Downtime in Zyan

Oh my, I am so bad at doing promotion but better late than never. If you somehow missed it, check out the KS campaign for Downtime in Zyan hosted by Ben L and some eccentric molerats. 

I drew all the interior art and it seem like we unlocked the goal for me to draw a bit more. 

Hehe Ben had some issues with censorship because I drew some of the molerats naked waist down like Donald Duck but with more anatomic details. So there will be two editions, one for prude humans and one for molerats who don't believe in pants.

 I am using itchfunding to finance my Zine Month project: crafting the PDF of The Potato King, my third party module for the game Liminal Horror.

We need to craft more third party modules for small games.

This part of Evey's cyberpunk game, Cyber Explosions, stuck with me: 
"Oh, and finally, everything’s just a little cartoonish because otherwise this would probably be too nightmarish to be fun."
I kept thinking about the cartoonish aspect of the game I and thought that it could be great to publish an adventure illustrated in a near retro cartoony art style. So I drew a few characters and I wrote to Evey that if she ever find the energy to write me a small scenario for her game, that I would love to illustrate it to explore that art style. (Go buy Cyber Explosion to encourage her to write me something 😅)


This made me notice that we need to better support small games with third party adventures and modules.

I feel like this is something that is missing in the indy RPG scene. People publish good games that often pass under most radars because we don't support them with adventures and extra content. 

Imagine if no one ever wrote modules or content for Mothership or Troika, these games would not be what they are now.

Third party support is probably as important for the indy RPG scene as active reviewing is. People often say that we need more reviews, this is true but I feel like we also need to build more upon what we create to keep what we create alive but also to discover new things as it grow and transform through the work of others. 

Naturally this all need to be done while respecting the authors and their property of their work. I saw that some people online worried about the popularity of hacking small games, so I can imagine them worrying too about third party work. For me the indy RPG scene have always been a big collective jam and this is what made it interesting and rewarding for me, more than selling anything I made. But still, it is worth to take the time to think and care about how we do things. 

So yeah, I hope to see more small and nearly forgotten games get third party support in collaboration with their authors or as a way to help them.

Blending Troika's content

I had a lot of fun playing Pastel Schoolgirls with Evey as the GM, her RPG work is always unique and inspired.
 
Since this is a Troika based game, you can start a campaign with Pastel Schoolgirls and after a few school adventures send the pastel girls through the spheres to play other published Troika's modules for maximum weird mayhem!
 
The same can be done for Cyber Explosions if you feel more like blowing things up!
 
I feel like mixing up Troika content that have very different vibes have a lot of potential, you can explore very interesting genres contrasts.

Here is the link to Evey's work, get some of her games, it can help her little family a lot.

Ewoks Mausritter Hack

If for some odd reasons you want to play Ewoks with Mausritter, this somehow happened and I got the base stuff covered for you. Naturally it would require more work to be fully playable, like writing stats encounters and other stuff but I guess it is usable with a bit of improvisation.
