Max McGee
My name is Legion: for we are many.
Hi, my name is Max McGee. I have a mood disorder, an anxiety disorder, moderate to severe Crohn's disease, and way too much free time. I make tabletop roleplaying games for a living and RPG video games for fun. I have over ten years of experience with the latter. It hasn't always been easy--plenty of the time it's straight-up sucked-- but I'm never going to give up.

"To the quitters and the complainers,
if we never meet again, remember when.

They lost their nerve
They just went straight
They didn't have the balls to hold it down and they brought everybody else right down with them.
While clowns must stand.

We'll make a toast to absent friends and better days,
To remembering and being remembered as brave
And not as a bunch of whining jerks!

Don't lose your nerve.
Do not go straight
You must testify (or I'm going to come to your house and punch you in the mouth)
cause clowns must stand."

And uh, I can't believe it's come to this, but: Ahem.

Hehe, yes, I could 'NPC' if you want. Or...well if it was a regular weekly session, I'd volunteer to be an understudy or a substitute. But of course I'd prefer to PC, but (again of course) it's up to you.

Horror Genre in RPG Maker

It is really not that popular I would say. Probably less than 10% of games made in RPG Maker are 'horror'.

Although it can be difficult to classify: horror is a word often used both as a 'genre genre' (as in science fiction, fantasy, etc) and as a 'gameplay' genre (ie RPG, action etc).

Anyway, my answer amounts to what Sated said: ease of use. RPG Maker is the best tool currently available (that I know of) to someone with my limited skillset to make a horror video game.

Luxaren Allure is COMPLETE! :DDDDDD

Congratulations on finishing another game, dudette. Shit is fucking hard to do.

Aww...put me in coach, I'm ready to play. : )

Star Citizen allegedly going bankrupt, development mired by turnover, racism, sexism

I was pretty excited about Star Citizen, but not excited enough to back. Actually, come to think of it, in the god knows how many KS projects we've backed, very few were videogames, with the exception of the two by Harebrained Schemes.

I remain...cautiously excited. But if it does crash and burn, at least I have sweet, sweet Elite Dangerous to scratch this particular itch. It started with a modest fraction of the features Star Citizen promises, if I'm not mistaken, and is gradly ramping up to a much less modest fraction over time. I have sunk a ton of hours in it and it's awesome.

What are you thinking about right now?

my cat has serious abandonment issues, which he expresses by knocking things on the floor. even more than usual for a cat. which is saying something.

Smash your controllers, smash your shit, smash your kids.

Dark Souls, Blight Town is the only thing I can remember that ever made me kill a controller. God I practically have PTSD just thinking about fucking Blight Town.

And I have anger issues in general so...yeah.

I'm tentatively signing up, what frequency of posting is expected?

I make this kind of roleplaying game for a living, so very little needs explained to me except the peccadilloes specific to 5th Edition. (Very well versed in 3.X, not a great fan of 4E.)

Edit: I seem to be one person too late. Hopefully DM can see his way to doing a six person party.


11/25 participants actually turned a thing. not bad, almost 50%.

So it's been 2 years.

why are you still using XP (for that project in particular, I mean)? just comfort/familiarity?
