Hi, my name is Greg Lambert and I’m the author behind the Chronicles of Aeres. We’re creating a new unofficial setting for D&D 5th Edition with a lot of old school flair and high fantasy nostalgia, with influences from classic fantasy media and movies. Our Kickstarter has exceeded our funding goal. Appreciate you having me on, so ask away! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aeres/the-chronicles-of-aeres-a-classical-fantasy-setting-for-5e

Hey! So I’m Andrew Kolb, author and illustrator (and cartographer and designer I guess) of Neverland: A Fantasy Role-Playing setting!
It’s reimagines Neverland (from the works of J. M. Barrie) as a hexcrawl setting that promotes player-driven choices as the island is broken up into factions with different wants and needs. It’s designed (loosely) to work with 5th Edition but most of the numerous tables and monsters can work with other systems.

Good evening, my name is Shawn Conlin AKA Wulfric and I am the lead developer/artist/layout designer/everything but editor for Wolvesbane Manor. I’ve been running and designing D&D adventures for a number of years and recently started branching out into other systems. While working on a system-agnostic cryptid adventure, The Beast of Bray Road, I couldn’t find a system that captured the flavor and flexibility I wanted to see for the adventure. This where I got the idea for The W.A.T.C.H.: Worldwide Anomaly Trackers & Cryptid Hunters.
The game is designed primarily as a story- & character-focused investigation game that also allows for cinematic combat if desired. The intent was to provide an RPG that allows players to enjoy games ranging from government agents on secret missions to a reality TV crew shooting their next episode or even a group of friends and their pesky pet. The focus of each game session is to investigate the given case and build the story as a team until finally reaching a conclusion based on facts. The same adventure could have very different endings for a group ranging from capturing a cryptid or proving the sightings were hoax to the team scared themselves silly and came out with no hard evidence to prove or disprove the case.
During my initial search and build, I looked at a number of systems including GumShoe, Elemental, Cortex, Powered by the Apocalypse, and Alpha Duo. I decided I liked the idea of a rules light system that is easier to learn but offers the tools to handle complex scenarios. The result is a game whose mechanics can be distilled and presented on a single quick reference page while being employed to track complex scenarios over time with multiple independent factors easily tracked.

Hi, I’m Aurora, and I’m a ttrpgs content author from Italy. I’m working right now on the first important project of my small team (AGoN), the esoteric cyberpunk ttrpg Arcana Familia. It’s a game set in a cyberpunk setting with a strong horror element, where players play the roles of agents of a secret organization called Arcana Familia and of mysterious creatures called Aos.
The game rules system is based on game cards and Blackjack.
Happy to be here and thanks!

Hey Everyone! My name is Ian Lemke and I’m the designer and developer of the Talisman Adventures Fantasy RPG. I’m also the developer for The Expanse RPG. I got my start in the TTRPG industry back in the early 90s when I worked for White Wolf Publishing as a designer/ developer for Mind’s Eye Theatre and later Changeling: The Dreaming. Thanks for having me!

I believe the focus tonight is on Talisman though.

Greetings and salutations, everyone! My name is Jay and I’ve been into video games and role-playing for more than 30 years. I got started with Star Wars the Roleplaying Game by West End Games, but eventually migrated to GURPS, Marvel Super Heroes and D&D. I beta-tested the 5e rules while I was serving in Afghanistan with the Navy. I’m served 20 years as a broadcast journalist and retired 5 years ago. Last year I ran a Kickstarter for my creation, Better Backstories! We were 820% funded with $25,000 coming from all over the world.
Better Backstories is a card-based, system independent, genre neutral brainstorming system for developing characters, plots and more! They work kinda like tarot cards, but with less study and guesswork. They can also be used in-game by GMs to provide attitudes and quirks for NPCS, random weather patterns, and even landscape suggestions if your party goes off the map. Check out this One-Minute Backstory I created just the other day.

Hi! I’m Stephen, a.k.a. P0rthos. I’m a game designer in the Seattle area. I made Space Aces: TNG (The New Guidebook) a rules-lite, light-hearted happy & hopeful sci-fi RPG for rollicking romps through space.

The best way to describe the actual game is like if Lasers & Feelings had a transporter accident with Ironsworn while discussing Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
