    Both my friend and I have made our own pen and paper RPG games, made from scratch, from dice system to rules to lore; mine is a Fusion/D20 based system revolving around different alternate realities and Apocalypse scenarios.

    Huh. are you me? Haha I've had the idea for quite a while but haven't really gotten to work on it till about a month ago. My friends have been giving me feedback and we are having a lot of fun working on it. I decided to use the d6 system as well, but I'm also taking inspiration from DnD and some of my video game background. I'm happy to see that there is a desire for this kind of project!

    Cheers from a fellow tabletop and RWBY fanatic, and best of luck on your project!

    Actually my friend and I have a party game that's up on Kickstarter right now. You should check it out.

    I'm in the process of designing a card game now. It is presently in beta. That's how I found this site. I was looking for a place to talk about games in general.

    It took me a long time to get to the stage I am at now. Mostly because of procrastination on my part.

    I was working on at least 2 different card games, but I literally have no idea how to 'formally' format the rules into something that could be shown to people and played.

    Plus, Playtesting is a little harder.
    The idea was that it was a 'siege' card game, you send dudes down lanes to attack, you could send them through the central path but the enemies would be coming out through there too..Or you could send them through the right and left paths, but it was more difficult to do so as the walls and fortifications were on those paths. I was working on 3 factions: One that had power when their units were arranged in certain ways, one that had sneaky traps and stealth tricks, and another that had weak units but they could build unique fortifications and repair their fortifications in the middle of a battle.

    When you say "was" working does that mean you have stopped, or that you've hit a wall?

    That game sounds neat! Could you tell me a little more about it? Is it cooperative? How do you build units? Kill units? etc.

    I used a template from the game crafter to help with my rules. They've also got a booklet if you need that, but the document should help with a little structure. Here is the link:

    I have aided and abetted a friend of mine in making a table top. Echoes of the Fall is fully developed, play tested, and epic! You pilot a humanoid battle mech, your PHASMA, and fight PHASMA of the opposing faction. Fight for the Fringe of Coalition in the post-nuclear war torn world of Akrion. Check out more at our Kickstarter! All we need is funding. The game is ready to print!

    I have just spent the last 2 years creating a 28mm RPG style tabletop fantasy skirmish game. It has been fun and challenging but now it is currently on kickstarter to help raise the funds to get the miniatures sculpted.

    The game itself is streamlined and still has tactical and strategic elements to master which makes it ideal for beginners and experienced players in the tabletop and DnD world.

    Yea, I've been working with an indie developer doing design and art. It's been really fun and rewarding.
    Check it out here, and if you like it, please back us. The game has playtested really well so far.

    If you are a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise, you should check out this board game before it's too late!

    Yes, I am in the process of making a test prep game for my students. It's a physics test prep with some steampunk elements. The spinner is made of metal and rests on a gear and the cards look like they were written on old paper:

    I love that there are so many creative ambitious people out there designing great new games! As a beer enthusiast and game lover, I wanted to make a game where your pint glass reflects how you play the game on your turn. The point of the game isn't to get drunk but to use your resources effectively to win, so your pint glass is like another component of the game.

    It's gone through 12 versions now and this has been the best one, its fit for any player-casual or hardcore & open to any kind of drinker (light or heavy), it's completely up to the player.


    Basic overview is that you work together to add hit points onto outlaws but only 1 of you can win the trophy by dishing out the final blow. There are three major resources in the game; Beer, Money & Abilities. Many of these resources are shared and must be recycled back into the community for forward momentum, thus giving the game a fragile balance of power. It’s all about teamwork, deception, resource management and well-timed executions... and you might get a little tipsy during the process.

    I'm going to launch the kickstarter this month and have been trying to get the word out to interested parties. Hope you guys like it :)

    I'm currently working on a Borderlands RPG based off the D&D 5e system, and a friend made a homebrew version of UNO called "UNO form hell" which is pretty much UNO designed to cause as much rage as humanly possible.

    Figured I'd post here instead of making a new topic. I've been working on a tabletop RPG for the last few years and we went to kickstarter last week. We're half way to the funding goal and things are looking pretty good. Feel free to ask me any questions about it or check out the let's plays we've done of the game with various podcasts (all found in the Media section). The Tabletop Potluck one I wasn't personally involved in, but it's incredibly funny.
