Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR and expanded my horizons from there. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Any good resources for would-be authors of a line of gaming products?
@GMNoob Since I'm flagging these comments for cleanup, your suggestion of talking to Unstore authors is going to (or already has) disappeared. If you want it preserved, then perhaps it does merit a short answer? :)

draw out the system-agnosticism more clearly by highlighting the all systems / our system split; light copyedit elsewhere

comment Do critical failures always act as event triggers?
@MooingDuck I think the intent is to ask in a system-agnostic way (see: "like this in every system or game?"), but used the number for "fumble" in the specific system they're playing now as a shorthand. I'll take a stab at editing it to make that stand out less as an oddity.
