did my best to cater my college education towards creative writing without taking English or subjecting myself to the "Stay silent while we mock you" formula of creative writing classes. I just love that a tech school is the leading school for creative writing in the US. Just... *chef kiss*
This is really inciteful, and a fun read. "You shouldnʼt

As for templates and tools, you should go ask around the Ironsworn Discord server :) I'm not familiar with them all myself, so they'll be more helpful. https://discord.com/invite/6QMvmJb
Thank you so much! This means a lot to me, especially knowing it comes from another great writer!
And yes, it was unintentional! I guessed people interested in my book would get curious about Ironsworn, but I didn't expect people curious about Ironsworn would start with my book!
Ah this day has come. Sooner than I expected... The litany of challenges that come with conversion to .epub is a beast I knew I one day must face. For you, fozbaca... I shall brave this challenge.
AHEM I mean--Sure! Bear with me as I learn how to make it look good. I'll send out a big announcement when it's made. I know for sure I can ping everyone following me and everyone who has tipped. I'm pretty sure I can ping everyone who has downloaded, too though. But to make sure, you might wanna follow ^_^
Thank you Xeno and rsek for an absolutely amazing time chatting about creating Discord bots and your experience with the Ironsworn tool-making community.
Other topics we covered were how Ironsworn lends to wonderful, creative world-building, how the Oracle (within the rulebook and the bot on Discord) interact with people's play experience and what it was like using it to build the novel.
