[7:33 PM]Liana MacKenzie: Hello everyone! My name is Liana MacKenzie, I am the co-creator of Valor: the Heroic Roleplay System and owner/lead designer/literally everything else of Valorous Games! Valor is a tabletop RPG that draws heavy inspiration from shounen battle anime, our goal was to split the difference between the crunchier grid-based tactical combat of more traditional RPGs like D&D or Pathfinder and mix in a lot of fun active roleplay elements, as well as allow ultimate player freedom to create their characters. The resulting system is one where you can make any kind of character you want, shout excitedly about it at the table, and get in-game rewards for doing so. (done)

“Stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen!” the grunt says. “The ultimate badass is here with a review copy of the Alien RPG! That’s ‘RPG’ as in ‘roleplaying game,’ not ‘rocket-propelled grenade,’ although both of those things are $%&#in’ awesome!”
“Alien, huh?” I says. “Good series of movies, but how many times are players gonna wanna go on another bug hunt?”
“That’s the beauty of it, man!” he says. “The guy behind this baby knows all the secrets about the movie settings and puts together one badass $%&#in universe! You can go up against countries, corporations, pirates, low-lifes, androids, low-life pirate androids, and different sorts of aliens. But you want Xenomorphs? This one’s got the scoop on’em like no other!”
“Huh,” I says. “Now that you mention it, there is a thing or two that I’ve always wondered about those movies. Sounds like this might be just the book to tell me about’em.”
“$%&#in’ A, man!”
“Alrighty then, I’m on board.” I take the book from’im. “Is there anythin’ else?”
[1:05 PM]Awroe1970: OK, so I’m Allan Wroe. I’ve been a role player for well over 35+ years and I always preferred to write my own stuff. Started out, as many did, with red box DnD and found Savage Worlds about 10 years ago. The Covid lockdown pretty much killed the one-man-band recruitment business I had and I decided to go full tilt at getting my own Savage Worlds setting out and so, cutting a long story short, The Secret Files of Section D came along. It’s a pulp espionage setting where agents of Section D (a real arm of the British Secret Intelligence Service until they were amalgamated into the SOE) take on all kinds of adventures: In the Pulp campaign mode that means supervillains and their minions, cults and secret societies with world changing schemes, and monsters from every pulp trope. For the espionage campaign, it’s tuxedos and tiaras all the way for the real spies who inspired Ian Fleming to write Casino Royal. In the military campaign, players take on roles as agents tasked with gathering intelligence and preparing for a clandestine war in Europe. The real activities of the real Section D. The 240 page PDF comes with an historical overview of key world powers in the pre World War II period, a briefing of the intelligence organisations of those nations, and toolkits for creating missions, spy gadgets, villains, and their lairs. Also included are new Edges and Hindrances to bring pulp flavour, over 50 illustrated weapons of the pre-war and WWII era, a host of amazing spy gadgets and the toolkit for making your own, and new setting rules for Cliffhangers, codes and code breaking, and expanded explosives / demolitions rules. Check it out on DTRPG where the full version is available for purchase, or there’s a free quick start complete with a full adventure. (edited)

[7:40 PM]Rogvu: Hello all, my name is Leo. I live out in Oregon and am an avid tabletop role-player, and hobbyist writer. I’ve been working on an old west themed D20 game for the past couple years, and believe it is finely time to share it with the world. My partner was going to be here tonight as well, but he is sick. He helped with ideas, editing and testing of the game. Western Tails is a roleplaying game set in a furry version of the wild west, mostly within Oregon around the timeframe (1855-1895). This game is not necessarily intended to be an accurate history lesson, it is designed primarily as an old western game utilizing the d20 system. historical accuracy is not even the secondary goal, which is really to create a game that gives you the feel and trappings of the Old West without having to get too bogged down in a history lesson. The ways in which the world of Western Tails differs from the true eighteenth and nineteenth century in the human world are caused by a couple of factors. The world in Western Tails is inhabited by intelligent anthropomorphized animals known as Furries who possess human characteristics such as opposing thumbs, erect posture, use of tools, and so forth. The variety of Furry types, causing a civilization in which (though to a lesser extent than was true in previous centuries) species determines one’s place in society. Magic also works, to an extent
[7:34 PM]ceruleanfive: Hi! I’m Lucas Falk, I live in Sweden, and I’m a TTRPG designer by night, and a gaming culture folkbildare (peer-to-peer learning developer) by day. My current focus is Heroes of Cerulea. It’s a pixelated adventure tabletop role-playing game where you explore dungeons, fight monsters, solve puzzles, gather keys, find new items, and defeat bosses. It’s heavily inspired by the classic Legend of Zelda games, and by old-school role-playing. Lo-fi art and rules; high playability. It’s on Kickstarter right now. (done)
