UbiquiCity - Press Release

// FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
// 10 FEB 2017

Enter the Augmented Future in UbiquiCity

In UbiquiCity, the world is augmented and identity is fluid. Satellite-guided cars drive themselves. Busy drones fill the skies. Cloud-assisted bots perform once-human jobs. Appliances, vehicles, buildings, media devices, products, streetlights, roadsigns and even toilets communicate electronically, all under the watchful eye of the AI called "CitySystem". For the inhabitants of the UbiComp zones, life is sweet. But not everyone in the city is so blessed.

Join the RPGs & Storygames Group on Goodreads.com

There's a new group on Goodreads.com, devoted to RPGs & Storygames. This group discusses books, rules and play aides written for GMs and Players of tabletop roleplaying games. We happily straddle the blurry line between RPG designers and GMs, so you don't have to be "pro" to join, but you do have to have an interest in writing or reading RPG rules.

DayTrippers GameMasters Guide Reviewed by Keith Mageau

"This is a book I would recommend to any GM that wants to cultivate great ideas and find useful suggestions on how to further develop their GM skills."

Keith Mageau has written an in-depth review of the DayTrippers GameMasters Guide on the RollingBoxcars blog. He dives in and summarizes the main contents of each section of the book, letting you know what you will find there, which I think is very useful for any prospective Player or GM when considering a new system.

DayTrippers Core Rules reviewed by David Guyll

David Guyll of Awful Good Games, designer of A Sundered World as well as tons of great Dungeon World material, has written a mechanical overview and review of the DayTrippers Core Rules. You can find it on his blog "PointsOfLight".

It's always nice to have one's writing commended, and in Guyll's words "The writing is where the game really shines." You can check out samples from both the Core Rules and the GameMasters Guide to get a taste.

Hexcrawl Chess

Lately I've been thinking (too much) about fusing hexagonal chess with a hexcrawl, and here's what I came up with. It requires an RPG ruleset but it's system-agnostic. I imagine something like Traveller but you could probably do it with a fantasy setting or anything else. It's an OSR-feeling kinda thing. The important part (I think) is that the RPG system should have very simple, cut-and-dry, combat rules.

103 New Roleplaying Games, thrice forged!


Last month, Game Designer Paul Czege proposed a challenge for all RPG designers out there: the ThreeForged Challenge. The idea was for these designers to collaboratively create a ton of new RPGs by passing around unfinished works like Exquisite Corpses. It's crazy, I know. But the ThreeForged challenge is over, and now the world has 103 new roleplaying games in it, created by 127 different designers!
