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!)
ABOUT MEI'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.
BLOG GOALS-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.
CURRENT PROJECTS-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.
CONTACT MEYou can find me on any of the DIY or OSR Discords (Saker Tarsos#7223), or on G+. Alternatively, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
