<+JMHardy> Hi! I’m Jason Hardy, Shadowrun line developer with Catalyst Game Labs, and lead developer on the upcoming new edition, Shadowrun, Sixth World!
<+JonathanGreen> My name is Jonathan Green, and I am a published author and games designer.
<+JonathanGreen> 26 years ago I had my first Fighting Fantasy adventure gamebook published.
<+JonathanGreen> I now write my own series – ACE Gamebooks – which remain classic works of literature as choose your own adventure gamebooks.
<+JonathanGreen> The third one – NEVERLAND: Here Be Monsters! – launches at the UK Games Expo this weekend.
<+JonathanGreen> The fifth one is called ‘TWAS – The Krampus NIght Before Christmas, in which the reader/player has to save Father Christmas who has been abducted by Krampus, the Christmas Devil.
<+JonathanGreen> It inspired me to create a rules-lite traditional RPG, which is currently funding on Kickstarter.
<+JonathanGreen> It’s called ‘TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas. The players take on the role of toys, brought to life by Santa’s magic, who are tasked with saving the Big Man.
<+JonathanGreen> Am I okay to post a link to the KS here?
<~Dan> Please do!

<+BlackHatGamesParker> Howdy folks! My name is Parker Blau, I am the lead designer of Mud, Blood, & Glory, a wild west tabletop RPG that lets you play as the outlaws
<+BlackHatGamesParker> You can check out the free Starter Edition of the game on our website, Blackhat-games.com/downloads to get a taste for what it’s all about
<+BlackHatGamesParker> You can also find the full game on our webstore
<+BlackHatGamesParker> About the game:
<+BlackHatGamesParker> It’s designed as a good introductory game for folks who want to get into tabletop RPGs but find the existing options too complex. The game is designed to be accessible to new players and GMs to find their bearings, but has enough material for experienced players to really dig into the game
<+BlackHatGamesParker> Really, I think the game speaks for itself, so go check it out if it sounds at all interesting, and I’m here to answer any and all questions! (done)
<+RobStith> Hello, folks. My name is Rob Stith, and I’m the designer of The ORPHEUS Protocol, a horror/espionage RPG live on Kickstarter right now, at (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/948927035/the-orpheus-protocol.)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/948927035/the-orpheus-protocol.
<+RobStith> In The ORPHEUS Protocol, players take on the role of operatives of the secretive paramilitary group known as ORPHEUS, who seek to protect the everyday world from supernatural threats, while maintaining a monopoly on deployable paranormal power.
The name’s Davenport. I review games.
So the other day, my good buddy Scotty the Dwarf stops by for a visit. He shows up bare-chested and with a giant orange mohawk, which meant only one thing: There was a new edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay in town.
“Y’know, Scotty,” I says, leaning back in my chair, “I’ve always had me a soft spot for WFRP. Great dark fantasy setting. But those rules in the first two editions just never did it for me. And that third edition went way off the rails.”
“Well, yer in luck, laddie,” he says. “I happen t’know that the fourth edition of WFRP cleans up all the nonsense and gets right down to the Troll-slaying goodness.”
“Speaking of Troll Slayers,” I says, “the look suits you. I’ll bet you really lay your enemies low.”
“Ye’d best be glad I’m not a Smartass Slayer, laddie…”
