Tabletop QOTD 2020-07-31

Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.

Are you going to participate in this year's # event

More of a direct RPG question; you can read about it at https://www.autocratik.com/2020/06/announcing-rpgaday2020.html

The basic idea is to keep up with writer's prompts to get creative and post something daily. I'm sure some of it will leak in here.




I'm planning to try to keep up, but not sure how that's going to work out, especially since I'll be moving towards the end of the month.

I think it's unlikely I will.
I'll look in on it, but I rarely work on writing prompts, it's just not the way my brain works.
Yeah, I am very much the same there

@Joseph Teller Indeed... I sometimes look at writing prompts to force me to stretch a bit. I almost never lack for things I want to write.
@Keith Davies - I never lack for things to write, I just don't have the consistency down. I try these to try to instill that in myself. If it's not for my livelihood, I tend to be less consistent than I would like.
Yeah, I have so many writings and designs, but no time to playtest or write!
I might look in.

Not this year. Every year, I start, and then get I miss a day and get frustrated with myself for missing ...

So I'm not even trying this year.

Guess so, though I'm behind already.

I regularly take a run at the A-Z Blog Challenge (succeeding more often than not), and I do try to get something done for NaGaDeMon (National Game Design Month)... haven't succeeded yet.

This kind of writing challenge doesn't do much for me, though.

If I remember to fit two in today I will have caught up.

Note I'm only doing it on social media. This kind of thing makes it hard to create actual useful evergreen content for a blog, plus so many people talking about the same thing at once is actually really bad for SEO.
