This is a thread about why gatekeeping #ttrpgs is stupid and makes you an asshole, and my thoughts on creating an inclusive, fun environment. Me: Playing RPGs since 1982. Boring old white dude.

1 - Do not go on about systems. Systems are, by and large, irrelevant. Do not say, "That system has too much math." There is literally no system where you can't hide the number crunching. Do not say, "That system is too simplistic."
There is no system you can't houserule to any level of complexity you like. Do not go on about systems. Systems don't matter.

Und weil es die liebe @chra war die mich wegen @KhazAndCrit drauf gebracht hatte, gibt's den #Duetgame Thread jetzt auch noch in deutsch für die #pnpde #ttrpg Twitter Blase 😘

Duospiele - 1on1 oder Duetgames - was ist das?

#Duetgame = 1 #ttrpg, 1 #GM / #DM + 1 Spieler

Du kannst ein Duetgame mit den Regeln von so ziemlich jedem #ttrpg spielen

Ich habe die meiste Erfahrung damit #DSA und #DnD / #dnd5e Duetgames zu leiten, aber ich habe auch schon #Duetgames in #Shadowrun und #Vampire the Masquerade gespielt und es hat super funktioniert und hat so viel Spaß gemacht!

1/ #Kollok1991
A Love Letter to #DavidLynch in the form of a #TTRPG
2/ When you think of #DavidLynch you think of #TwinPeaks, a show defined it’s quirky characters, otherworldly small town settings, and a cult following defined by early 90s Americana. #Kollok1991
3/ #TwinPeaks dared to look into small town life in both its earnest look into themes empathy vs secrecy and the horror that comes from what we view as normal. #Kollok1991

Recently, I've caught myself in the chance to explain #TTRPGs, #Twitch, (@Hyper_RPG specifically) to various adults and teachers. This thread is long, but pretty much encompasses everything I've been telling them. I teach middle school. We want to connect with the students, but,
More often than not, there's a disassociation. Adults still watch TV, while kids don't. Not like they used to. They watch their screens and whatever they can stream from there. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Twitch... Lately, I've been connected more with the kids than many adults.
When asked what I watch I list some of the popular shows, but often I list TTRPGs. I get more out of these RPGs than I do with most tv shows. TV's gotten stale, predictable, repetitive. There's a few gems, often ones streamed (Haunting of Hill House, Marvelous Mrs Maisel)

99.9% of my interactions with fans are delightful. #DeltaGreen fans, in particular, are a great bunch. They want to talk, they want to explore ideas within the paradigm, and most of all, they want to be frightened. So, new publisher, how to deal with the OTHER .1%?
Clear lines of communication make some people feel that they can say ANYTHING to you. I've had more than a few "WELL ASSHOLE!" emails and DMs. Usually, this is for something exceedingly stupid — like shipping a book to Australia with real, live, postal rates.
Other times, it's some political tangle and the language and insults are invariably worse. My policy is the same for both. 1) Did you order something <nameless numberhead guy>? 2) Here's your money back. 3) You're fired, don't come back.
