    [Patreon] Vagabond Star - an early-release science fiction RPG in the traditions of Elite and Traveller

    I'm currently experimenting with the possibilities of Patreon and am using it to release a PDF RPG on an episodic format. It's early days yet but I've made a start with the (very) basic dice and character generation systems and I'm eager for any feedback (and potential patronage, of course!)...

    Seeking a sci-fi artist for a (hopefully!) small job

    I'm going to try experimenting with Patreon as a means of publishing a tabletop RPG piece-by-piece, mostly to see if there's any mileage in the concept. Since this is very experimental and I'm unsure if it will prove a viable revenue stream, I don't want to spend too much on art right now...

    Horror Illustrator required for Kickstarter RPG Pitch [Paid]

    I'm currently considering putting together a Kickstarter pitch for a game system. The core of the system is already written and play tested in existing products; what I'm planning to do is release the central mechanics as an open-license system for others to use. However, to make a convincing...

    Would a smartphone-based app benefit your game?

    I'm a professional iPhone programmer and I'm often wondering about how many games might benefit from a smartphone-based utility of some sort or another. Character generators are usually the most useful, but that needn't be the limit of what's possible with modern technology. Of course this kind...

    Idea for a very quick competition - Thoughts?

    As a creative exercise, I'd like to run a quick competition. Entrants would supply a few very brief details about a game they think would be cool. An entry would be less than 500 words, maybe less than 100. The prize would be that I would take these brief details and make a 'Little Black Book'...

    Probability mathematics formulae

    Problem: finding the probability of rolling target T or higher, using N dice each with S sides and adding a modifier M. ...in other words the probability that NdS+M >= T. Now, I can do this easily enough procedurally. It's just a matter of iterating through the number of possible combinations...

    Considering a prototype Supers game

    I've had an idea for a superhero-style game floating around in my head for a while now, and I'm wondering if there'd be enough interest to justify developing it to a saleable level, and how far I ought to take it. The design goals are given below in brief; I'd like people to tell me if this is...

    Thinking of commissioning art for competition prize

    I'd like to run a brief RPG design competition, and offer art as a prize to the winner. Sadly I'm no great artist, so I'd like to commission someone else to do it. I'm not likely to be making any profit from this endeavour at all, not even advertising, so I don't want to spend a huge amount but...

    Any weapon specialists out there?

    Are there any artists here who specialise in weapons and equipment illustrations, or that have examples of such in their gallery? This is mostly a curiosity query, but could lead to paid commissions in the near future so I thought I'd post here. -Ash

    Anyone seen Michael Jaecks recently?

    I ask because the email I've previously used for him seems to be bouncing. -Ash

    Anyone know a good, RPG-Budget-Friendly, humorous cartoonist?

    Pretty much what the title says really. Can anyone recommend to me a cartoonist that does good, strong linework with lots of character and a good sense of humour, but not *too* Disney / Manga? -Ash

    Planning a budget - seeking price quotes from reliable artists

    I'm currently thinking of putting another RPG project together. I have a few options open to me right now so I'm not laying down any firm theme or style just yet, but suffice to say that it is going to be a weird, twisted fantasy or science-fantasy of some sort. However I'm not the richest...

    Pure Scenery Art - any call for it?

    I'm currently seriously considering buying some heavyweight landscape rendering software, for a variety of reasons. Firstly it will complement my other 3D rendering work extremely well, as realistic landscapes are notoriously tricky and time-consuming to create. Secondly I find automatic...

    [Diaspora] Pocket Cluster-Creation Tool Available for iPhone & iPad

    After a couple of months' development and a lot of fiddling, it's finally available! Pocket Clusters, a collaborative cluster creation tool for the iPhone and iPad. Sorry this took longer than I was hoping folks, but I decided to add some rather funky features. Players sat around the table can...

    Which genre of RPG is underperforming, and why?

    Pretty much as the title suggests, really. Which genre, in your opinion, has the least number of quality offerings compared to poor games? What, again in your opinion, is the major factor that's largely missing from that genre? Just a curiosity question really. I'd love to write a new game...

    Back in Business At Last!

    Phew, well, after several months of fiddling with the new computer and hashing out various payment schemes and options, I am now back in business! I've upgraded to a neat little Apple Mac and stocked it with lovely toys including my favourite 3D rendering equipment and a brand spanking new...

    [Diaspora] Help Make My Free iPhone Cluster Tool a Reality!

    Hello folks! As some of you may know, I've been working on an iPhone version of my PC-based cluster generation program for Diaspora. It's now reached a point where I am almost ready to release it, but I first need to join the Apple developer program. To this end, I'm trying to raise a bit of...

    Funding: Kickstarter alternatives

    I've been working on an RPG-related project for a while now, with the intention that once I reached a stage whereby I'm reasonably convinced I will be able to turn out a finished product, I then look at funding options. I had intended to use Kickstarter for this purpose, but I didn't realise one...

    Adobe InDesign: Cheap?

    Document creation tools crop up a lot in these design threads, so I thought I would share a little information I just discovered that, frankly, surprised me a great deal. I always used Quark in the past, but recently I moved to Apple Mac and my version of Quark only supported Windows. I've thus...
