Bitter Decision Looms

Wow! It's been a long time! I haven't posted much because I haven't been working on anything. Everything I think of seems stupid, fruitless, pointless. The small press RPG world is neatly divided between OSR and story games, with the area between taken up by non-small press. I have no interest in designing for either camp, and no one else has any interest in what interests me, so why do I bother? I may finish up All Out Of Time, the game I was working on, and not bother releasing it. I'm not sure what I can do about anything except just continue doing this all for just myself, my own game groups. There doesn't seem to be any sense in releasing anything any more.


  1. Hey, Clash...what ARE you interested in designing? I'm sure there's SOME camp you can belong to. Even if it's your own.

    Writers write, designers design. No need to give yourself ultimatums.
    : )

    1. Hi JB!

      I belong to my own camp. as you so astutely noted! I just miss everyone else while I hang out here!

      You are right - I have already started back to work on All Out Of Time. Designers gotta design! I just poisoned all the weird looking things that are probably weeds first. :D

  2. Keep writing! You make good Stuff.
    I still want a design your on Starcluster Universe book (and a common preferred rule-set inside.)

  3. Oh I'd like to point out there are traditional games: Fragged Empire, NoW/OWN/etc coming out, Equinox, that's just three SF games off the top of my head. They may not be great 9or they might be I don't know.) Yet, they fall on traditional hard, and there are tons and tons and tons of fantasy traditional. You just got to know where to look. Just under half of them on the Q&A' Dan does are traditional for example.
