I wrote a thing for a British game based on an older British game.
« on: September 13, 2019, 05:59:03 pm »
So there's this science-fantasy RPG, Troika!, that some folks call "hipster Planescape" based on some old British RPG called Advance Fighting Fantasy or some shit. I wrote a bunch silly to serious backgrounds for, the guy who wrote Troika!, Dan Sell,  likes it.
I dunno. I almost feel bad to just coming by to plug this, but we live in hell.
Also I did most of the art, for a given value of mostly editing public domain images.

Once knew a man who shat himself to death eating too much citrus.

Speaking from my time in the game industry, a few adjustments are needed when someone becomes a game designer:

1.  Food.  Get used to living off of unwary pigeons.
2.  Housing.  The back seat of your car makes a better bed if you drop the seat rest into the trunk.
3.  Social Life.  HAHAHAHA SHUT UP MONKEY, DEADLINE IS COMING.

This is as the youths say a side gig. Although maybe. But also Dan Sell is motivated partly by spite. Which I can respect.
