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 What are some industry best practices for playtesting and tabletop game development?
Removing the word "good" actually makes this harder to answer here, not easier. We need criteria to filter the possibilities so that there can be a theoretical "best" answer. We don't host questions looking to build a potentially-unending list of things that just match a type. (That falls under "too broad".)

comment Which are races, and which are species?
Rather than letting it languish in the comments, you may wish to weave some of this relevant clarification of motives into the question itself where future answerers will see it.

As a rule of thumb, throwing around clinical psychological diagnoses of someone without being their professional therapist/diagnostician, will generally reduce the appearance of quality for a post, not increase it.

That's enough deleted comments. If someone has a dissenting opinion, kindly express it with votes or writing what you consider a better answer, instead of leaving yet another comment here. Thanks!

comment Taking Larp sword in plane cabin
@PurpleVermont Migration is only done when we're sure it's a good, on-topic question that won't be put on hold over there. Mods don't like bad questions being dumped into their site. Since this needs work before it's anywhere near answerable at Travel, it's up to the OP to do it.

@PurpleVermont Yes, but the current question would be closed and therefore the migration would be marked as rejected. They'll need to re-ask a more detailed question there.

Have you done this? How did it work out socially? Did it preserve the friendship better than letting him walk?
