I'm going to start a #DnD formatting thread with this tweet to note some common pitfalls I notice while editing adventures. I'll come back to it as I have more thoughts. #RPG #TRPG #TTRPG
When you write an NPC's statistics in parentheses next to their name, it should look like this: NAME (ABBREVIATED ALIGNMENT SEX OR GENDER SUBRACE RACE STATISTICS). e.g. Fireface McDragon (LG female mountain dwarf knight)
Always indent inline subheads. Those are the subheads that are in bold and italics.

Hey #DnD adventure writers, I have some advice I want to share because I haven't seen many folks talk about it and I feel that it has been integral to both my success thus far, and my writing style as a whole.

Let's talk about toyetic adventure design. Here comes a thread:
What do I mean when I say "Toyetic"?

It originally refers to "the potential media properties have for being merchandised into toys". See the wiki for it:

For me (a #trpg writer) the term means "the degree to which something feels like a toy or playset"
Before writing elf games I worked in film, and before that I wanted to be a toy designer: to work for Playmates or Hasbro designing action figures. I had an eye for character designs and for elements that encouraged play and fun.

It turns out writing #DnD isn't that different.
