An actual real-life photo

It's about time this blog got an "about" page!

(for those wondering about the header image, it is by the fabulous and talented Luka Rejec of WizardThiefFighter!)

I'm Saker Tarsos, a first year grad student going into information science. I've been a TTRPG player since I was 6 and I found my dad's ADnD Monster Manual II, opened it up to the first page, and read the entry for Aboleth. Since then I've been constantly making things. If I stop, I will have broken the contract, and the long years will catch up to me all in a few seconds, reducing me to a pile of dust. To avoid such a dire fate, I blog.

-To provide interesting content generators. I want everyone who sees this blog to leave the session with a new idea in their heads that they can use in their games.
-To provide webtools that DMs can use from their phones in the middle of their games. This is a gap that has so far been unfilled, and anything that makes a DM's bookkeeping easier lets them focus more energy on the things that inspire them.
-To act as a hub for links to other great content in the community. There's so much excellent stuff out there that people don't often get to see.

-The Blasted Lands, a loose sandbox setting based on weird sci-fi where 90% of the content is made up of random generators.
-Rules (or a poignant lack thereof) for civ-building in sandbox rpg games, based off Dwarf Fortress and Kingdom Death.
-A system-agnostic module about quarantine, plague, and urban decay in a WWI-punk setting.

You can find me on any of the DIY or OSR Discords (Saker Tarsos#7223), or on G+. Alternatively, send me an email at sakertarsos@gmail.com.
