I'm a fan of table top role playing games, and I don't believe you should go to the poor house trying to follow your hobby on occasion.

I'm interested in what you can do, Bruce

For those that know my content, that I've met at countless tables over the years, I have a inkling that your gray matter will provide my friends some good times, whether or not we are laughing at you cobbling together an overly complex RPG, or if your game would actually work for the table of players that I have.

This week, I've been compiling some quirks and flaws from various systems, and making them fit within the Game as I've been pulling it all together.  This is a herculean task, which is great, because every time I type one in, I take a drink.  RIP Kidneys.

Hello, Gamers and those of you viewing me from time to time.  I've been busy, being a ninja, and everything!  A fat ninja.  Sure, you're like, "Ninja Please."
Finally we are looking at the completion of the priors and particulars.  I've been writing through this when I have time, going through various amounts for character points, to see what you people would create, and if you could break the game.
We will see what happens, but look for more in the future!

Yikes, work had me with little time to post while I was busy taking care of inflating the amount of flaws and hindrances one person could have for their character.  Flaws are great things for characters to have in any RPG, and they allow you to add another dimension to your alter-ego.  Because this isn't going to be a fully printed out book with a binding which could have a Paizo-like life expectancy, I could conceivably add on such juicy things in time immemorial.  
But why?  I want to write this document, play test it, and then work on the bestiary.  Once that's ready for consumption, I think we have a bonafide potential to have a game that can grow with the community.

Wrote a bit on Events that Happened During Your Birth, over the last two days.  Condensing things from games that I love, into one gigantic tome, I expect that Old School players and GM’s that love Rolemaster will want to look at what’s happening.  I will be putting up a video later this week about the changes that are implemented in character creation, and why I feel that I need to write my own game.

Slowed down on content creation at the moment, watching the Kickstarter for Swords and Wizardry:  You Should Buy This edition.  Really, it's a damn good piece of work.  And it should make you feel like you're in middle school, again.

While I know nobody has signed up for this, that’s fine. I haven’t done much other than show that I have multiple posts from a day.  I am offering a ten dollar tier, for me to host a monthly game set in the Lost Lands on my youtube channel.  Should I actually have that fill up, I will have to make some changes and have TWO monthly game days, ha!  Let’s shoot for one.

As a point of snark, I feel that some role-playing games thrive on roll-playing.  That's fine and dandy within the spirit whence the table at play perceives the word, fun.  But there are times where dangling plot threads and character motivations are greater than some chunky modifiers on die rolls.  Because of the theater which goes on routinely at the table, one should look at how exactly wants to adjudicate the game.
Some characters might upset the balance of your table.  Some characters might be well within the defined rules, but with no context, just be out from left field.  There must be a reason, and explanation, as to why such a plethora of talent would be within one single entity...
and I present you referee's of table top RPG's...
Due to how The Game is, you can see that an 18 in an ability score is subject to be excited, and should the character be able to have modifiers, they would be the type of person who would be known as a pinnacle of that attribute for that race. Excited referees should make their players write an essay describing just how it is to be heralded by members of the community for being able to have such a blessed and natural ability to have such an ability score.

Example of Character Design, Part 2
David decides to make Mar-Rae Sue a Gnome. She's going to be quirky, and have personality traits which should make everyone love her. She will wear cargo pants on work days, and whatever could pass for a pantsuit on most other days of celebration. 
Mar-Ray Sue will have the ability scores notated as such.
STR 7(17)
DEX 14(59)
CON 13(34)
INT 7(73)
WIS 9(91)
CHA 19(14)


He smiles, he has evaded the possibility of having to write a lengthy essay on what is means to be so loved by everyone around her, since she doesn't have a 20 Charisma. She also has an amazing health score. Finally, he notes that her strength is absolutely horrible. David thinks that she will probably find some strong man, or at least someone to pair along with her, as she is so likable.
He notes her initial racial traits, and once again laughs. He doesn't have to write an essay on how she's just able to get free lessons on anything she wants to know how to do, assuming she isn't already knowing some secret information that others are without.
 “She's going to be loved by the gods!” David pours himself another shot. His referee will be so proud!
David notes that the Gnome race cost him eight Character Points, and that he has thirty-two left. He looks on to see just how he can min-max his character. He wants her to have every opportunity to get free experience points and levels. Does his referee allow him to pay the pizza guy when they arrive? Will it be in the rules that paying for the pizza helps your characters level up?

This document is a love letter to all the people who love playing The World's Most Popular Role-Playing Game, and all other forms of pen and paper Role Playing Games. I know I probably don't agree with the reader 100%, but let's just enjoy this hobby for what it is. Enjoy a drink, and continue, Dear Reader. For those of you who understand what I just typed, I think everyone should read, “The Eyes of the Dragon,” by Stephen King, to a younger relative, or friend. Such a good tale should be shared, if for nothing else, to provide the charcoal to light the fires of imagination, of their adulthood.
This is a document I am using as brain poop, some of it is pillaged from game systems I've played with before. Some concepts are mine. Game rules are not covered under threat of copyright, as of 2019, to the best of my knowledge. The OSR is such an example, and thank whomever you like for that, as it lets some people professionally pursue their dreams of earning money on their own creations, as long as credit is given to things like the OGL.
Not everyone may agree with the wording within this document. Enjoy the First Amendment.

Example of Character Design, Part 1:
 Her name will be Mar-Rey Sue. David decides to sit down and put aside the idea of what he might have learned in other table-top games. He sits with a pad of paper, and rolls the three, six-sided die, along with two ten sided die (one noted with a tens digit). David jots down the notations, and upon finishing, has a shot of a single-malt whiskey, because he accomplished something, today.


STR 9(17)
DEX 14(59)
CON 11(34)
INT 7(73)
WIS 9(91)
CHA 17(14)


David winces and looks at his character. She's likable. She isn't too strong, or wise, and she's borderline mentally handicapped at her initial creation. She has deft hands, as well, and that might pave a path to her survivability with Bruce as her referee for The Game.
It should be noted, that adhering to the rule of keeping the scores rolled for the ability scores, reward the character with fifty additional build points. Many players will want to arrange their rolls to suit themselves, so there is a hefty reward for keeping the low rolls where they lie.
Due to how The Game is, you can see that an 18 in an ability score is subject to be excited, and should the character be able to have modifiers, they would be the type of person who would be known as a pinnacle of that attribute for that race.

This is a placeholder for content.  While I rewrite the game that I would prefer to play, I am looking to find a few of you and at least have you become better acquainted with my material.  Once this page is up, I'll have some reasons up as to why you'd want to throw a Washington into my jar.  If you're giving me money, thank you.  Let me produce some things that you might like, first, okay?
