Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How much can saddle bags hold?
@Sumyrda Ah, yeah, I wasn't suggesting that you could have quadruple storage because "and use both sides!", I was observing that saddlebags being twice the capacity of a standard backpack makes sense because horses have twice the pack-compatible sides that a humanoid does. :) We agree, I was just being unobvious and too short before!

What about the players being mic-shy? That seems to be the core engagement roadblock.

Do you have a setting bible written yet? If not, is that something within your resources to create?

@Ruut Par for the course in AD&D. So do halflings.
