I do not know what I’m saying.
My schedule has lastly settled down. I’m caught up. And I intend to remain that approach. Well timed releases of articles on time and no extra laying aside the Rigidity Cube guidelines hack. I gotta get that out as a result of a lot will depend on it, together with a Kickstarter launch and a bunch of future hacks associated to one thing that rhymes with Clown Mode.
What’s coming this month? That’s an excellent query and an ideal segue into the…

What’s that mysterious Slapdash occasion? Nicely, it’s a form of previewy-type alpha-testy-debriefy maybe-questiony-answery factor. I don’t actually know. I simply understand it’ll be my likelihood to speak concerning the by-then completed Slapdash Alpha Playtest and what comes subsequent. It’ll be recorded and launched for supporters.
And that gives an ideal segue into…
I’ve talked just a few instances concerning the Slapdash RPG Engine. I’ve mentioned a whole lot of random issues, however there’s nonetheless a whole lot of confusion and I’m getting a whole lot of questions. So let me attempt to make clear a bit, although please understand that there’s some particulars that I’m taking part in near the vest proper now and there’s some particulars that I haven’t labored out.
Slapdash is a light-weight however crunchy fantasy tabletop roleplaying recreation system I’m presently growing. It’s not the large, superior Indignant RPG that’s nonetheless nicely over a 12 months away or longer. It’s a facet challenge. It began in response to the WotC OGL Crapshow again in January and has since became a factor.
I envision Slapdash as one thing the scale and weight of Savage Worlds. And I’d prefer to distribute it earlier than the top of the 12 months. Which may not be potential, however it’s my purpose. And I’ll maintain you within the loop about it. In its remaining kind, Slapdash will comprise a PDF that you could purchase on the Indignant Video games store.
Someday in late spring or very early summer season, Frienemy-tier Supporters on Patreon and Subscribestar can have entry to an Early Entry or Beta-Kind model of Slapdash they will strive. And they are going to be invited to supply restricted suggestions. As I iterate the design and proceed to playtest with my very own secret circle, I’ll replace the Early Entry model. When Slapdash is lastly and utterly accomplished, those self same supporters will obtain that model without spending a dime as nicely. And thereafter, those self same supporters will obtain periodic bonus content material designed to be used with Slapdash. This replaces the D&D-specific bonus content material I’ve put out in years previous as that can turn into more and more out of date as WotC films towards releasing One D&D and since I now not really feel protected releasing content material for D&D regardless of WotC’s assurances that every one is nice.
Notice, nonetheless, that the foundations hacks I launch publicly will proceed to be usable in D&D 5E, together with the upcoming City Mode hacks. I simply gained’t produce D&D-specific bonus content material anymore out of an abundance of warning and since it’ll quickly be rendered out of date.
In the meantime, I can even proceed to share particulars with my followers all through the design and improvement course of.
In order that’s it. That’s the story of Slapdash. And that’s additionally what to anticipate from me this March.
