RPG From Scratch
Ever wanted to create your own tabletop RPG? Imagine it: a gleaming, glorious system combining everything you love about gaming and dropping the crap you can’t stand. Join us on a D.I.Y. docu-quest for tabletop roleplaying perfection as we design, test, and rebalance our own RPG From Scratch!
Follow this misfit band of homebrew hombres as they chronicle their tabletop trials and errors, grapple with game design, explore the art of mechanics and storytelling, adventure through epic playtesting campaigns, and inch ever close to building a roleplaying game that meets all of their needs with the end goal of sharing it with the world. New episodes every Monday.
Meet the Cast
Josh La Forge – The Tank
Armored to the teeth and strong as an ox, Josh keeps the party safe by deflecting dangerous topics and protecting good ideas behind his shield. When he is not adventuring, he enjoys lifting heavy things.
Doug Banks – The Rogue
Hides in the shadows away from the rest of the group – landing unseen strikes of comedy as attacks of opportunity. Able to shift out of danger and blame it on a bad internet signal. When not backstabbing, Doug uses his high Influence stat to convince people of the existence of ghosts and record the fallout.
Maxx Wessel – The Wizard
Maxx rocks a cloak like he stole it. Schooled in the many histories, his knowledge of useless novelty spells is unmatched in each of the nine magical realms. Banned from Lemuria and Atlantis, he consoles himself by reading alternate history books in which magic does not exist.
Liam Malone – The Cleric
Worshipful of nothing but the flesh, Liam repairs party injuries in the most uncomfortable ways possible. He carries a mace made from a bust of his own likeness and revels in imprinting it on enemies that the others dispatch. When he is not employed as a violent pervert, he spends him time composing bad poetry in hopes of finding an ill-suited mate.
